The water capillary mat system can be used for:
- underfloor heating;
- heating and cooling, if the system is installed in the ceiling or walls.
The ceiling is the largest free space in the room, thus it is recommended to mount the system on the ceiling, supplementing it with installation on the walls or floor, if it is necessary to provide more heating or cooling capacity.
Benefits of the Hydrokapillare heating system
sufficient flow temperature of +25-30°C, due to the large area coverage with capillary tubes
significantly reduced circulation of dust, viruses and bacteria together with the air flow, which is especially important to limit the spread of COVID-19
does not cause dry air and creates a pleasant indoor climate
requires less dry concrete (Estrich) and other levelling finishing materials for underfloor heating
can be installed on the ceiling or walls and in combination with a room cooling system
According to a report by an independent expert in the field of energy-efficiency, SIA "Ekodoma", based on the characteristics of the system, the amount of CO2 generated per year by the Hydrokapillare system is 3.25 kg CO2/m2 less than that generated by classic under-floor heating system and 5.9 kg CO2/m2 less than the radiator system.
The water capillary mat system can be connected to various sources of heat/cold supply.
When calculating the required heating and cooling capacity in a room, the thermal conductivity of the chosen finishing material must be taken into account - the higher it is, the higher the efficiency of the heating / cooling system will be.
In the case of capillary heating, a person feels a temperature of 2-3 degrees higher than the air temperature in the room.
