Zoo Heating

It’s not just us humans who need sufficient temperatures to get comfy – animals need comfort too! The main priority for zoo managers is to keep the enclosed animals safe, fed and within a space that closely imitates their natural habitat, and this includes keeping the habitat at an appropriate temperature. For animals that require a warm environment, failure to provide this can cause distress for the animal, impede mating habits and risk their wellbeing. Many traditional heaters have been inadequate in the past, as they cause enclosures to become dry and stuffy with the sheer amount of warm air being produced. They are also expensive and waste high amounts of energy. With the amount of enclosures within typical zoos, heating for each closure quicky adds up, meaning gas bills are eating up zoo funding, rather than the important stuff – the animals!

Heating solutions need to be reasonably priced, energy efficient and able to heat powerfully at a high mount (so that animals are unable to tamper with the systems). The heaters installed must also be low maintenance, so that staff are not required to enter dangerous enclosures often. Luckily, infrared heating is the answer to these requirements. With a no-maintenance system and the ability to mount on ceilings and walls, infrared heating is the most practical solution. Furthermore, infrared heating is one of the most cheapest and energy saving systems on the market. By heating objects and beings rather than the air, the system using a fraction of the energy needed for convection heaters, meaning gas bills are heavily reduced in the meantime.

The benefit of using infrared heating in zoos

  • Infrared heating can cut down heating bills by up to 80%, meaning more money to spend on the important things – the animals.
  • Can be mounted on walls, ceilings, under surfaces and under floors, saving space and keeping the system out of reach.
  • Easy to install and maintenance free – less dangerous labour for staff
  • Sleek and compact design, so that your heating can be incorporated directly into the enclosure. This means that the systems will not disrupt the imitation of a natural habitat.
  • Heaters can be turned off and on as needed, meaning energy and money is not wasted when certain enclosures are not occupied.
  • Infrared heaters do not heat up the air, and are therefore not hindered by the outdoors. Therefore, animals, staff and visitors to the zoo will be comfortable even on those chillier days. This also means that zoos can create more revenue with ticket sales, due to the ability to keep visitors warm and comfortable all year round.

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.
