Having sold competitor radiant heat panels for a number of years, Jimmy Gargan was determined the technology could be improved and founded Pureheat Radiant Heat Panel Technologies in 2012. Jimmy initially established a testing facility in Kingscourt, County Cavan and went on to design the most energy-efficient heat panel seen on the market. After rigorous research and development, in partnership with engineers in Dundalk Institute of Technology, Pureheat successfully launched a range of heat panels and picked up a number of awards along the way. We are now well established as the leading radiant heat technology experts in Ireland, having installed thousands of panels nationwide, and continue to design and manufacture from state-of-the-art facilities in Dundalk, County Louth.
Being electric, our radiant heat panels can simply plug in but, to monitor and regulate temperature, manage comfort levels and ensure optimum efficiency, just add Pureheat-approved controls.
Pureheat Approved controls take advantage of the latest wireless technology to integrate your Pureheat Radiant Panels into a smart, state-of-the-art, energy-saving heating system, with features including:
- Proximity Sensing for activation prior to arriving home;
- Occupancy Sensing preventing heating empty spaces;
- Remote Control via handset or smartphone app (4G and / or WiFi required); and
- Effective Zoning – multi-zone to micro-zone heating, providing heat only where you need it.
From independent testing and evaluation, to lifecycle cost studies and testimonials from our customers, our radiant heat panels are proven to be the heating solution for the future.
An independent lifecycle assessment was carried out on a selection of the most widely used heating technologies to identify the energy efficiency and cost benefits of PureHeat Radiant Heat Panels.
A PureHeat panel was compared with oil boilers, natural gas boilers, heat pump technologies and electric storage heaters for a two-story detached house in Dublin. The house has a floor area of 228m2 and is assumed to have a heat load of 20W/m2 for the baseline calculation.
Lifecycle data was generated using RETScreen, an energy assessment software that includes heating and cooling degree days as part of the calculations, providing a more realistic evaluation of the heating requirements on a month-by-month basis, over an operational life of 15 years.
The assessment takes into account installed costs plus operation and maintenance costs of the heating system together with a levelised cost of energy (LCOE) for the project’s 15 year duration.
Installed cost takes into account purchasing, installation and commissioning, and plays a significant part overall lifecycle analysis. Operation and maintenance costs include the cost of fuel and regular maintenance of the heating technology to ensure its efficiency, again for the project’s duration. The levelised cost of energy is a method used to quantify the cost of outputting one unit of energy by each system.
Our panel’s superior efficiency out-performed the traditional heating sources and storage heating technology with results demonstrating savings of up to 36% compared with oil or gas and 41% compared with electric storage heaters to produce the heat demand, over 15 years.
