Self-Regulating Radiant Heating System’s Innovation Demonstrated
Due to the self-regulating properties of the STEP system, the molecular structure of the heating elements only allow the consumption of energy that is needed to maintain the heat at a given location. Every square inch of the heating element acts as a thermostat and increases resistance to restrict flow of energy once the element reaches a designated temperature.
In addition, the STEP elements operate on direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). The DC option can be connected to renewable energy sources such as solar energy for added benefit. Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) is working hard to expand facilities that are truly equipped for the future of clean, renewable energy sources.
