Energy Carbon wins infrared contract
South Coast start-up Energy Carbon has won the UK contract to supply Far-Infrared from Germany.
Developed by experts from the University of Stuttgart, working alongside one of Germany’s largest industrial corporations renowned for high-tech solutions, Far-Infrared is a robust, long-lasting and ultra-thin fleece that can be easily plastered into a ceiling or placed behind plasterboard to provide homes with low-cost infra-red heating, which starts to work just seconds after being switched on.
Energy Carbon founder and Director Nick Gander explained: “For years, we have been hugely passionate about the potential for infra-red and our German partners have designed Far-Infrared, thanks to years of intensive research and development, that is the answer to energy efficient heating solutions for homes both now and in the future.
“Heating accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than any other source – 37% of the UK’s total – and if every heating system in the country was replaced with infra-red, that figure would be dramatically reduced.”
The company is also looking to serve both housebuilders and the retrofit market by setting up a distribution network across the UK, and it has welcomed its first distributor on board – West Midlands-based Jigsaw Heating Solutions.
Jigsaw Heating Solutions MD Matthew Billington commented: “We’ve watched the market for infra-red grow in recent years as housebuilders and the public have started to wake up to its huge benefits. When we saw the ingenious design and outstanding quality of what Energy Carbon provide, we had to add it to our range.”
