6 Reasons Why to Change to Infrared Heating
1. Infrared heating is 100% natural for our bodies and our well being. The human body is designed to acept and to emit infrared waves. Infrared heating works on the basis of gentle, long wave IR-C radiation which penetrates the air and heats solids. If you like the warmth from the sun then you will love the feeling you get from your new heating system.
2. Infrared Heating does not heat air but the fabric of the building. It is different to more traditional heating systems that heat the air. The fabric of the building can retain heat for longer, creating a butter thermal comfort, so your house will not only be warmer and cosier, there will be less dust, and for asthma and allergy suffers, less pollutants to breathe in.
3. Less damp and mould because Infrared heating does not heat air but the fabric of the building. Ths will mean there is no damp or mould to ruin your decorations and all of the rooom will reach the same temperature.
4. Greatly reduce energy bills. Research shows that a sufficiently insulated building, fitted with infrared panels, can expect significant reductions in energy usage. 100% of the electrical energy used by infrared systems is converted into heat. Infrared panels offer owners an unprecedented level of control over their property’s temperature and energy use, and offer higher thermal comfort levels. Compared to gas and oil heaters infrared systems installed in a normal sized home can reduce over 50% of annual energy expenditure.
5. Infrared technology requires virtually no maintenance or servicing. Infrared heating systems utilise no moving parts, vastly reducing their potential for problems and failures. Unlike water-based heating or fan assisted systems which may generate repair cost or the need for replacement parts.
6. Infrared heating is completely free of all carbon emissions and when used with electricity produced by either wind or solar generated electrical energy, is one of the only heating systems that can truly claim to be 100% carbon free.
