Multifamily houses - Flats and apartments

Electric heating for multifamily houses

Considering residents’ comfort and safety, reduction of environmental impact as well as final operational costs, electric heating is the ideal solution for multifamily houses.

Modern technology gives owners and managers of properties many ways to improve the energy efficiency and safety of their buildings. Furthermore, while planning a new build, renovation or refurbishment, not only should we respect local environmental law, but we should also think about the natural heritage for generations of the future.

Discreet and invisible floor heating gives you more and better possibilities, to design your interior as you wish, but first of all - improves the overall thermal comfort in your home. Moreover, the electric floor heating has an advantage of precise regulation and fast reaction time.

Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
Thanks to heat distribution from the floor and precise temperature control, the average room temperature can be reduced by 1-2 °C compared with traditional radiator heating, without influencing the thermal comfort or even improving it. This enables reducing energy losses by 10-20%, which is both economically and environmentally beneficial.

Among the range of electric heating products, you can find solutions tailored to each kind of a floor cover, and intelligent thermostats to keep desired warmth, and control energy consumption.
