Faq on baseboard radiant heaters
The THERMODUL system can work with any kind of boiler, heat pump, wood-burning or heating stove and requires no particular technological solution.
It is only tax-deductible if the existing boiler is also replaced with a condensing boiler and solenoid or thermostatic valves installed
Firstly because the amount of water contained within the system is extremely low, so the boiler runs for less time to bring the system up to speed. Even heat distribution and the absence of any upward stratification allows the thermostat setting to be kept 1-2°C lower than with a traditional system.
The system must be dimensioned depending on the building’s heat dispersion. An installation drawing is drafted giving priority to the exterior walls and then extending to the interior walls until the required quantities are reached.
This can be done either by installing a separate connection for each room, connected to a thermostatically controlled distribution manifold, or by using the kit supplied by Hekos
It can be inset into a wall without hindering the system’s heat output
The panels can be curved up to a 1m radius.
Standard colours are RAL9010 white, dark bronze and oxidised (natural). Also available are RAL colours and other special colours that can be viewed in the model section or by downloading the colour chart
The walls don’t get soiled because the amount of convection is so minimal and slow that no dust gets carried.
The system contains a total of around 30cl/m of water between delivery and return. For an equivalent output it contains 1/5th of the amount of water of a traditional radiator
It is recognised for its even heat distribution and because it is a healthy system that does not lift any dust or dry out the air.
The system can be installed even if other areas have different systems or even to supplement an existing system.
Walls that are not heated using the THERMODUL system can be completed by mounting only the decorative panel
If the cupboard is fitted against a particularly dispersant exterior wall it is nevertheless advised that this system be mounted at the rear so that there will be no direct radiation effect but the skirting board will act upon the structure thus counteracting the heat dispersion of the exterior wall.
No, if the furniture is kept at least 1cm away from the decorative panel of the skirting board, the system will cause no damage to furnishings and the heat output will not be compromised in any way.
The system can even be mounted against the baseboards of fixed furniture items such as kitchen cabinets, bookcases and wardrobes. This solution will not compromise heat output and will not harm the furniture.
It is a solution used to heat large areas such as churches, gyms, schools, nursery schools or spaces where the heating requirement is so high that standard solutions are simply inadequate
This is Hekos’ answer to heating bathrooms and kitchens and it can be equipped with towel rails.
This is the solution to be adopted in places where wall-mounting is not feasible (glass façades, exposed stone walls). The system is floor-mounted, thereby leaving the vertical surfaces free.
It depends on the power rating of the system to be installed but the heating element yield is close to 100% so the power rating of each individual heating element is the same as its heat output.
Coupling it to a solar power system is the perfect solution for this system because the system running costs get reduced.
It is suggested that solar heating be used to supplement other sources of heat .
This is a European standard that establishes the parameters according to which heating element yield tests are conducted. The THERMODUL system was tested at the Laboratory of the Milan Polytechnic Department of Energy
With one connection, a circuit with a maximum heating core length of 20m can be made up. If more length is required the use of multiple connections is recommended
The small quantity of water contained in the system means that once the circuit has been purged at the time of the initial start-up it does not need to be purged again.
Due to problems caused by the formation of condensation, it is preferable for the system not to be used for cooling purposes
