Energy Efficient Infrared Technology

Infrared leads the market in the provision of energy efficient heating for outdoor areas. Conventional heaters, which heat by convection, are generally very inefficient in outdoor spaces; these heaters heat by warming the air, and in an outdoor space this quickly escapes to cooler areas. Infrared heaters overcome this challenge by generating radiated heat. This is much more efficient because it heats people and objects directly without losing heat through the circulation of air. Infrared heaters heat in the same way the sun warms the Earth, so that sitting beneath one of our heaters feels a little like sunbathing on a cloudless day – without the risk of sunburn!

Infrared heat encompasses a span of the electromagnetic spectrum – and our collection of infrared heaters includes models from across the scale: from ultra-efficient far infrared to budget glowing near infrared. Also known as long-wave infrared, far infrared is the form of infrared most easily absorbed by our bodies. This makes it the most efficient form of infrared for human comfort heating, warming gently without giving off any visible light. At the other end of the spectrum lies near infrared heat – also known as low glare or short-wave. Near infrared gives off a fiery red glow and a more intense heat which is less easily absorbed by the body. It’s a less efficient but cheaper alternative which may be an economical option if the heater is intended for infrequent or occasional use. For a comfortable middle ground we also sell a range of ultra-low-glare heaters which use a mid-range form of infrared heat which cuts the amount of visible light produced to the faintest glow.

Confused? Don’t worry! Our friendly sales team are always more than happy to talk you through the options and help you choose the form of infrared that’s perfect for your budget and heating requirements. With minimal maintenance costs and quick and easy electrical installation, the associated costs are kept to an absolute minimum – so no nasty surprises.

Domestic Patio Heaters

Using infrared heaters to warm your patio is a great way to turn your back garden into a social space. Instantaneous directed heat will banish draughts and chilly breezes, allowing you to enjoy barbecues, romantic meals and epic garden parties throughout the year without catching cold. We stock a range of weatherproof and waterproof heaters which are suitable for installation outdoors whatever the weather. Fitted safety guards make our heaters a great choice for families – ensuring total protection for curious fingers!

Our extensive range of shapes, sizes and power settings guarantee you an ideal heater for outdoor spaces of all sizes – whether you’re heating a balcony, patio, terrace or conservatory, or fitting a heater beneath an awning, garden umbrella or railing. You can also choose from a range of colours and designs – so you have the option to go cheap and cheerful or upgrade to something a little more sophisticated.

Commercial Patio Heaters
