Advanced Heating Technologies Netherlands (AHT) supplies low temperature infrared heating mats of only 2 mm thick. The mats can be placed invisibly under any type of floor finish or loose carpet and ensure an even heat transfer.
Director Ron van Wijk of AHT: “The infrared radiation reacts quickly, provides a higher thermal comfort than air heating and saves considerably on energy bills, up to 15% to 40% compared to traditional systems”. This type of main heating system is easy to operate and program with a thermostat or with your smart phone or tablet. It is also possible to separately heat individual parts in the same room.
Ron explains the benefits for Tiny House residents: “Because the system does not take up any space, it is ideally suited for Tiny Houses. By using solar panels or purchasing green electricity, the system even is CO2-neutral. Since the system has a modular structure and, moreover, it requires very little material, it also fits perfectly within the philosophy of the circular economy. The mats are installed without adhesives. So you can easily reuse it.”
GFSC, AHT’s in-house installer, helps you with a professional preparation of the underfloor heating system. To prepare for installation they need to receive general information about the project, a floor plan and photos of the Tiny House (or a specific room within it) that needs to be heated. “On this basis, they draw up an installation plan, which includes the configuration of the infrared mats and the associated capacities. They also calculate how much power the system consumes and what this means for the meter box. You will also receive advice about the floor structure, subfloor insulation and floor finishing and they will tell you which facilities are required in the home to be able to install the system smoothly.”
Demand is growing and Tiny House residents have also found their way to AHT: “More than 10 years ago we equipped the first Tiny House with this technology and dozens have been done since then. GFSC has just provided 5 Tiny Houses in Almere with AHT infrared mats. They are rental houses for single mothers.”
AHT’s infrared heating technology is based on a patented amorphous metal alloy, also known as metal glass. The amorphous metal ribbons are manufactured in the USA and then processed in the AHT factory in Brasov (Romania) into plug-and-play infrared mats, that are equipped with watertight electrical connections. The high-quality mats are periodically tested by independent test institutes. AHT has all the necessary certificates to be able to use the system worldwide, now in more than 50 countries.
