About Our Radiant Heat Ceiling Panels

Radiant ceiling panels provide highly efficient, uniform heating by emitting warmth directly to objects and people, using far infrared radiation like the sun. 

Ideal for both residential and commercial spaces, these panels are space-efficient, energy-saving, and maintain a clean, silent operation. 

They blend seamlessly with various architectural styles and are favored for their minimal maintenance and ability to reduce dust circulation.

Benefits of Radiant Ceiling Panels

Potential Downsides of Radiant Ceiling Panels

Cost Of Radiant Ceiling Panels

The total cost of a radiant heat panel can be broken down into three parts: the upfront cost, the installation cost, and the running cost. 

The cost for each of these can change based on the type of panel you choose, whether that’s electric, carbon fiber, or convection radiant panels.

Type Upfront Cost Range Output Range Daily Running Cost
(8 Hours Per Day)
Electric Radiant Ceiling Panels $469-$1,399 350W-1150W $0.64-$2.12*

* Based on the US National Average Electricity Price of $0.23 kWh

How To Install Radiant Ceiling Panels

Our radiant heat panels are designed for straightforward installation and are delivered with an extensive set of instructions. 

We have a network of Accredited Installers who are happy to provide assistance – but equally, we can work with any electrician, to help them with the installation process. 

1. Positioning

  • Ensure the panel is not obstructed by furniture and is not placed in room corners or near doorways.
  • White panels are suitable for ceiling mounting; verify with your dealer before proceeding.
  • Locate a ceiling joist for firm mounting of the brackets.
  • For ceiling grid mounting, avoid placing insulation directly on the rear of the panel.
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 25 mm from the back of the panel to the mounting surface using the provided hardware.
  • Objects should be at least 400 mm away from the front and 200 mm from the sides of the panel.
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 800 mm between adjacent heaters

2. Safety Warnings

  • Installation must be performed by trained, approved engineers or competent persons.
  • For hard wiring, use suitably qualified personnel.
  • Adhere to national electrical safety standards; it’s a Class 1 appliance and must be earthed.
  • In public areas, comply with local electrical standards and specific legislation for buildings like schools and care homes. 

3. Electrical Installation

  • Connect to a circuit protected by a fuse, RCD, or GFCI suitable for the appliance’s rating.
  • Use a thermostat for temperature control.
  • Follow color coding for the mains cable: Brown (Live ‘L’), Blue (Neutral ‘N’), Green/Yellow (Earth ‘E’).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, radiant ceiling heat is effective and efficient. It provides uniform heating that is more comfortable than convection heating systems, maintains good air quality by not circulating dust or allergens, and is energy-efficient as it heats objects and people directly.

The biggest disadvantage is the initial installation cost, which can be higher compared to traditional heating systems. Also, in spaces with very high ceilings, their heating effectiveness can be reduced.

No, radiant ceiling heat is not a fire hazard when installed and maintained correctly. These systems are designed with safety in mind and do not have open flames or high-temperature surfaces.

After being turned off, rooms heated with electric radiant ceiling panels can retain warmth for a variable amount of time, typically ranging from a few minutes to an hour. This duration depends on factors like room insulation, outside temperature, and the material properties of the room’s contents. Radiant heat tends to create a lasting warm environment, as it heats objects and surfaces, which then slowly releases the heat back into the room.

The lifespan of electric radiant ceiling heating systems can vary, but they generally last between at least 20 to 30 years. This depends on the quality of the system and adherence to maintenance guidelines.

The running cost of radiant ceiling heat can vary based on several factors like electricity rates, insulation of the space, and how the system is used. However, due to its efficient heating method, it is often less expensive than conventional heating systems and can sometimes lead to energy cost savings.

The ideal height to install a radiant ceiling panel is between 8-10 feet.

If the ceiling height exceeds 10 feet you have a few options:

 

1) Opt for a larger panel. For example if you are purchasing a 400W Inspire Comfort White Frameless Radiant Heat Panel, then you can move up to the 700W model.

2) Add a second panel and span them to provide stronger, even heating over a larger target area.

3) Consider installing the panel on a wall instead of the ceiling, if this fits with the room layout and design requirements.
