Friday, 1 June 2018 15:11:17 Europe/London

You can’t halt the march of progress and in just a few years we’ve seen the landscape of electric outdoor heaters change dramatically.

We’ve now got stylish no glare heaters and appliances with innovative carbon elements, but while traditional halogen heaters can be installed just about anywhere, these newer models are designed for more specific applications. If you’ve been reading up on outdoor heaters and have seen phrases like ‘this product is best for sheltered outdoor spaces or lofty interiors’ you might not necessarily know what that means. Where do you draw the line with a sheltered space? What do you class as a lofty interior?

Why It’s Best to Stick with Brand-Name Infrared Heaters

Thursday, 12 April 2018 08:10:44 Europe/London

As we already mentioned in our blog from last March, infrared is one of the oldest forms of heating known to man – it’s just the technology that’s changed over the years. While we might be familiar with the wood-burning stoves and bar fires that use infrared to heat spaces, people are less au fait with the more contemporary infrared products on the market. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge can sometimes be exploited by businesses for their own gain. Less reputable companies might make outlandish and unsubstantiated claims about their products’ running costs, whereas others who have jumped on the infrared bandwagon may lack the necessary experience to accurately specify requirements for property interiors. If you’re thinking of installing an infrared system in your home or business, here’s why it pays to stick with the big-name brands on the market…

Infrared Heaters: The Oldest 21st Century Heating System

Wednesday, 28 March 2018 15:03:30 Europe/London

Infrared heaters are relative newcomers to the heating industry, an industry dominated by firmly established heating methods. For some time now, the UK has been preoccupied with traditional plumbed heating systems. Since the 19th century, cast iron central heating radiators, and their subsequent derivatives, have ruled over our households. Because of this, infrared heating, and electric heating in general, has become synonymous with the modern world. But infrared isn’t a new phenomenon. In fact, it’s been with us for far longer than you might think…

Light Heaters for Atmospheric Evenings

Friday, 2 March 2018 13:44:32 Europe/London

A light in the darkness – it’s imagery that speaks to our most primitive instincts as well as our more complex emotions. It’s a symbol of hope, a beacon, the hearth fires blazing. It’s the expectation of coming in from the cold or the promise of a good time had with friends. Nobody understands this psychology better than our restaurateurs and pub owners who for years have been enticing us in from the street with their moodlily-lit beer gardens and glowing heaters. They let us forget about our cold northerly climate for an evening and enjoy a little taste of continental living. Light heaters instantly make a space more inviting and can make even the average domestic patio feel as luxuriant and exotic as the terrace of a hacienda.
