Infrared products are excellent heating solutions for all domestic properties and can
be especially effective in older homes with higher levels of heat loss. Residents living in
a thatched house built in 1350 managed to significantly reduce their heating bills by
replacing their old storage heaters and plug-in convection heaters with infrared panels.
Monthly electricity bills dropped from £153 to £40 and, as infrared is easily
absorbed by surrounding surfaces, the walls of the property are kept regularly warm, which
has led to a noticeable reduction in condensation and damp.
Altringham Market has unique heating requirements because of its large,
open-plan structure. To keep its sizable indoor seating area well-heated, Herschel ceramic
heaters were suspended from the ceiling to provide an inconspicuous source of warmth.
Infrared warms customers and the surrounding walls and surfaces directly, creating
comfortable ambient temperatures that aren’t affected by air movement, draughts or
poor insulation. With infrared heating, the market space is now kept warm with reliable,
effective heating that’s easily controlled using wireless thermostats.
