3 IMPORTANT POINTS
1. CHOOSE THE POWER ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS
DEGXEL heaters are very low powers (starting from 200W). For small surfaces 50 Watts can represent 25% of missing power. Do not undersize!
How to calculate the appropriate power?
|Geographical location (*)||Country / Climatic zone / County||Zone 1* : start with 55w/m2
Zone 2* : start with 60w/m2
Zone 3* : start with 65w/m2
+ 10% for every 500 meters of altitude starting from 1000 meters
|The insulation level of the dwelling (**)||With regard to thermal regulation||
|The exposure of the room||Orientation with respect to the sun||Room exposure (+10 % of power for a room with a northern exposure)|
|The number of cold walls||Number of walls in contact with the outside||The number of cold walls (in contact with the outside = not heated). + 10% if 3 cold walls. Take into account which floor it is in the case of apartments.|
|The type of the room||Bathroom, bedroom, living room, office||The target temperature desired by the customer may vary. Standard T = 20°C. Add + 7% per additional degree.|
2. POSITION THE HEATER in a SUITABLE LOCATION
The radiation must be able to reach all the areas of the room!
Why is the location more important than for conventional heaters?
