Why Choose Infrared Heaters?

When designing homes or offices, consider infrared heaters.

Infrared heaters are simple, efficient, and stylish.

Unlike traditional forms of heating, infrared heaters work via radiation, not convection. Because of this, heat is not lost from draughts and leaks through the thermal envelope of a building. Once a space is heated with infrared heaters, furniture, walls and floors will release the heat slowly back into the room over time.

Advantages of far infrared heaters:

Infrared heaters require no pipework
Panels can simply be hung on walls and plugged into the mains – but we recommend they are hardwired in by an electrician. Thermostatic controls can be installed at the same time.

Infrared heaters are available in a huge range of finishes
Our infrared heating panels can fit in any home: white, glass, mirrored, painted or disguised as a photo canvas.

Infrared heaters are space saving
The infrared heating panels sit almost flat on the wall and take up very little space, especially compared to the old storage heaters – they really are a sleek, modern alternative.

Infrared heating operates in complete silence
The infrared heating panels don’t use fans so there are no noisy moving parts.

Infrared heating is great for allergy sufferers
Infrared heating ensures dusty/pollen-laden air is not circulated around your home / office.

Infrared heating helps prevent damp
The infrared emitted from the infrared heaters warms up walls, helping to keep them dry.

Infrared heating is 100% safe
Clearly, the word ‘radiation’ rings alarm bells for some people, but infrared radiation is 100% safe. Our own bodies emit it – this is how search and rescue helicopters find lost people at night.

Infrared heating is cheap to run
Infrared heaters heat solid objects rather than the air, so you are in effect heating surface area as opposed to volume. The result is that you can generate the same amount of heat with considerably less energy – this saves homeowners money on their bills – infrared heating really is the no.1 form of efficient electrical heating!

Where can infrared heaters be installed in the property?

Infrared heaters can be installed in your living room, bathrooms, kitchen, conservatory and even in your patio area. We have a comprehensive product range to satisfy different customer requirements. Below, we quickly summarise typical property areas and some of the infrared heating solutions we would recommend:

Infrared heating in living rooms and bedrooms

Here we would typically recommend any of the full infrared heating panel range, from the cost-effective carbon fibre infrared solutions (with a white matt finish), right to the premium glass or printed picture panels. Whichever infrared heating panel you choose, they should all be able to be connected with programmers and thermostats so as to give you full thermostatic control of those zones. The infrared heaters can either be installed on the walls or ceilings.

Infrared heating in bathrooms

Infrared heaters are IP-rated and have been tested for use in toilets, bathrooms and wet rooms. The panel heaters are perfect as they are sleek in design and space-conscious, thereby helping you maximise the use of those rooms. It’s always best to get in touch with our team should you be needing the infrared panels in these rooms, as we can certainly help with the sizing and requirements.

Infrared heating in conservatories and patio areas

The rate of heat loss can be great in poorly insulated rooms such as conservatories or highly ventilated places like patio areas. Some of our indoor/outdoor bar heaters or the NEW middle-wave solutions are designed to help you feel more comfortable in using these spaces. If you are thinking about having some infrared heaters installed in these areas of the property, do get in touch as we can help with the calculations and the specification needed to make you feel you are getting a worthwhile solution for your requirements.

Infrared heating for your home office

Depending on the size of the heating area, the infrared heating solutions are fantastic at focusing on the area of your office that needs the most heat. Therefore, if you are in your home you can literally prioritise one room or a section of the room where you need it while keeping the rest of the house heating turned off, stopping any wasted heating during the day. While the infrared heating panels or bar heaters can be used, we also carry the highly practical curved panels, which can help keep you nice and comfortable at your desk.

Infrared heating in the work place

Infrared heaters are suitable for office installations. They can be installed in the ceilings or in a variety of applications depending on the work layout or needs. Our range of infrared heating panels is perfect for the office environment, whereas our selection of the bar heaters or even the specialist ceiling suspended heaters can be used in a workshop or an open-plan office with high ceilings.
