Infrared Heaters - Efficient Outdoor Heating
The most affordable mode of heating on the market, infrared heaters warm up any outdoor or semi-outdoor environment instantly. That’s because infrared heaters transfer heat in a similar way to the sun: through invisible waves. The waves are completely harmless and bring instant warmth to all nearby without needing to warm up the surrounding air first.
Infrared heaters waste no time or energy heating air. They run at a fraction of the cost of traditional electric, central heating systems or gas heaters in delivering heat to the area quickly and efficiently. These heaters truly help businesses and homeowners to keep energy costs down, while making the most of their outdoor or large or semi-indoor spaces.
Infrared heaters are least damaging to the environment.
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 which helps by providing a sheltered area 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.

A business’s best friend
Infrared heaters run at a fraction of the cost of gas heaters, and 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, reducing the running cost by nearly two thirds.
The sizzling science of infrared
Unlike traditional heating, infrared heaters offer direct and instantaneous heat – no layering-up or hand-rubbing required.
Working in a similar way to the sun, infrared heaters send infrared waves straight from their heating elements to people and objects directly in their path. Rather than warming the surrounding air (like a traditional radiator), infrared heat is enjoyed at the flick of a switch.
And because infrared heaters transmit warmth through direct waves, the heat they generate can’t be blown away or escape in the wind. This makes them the ideal choice for outdoor environments of any size – from garden patios and conservatories to large open-air locations, such as food markets and outdoor festivals.
