- User can influence thermal comfort individually defined for every householder, which is safe to health in the long-term time frame.
- User have the impact on the selection and change of heating strategy depending on the lifestyle, work time and also has a full opportunity to the economic utilization of emerging heat gains. REGULUS–system heaters are the optimal solution for smart homes.
The range of permissible operating temperature, which maintains the body’s thermal balance is called the zone of vasomotor control. What is this concept all about?
Man with its heat overproduction of vital organs, must be cooled, in order to maintain their temperature suitable for optimal operation of all enzyme systems. The body’s thermoregulatory mechanisms are aimed at maintaining the right temperature to of the blood returning to the organs. The blood returning to the organ can be neither too cold nor too warm. Under special protection is our headquarters, or the brain. The return temperature of blood to the brain is regulated by the body (protected) with an accuracy of 0,1°C! To accomplish this the body uses the arsenal of mechanisms. The simplest of these is the regulation of blood flow in the arteries and veins of the lower limbs. If the temperature in this area is too high due heat source installed in the area or too warm clothes are being worn, your body has to use another mechanisms to remove the excess heat from the internal organs. Moving a large amount of blood into the peripheral circulation, including the skin and the venous system, is accompanied by a rapid increase of vascular resist. Overcoming it will require an increase in diastolic blood pressure, increased heart rate and increased cardiac output. Also, acceleration and deepening of the breath must occur. Moving large amounts of blood on the circuit, means less blood in the internal organs and deterioration of their metabolism… Another rescue mechanism the body is sweating. Body so heavily involved in the action of supporting the cooling process of body organs is no longer relaxed. Central heating must serve the comfortable cooling of your body without the involvement of the exceptional mechanisms.
Air temperature range in which the person feels comfortable, is very diverse. It depends on personal preference, clothing, nutrition, season, age, gender. Temperatures ensuring the well-being tend to be higher for women and older people then for men and younger people. One can prefer warmth, while another neutral temperature and another slight coolness. Differently at the different time of the day. They also vary depending on the health status, level of fatigue, level of arousal, etc. When at the winter we come back home, cold, we would have liked to have warmer interior than usual, as we want to get warm. After some time, we prefer to have a bit cooler.
The differences may not be significant – in the range of one, two degrees, but in any case, all-season isotherm certainly is not the top of thermal comfort already.
Is it possible to affect the temperature in such an extent?
With the underfloor heating it is not, but at with REGULUS-system heaters – absolutely…
