Assisted Living Facility Radiant Heating
As we age, our ability to retain body heat declines, often rapidly. That’s why we see the elderly wearing coats and sweaters while younger people are quite comfortable.
Fast forward to life in an assisted living facility. Residents complain often that they are too cold, so the staff continually adjusts the thermostat to blow more hot air. Unfortunately, blowing air provides little relief as our elderly bodies simply can’t retain the heat and must go searching for more and more layers of clothing and blankets.
Radiant heat directs heat to cold objects rather than heating the air, providing a warm, comfortable environment for the elderly. No blowing hot air, no sweaters, no coats, no blankets, just warmth, comfort and energy savings, not to mention the end of temperature complaints!
We offer several different solutions for assisted living facilities:
- Earth Thermal Storage: Our under slab heating system is installed in soil or sand under a concrete slab building foundation. The result is that the ground underneath becomes an efficient, large mass of stored thermal energy. Perfect for new Assisted Living Facility construction.
- Supplemental Electric Radiant Heating: Our Architectural Series Metal Heaters can be added to any heating system to provide warmth and comfort in those difficult areas by the outside doors as well as offices inside your Assisted Living Facility where just a little more warmth and comfort is essential. Perfect for both new construction and renovation to address problem areas.
- Electric Radiant Ceiling Heating Systems: Designed to provide maximum comfort at the absolute lowest cost, there is no wasted heat using SmartRooms Radiant Ceiling Heat System. Installation is simple: electric gypsum panels fit between the ceiling joists above the finished ceiling. A gentle curtain of warmth is then spread evenly throughout the room, now free from drafts and dust. Perfect for both new construction and renovation to address problem areas.
