Why is the radiation rate so important?
Many manufacturers communicate on the performance rate of the radiators, which approaches the 100% whatever the marks (the principle of the electric efficiency). The power of an electrical appliance should mandatorily appear on the nameplate. Whether it is a vacuum cleaner or a radiator, your consumption will correspond to the power of the appliance relative to the duration of use. The problem is that this data is also not sufficient to compare electric heaters with each other! Indeed, two radiators of 1000 Watts will not ensure the same comfort, nor the same speed of heating. So, in the end, 2 radiators of 1000 Watts will not have the same consumption. Indeed, an effective device will only work 5 hours per day, when another will need to heat 10 hours, with uneven comfort!
Consequently, if the legislation does not oblige manufacturers to communicate on truly representative data of heating quality, it will be difficult to compare. The rate of radiation is an essential factor. Combined with the power of radiation (and other factors) it reflects the radiator’s ability to provide maximum thermal energy in the room.
The infrared radiators DEGXEL have an exceptional radiation rate on the market> 72% *. Combined with a homogeneous temperature distribution on the radiator front, and especially with the use of high-density insulation on the rear (in order not to unnecessarily heat the back of your wall), our radiators are among the most efficient heat emitters in Europe. It is precisely this radiation rate that allows very low consumption.
(*) Note that most manufacturers have less than 50% radiation. Sometimes much less (10%) when talking about the “radiating” radiators available in mass retail. If a brand announces more than 70% of radiation, ask for the excerpt of the study which confirms this figure!
These results (see Stuttgart study – Germany 2016) are due to our company’s determination to use the best radiant materials, without compromising price or quality, as well as the constant search for technical improvements on our products.
