Wall Heater

The wall heater is an invisible and efficient heating mode similar to underfloor heating.

Principle of wall heater

The wall heater consists of heating pipes fed by a boiler or a heat pump . The heat of the water flowing through the wall is transmitted by convection and then diffused into the room by radiation.

The pipes can be installed in several ways:

  • fixed to mounting rails, which are themselves fixed on the wall
  • built during the construction of the wall in blister bricks
  • incorporated into panels attached to the wall

Wall heating can therefore be integrated into either construction or renovation. The wall will be coated as a conventional wall then covered with wallpaper, tiling, etc.

Advantages: invisible and economic heating

The obvious advantage of a wall heater is its absolute discretion: more than with wall mounted radiators, your heating is invisible.

In addition, the radiant heat is particularly comfortable:

  • even heat throughout the room
  • no air circulation so no traffic dust, ideal for allergy sufferers

In addition, the radiant heating of a wall heater saves money. You require less heating for comfort. Thus, a heating temperature of 18°C will feel like comparable heat by convection set at 20-21°C.

Finally, coupled with a heat pump, wall heating can also provide cooling for your home.

Disadvantages of wall heater

The wall heater takes longer to heat but gradually accumulates heat and releases it slowly and over a longer time.

However, you should not place big furniture against the wall because it may block the radiation.

Also take care when installing shelves or picture frames; do not drill into the heating pipes. Remember to keep the installation plan!
