Infrared Heating Systems
We offer a range of attractive and effective infrared heating panels specially developed to suit residential properties.
Infrared panels supply the heating efficiency inherent in electrical heating. The same cannot be said about gas central heating systems with associated inefficiencies.
What is Infrared Heating?
Infrared or radiant heating transfers energy through infrared radiation. Heating panels which can be located in the floor, on the wall or the ceiling, use radiant heat transfer to deliver heat to people and objects in the room. As an example, radiant heating is the effect you feel when you can feel the warmth of a hot stovetop element from across the room.
45% Cost Savings
Energy savings of up to 45% are achievable by switching to infrared heating. As incredible as they are, these savings have been achieved with real customers as well as being documented in numerous studies. However all installations are different and as such there are no guarantees. But by understanding the mechanisms how infrared saves energy is the key knowing what to expect and believe.

Reduced Air Exchange Energy Losses
The air in our homes and buildings is constantly being exchanged, anywhere from 1 to 30 times per hour. As a result we are constantly heating the new air up to ambient temperature.Infra-red waves heat objects so they are not as affected by air exchange. The comfortable ambient air temperature when using infrared heating is 2-3 degrees below that of a convection heating system. Hence the energy spent heating new air up to ambient is less and we use less energy.
Reduced Skin Evaporation
Convection heating dries out the air. In addition to the harmful effects dry air has on the body, dry air increases skin evaporation rates which in turn cools us. In contrast, infrared heating maintains a healthy humidity, allowing us to be comfortable at a lower ambient temperature which results in less heating requirement and more energy savings.
Infrared heating delivers warmth when and where you need it. Infrared warms in 2 ways,
- directly, just like the heat you would feel from a fireplace
- indirectly by heating your surroundings which in turn radiate their own heat
The direct heating component is a very local heat and when combined with 24/7 multi-point temperature controllers makes zoned heating (even within one room) a reality. This level of control over your energy delivery is simply not possible with convection heating systems.
Infrared Ceiling Panels
Ideal for offices and commercial properties.
