Regardless of brand type or features, an infrared heater will typically save energy when compared to traditional methods of heating. The overall operating efficiencies of an infrared system are proven and measurable. When selecting an infrared tube heater, there are several key features that contribute to the overall quality and effectiveness. Items such as two-stage technology, burner design, exchanger tube properties and reflector material all have a vital role to play in the makings of an exceptional infrared heater.

Benefits of Heating with Infrared

A properly designed infrared heating system can offer numerous benefits including:

  • Reduced Energy Consumption: Independent studies have confirmed fuel savings from 20 to 50% when compared to a warm air system.
  • Low Harmful Emissions: Infrared heaters burn clean thus putting off low harmful emissions.
  • Thermal Comfort: Heat the floor zone; not the ceiling. Heat energy stored within ambient objects improves comfort levels in the space.
  • Indoor Air Quality: Infrared heaters do not rely on air currents to transfer heat. This minimizes the circulation of hazardous particles, chemical pollutants, and cross-contamination of regularly occupied areas.
  • Flexibility: Infrared heaters can be directed where heat is needed.
  • Modular Design: Individual zone controls increase personal comfort for all building occupants.
  • Air Stratification: Since it is not necessary to circulate air to heat the inside of the building, thermal stratification is reduced – increasing perceived comfort levels.
  • Recovery: Stored infrared energy provides a quick and effective solution for areas subject to periodic high air changes.
  • Durability: Low maintenance and quality components ensure a long life cycle.
