FAQ: Frequently asked questions about infrared heating
Are infrared heaters electricity guzzlers?
Although infrared heaters are powered by electricity, they do not necessarily have to be power guzzlers. In a well-insulated building, with the right electricity tariff and using an intelligent thermostat, the final electricity consumption of infrared heating is kept within limits.
How expensive is it to heat with infrared?
The cost of infrared heating is comparatively low. The purchase costs are about 30-70% less than those of conventional heating systems. The consumption costs are not high either. Heatness® infrared panels provide pleasant warmth even at low room temperatures.
How effective is infrared heating?
Electric heaters have a bad reputation because they run on electricity. But infrared heating can be equipped with a thermostat. This practical temperature controller detects when the ideal room temperature has been reached and switches the heating off automatically. This way, electricity is only consumed when heat is actually being generated.
