Xefro, the UK-based company that is developing a graphene-based heating system, has employed the services of European Circuits Limited (ECL) to design and manufacture the electronics for its innovative heating system. Test systems are currently under trial, and Xefro expects this to be the world’s first commercial heating system using graphene.

Graphene has been selected for the heating element because of its potential for extremely efficient energy transfer, and so the company expects reduced energy costs of up to 70%. The heating system will consist of a Central Heating Controller that will communicate via RF signals to a Hot Water Controller and to the various zones, each zone consisting of a radiator or at least one heating element with AC Power Controller and separate temperature sensors. The user interface for the entire system will be via a mobile app.

All of the electronics for the system have been designed and produced entirely at ECL’s Glasgow-based facility.

This claim into reducing your heating costs is bullshit ask Xefro why they have recently been investigated by the fire service and trading standards for heaters setting on fire almost causing house fires . This company who sell their product through COMPLETE ENERGY EUROPE are ripping people off for thousands . they are sending their sales people after cold calls into peoples homes telling them how much they will save then they are taking huge deposits off people to the tune of £3000 to £6000 and then disappearing with the money and not returning to fit the product go on aspokesmansaid.com and have a look . SAVE YOUR MONEY KEEP AWAY FROM THIS SCAM YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

When will the Graphene Industry wake up to the fact that there are many fraudulent industry. We (Xefro Club see Fbook) were promised a state of the art Graphene heating and water system that was going to save us thousands, we were defrauded/scammed out of thousands of pounds, the company above does not communicate once it as your money, calls go to answer phone, registered letters are ignored, CCJs are ignored, the Graphene industry should be doing more to 'police' these companies..
