  • Winter Infrared Heating

    Radiant Heaters With winter here in full swing it is important that we keep our homes heated in the most efficient ways possible to save money and resources. Many of our furnaces run all day long to see a comfortable constant temperature during the winter months. This can lead to high heating bills and use a lot of energy resources all at the same time. To help with heating costs you can purchase a infrared heater to place in a room of the house that you are going to be...

  • Ceramic Heaters: Radiating Infrared Heat

    Radiant Heaters Not all infrared heaters look like lines of glowing red lava held within glass tubes in a heating element. This can be an intimidating thing to look at, let alone allow to heat up the room you are in. However, intimidating or not, the way that an infrared heater warms up a room is impressive and thorough. Radiating heat like the sun radiates with rays, infrared heaters fill the room with warmth in a uniform pattern without the aid of a fan to carry the heated molecules. This...

  • The Ups & Downs of Radiant Heaters

    Radiant Heaters I have a friend who lives in a house with a radiant heater in every room, which sometimes can seem too warm. Such a thing only exists because his landlord controls the temperature the radiant heaters are set at while not living in an apartment in the house he is the landlord of. As a result, my friend's house is toasty to the point where when I come over I compare it to a sauna. Objectively, having a central heating system with radiant heat at the core is...

  • Infrared Heaters: The Way to Save

    Radiant Heaters Saving money is something everyone gets excited about these days, particularly because of the current economic climate. Industrial companies, commercial companies, offices and home owners save money in various ways, depending on their circumstances. However, one way individuals in each of these categories can benefit from a sustainable and low-cost endeavor is by purchasing infrared heaters for their heating needs. Not only will the choice of an infrared heating system help the contents of people's wallets, but it also keeps the air cleaner since infrared heaters emit zero...

  • Radiant Heaters: Providing Heat From the Floor on Up

    The forerunner of modern central heating was the Roman hypocausts. These were used to heat mainly thermae (hot baths) and villas. How they worked is the floor was raised above the ground on pillars. On top of the pillars was a cement sandwich with tiles as the bun. Space was left in the walls to allow hot air and smoke from the furnace to pass through. It would go through the enclosed areas and leave through flues in the roof. This type of heating was very labor-intensive because a fire...

Industry Information

Radiant Heaters

Radiant heaters use electromagnetic radiation from invisible infrared light to heat objects, materials or spaces with the help of a reflective shield. The infrared light gives off radiant heat waves which are located near the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Electric infrared heaters use a heating element, commonly a filament of coiled tungsten, while radiant gas heaters may use natural gas or propane to create a source of heat. As infrared heat waves are produced, the reflective panel is used to direct the heat, allowing for specific areas to receive concentrated portions of heat if desired. Some heaters use fans to redistribute air molecules around the space and to spread the heated air faster, but these are not necessary for efficient infrared heating. Radiant heat is absorbed by the surface of an object itself without heating the air molecules in between. Radiant or infrared space heaters are used in large buildings or spaces where good insulation is ineffective or inefficient such as warehouses, garages or sheds. Examples of other common uses include: room or space heaters, industrial applications such as plastic welding, drying of coatings and glass processing, animal care in zoos and veterinary clinics or medical uses for helping ease arthritic pain.

An advantage of radiant heaters is that they provide an immediate source of heat. The effects of infrared waves are felt almost instantly. Forced air heaters rely on air molecules to transfer heat energy, thus disturbing dust and particles in the air, but radiant heat is absorbed by objects and surfaces rather than the air, making it far more efficient. Forced air heaters may result in heating odors and disturbing noise from the fan. Infrared heaters are therefore preferable options in residential or smaller spaces. The removal of a lag time between turning on a heater and feeling its effects means that energy is being saved. Due to their high energy efficiency, radiant heaters are considered a “green” or environmentally sustainable method of heating and offer many advantages in terms of both cost-effectiveness and environmental concerns. Other advantages include the lack of burning fuels required by electric infrared heaters as there are no harmful fumes being emitted into the atmosphere, and oxygen and moisture are not removed from the air at such a high rate. As infrared heaters do not rely on air molecules to transport heat and instead actually heat the object, or the air, heating patterns are more uniform. With conventional heaters, there are often pockets of warm and cool air depending on convection currents within a space. The temperature of the heating element in a radiant heater is typically lower than other types of heaters ensuring that there is a reduced risk of fire and burning.
