Electric Radiant Heaters
Recently it’s been brought to my attention a type of electric radiant heater, made by Radiant Systems, that mount on a wall up near the ceiling. http://www.radiantsystemsinc.com/inthehome/ I was wondering how well they would work in a superinsulated house in a cold climate?
I understand that a number of years ago electric radiant panels in the ceiling were all the rage, but there were issues with durability, maintenance, and uneven heating in poorly insulated buildings. These heaters should have less issues with durability and maintenance, and purchase and installation costs looks attractive, but I wonder about uneven heating? In a well-insulated house will the walls and furniture heat up so that wherever you are in a room you will feel the same level of comfort?
Does anyone have experience with this particular company, or can recommend any other company with a similar product?
