Eco (Infrared) heaters produce heat that is similar to the heat produced by the sun. The infrared rays emitted are easily absorbed by the items in your home, which gently increases the temperature of their surroundings. As cool surfaces heat up, infrared heaters raise the ambient temperature of the room. Besides warming up your home, infrared heaters provide many other benefits.
Compared to our European partners like Germany and France, infrared heating is a relatively new thing in the UK and has taken some time to catch on. Most of us have settled for the old-fashioned boiler and radiator combo but with the rise of the green agenda in the last ten to fifteen years, more and more of us are looking for safe and cost-effective alternatives.
The truth is that infrared heating has a number of benefits for households and businesses that are looking for a more carbon-friendly way to keep their properties warm. Although not a renewable energy it can be incorporated into green energy production such as that from solar panels to produce a more carbon-efficient approach to heating a particular space.
