Infrared heating - the future of energy efficient electric heating.

Commercial and domestic properties are increasingly switching from older fossil fuel-dependent heating systems, to infrared heating. If you have convection, storage, or underfloor heating, or even patio heaters, then infrared heating could help you reduce your heating bills.

Infrared heating is the future of energy efficient electric heating. It is a sustainable, fully controllable and stylish way to heat your home or business.

  • Energy Efficient - Infrared heating is more energy efficient, greener and smarter than traditional heaters.
  • Flexible - Infrared heating is NOT an all-or-nothing system. You can choose to install a single panel or replace your entire system.
  • Cost Effective - It helps you save money and pays for itself very quickly.
  • Easy Install - Infrared heating is fast and easy to set-up with minimal fuss.


Jigsaw’s infrared heaters are more energy-efficient and more eco friendly than traditional heaters. They require no water, no gas and no maintenance.

Infrared heating works by converting electricity into radiant heat. It wastes no energy and saves you money.

Main Benefits of Infrared Heating

Health Benefits - Learn about the health benefits of heating your room with Infrared Heating.


Design - Choosing Infrared heating as your heating of choice gives you freedom to install one panel, or an entire system. You can choose from a plethora of materials, sizes and aesthetic designs.


Comfort - Infrared heating is designed for quick and even heating. Comfort to heat your room how you want it.


Easy to Use - At Gaia, we work with Smart Heating Control Systems that are low maintenance and easy to use.

How Does Infrared Heating Work?

The heater panels transfer heat directly from the heater to the object without heating the air in between. Heat passes by radiant heat waves until an object (like you) absorbs that heat.


The way infrared heating works is essentially the same as the natural heating effects of the sun. As it does not heat the surrounding air, infrared heating allows a quicker, more comfortable and more cost-effective method of heating, compared to more traditional methods.


The feeling of heat from an infrared heater is similar to the feeling of stepping into sunshine.

Infrared Heating and Smart Homes

Adding Genius Hub’s smart heating controls to your infrared heater gives you even more control over your energy costs. Each heater is controlled individually with its own smart thermostat, allowing you full control over how you heat your individual rooms.
Download the app to your devices and control each room independently from anywhere in the world. Enjoy the many user-friendly, smart features of the latest energy-saving technology.

  • Set rooms to different temperatures
  • As required, at the touch of a button
  • Use the smart occupancy detection feature to set a room to heat when someone enters
  • Set a heating schedule
  • Boost a room
  • Allow manual thermostat control

Infrared Heating for your Business

More and more businesses and commercial properties are switching their old, fossil fuel-dependent heating systems for the cheaper and cleaner option of infrared heating. Several factors make it a viable alternative heating system for your business:


  • Reduced maintenance costs.
  • Reduced energy costs
  • More efficient and carbon neutral.
  • Ease of installation.
  • Infrared panels can fit into a suspended ceiling grid, replacing an existing ceiling tile, making it unobtrusive and space-saving.
  • Further control of costs is made possible with the addition of smart thermostats and smart heating controls.
  • Can be incorporated with green energy production such as solar panels.
  • Allows cost-reducing control of individual heating zones within a property, as needed.

Infrared Heating is Cost Effective

Unlike traditional convection heating which causes significant energy wastage and additional running costs, infrared converts all electricity into heat, resulting in a more cost effective system.

Jigsaw’s energy-efficient infrared heaters are proven to be at least 30% more efficient than convection heating. This means that you can enjoy a consistent, comfortable warmth throughout your home or business in a more cost-effective way.

Further savings can be gained by adding smart heating controls and/or by incorporating green energy production such as solar panels. Infrared heating also reduces heating costs considerably, because it creates the benefit of zoned heating.

Infrared heating gives you control to only heat up the areas in your home or business that you wish to be heated. You will no longer need to preheat a room, because infrared heat works instantly.

Traditional convection heating causes energy wastage and additional running costs, infrared converts all electricity into heat.

Infrared Heating Other Benefits

Traditional convection heaters, such as standard oil / gas 'wet' radiators  use convection currents to heat and circulate air to heat a room. Infrared heaters work in a more efficient manner and perform better as a result.

Below are some of the key benefits.

  • Infrared heating warms the objects and people in the room directly, rather than the surrounding air. 
  • The spread of heat is even and almost instant. The radiant heat waves transfer directly to objects and people in the room and are instantly absorbed by them.
  • Compared to traditional heaters, infrared is more energy efficient, because it converts all of the electricity it uses into heat.
  • Better for the environment - carbon neutral; almost zero energy wastage. A great partner for additional green measures such as solar panels.
  • More cost effective. As infrared heaters can heat the objects rather than the air, they do not waste energy in the way that convection heaters do.
  • Has multiple health benefits and can tackle the many health issues impacted by convection heating. This is because infrared heaters heat the objects in a room rather than the surrounding air.

How does the installation process work?

Infrared heaters are placed differently in a room than traditional heatersbecause they transfer heat in a different way. 

Traditional heaters will heat the surrounding air, and are placed in the coldest part of the room because the heat rises. By contrast, infrared heaters will directly heat objects in a room rather than the surrounding air, and so they should be wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted.

Infrared panels have a slimline structure which gives them the added benefit of being space-saving.
