Wooden Church, Ukraine

Comfort heating

The modern wooden church, Ascensio Domini in Dubno, needed an effective, energy-efficient, and invisible heating system with low operation costs.

The system should heat when necessary and distribute heat evenly to provide comfort to visitors. During the other period, the purpose is to support an established temperature level. Electricity was the only source that could be used for heating of the church. The floor heating system was chosen as the best option.

The floor is mostly covered with tiles. The surface was divided into four zones. Two basic zones are controlled by DEVIreg™ 550 programmable thermostats with intelligent timer, whereas two additional zones are connected to the basic ones and are regulated by automatic switches. The wooden surface altar space was covered with a DEVIdry™ heating system.

Project overview


Heating cables
DEVIbasic™ is a high-quality, braided screen, single conductor cable with a non UV stable outer sheath. Its round profile and robust construction ensures a fast, simple and safe installation in multiple indoor, outdoor and pipe tracing applications.
Heating mats
DEVIdry™ is a floor heating system consisting of a foam construction only 8 mm high with heating elements inside. This all-in-one heating element and underlay system can be used under wooden floorings, parquets and laminates up to 22 mm (and even carpets with DEVIdry™ Plug Kit). The system has been tested with flooring materials with insulation values from 0.05 to 0.18 m2 K/W. To ensure a long life-time, all heating elements are minutely inspected including tests for Ohmic resistance, high voltage and material controls to ensure the quality. DEVIdry 100W/m2 is designed for concrete subfloor and wood, laminate or carpet as a top floor.
