Our primary technology is the unique iHelios Far Infrared heating film which is a significant breakthrough in environmentally friendly space heating technology and has a UK Declaration of Conformity (UKCA) for health, safety, and environmental protection, as well as being 100% recyclable.
This remarkable, wafer-thin heating film can be discreetly located within suspended or exposed ceilings, under floors or in custom-made wall panels, making is completely invisible to the eye.
Its simplicity and smart control capabilities offers numerous benefits to domestic customers and a wide range of commercial sectors including, property developers, builders, social and private landlords, architects, SAP assessors, M&E consultants, and interior designers as it can be installed across a wide range of property types.
Though there are other manufacturers of Infrared heating films, what makes the iHelios system entirely unique is its patented Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) casing, its Class 2 insualtion and IPX1 water protection rating.
Uniquely, our complete heating system (not just the heating film) has passed IEC/EN 60335-2-96 International and European Test Standards, making it the safest in the market.
PTC technology has been used by Electrical and Mechanical Engineers for many years as they recognize its ability to make heating systems more reliable, safer, and cost-effective than traditional resistance wire electric heaters.
Consider PTC heating systems compared to resistant heaters as LED light bulbs are to incandescent bulbs; they have significantly lower energy costs and a longer life.
Typically, heating elements use a resistance wire to generate heat. PTC heating elements are made from tiny ceramic stones which have a unique characteristic as semiconductors with properties that can be precisely determined during their design and manufacture. PTC devises do not burn oxygen making them safer and more energy efficient. They cannot overheat and are self-limiting as when their temperature, and consequently the resistance increases, the current flow through the devise decreases, resulting in the maximum operating temperature for the iHelios system set to a safe 54 degrees centigrade.
What makes the iHelios heating system even more remarkable is that produces instant, healthy, infrared radiant heat, so unlike convector heating, such as radiators, it doesn’t warm the air but the objects in the room.
It’s the same feeling you get on a cold day when the sun is shining. That warm, radiant feeling, though with iHelios you have complete control over each room.
It can take hours for a traditional central heating system to warm a house as it’s warming the air, and we all know, warm air rises, so the warmest part of the room is always the ceiling, which is not at all efficient.
That’s not the case with iHelios heating as within minutes you will start to feel its warmth. It’s truly magical, as other than thermostats, there is no evidence of a heating system at all. It’s totally invisible. No ugly radiators that restrict your living space so you a left with a totally blank canvas so you can arrange your rooms as you wish.
The iHelios heating system is quick and easy to install, though it must be installed by a full qualified electrician who has completed their training at the iHelios Training Academy.
The complete system consists of only 4 components so is simplicity itself. Once installed, there are no moving parts so unlike a boiler or air source heat pump it is completely silent and requires no servicing throughout its lifetime.
It comes to you with a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty though the expected life span of the system is at least 30 years.
Whether a new domestic or commercial build, a refurbishment or retrofit project, the iHelios system is perfectly sized and designed to meet the exact heating requirements of your project.
The iHelios heating system can be concealed within ceilings or underfloor or made to size in bespoke ceiling or wall panels.
Most offices have suspended ceilings and iHelios film is so easy to install in those situations.
With iHelios there are no unsightly radiators or vents so you can utilise all of the available space providing you with a clear, blank canvas.
Based a plan layout of your property or project, our in-house design team will provide you with a comprehensive design proposal and costings.
Unlike all other heating systems, the entire iHelios system consists of 4 non-moving components and it requires no maintenance whatsoever.
It’s widely acknowledged that FAR Infrared Heat is a safe and healthy form of heating. As it warms the objects in a room, not the air, it reduces condensation which is the underlaying cause of damp and black mould.
From 2025, all heating systems that emit harmful greenhouse gasses are being phased out. By installing Solar PV or a micro-wind turbine you could enjoy a free heat and hot water all year around.
The iHelios heating film consists of only 5 components, all of which are easily recycled. Though it has a 20-year warranty, it will operate without servicing or the need for any spare parts for at least 40-years and emits no harmful greenhouse gases.
