How does an Infrared Heater Work?

The future of energy efficient electric heating.

How does infrared heating differ from other forms of heating?​

An infrared heater is a simple unit that is placed on the wall or ceiling. The heater comes in various forms: a slim white panel; a mirror; coloured glass (in a choice of 10 vibrant colours); customisable picture prints, and high quality aluminium. 

  • The heater has no moving parts or fans, and makes no noise.
  • Radiant heat waves travel directly from the heater to the objects and people in the room, and are absorbed by those objects.
  • The room instantly feels comfortable and cosy, because the heat is radiated everywhere. The heat does not rise to the ceiling (where we don’t need it) as it would with traditional convection heating.
What is meant by 'traditional convection heating'?
  • The term “convection heating” refers to a type of heater that uses convection currents to heat and circulate air within a room.
  • Several types of radiators and heaters fall under the heading of “traditional convection heating”: standard ‘wet’ radiators (heated by oil or gas), electric storage heaters, electric fan heaters, oil-filled electric heaters, etc. 
  • The primary difference between convection and infrared heaters is the way in which they transfer heat. 

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.

Infrared heating is swiftly growing in popularity for many reason, learn more below.
