Frequently Asked Questions
Infrared heaters heat in a different way to convection heaters. Infrared heaters work by not heating the air, but by heating the objects, people and the structure of the space. So if you’re asking the question, do infrared heaters use a lot of electricity, then the answer is no.
Infrared panels can heat a whole house. The low wattage requirements of infrared compared with convection heaters makes it an attractive energy-saving heating solution. Convection is where the room warms up due to the movement of hot air, such as through storage heaters and gas central heating systems.
Far infrared heating is 100% safe and natural for our bodies, and our well-being, as the human body is designed to accept and emit infrared. The feeling of warmth from infrared is particularly comfortable. It is UV that is harmful, not infrared, and so there is no need to worry.
Infrared heaters work the instant they turn on, but they also stop radiating heat the instant they are turned off. Infrared heaters douse less energy, so it still might be a more cost-effective and energy-efficient option, especially if you don’t need to heat an entire room for long periods of time.
No fuel is burned to operate infrared heating panels. You can produce 100% clean heat when using them in conjunction with other renewable energy sources, such as solar panels. Infrared heating panels are more cost effective than conventional convection heaters because of the method of heating a room.
