Who are we?
Corporate Profile
• Prestyl USA is a subsidiary of AGEAH
(Advanced Green Energy Alliance Holding)
• Prestyl USA was incorporated as one of
AGEAH’s “next generation” heating
technology divisions to introduce and
market a new generation of healthy,
energy-saving heating products
Corporate Profile
• AGEAH acquires new energy and life-sustaining
technology IPs (Intellectual Properties) and
commercializes these.
• Besides the IP it purchases, the company has
obtained exclusive licenses for unique patented
new energy-saving products manufactured by
its Green Alliance partners
AGEAH’s portfolio consists of:
• Patented new windmill designs
• Magnetic loss recovery technology
(optimizing existing magnetic light fixtures and motors)
• Cold storage and food preparation LED lighting
fixtures
• Low-profile vandal-proof LED lighting fixtures
• Highly efficient sewage to grey water conversion
• Pico and Micro cell energy generation storage and
demand shifting solutions
• New solar technologies
• Proprietary new heating technologies
• Once products are “market ready” AGEAH
establishes one or more product-specific
divisions and propagates these around the
world primarily through local manufacturing
facilities.
Prestyl USA, LLC was founded to
propagate healthy
eco-responsible heating
solutions
The history of heating
Heating technology has evolved
from caveman’s simple fires
To the wood or coal burning
stoves of the 18th century
The history of heating
In modern homes we
mostly see forced air
systems, …..
“Radiators”, which primarily
operate as convection units, …..
The history of heating
…… difficult to repair “in-floor radiant” or
“Hydronic” Systems, and more recently,
expensive Geo-thermal systems. The latter
are plagued by severe climate-related
limitations.
The history of heating
When heating systems fail to perform and
people get cold they resort to using dangerous
and highly inefficient supplemental heating
units
The history of heating
To fully understand Prestyl’s comfortable and
energy-saving heating solutions we have to go
back to basics…….
Prestyl’s solution…?
•
•
•
•
•
•
Eliminate duct or piping losses
Eliminate convection losses
Eliminate dust and pollen circulation
Eliminate “hot head, cold feet”
syndrome
Quickly recover comfort after doors
have been opened and warm room air
has escaped
Save energy by implementing
efficient and healthy “point of use”
heating
As with lighting products, Prestyl’s technology can be mounted
on walls, on ceilings, in suspended ceilings, or hung from chains
Reliability and Quality
With sixteen years of development and
OEM deployment in harsh operating
environments, it is safe to say that
Prestyl’s thin-film technology, with a life
expectancy of possibly 50 years or
more, is among the world’s most
dependable products available.
How does infrared work?
A small portion of the sun’s spectrum
is healthy infrared heat. After the sun
goes down, objects that were exposed
to the sun’s infrared warmth, especially stone and
concrete, will continue to emit the infrared heat
that was absorbed and stored during the sun’s
exposure for many hours.
How do we do it?
Just as it is with the sun, Prestyl
heats the objects and people in a
space, not the air.
Prestyl’s soothing far-infrared waves
heat the floor, walls, furniture, etc.
Heat energy can be stored at night (when the rates
are low) and “returned” during the day providing
for energy savings of up to 50% or more.

Next… Product details and technical info…
Product details
• Prestyl offers its far-infrared heating panels
as printed artworks (both standard and
custom prints) as well as ceilingmountable white, black or custom
colored architectural units
• The standard is 120 or 240 volt plug-in, but the 208,
240, and 277 volt units may be ordered with flexible
aluminum conduit if required by code, e.g. plenum drop
ceilings spaces….
Product details
• Standard dimensions are
2’ x 2 ‘ and 2’ x 4’ (both are
designed so that these
would also fit into standard
suspended ceiling grids found
in North America).
• A larger 42” x 42” unit is also available
• All can be hung via chain or ceiling/wall mounted.
Typical Installation
Typical thermostat
(single units)
• Single panels may be wall or ceiling
mounted and plugged-in when
heating is needed
• Alternately, a switched outlet or ….
(if temperature control is required), a
line-voltage thermostat may be used
• Line-voltage thermostats can be
separate plug-in units or these can
be located in a wall-switch box .
(please contact your dealer or electrician for details)
One-person “on-ceiling” Installation
With the optional
“S”- hooks, ceiling
(surface-mount)
installations require
just one person;
this represents a
50% panel
installation labor
cost reduction.
Rather than using a
helper, the “S”-hooks
suspend the panel while
the electrical connection
is made.
To release the hooks lift
and shake the panel until
these fall to the floor.
“On-ceiling” Installation
1.
2.
3.
Insert the flat (longer)
lip of the bracket first
Lift the panel towards
the ceiling and slide it
to the left to engage
the right-hand side of
the bracket
Lower the panel so it
rest son the bracket.
Push the panel slightly
to the right and close
the latches (use a flatblade screwdriver or
other suitable tool if
needed).
Latch
Typical Installation (suspended ceiling)
Depending on local codes,
panels in a multi - panel
system may be plugged into
thermostatically-controlled
outlets or hardwired.
Note:
Some local codes require optional flex conduit. If this is
the case, panels must be ordered with the “flexconduit option” , consultation required…

