    Ceiling mounted radiant heating panels will heat the house using long wave infrared . Only 5 amps per panel.

    Panels are one inch thick and vary from 2′ x 4′ to 2′ x6′
    120 or 240v . Low wattage panels use very little energy and give off a lot of heat.
    No floor space used, no maintenance required.
