When I first heard about the new revolutionary heated skirting board system I was intrigued to find out more. Instantly you can picture a home that does not need radiators the image you conjure up is one that is aesthetically pleasing and then just to imagine the space saving capabilities of the product and you become even more impressed.
A proven heating system
Thermoskirt is a proven heating system that offers a simple, innovative yet modern alternative to central heating and underfloor heating, as the underfloor heating system has disadvantages as it does not easily retrofit as you need to disturb the floor area, also wood flooring can act as an insulator so it takes a while to heat the room thoroughly.
Whereas Thermoskirt can heat a room as quickly as radiators and there is no heat loss through the flooring.
What is Thermoskirt?
Thermoskirt is a aluminium skirting that comes in up to ten metres lengths the boards are ten times more effective at radiating heat than steel, behind the skirting boards are two metal pipes where the hot water flows to heat the boards. The beauty is the old pipework can be retrofit just like a radiator. It will retrofit to all sorts of systems including gas, oil, bio, pellet boilers which is brilliant news for homeowners who have taken advantage of eco systems. Thermo skirt comes in a large range of profiles and colours to suit your needs.
The things that we need clarify on are definitely the price, the installation and the heat efficiency of the product.
Price wise this is a real competitor for underfloor heating as the prices are £25 to £30 per sq metre and obviously the surface area for the skirting boards are less.
This product is energy efficient and it uses less energy but yet has the proven system provides real heat. It has a unique self regulating heating element uses less energy as the room heats up and will not overheat even if covered by insulating materials.
This product offers great aesthetic appeal and it offers modern space saving capabilities than can save space in kitchens and other areas that are need space saving advantages. Commercial building have really taken to this product such as hospitals, nursing homes and modern offices. Thermoskirt offers an energy efficient alternative to traditional heating or underfloor heating with a lot less disruption and a real contender on price when compared to underfloor heating.
