FAQ: Frequently asked questions about infrared heaters with thermostat
Which thermostat for infrared heating?
A separate thermostat (wired or radio thermostat) is only necessary if the infrared heating must be connected to a socket. For heating systems that are directly connected to the house control system, you do not need a separate thermostat.
Whether you should opt for a wired or wireless thermostat depends on the one hand on how you want to control your infrared heating (e.g. via rotary knob or smartphone app). On the other hand, there is also the question of how many infrared heaters you want to control. For example, if you have more than one heater, a wireless thermostat is worthwhile. With a wired or socket thermostat, you can only control one connected infrared heater.
When is infrared heating worthwhile?
An infrared heater is very worthwhile for spot heating. This makes it the ideal heating solution for spring and autumn, when temperatures fluctuate greatly. Heating with infrared is also particularly efficient because the desired comfortable temperature can be reached within a very short time. It usually takes only a few minutes for the infrared heating to heat up.
Infrared heating is also worthwhile for people with severe allergies and respiratory diseases (e.g. asthma). Unlike conventional radiators, it does not circulate the air in the room and therefore does not stir up dust. Infrared radiation is extremely healthy and has a positive effect on general well-being – similar to natural sunlight.
