Heat from the Sun - Infrared

Infrared Heating Explained

Infrared is a completely natural part of the electromagnetic spectrum. When we come into contact with it, we feel it in the form of heat. Think of that first feel of the sun's heat on your skin as winter turns to spring - that's the radiant heat generated by infrared. Infrared heating works in exactly this way too. The heaters' infrared waves warm you (and other objects) when they make contact with them.  This is a form of heating that we are all used to - 100% safe and natural. It is the same as the natural infrared from the sun and not to be confused with the harmful UV that we also get from the sun. 

Infrared heats objects directly without heating the air between them. When used in your house, infrared panels will heat objects - not the air.  That means walls, ceilings, floors, and you. Once these objects are warm, they will retain the heat for a period of time - with the panels only needing to maintain the temperature at this level.

Traditional 'convection' heating (radiators, storage heaters and fan heaters) work by warming up the air in a room. This warm air is dissipated much more readily ("who left the door open!!") and of course, there is much more to heat by this method. Hot air rises too - if only we lived on the ceiling!

The result? Infrared space heaters use up to 60% less energy than convection heating to heat an equivalent space.
