Aircraft Hangar Heating

Whether it be military, civil aviation or maintenance hangars, all are infamously hard to heat. Substantial amounts of energy resources are expended to provide heat and comfort in these invariably large interior spaces, which are only growing with the building of ever larger aircrafts. Not only are these spaces hard to heat due to their sheer size, but they also contain vast volumes of air prone to high change rates and air infiltration as a result of the wide roller doors opening and closing.

In order to take steps towards a more cost effective and energy efficient space, a specialised heating system is crucial. Advancements in heating technology are improving the conditions and costs of running aircraft hangars. Infrared heating solutions provide a number of benefits compared to more traditional heating systems.

Infrared heating technology is the closest heating system to natural sunlight, using invisible light waves to produce concentrated beams of warm light, instantly heating the surface of anything in its path.

Benefits of using infrared heating in aircraft hangars

  • Infrared short-wave technology allows zone control and varying operation times around the hangar, permitting less heat to escape when the roller doors are opening and closing.
  • Heating is instant, unlike other more traditional heating sources that use convection currents to warm the air up of the whole room. This feature also improves the recovery time of the temperature after the doors are closed again.
  • The heaters can be mounted up to 30m high on walls or the ceilings to heat specific areas, preventing energy wastage.
  • Ensures all the people in the hangar are comfortably warm. Infrared light warms objects and surfaces, increasing the mean temperature and reducing worker’s body heat loss to surroundings.
  • The heat, that mimics that of the sun, provides an enjoyable work environment, keeping floors, surfaces and tools all warm. In turn increasing productivity of the workers.
  • Easy and fast to install.
  • Saves costs in a number of places throughout the hangar, such as reduced labour costs and less regular maintenance checks.

I purchased a wall mounted infrared panel for my conservatory - it has worked very well in keeping the area comfortably warm even during the coldest weather. Glenn Nash

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.

A big thank you for the wonderful panel. I was able to measure the area needed and select the correct sized panel, and yes it heats well and very little added costs to my electricity bill each month. I will be buying a couple more for other rooms.

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 find the 350 watt FIR heater ideal when sitting at a desk or in a comfy chair – a gentle heat which keeps you warm in a cold room. You can run it for hours and only use a unit or two of electricity.’ Andrew King

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.
