The energy efficiency of a heating system is directly dependent on the flow temperature of the system. The lower the system-specific flow temperature, the less additional energy has to be used to achieve the desired room temperature. A low flow temperature saves energy. In addition, a low flow temperature enables more efficient use of ambient heat and other regenerative energy sources.
Due to the thermal resistance of heated screed and floor covering, the flow temperature of conventional underfloor heating, depending on the installation distance and the floor covering, is 40 ° C and more.
Due to the location of the capillary tubes directly on the surface, the BEKA ceiling heating, on the other hand, manages with a flow temperature of 30 ° C in order to heat a room sufficiently. The savings potential is directly dependent on the energy source. When using a brine-water heat pump, for example, a flow temperature of 10 ° C lower can mean a 40% reduction in electricity costs.
In addition, due to the large number of capillary tubes that are only 10-15mm apart, the heat is distributed very evenly over the entire ceiling surface. This is not only verifiable with thermographic recordings, but can also be felt very well.
