LITEHEAT systems provide an even, full-face heating process and offer a high infrared emission. Infrared (IR) radiation transfers heat to a body or an object without the need of direct contact between the heat source and the object. Other than convection heat (state oft he art air vents), infrared radiation warms the human body directly, just like the warm-up process given by the sun.
Herefore, heat is not only felt when touching the heated surface, but the passenger also experiences pleasant and homogeneous radiation heat.
If mainly contact heat is desired, LITEHEAT systems can be manufactured in a way that only contact heat is generated.
Heating systems for cars
The “Liteheat” heating technology developed by Villinger is the game changer in heating systems for cars. By the high energy efficiency of the “Liteheat” system, where electrical energy is directly converted into heat energy, the energy to be expended can be significantly reduced while comfort is increased and system weight is reduced.

Improved Cabin Comfort
Villinger GmbH and Lufthansa Technik AG are pleased to announce that a supplemental type certificate (STC) according to CS25 for the aircraft floor heating system "HeatNow" which has been approved for virtually all current large passenger aircraft.
HeatNow is an underfloor heating system powered by an efficient and ultra-thin LITEHEAT heating layer which is retrofittable, easy to install which can be integrated virtually anywhere in the aircraft to improve comfort in critical areas.
And finally, flight attendants - who have to sit on the JumpSeat near an often-draughty entrance door during take-off and landing - no longer have to freeze or run the risk of catching a cold, just like passengers sitting near an emergency exit. But also, in general, an aircraft cabin is a big pipe, which is known to be difficult to reach anywhere in comfort without creating unpleasant drafts. But with the "Heat Now" system you can now create a comfort like at home - and even beautifully equipped business jets finally get the feel-good climate they deserve.
