Spot Heating

Spot heating should be utilized when only a portion of a building is to be heated. Both high intensity infrared heaters and low intensity infrared tube heaters can be used in spot heating applications.

Low intensity tube heaters are typically placed in a U-shaped configuration for spot heating. By design, a U-tube will place the hottest tube directly adjacent to the coldest tube for optimal comfort levels and allows for maximum flexibility in the placement of the heaters.


High intensity heaters are usually easier to install and less costly for spot heating applications. Buildings that are poorly insulated, loosely constructed, have high ceiling heights and/or high heat loss per square foot, are more conducive to high intensity heaters.
