Invisible heat source in the winter, pleasant cooling in the summer without a draught. To good to be true? Fortunately not. That is precisely what the x-net panel heating systems and cooling systems can do. With high performance and durability, x-net ensures thermal comfort is pleasant, regardless of whether in the shape of wall heating, underfloor heating or when used in commercial and industrial applications. In residential properties, in contrast to classic radiators for example, wall and underfloor heating offer a number of benefits:
Six good reasons for Kermi x-net underfloor heating
The way that underfloor heating or wall heating works is as simple as it is ingenious: pipes are laid in the floor (or in the wall respectively) which have hot or cold water flowing through them later on. The hot water transfers its energy through the pipe into the floor and thereby evenly heats up the room - ensuring that you can walk around barefoot in the winter as well if it takes your fancy. Cold water takes warmth out the floor and thereby cools the room evenly - a real pleasure in the summer. The cooling function is not only considerably more pleasant that a conventional air conditioning system because it does not create any draughts, it also saves on expensive electrical energy.
Selecting the right underfloor heating system depends for example on what floor you want to lay later on and/or whether you are working on a new-build or renovating. Essentially, a distinction is made between two basic systems: system for wet installation (e.g. x-net C11, x-net C12) and systems for dry installation (e.g. x-net C13). To select the right system, your competent Kermi Specialist partners near you would be glad to provide assistance.
By the way: The Romans already used underfloor heating - the basic principle used then was quite similar to the way that modern underfloor heating systems work.
Yes, it can. And it is easier than you think. Kermi offers special underfloor heating systems for renovation which make retrospective installation of underfloor heating significantly easier. With the x-net C16 clip system, the x-net C15 thin layer system and the x-net C13 dry system , retrospective installation is quick and effortless. If the conditions on the construction site do not allow underfloor heating to be installed, then the wall heating systems x-net C21 and x-net C22 are the systems of choice for renovation. With regards to comfort and function, wall heating and underfloor heating are identical only that the heating is installed in the walls which are more easily accessible. This makes wall heating ideal for use in renovation.
The plus for renovation:
You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. Particularly in the commercial sector, components used need to be durable, tough, and reliable. The x-net C14 industrial panel heating disappears invisibly into the ground, ensuring a pleasantly heated or cooled environment in summer and winter. Advantage of industrial panel heating by Kermi: It is installed directly into the robust concrete floor - ensuring quick and easy installation and providing optimal heating and cooling output.
