Choosing the right infrared heater2022-07-18T08:25:09+02:00
How to get your heating
Choosing the right infrared heater is done in 4 easy steps with heatness®. Here, you benefit from the experience of thousands of satisfied customers, which we have naturally incorporated into our product development. So we can offer you different models of infrared heaters and thermostats, which are optimised for your respective application. Practical accessories extend the application possibilities of our infrared heaters even further.
Calculating the right size and heat output of an infrared heater for a room is quite simple and can be done in 2 steps:
Size of the room*
*These figures are based on a well-insulated room with a room height of 2.5 m.
TIP: If the insulation is poor or the heat requirement is higher (bathroom), round up or go for the next larger heater!
Step 2: Determine position
An infrared heater can be mounted either on the wall or on the ceiling. The advantage of wall mounting is obviously that the installation itself is usually easier. You also have a wider choice of infrared heating models. With ceiling mounting, you benefit from greater efficiency and at the same time save wall space because the infrared heater is mounted inconspicuously and flat on the ceiling. As an alternative to wall or ceiling mounting, our infrared heaters can also be installed freestanding. This way the heater remains mobile.
TIP: No matter which position you choose, the most important thing is that the heater “radiates” unhindered to where you want it to be warm.
Step 3: Choose a model
As soon as you have chosen the desired position of your infrared heater, you can select the suitable surface from our wall heaters. Here we offer our Simpel models, a simple and affordable infrared heater with a frame. Our picture heaters provide an individual touch in your home. These can either be printed with a design of your choice or a design from our database. If you want something more modern, then our frameless glass heaters are the right choice for you. These are available in white as well as black. In bathrooms or entrance halls, our mirror heaters are very popular. These combine heating and mirror in one device and thus save space. In addition, our mirror heaters are fog-free in operation. For highest efficiency we have our ceramic heaters. These are our top models and are particularly useful for high heating requirements.
To make the most of the efficiency of an infrared heater, we recommend using electric thermostats to control the heating according to demand. This way, the heating is only switched on when it is actually necessary. Our controls range from simple thermostats for the socket to wired thermostats and radio thermostats. So we offer the right control for every application.
All heatness® thermostats comply with the EU Ecodesign Directive
All heatness® thermostats comply with the European Commission’s Regulation No. 1275/2008 and are therefore characterised by particularly low power consumption. In addition, our thermostats naturally meet the Ecodesign Directive and thus comply with the requirements for a modern and efficient control system for electric heating.
Easy to install with a plug-in thermostat
heatness® infrared heaters can be easily controlled with plug-in thermostats via an ordinary household socket – just like a lamp. Simply plug it in and it gets warm.
Plug in the adapter and the infrared heater, control the temperature wirelessly via radio – and you’re done.
