Infrared Panel Heater


Infrared light is the reason why we feel warm when the sun is shining in the middle of a wintery day. Conventional wisdom would suggest that if the air temperature were freezing, then you too would feel cold. However the infrared waves emitted by the sun travel unimpeded through space, and warm any object they hit, including your body. Conventional heating in the home works by warming up the air around you; so for instance a radiator does most of its heating through convection currents (it does very limited heating via infrared). When the radiator warms up, it heats the air directly around it, which then expands and rises. As the hot air rises, it creates a vacuum behind it, which pulls colder air into contact with the radiator, causing it to heat up. As the hot air begins to cool down it drops down back to the floor level. This cold air gets heated again and this process keeps repeating itself – this is known as convection heating.

Benefits

  • The units are compact and can be designed to provide another function such as a mirror in the bathroom, which helps save room.
  • Since infrared heaters heat solid objects in the home like walls, they prevent any moisture build up on these surfaces and so inhibit the spread of mould.
  • Fit and forget technology, very little maintenance required
  • These heaters are emission free (i.e. no fuel is burnt in their operation) and if they are used in conjunction with renewable energy sources like solar PV, you are producing 100% clean heat.
  • The way these heaters heat a room is more efficient than conventional convection heaters so they are more cost effective to run.
  • Infrared heaters warm solid objects with a thermal capacity, therefore if a room is draughty or a door is opened, the solid objects retain the heat keeping the room warm.
