Panel heating and cooling

Invisible heat source in the winter, pleasant cooling in the summer without a draught. The x-net panel and underfloor heating systems provide precisely that. High performance and durable, x-net ensures pleasant thermal comfort when used as underfloor heating or wall heating. The versatile means of installation are suitable for a wet system in the screed as well as dry on the screed. The knob, clip, klett or tacker systems offered can thus be used to perfection both at home and in commercial and industrial applications. In the living area, for instance, wall and underfloor heating provide a number of benefits in contrast to classic radiators.

x-net panel heating/cooling benefits:

  • Comfort: thanks to pleasant radiant heat
  • Energy efficiency: thanks to low flow temperature
  • Environmentally friendly: ideal in combination with alternative energy sources
  • Creative freedom: the perfect heating for new-builds, modernising old buildings or when renovating
  • Health: hygienic comfort without dust dispersion
  • Quality of life throughout the year: thanks to the heating and cooling function in one system

Insulation-free systems

Anyone who needs to pay special attention to ensuring the panel heating construction is particularly low, will find the perfect solution in the Kermi systems without insulation. Optionally as a clip system, a klett panel, as a knob element, or a thin layer system.

Systems with insulation

If the necessary installation height is available, then underfloor heating with insulation is the best choice. The insulation reduces the energy costs and increases comfort.

Wall heating

Wall heating provides comforting warmth across the surface of the wall into the room. With its low flow temperatures, it is ideally suited for low temperature heating systems. With solutions for new-builds and renovation.

Electrical solutions

Electric underfloor heating is particularly suitable in locations where there is no  central hot water heating available or only a very low installation height is possible. An ideal solution, particularly for renovations.

Industrial panel heating

Panel heating for commercial and industrial buildings allows optimal use of the rooms without radiators taking up any space or disrupting the work flow. Apart from that, there are then no cleaning and maintenance costs and effort for heat exchangers.

x-net system components

x-net® home station

With underfloor heating manifold: For hygienic domestic water heating and efficient heat supply.

Can be operated with all heat sources - x-net home stations ensure hygienic domestic water heating using the continuous flow principle and efficient heat supply using an integrated underfloor heating manifold and direct heating circuit.

x-net® controls

Heating comfort at the press of a button.

Clever control for panel heating and cooling. This means the desired heating comfort can be set individually for every room. Clever control also means: Save cleverly. x-net control is available in two product lines, to precisely suit the particular requirements.

x-net® connect

Two problems – one solution.

Kermi does away with uncontrolled heat dissipation – with the x-net connect systems, heat is specifically guided past the screed in the area of the underfloor heating manifold to render an efficient and controlled heating operation possible. That way, major heat losses in this area can be prevented.

x-link® plus

The perfect connection between design radiator and underfloor heating.

The connection fitting with a white or chrome cover perfectly fits the 50 mm connection to the compact bathroom radiator.

How does underfloor heating actually work?

The way that underfloor heating or wall heating works is as simple as it is ingenious: Instead of installing radiators in the room, pipes are laid in the floor or wall, which have hot or cold water eventually flowing through them. The hot water transfers its energy through the heating pipe to the floor and heats up the room as evenly as a radiator. This means you can even walk around barefoot in the winter if you like.

And why can it also cool?

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 than a conventional air conditioning system as 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 eventually want to lay and/or whether you are working on a new-build or renovating. Essentially, a distinction is made between two basic systems: systems for wet laying in the screed, like the x-net C11 knob system or the x-net C12 tacker system, and systems for dry laying, like the x-net C13 dry system. The expert Kermi specialist partner near you will be happy to assist you in selecting the right system.

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.

Wall and underfloor heating: Can it also be installed retrospectively?

Yes, it can. And it is easier than you think. Kermi offers special underfloor heating systems for renovation, which make the replacement of radiators with 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 at the construction site do not permit underfloor heating to be installed, the x-net C21 and x-net C22 wall heating systems are the means of choice for the renovation. With regards to comfort and function, wall heating and underfloor heating are identical, except that their heating pipes are installed in the walls which are more easily accessible. This makes wall heating ideal for use in renovation.

Benefits for renovation:

  • renovation and refurbishment while occupied
  • can be laid without chiselling and demolition work
  • extremely low installation heights
  • compatible with various floor coverings

underfloor heating and cooling in the commercial sector The plus for use in industry

You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. Particularly in the commercial sector, underfloor heating systems need to be durable, tough, and reliable. The x-net C14 industrial panel heating disappears invisibly into the floor, ensuring a pleasantly heated or cooled environment in summer and winter. Advantage of industrial panel heating by Kermi: The heating pipes are installed right in the resistant concrete floor – ensuring quick and easy installation and optimum heating and cooling output.

Benefits for use in industry

  • adjustable installation bracket for the industrial panel heating manifold
  • x-net pipe dispenser for ergonomic pipe handling
  • can be used with many types of concrete, such as reinforced steel concrete, pre-stressed concrete, vacuum concrete, fibre-reinforced concrete
  • professional support with planning and on location
