WHY HEAT BUILDINGS When IT IS THE PERSON WHO NEEDS IT ?
It is not really possible, has been the answer at all times, but now a changes is underway. Although it is intuitively correct, that it is less energy consuming to heat up a person instead of a room and a person nothing true and revolutionary new has been presented for many years. This despite that focus has been on energy savings, and the potential savings by this new concept will be huge and have a measurable positive effect on our common carbon footprint.
Buildings do fine even if they are cold. People do not, and need to stay warm and comfortable. However people have different demands as to what is the right comfort temperature for them. New surveys indicates that minimum 20 % of the people in a room always feel uncomfortable with the set temperatur.
A temperatur that most often is set to high in an attempt to reduce discontent. Beside the savings in energy the concept offers a differentiated indoor temperatur which improves the indoor climate and is more healthy for persons.
To make it possible to reduce the average indoor temperature to lowest possible and improve the individuelle persons comfort is the vision for IR Focus.
The new high power infrared heating elements can produces an instant heating giving a comfortable feeling as a warm, but invisible spotlight. Producing the heat using IR light bulbs and sending the energy through some design lenses makes it possible to focus and use the heat effectively.
IR Focus will is developing products to be sold under the name Varme (varme.com) and will be adding more features to the coming products. Further continue the development of a total LED heating system for houses. This together with interested partners both commercial and technical like UC Berkeley (reference til hjemmeside)
Ultimately the system will include a system where the heat will follow people around inside the building providing the comfort to each individually person according to their comfort level. Everything paid for by the net savings on the energy consumption
