Outdoor Seating Area Heating

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an individual sat in the sun with an ice-cold drink is most likely having a wonderful afternoon. Despite this, the sun must go down eventually, and it’s at that point that it can get uncomfortably chilly. If you’ve still got half a beverage left, what are you to do? That’s where outdoor heating comes in. These kinds of heating systems allow guests to stay outdoors way past sunset, and even sit outdoors during the colder months. The inclusion of outdoor seating areas, in any context, allow for extra capacity, meaning that outdoor heating is a worthwhile investment.

Many bars and restaurants choose to use space heaters to keep their guests warm. These use mid-infrared heat and can quickly become uncomfortable, burning the skin if they make close contact. Infrared heating panels, however, use far infrared heat, which is much more subtle as it heats people and objects from the core. With infrared heating panels, each outdoor table can be accompanied by a personalised heat source. There is also the option to use underfloor heating under concrete flags, meaning the heat will rise from above and saves space.

Benefits of infrared heating in outdoor seating areas

  • Can be mounted on walls, ceilings and placed under tables, saving space and meaning even seating far away from the building can be heated.
  • Easy to install and maintain.
  • Heaters can be turned off and on as needed, meaning unused seating will not waste energy and money.
  • Infrared heating panels can cut down heating bills by up to 80%.
  • Much softer heat that doesn’t burn and can keep you comfortable for long periods.
  • Compact and attractive for non-disruptive appearance
  • Instant heat, so no waiting around to warm up.

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 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.
