Infrared Heating is the answer for spot or area heating and for total building heating needs. Infrared Heaters heat like the sun by transferring radiant heat energy directly into the area to be heated and creating a warm comfort zone at the floor level. This extremely efficient method of heating can result in fuel savings of between 30% and 50% when compared to forced air convection heating.
Radiant heating consists of "radiant energy" being emitted from a heat source. Radiant heating heats a building through radiant heat, rather than other conventional methods including convection heating. The heat energy is emitted from a warm element and warms people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air. The internal air temperature for radiant heated buildings may be lower than for a conventionally heated building to achieve the same level of body comfort.
