  1. 2. KEY POINTS <ul><li>Comfort </li></ul><ul><li>Myth – that oil & gas is cheaper than electricity </li></ul><ul><li>The beauty of it all </li></ul>
  2. 3. 3 MAIN FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE RATE OF BODY HEAT LOSS <ul><li>Temperature (Air and Radiant) </li></ul><ul><li>Air movement </li></ul><ul><li>Relative humidity </li></ul>
  3. 4. BODY HEAT LOSS <ul><li>The human body heat loss is approximately 400 BTUH (117.3 watts). </li></ul><ul><li>This is broken down as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RADIATION 150 BTUH (44 WATTS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CONVECTION 150 BTUH (44 WATTS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EVAPORATION 100 BTUH (29.3 WATTS) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. Air is cooled and falls. Air is warmed and rises. CONVECTION This is the transfer of heat by means of a liquid or a gas, such as air. This is the principle of heat transfer used by such things as electric convection heaters.
  5. 6. EVAPORATION This is the process by which moisture is changed into vapor. As the moisture evaporates from a warm surface, heat is removed and the surface is cooled. An example of ‘ cooling ’ - stepping out of a hot shower.
  6. 7. RADIATION <ul><li>Warmth is radiated directly to cooler objects in the room – people, floors, walls, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Radiant rays travel in straight lines. </li></ul><ul><li>Warm objects radiate more than cold ones. </li></ul><ul><li>No drafts are created. </li></ul>
  7. 8. THE Therma·Ray SYSTEM <ul><li>Radiant heating and technology combined to provide a Smart solution. </li></ul><ul><li>Improves on previous radiant heating products. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides efficiency and comfort to heating. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Do you really only want warm floors? </li></ul><ul><li>SmartRooms = superior comfort + superb economics </li></ul><ul><li>Here’s why! </li></ul><ul><li>Consistent, comfortable heat throughout each room. </li></ul> SYSTEM cont’d
  9. 10. <ul><li>Consistent thermal comfort in every room – floor to ceiling. </li></ul><ul><li>Total thermal control. </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient and economical to operate. </li></ul><ul><li>A Smart choice. </li></ul>MORE ADVANTAGES
  10. 11. <ul><li>Our entire system is concealed. </li></ul><ul><li>Quiet, clean, and environmentally friendly. </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to install, with no maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient and economical to operate </li></ul>ADVANTAGES
  11. 12. ENERGY PRICING <ul><li>Market perceptions </li></ul><ul><li>Gas and oil pricing from 1995 to 2000 – an increase of 125% and 64%. </li></ul>Myth – that oil & gas is cheaper than electricity
  12. 13. Estimated Cost to Operate: $1187.00 Time of use rate: $848.35 2400 sq ft. 3 floors heated (includes bsmt)
  13. 14. Equipment Cost 2400 sq.ft $4,453 more expensive $10,400 Oil Hot Air Furnace $6,353 more expensive $12,300 Heat Pump $7,554 more expensive $13,500 Hydronic Oil $1,054 more expensive $7,000 Hot Water Baseboard The Smart Choice $5,946 SmartRooms (incl floor warming and earth storage)
  14. 15. Case Study <ul><li>Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada </li></ul><ul><li>Inside design temperature - 24ºC or 75ºF </li></ul><ul><li>House size – 1800 sq.ft heated area </li></ul><ul><li>Therma-Ray Ceiling Panels - $3633.47 (not installed) or $2.02/sq.ft </li></ul><ul><li>Cost to operate - $866.00 </li></ul>
