Working in a similar way to the sun, infrared heaters send directional infrared heating waves straight from their heating elements to heat people and objects directly in their path. With no air temperature change but a high level of heat immediately achieved.
Unlike traditional heating, infrared heaters offer direct and instantaneous heat, utilising the direct infrared waves. No layering-up or hand-rubbing required! There is no warm up time required, with full heat output taking nothing more than the flick of a switch or the touch of a button. Giving you instant heat immediately where you need this heat to be.
Infrared heaters convert almost 100% of the electricity they use and turn it into warming heat, producing some of the most effective heating for your space.
Electric infrared heaters are clearly less damaging to the environment than gas heaters. About 40% of the heat from a gas heater goes straight up into the air. Electric infrared models aim heat at the people who use them. Steve Levy, Managing Director of Heat Outdoors says "Infrared heaters are 89% more efficient and less polluting than gas. They are waterproof and can be used inside a gazebo. Providing a sheltered area help to retain the heat better."
To enhance energy efficiency, choose a short-wave infrared lamp over a medium-wave one, says Stephen. He advises that a “good parabolic reflector” will increase the heater’s output without using extra energy. Also visitors wearing dark colours will feel warmer. Nothing reflects heat more than a shiny white puffer jacket. One infrared heater could warm up to four people seated at a rectangular table, or six at a circular table. “If you use green energy, the environmental cost is zero,” Levy says.
Because infrared outdoor heaters transmit warmth directly via the infrared waves, the heat they generate cannot be blown away by the wind, or other environmental conditions.
This makes the Shadow infrared range the ideal choice for outdoor environments of any size or shape. Suitable for garden patios, conservatories, dining pods, pergola’s and large open-air locations, such as food markets, events and outdoor festivals.
Infrared electric heaters run at a fraction of the cost of gas heaters. Compared to traditional conduction and convection heating systems they offer serious savings. That’s great news for businesses with outdoor entertainment areas such as pubs, restaurants and event spaces.
The economic benefit of infrared heaters is usually measured by reference to the size of the system you buy. For example, a typical infrared model that’s 60% smaller than a convection radiator produces the same amount of comfort.
In simple terms, an infrared heater using 600W of power could keep your customers just as comfortable as a traditional convection heater using 1kW. Therefore reducing the running cost by more than a third.
The lower running costs are making Infrared Heaters an efficent heating choice in many Industrial and Warehouse settings. The instant heat and ability to heat specific areas of the buildings are increasing important.