This is the “calculated” sizing that is a “rule of thumb” to prevent under sizing
There has been many cases where more than satisfactory resulted have occurred
using less panels for higher square footage….R Value and losses must always be
considered!
Certifications
All panels are: ETL listed and approved for residential and commercial
applications.
Conforms to UL STD 1278;
Certified to CSA STD C22.2 No. 46
Export panels comply with most international certifications, including
GS(Geprufte Sicherheit-”Tested Safety” Germany /EU), KEMA(Global “Energy
& Sustainability testing), NF(Norma Francais FR/EU/international standards
“meets safety and quality”), CE(Conformité Européenne- “Certified Quality”),
GOSTR(Gossandart Russian “Safety & Mandatory Certificate).
System Sizing & Examples
• Maximum “Range” or Ceiling-height: <16’, 9’=(best,*)
• Typical installed power required per sq.ft : 3.5W – 5.5W
Note:
*Taking in all variables to calculate the proper coverage is crucial. Never an
issue for oversizing, under-sizing looses the effectiveness of the system.
We have a “sizing calculator” that defines the relationship between installed
power, ceiling height, “loss factors” (such as doors/windows/structure), and
climate. When required, although a working knowledge become very easy.
Examples:
In a well-insulated home with and 8’ ceiling in Canada, the installed power is
only 3.71 watts per square foot; in very cold climates it could be up to 5.5
watts per square foot. Including garages now!
Shops with O/H cranes would mount 45 deg off perimeter wall and working
areas off the path of the ‘crane zone’. etc
Accessories & requirements
• Relays: Any suitable relay or contactor will work, to
minimize switching noise Prestyl recommends hybrid or
electronic relays.
• Power supplies: For increased safety Prestyl
recommends low-voltage control systems consisting
of an suitable power supply, thermostats, Low-voltage
controlled (hybrid/electronic) relays and control wiring.
Caution: Proper sizing of the system must always be planned out and provide a single line
to the client for their electrical inspectors.
Accessories & requirements
(continued)
• Thermostats: Prestyl requires a thermostat with a
“dry loop closure” on heat call.
• The thermostat should be programmed for as few
“cycles per hour” as possible – use the “radiant heat”
setting if provided (IR is a slow & steady technology,
the fewer cycles the higher system efficiency)
• Prestyl recommends a “set-back” thermostat. Unlike
with forced air heating, the thermostat should be set
to activate at night to store the heat in the mass, and
set lower during the day to save energy.
Accessories & requirements
(continued)
• Relays per thermostat: When Prestyl-recommended
hybrid or electronic relays are used, these only draw
milliamps to activate. Most thermostats can support
10 or more hybrid or electronic relays
(Please review the specifications of the thermostats and relays selected.)
• Optional DIN-rails/Cabinets: Nowadays, many systems
are based on DIN rail standards. Most of Prestyl’s
recommended components are available as DIN-rail
mountable units that fit in optional DIN cabinets
Accessories & requirements
(continued)
Flex conduit option:
Where code requires, Prestyl offers a flex
conduit option for its in-ceiling systems.

Availability of Accessories
• Prestyl USA manufactures and distributes proprietary
Prestyl heating products. It does not carry or
distribute third-party accessories.
• A “recommended list” of third-party accessories is in
the works. Otherwise, that’s decided by either the
end-user, or the installer. HIO offers a fee-based cost+
“purchasing service” to help customer acquire thirdparty accessories if extensive engineering is required
for their system.
•
This is a courtesy service only; Prestyl does not warranty (or
assume any liabilities for) third-party products.
Building requirements
Like any other technology, Far-infrared (regardless of
manufacturer) is limited by the laws of nature/physics
• A building must be reasonably weather-tight and
preferably insulated
• The most important consideration is the floor;
The floor must be well insulated, especially around
the perimeter
• If the concrete is wet, the area of the building with
the wet floor will not warm up until the moisture has
evaporated.
• If a building “stands in water” infrared will not work!
Building requirements (continued)
• If an office shared a slab floor with an unheated
warehouse, conduction to the unheated space will
require more panels than calculated.
(an insulated sub-floor in the office will solve this problem.)
• Buildings with old steel or aluminum single pane
windows conduct cold into the building and will need
to be fitted with storm windows or will require more
panels than calculated
• Never install fewer panels than calculated. More is
better, fewer panels means higher operating costs and
cold people!
