As our decarbonising economy moves away from gas in favour of cleaner and renewable electricity, infrared heating offers a modern and future proof energy-efficient heating system that has substantially lower installation and maintenance costs, compared with traditional fan-assisted or water-based systems.
Infrared heating is designed around how the human body works i.e. we are designed to accept and emit infrared waves, so infrared heating gives the same feeling as natural sunlight. Infrared heating does not escape when doors and windows are opened, unlike traditional conduction and convection systems. This means infrared heating is 100% efficient, as nothing escapes to the outdoors.
Further energy savings come from the fact that the home’s building fabric retains infrared heat for much longer than traditional heating, providing more thermal comfort and lower carbon emissions.
