Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about outdoor infrared heating? We've got you covered! Check out our FAQs section below for answers to commonly asked questions about using infrared heaters in your outdoor space.

How do infrared patio heaters work?

Infrared patio heaters work by emitting infrared radiation, which is a form of electromagnetic radiation that travels in waves and carries heat energy. When the infrared rays are absorbed by objects and people in their path, they are converted into heat, providing warmth directly to the objects and people without heating the surrounding air. This is in contrast to traditional heaters that warm the air, which then heats the surrounding objects and people.

How do I work out how many and what size infrared patio heaters I need?

To determine the number and size of infrared patio heaters needed for your outdoor space, consider the area size, ambient temperature, wind conditions, and manufacturer's recommendations. As a general rule, use 1,500-2,000 watts per 10 square feet for moderate climates and 2,000-3,000 watts per 10 square feet for colder climates. Follow proper spacing, safety clearances, and installation guidelines for optimal performance.  Consulting with a professional or manufacturer can provide further guidance.

How much does it cost to run infrared outdoor heaters?

The cost of operating infrared outdoor heaters depends on heater wattage and usage duration. Outdoor infrared heaters are generally more energy-efficient and cost-effective to run compared to gas-powered ones. Estimated costs for electric infrared heaters typically range from £0.08 to £0.24 per hour, while gas-powered heaters may cost between £0.40 to £1.20 per hour. Refer to the manufacturer's specifications for your specific model and consult your local utility provider for accurate cost estimates.

How energy efficient are outdoor infrared heaters for gardens?

Outdoor infrared heaters are energy efficient due to their direct and focused radiant heat emission. They use electromagnetic waves to directly heat objects and people in their line of sight, minimising heat loss. Adjustable heat settings using smart thermostats with timers allow for precise control over energy consumption. Overall, outdoor infrared heaters provide efficient and targeted heating, conserving energy and reducing costs.

I bought this infrared panel heater from this company to heat a small office in my shop. Their website was easy to use and gave useful information to choose the correct wattage for my space. The order arrive quickly. It was easy to attach to the wall and only needed to be plugged into a wall socket. It has been working well and I am very pleased with it. I would order from this company again.

Already bought 2 infrared panels from this company. Both times service was great an all went smoothly. The panels work great and although I was sceptical about its perm once before buying it, after installing it, it works great and I went to buy a second one. Very easy to install and great value for money. Very sleek and thin as well. Thank you

We have a 1900s terraced house with a rear "lean to" designed kitchen with a chimney and open fire. We have had a variety of coal fires and back burner boilers, some with a gas fire on the front. The chimney was always a problem due to a poor design of the kitchen chimney and its position near the main house roof. Finally we opted for a modern wall mounted gas boiler which vented through the kitchen wall. The options for heating the kitchen itself were an extension to the main radiator system or electric heaters. Like all fitted kitchens floor space was a problem. We decided to try an IR panel mounted on the ceiling and controlled through a simple socket plug-in thermostat with the intention of adding another if successful. It worked perfectly and so far we have not needed another. Choosing, buying and delivery was painless. No problems at all - thoroughly recommended.
