How Electric Heating Systems Have Evolved. INTELLI HEAT n 1

The Old Days:
Remember the old fashioned electric storage heating systems that were too heavy to install upstairs, and completely impossible to control?

Well Intelli Heat noticed this over 15 years ago, and invented new electric radiators that had temperature controls and timers. Leading to the design and creation of their well-known Thermodynamic Fluid Wireless Collection of Italian style designer Radiators.

These days, comparing an old fashioned storage heating system with the latest Intelli Heat systems, is like comparing an old fashioned clay oven with a modern fan assisted top range oven. No more heating up old bricks that were invented to be made into brick walls.

Then came Controlling and Reducing Energy Use

Being able to control the temperature in each room completely separately, and vary the times that each separate radiator was on and off has slowly become the new ‘normal’ with homeowners benefitting from lower energy bills. This was due to more efficient and intelligent programmers and controls, culminating in Home Automation and a Wi-Fi Phone App to control the heating from anywhere.

This was now an affordable alternative to storage heaters, oil systems and LPG heated systems, in rural areas, offices, inner-city apartments and blocks of flats. Of course, all fully compliant with Building Regulations en 3066 including new Eco Design regulation (2016).

Then Interior Design became an important factor

Again the Intelli Heat range responded quickly, with ultra-thin Italian stylish design in a range of striking and exciting colours and futuristic looking vertical radiators, and standalone radiators that look like space-age lamps, allowing homeowners to free up much more wall space.

With no need to rip up all the floors to install them, they quickly became the system of choice for renovation projects and extensions, especially for Garage and loft conversions for the growing need for home-offices and Granny flats.

New Carbon Free Circular Economy Radiators

Now a new breed of Electric Radiators has been patented called Livingstone Creative Heating, which are made from recycled Marble powder, agglomerated with a patented fluid process, to create beautiful and artistic stone radiators.

Available in 24 different natural stone colours, these rads are totally carbon free, eco-friendly, and fully recyclable back into its previous form of Marble powder.

Every radiator has the same fully programmable thermostatic controls, along with automatic setting and the ability to use Home Automation. But now they look like pieces of art and sculpture on the wall, and nothing at all like an old fashioned radiator.
