Direct Radiated Heat
Infrared heats people and objects directly, warming everything in its field of heating without spilling over and heating surrounding areas. This gives a level of control which is impossible with other forms of heating. Traditional convection heaters, such as gas or oil central heating radiators, work by heating air which circulates around the entire room, moving from warm spaces to cold spaces. In practice this means that you can only warm a space by heating the whole room! This is especially inefficient when trying to heat large, high-ceilinged, open-plan or outdoor spaces.
Infrared, on the other hand, allows you to focus heat on the areas that need it. This can save you money in so many situations. When installing heating in a working garage, for instance, you can focus heat on your workstation without trying to heat the entire draughty space. The money-saving benefits are even more tangible in open-plan offices, warehouses, churches and other large open spaces. In a warehouse or factory, you can provide zones of infrared heating at a low level over workstations and busy areas, without wasting energy trying to heat all the way up to the ceiling. Outdoor locations, as entirely unenclosed spaces, are almost impossible to heat with convection heaters – but with infrared heaters you can warm guests and clients with a direct heat like the warmth of the sun. Cheaper, more efficient – a fantastic eco-friendly heating solution.
