Infra-Red Remedial

If you haven’t already heard of Infra-red heating, you soon will! In truth, the technology has been around for a while but has been largely ignored with many people generally opting for more traditional convection systems like hot water radiators and central boilers.

However, with everyone becoming more aware of global warming and switching to renewable technologies, the infrared heater is gaining more attention from both home and business owners as a sustainable and clean way to keep a house, or offices warm.

WHAT IS INFRA-RED HEATING?

Infra-red heaters, heat matter compared to traditional convection heating which heats air.

Traditional heating generally works by warming up the surrounding air so that it spreads slowly into a room, which generally takes longer. Whereas infra-red heating works by directly heating matter like the building itself rather than the air within the property which is quicker, more efficient and sustainable.

Infra-red heaters emit infra-red rays which travel through the air until they reach an object, these are then absorbed causing them to produce heat providing a comfortable temperature for the room or entire property. It works in a similar way to when you stand in the sunshine it immediately warms your body.

You don’t need to be in direct contact with the infra-red panel to feel the benefits as the whole room will radiate the heat after a short while.

Unlike with convection heating when you open the door even just for a minute you notice the property gets allot colder quite quickly, this is because the heated air leaves the building, with infra-red this is not the case.

BENEFITS OF INFRA-RED HEATING?

So why would you choose infra-red heating compared to more traditional convection heating system? Well, that is simple.

There are many advantages in changing your whole heating system to infrared, among them the cost savings and the ease with which they can be mounted on a wall. Particularly for businesses, there are enough benefits to consider it as a viable renewable alternative. Infrared panel heater is one of the most efficient heating solutions for any property.

• Reduce your heating bills – Infra-red is powered by electricity which is cheaper than gas.

• No maintenance or servicing - no more waiting around for expensive annual service appointments.

• No damp or mould – convention heating systems heat the air which can create damp and mould within a property whereas infra-red heats matter so it doesn’t create moisture.

• Reduce your carbon footprint and help save the environment

“Our care homes NIBE system needed to be replaced so we looked at many alternatives and decided to go with infra-red heating because it not only was the cheapest and less intrusive option for us but had many great benefits for our elderly residents especially those with breathing difficulties. With it being a new technology to us we were sceptical however after just a week of it being installed we had many of our residents pointing out that they had really noticed the difference. Not only commenting on the building being much more consistently warm throughout but also that it was a much more comfortable heat instead of the humid heat that they had originally got used to. We have been really impressed and would definitely not move back to convection heating.”
