Sports Hall Heating

As one of the biggest spaces within your typical schools, leisure centres and universities, sports halls are notoriously difficult to heat, due to their large volume of air. Although these spaces are often kept to a slightly lower temperature to avoid overheating users during activity, they still need to be kept to a comfortable temperature, especially for spectators. These are often multi-use rooms; in which case a warm temperature is definitely needed to allow users to enjoy themselves. Sports halls are used intermittently and at irregular time intervals, meaning that efficient energy usage becomes difficult. With this in mind, these spaces require a flexible and sufficient heating system that does not waste energy or produce condensation (we don’t want any slippery floors).

With traditional heating, it is often found that energy (and therefore money) is wasted, due to the high ceilings of the room, which air reaches, but most people don’t (unless you’re André the Giant, maybe). With infrared heating, however, it is not the air that is heated, but objects and people. Infrared heaters that are placed at an appropriate height will heat the area of the space that is actually used. This is also beneficial for the avoidance of condensation; with infrared heat, the relative humidity in the air remains low, meaning condensation does not occur when the air meets warm surfaces. There’ll be no athletes slipping on our watch! There are many more benefits of infrared heating:

Benefits of infrared heating in sports halls

  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Infrared heating panels can cut down heating bills by up to 80%.
  • Can be installed in strategic places in order to keep certain areas of the space warm, such as spectator seating.
  • Underfloor heating can be installed to produce comfortable heat from the ground up.
  • Heaters can be turned off and on as needed, meaning unused areas of the space are not wasting energy and money.
  • Infrared heating is much more energy efficient and eco-friendly than traditional heating methods.
  • Unlike traditional heating that create stuffy and unpleasant conditions, infrared heaters produce a fresh, comfortable atmosphere.
  • Mimics natural sunlight, creating the feeling of playing sports in the summer heat.
  • Instant heat, so no waiting around in the chill!
  • Compact and attractive for non-disruptive appearance

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.
