Builder sliderBuilders Prefer SolaRay Infrared Heating Panels – Simple and Easy to Install

SolaRay radiant heating panels are quick and easy to install needing only a simple electrical installation which is why builders prefer SolaRay heating panels over central forced air heaters.  No need to schedule a separate installation of a centralized HVAC system. No waiting for sheet metal work to be completed. No back-framing needed and no mechanical inspection required.  Because of the simplicity of installation, it improves your on-time completion and likely will save you money as well with no schedule or cost overruns.

Low Initial Cost – Low Lifetime Cost

Not only are the panels easy to install, but they have a low initial investment. In fact, other than cheap wall or baseboard heaters, there is no heating system with an lower initial cost. And not only that, but Ducoterra’s SolaRay radiant heating panels have low operating costs and NO maintenance costs. These all add up to increased energy savings and a lower Total Cost of Ownership.

SolaRay Panels Can Work Hand-In-Hand With Ductless

Ducoterra’s SolaRay heating panels also can work hand-in-hand with other systems, like ductless heat pumps, to create a more cost effective heating system while maintaining a high standard of comfort and energy efficiency. As you can see from the tables above, SolaRay panels are one of the least costly systems to install, other than inefficient baseboard or wall heaters, and are nearly as efficient as geothermal or ductless systems.
