Heat pumps, solar energy systems and condensing boilers require much larger radiators because they operate best with a much lower water temperature.
Heat pumps reach their optimal effi ciency at a water temperature of only 95°f. This is not a problem for DBE convectors.
The unique combination of the copper-aluminum heat exchanger – standard in every Low-H2O unit – and the powerful DBE technology, that has been specially developed for these very low water temperatures, gives up to 3 times more heat output than a conventional radiator with the same dimensions.
Due to their high mass, traditional radiators and underfloor heating consume a lot of energy just to heat up themselves. Only when heated up sufficiently, they begin to emit heat. Jaga Low-H2O fin tube units with DBE, limit this warm-up time to an absolute minimum. The start-up time is much shorter, making heat delivery faster and more efficient. This means that the night-time set back periods can be extended, saving money and energy.
What happens when: we’ve reached the desired room temp and there is sudden solar gain or electrical appliences heat up the room? Traditional radiators will overheat the room, wasting energy. A DBE will react much faster, and automatically balance the heat output when necessary. This means that the comfort temperature is better controlled.
Better temperature control and shorter operating periods result in significant energy savings*, making your heating system much more efficient. With DBE, you can easily switch to any new, energy effecient low water temperature systems. Prepare for the future!
