Cost Savings with Far Infrared Heating

The important thing about using our infrared panels is that you are not wasting energy heating air.  You are only heating objects in your home that require heating.  As you are heating surface area instead of volume you can get substantial energy savings.

Traditional convector heaters need to get their surface warm and rely on this to heat the air.  Heat pumps also rely on heating the air first – it is only when this air becomes warm, you feel warmer.  Because warm air rises in the presence of cooler air, the heated air can be easily sucked away by drafts or wind, and must be replaced frequently by more heated air in order to sustain ambient comfort. This all amounts to wasted energy and higher heating bills.  

Our infrared heating panels work very differently.  Once turned on, the panel will heat up and start producing infrared heat within just a couple   of minutes, warming both your home and you.  The energy efficiency is the way the far infrared heats objects and the fabric of your house which then radiates that warmth back.  Because of this they can run for less hours and can achieve comfort levels at temperatures below air temperatures required with other systems.  

Far infrared heaters can also be zoned in your house heating rooms as and when you require the heat, for further savings.  These savings have been reported to be between 30 - 60% less than conventional heating (US-DOE/NAHB studies have shown a 33% savings over heat pumps).  Another saving from infrared comes due to the size of panel required.  They can be up to 40% smaller than a traditional convection radiator to produce the same level of comfort.  We recommend using between 50 watts and 100 watts per m2 depending on how well insulated your home or office is.  A better insulated space will be closer   to the 50w/m2, while an old uninsulated property will be nearer the 100w/m2.

Our infrared panels also have a substantially lower buy in cost over many popular heating options, they can easily be installed and require no maintenance costs, filter changes, servicing, etc.  They typically have a 100,000 hour lifespan with no on-going costs.
