Infrared Heating

Why install infrared heating?

  • 100% efficient
  • Make use of renewable and stored energy
  • Energy saving compared to conventional heaters
  • Direct heat when you need it
  • No condensation, reduces damp
  • Ceiling mounted panels leave walls free
  • Control by zone


Infrared heating can be 40% more efficient than conventional electric heating and can run off your renewable energy source. What’s more, infrared panels provide healthy heat without condensation. They work by converting electricity into radiant heat. Infrared is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The heat is the same feeling of warmth as the winter sun on your face and the heat from a coal fire. It is even the same form of heat emitted by your own body. It is the most basic form of heating known to man.

Infrared is the direct transfer of heat from the heater to the object (you and the room around you) without heating the air in between. It’s the same heat we feel from an environment warmed by the sun, and the wavelength most efficiently absorbed by the body. It is 100% safe and natural (it’s UV from the sun that is harmful, not infrared).

Convection heaters which primarily heat volumes of air, which then has to transfer its heat to the building in order to warm the thermal mass. The problem is that hot air rises to the ceiling (where you don’t want it) and easily escapes with draughts and open doors. The direct transfer of heat to the building is why Infrared is more efficient and saves energy compared to convection heating.

Infrared offers a more comfortable heat because you don’t have cold floors and stuffy air or condensation.

Humans are radiant objects. More than 60% of our sense of comfort or discomfort is governed by our radiant heat gain or loss. Only 15% of our sense of comfort is governed by air temperature and movement. This means we usually feel warm if we’re absorbing heat from our environment and often feel cold if we’re radiating out our own body heat to the outside world.

Infrared heaters are controllable by zone, with thermostats in each room spaces can be heated according to use ensuring that no energy is wasted.

With a choice of ceiling mounted panels, wall panels, mirrors and even bespoke art work the system can be designed to suit your home or business needs.

Maintaining infrared heating

With virtually no maintenance the infrared heating option offers peace of mind to our customers.

Simply wipe down the panels occasionally to keep them dust free.
