Is Infrared Heat Lost Through Air Movement?

Monday, 4 December 2017 16:08:05 Europe/London

Though it's an established fact that radiation travels through the air rather than heating it, you may occasionally see a line of text in some product descriptions that reads 'the heated area of this product will be reduced if it is installed in an exposed or draughty location’ – or something similar. This can be quite confusing for customers who are unfamiliar with infrared. If radiation is unaffected by the surrounding air, surely it doesn't matter where you place an infrared heater? To answer this question properly, we have to shift perspective: instead of asking ‘is infrared affected by air movement’, it’s more appropriate to look at how air movement affects our bodies and how that can affect our perception of temperature.

Infrared Heating: Keeping Animals Warm this Winter

Friday, 1 December 2017 10:57:00 Europe/London

Winter is categorically here: early morning frosts twinkle across the fields as autumn colours fade and temperatures drop. It’s the time of year that horses and livestock are brought inside to hunker down in the hay and enjoy a few evenings of shelter from the freezing darkness. They might be safely inside, but how warm are they? Agricultural buildings have a reputation for being tricky to heat – as poorly insulated open-plan layouts, with a mix of sheltered and unsheltered spaces, can often amplify chilly draughts and create random air movement. With few conventional rooms in farmyard buildings, maintaining an adequate level of heat can be difficult – and almost impossible for conventional heating systems. For effective farmyard heating, with four-legged creatures accounted for, there’s only one viable option: infrared heat.

Garage Heaters – Keeping Warm at Work this Winter

Thursday, 30 November 2017 14:42:02 Europe/London

I think it’s fair to say that winter has well and truly arrived. Gritting machines are out in force, the pavements shimmer with thin layers of frost, and venturing outside into the biting cold is the last thing on anyone’s mind. For some of us, working outside, or partially outside, is unavoidable. Whether you’re a mid-week tinkerer, full-time mechanic, or classic car enthusiast, working in a garage throughout the winter can be a real test of endurance. Luckily for you, there is a solution: a way to beat the winter chills.

Heating with Style – Infrared Heating Panels

Wednesday, 29 November 2017 08:54:43 Europe/London

When you’ve invested so much care and attention into your interior design scheme, it can be very disheartening to have to try and work around a boxy and unattractive heating solution. All the accent rugs and throw pillows in the world won’t be enough to offset these bulky monstrosities, so what can be done? Usually we’re left with two options: cover them up but reduce their efficiency in the process, or try and position the room layout to minimise their impact on the overall aesthetic. Neither of these choices is particularly agreeable but with infrared panels you can avoid this problem altogether – in fact, you might even want to make your heater the centrepiece! They’re one of the few heating solutions that are modern and slimline, and so effortlessly elegant that they augment the space around them rather than detract from its appeal. We offer a wide array of heating panels for every space so take a look to see how they could fit your style.
