Infrared heating systems and panels are exciting and innovative products that function by heating objects rather than heating air, a principle that brings with it numerous benefits and advantages. Powered by electricity, these heaters transmit 'far infrared' rays, invisible to the human eye but have the potential to vastly reduce heating costs and transform the way rooms, buildings and spaces are heated in the UK.
With the possibility of installation on walls and ceilings, flexibility is hugely increased. While infrared rays are invisible to the human eye, they act on surfaces rather than air currents, offering a vastly superior level of efficiency for sustaining temperatures. Far infrared technology has been adapted to heat domestic homes, office's, retail and commercial environments.
HOW DO I CONTROL THE HEAT?
Like conventional heating systems, far infrared technology is controlled through a range of programmable thermostats, receivers and sensors.
ARE THERE HEALTH ADVANTAGES?
A major advantage of infrared heating is that air is not used as the medium for transporting the heat. There is less air movement which reduces the amount of dust lifted into the air. The result of this is you have far less dust and allergens in the air we breathe. The air is cooler which also helps breathing.
Another factor to consider is the drying out of damp walls. Infrared heats the walls and not the air combating mould and mildew which in turn improves the air quality.
ISN’T ELECTRIC HEATING EXPENSIVE?
Yes but Redwell panels use up to 60% less energy than tradtional convection heaters offering a saving compared to most systems.
