About Our Client

Installation is simple and easy - no boiler, plumbing or radiator pipework is required.
Ambion's system is particularly suitable for many of the property types that are unsuitable for heat pumps, creating a significant market opportunity.Ambion has a unique technology for the control system of infrared heat panels, which is patented.
