How can infrared radiant heating save me money?
Using Infrared Radiant heating to warm objects and people directly rather than warming up the air will use about half the energy over a sustained period. We all know that energy is energy so how come? There's a simple answer, air leaks, escapes through open doors and windows, warm air rises above your head
What is infrared?
In the year 1800, Sir William Herschel discovered the existence of infrared by performing a simple experiment. Herschel passed sunlight through a prism. As sunlight passes through the prism, the prism divides it into a rainbow of
He noticed that the temperature increased from the blue to the red part of the spectrum. Then he placed a thermometer just past the red part of the spectrum in a region where there was no visible light and found that the temperature there was even higher. Herschel
How do I work out how many heaters I need?
The rule of thumb when calculating the energy required for Infrared Radiant heating is to multiply the area by 50 watts to get the total energy requirements for the room, that's just the length by the width in meters times 50, then just choose the heaters from the product list, or just send us the room measurements in meters or feet on our contact us page and we can do it for you, we may just ask a few more questions about your building, it really is that easy.
How does infrared radiant heating work?
Infrared Radiant Heaters use the oldest form of
Infrared radiant heaters transmit infrared energy which converts into heat when absorbed by objects.
It is the infrared heater surface temperature and the emissivity value of the surface coating that determines how much infrared is transmitted and its wavelength, nothing else.
Because the energy is only turned into heat as it comes into contact with solid objects, the heat provided is highly efficient as very little is lost into the atmosphere. As everything absorbs infrared and everything emits infrared so the infrared heat from the panel is absorbed into the fabric of the room, walls, floors, objects
How does infrared radiant heating eliminate condensation?
Simply by warming the fabric of the
Can infrared radiant heating harm me?
Simply put, no Infrared radiant heating does not harm you or anyone around you. Everything absorbs or emits infrared. It is the way the sun keeps us warm on earth. There are no
Why use our infrared heater panel?
We have developed one of the most efficient infrared radiant heating panels you can buy.
Our infrared heater panels are built to the highest standards, they meet the requirements of BS7671 and emit infrared in the far and long wave, The panel was designed in the UK and is made in the UK enabling us to make large quantities of the best quality with the shortest lead times.
The look of the panel is unique, and the design is registered with the UK Intellectual property office.
The result is a lightweight low energy radiant heater panel that is highly efficient, looks great, is easy to install and will last for years. We are able to build standard panels in a variety of sizes and wattages, you can have us print onto it a photo from the family album or choose from one of our stock pictures, we can even build you a heated mirror.
