What does infrared heating feel like? Well, at a recent exhibition visitors onto our stand were amazed at how much heat was coming off such a small panel and at only 300 watts ( most people asked how many kilowatts the heater used because their own storage heater was 3KW. That is 3000 watts!)
Exhibition halls are usually vast and very cold! However standing talking to us, visitors could really feel the nice gentle heat coming off the panel, warmth they could feel directly on them, they were all surprised because of course a traditional electric heater would have blown hot air out which would have instantly disappeared in the vast building.
The warmth we feel from the sun is natural infrared, it warms your face on a cold Spring day. We know infrared from the sun warms the sand on the beach or stone walls of the house, these objects then give off heat to warm the air, the air stays warm because it is surrounded by warm things. This same principle is used in our homes, we feel warmth from the panel directly on us and it is warming the thermal mass of the room to create a cosy feel to the room. The specific wavelength of infrared used in our heating panels is chosen to be most comfortable to the human body.
I think all the visitors to our stand agreed, infrared warmth feels nice, and that is not a comment many of us would make about our central heating!

Multiheat proudly announce that we are now able to supply top quality outdoors heaters made in the UK. Manufactured by a leading infrared specialist company and worldwide exporter, our new range of outdoor heaters provide absolutely instant heat directly to the body, perfect for restaurants, cafes and gardens.

The shortwave heating emitter provides high intensity radiant heat that other types of heating appliances can not match. Shortwave or near infrared has an orange glow, the intense feeling of warmth travels through cold air and only turns to heat upon touching the human body. The air will not be warmed, making this type of heater the most cost effective for outdoor applications or cold buildings where people need to feel warm for a short period of time.

Most homeowners with solar panels only use about half of the energy they produce, the rest goes off to the grid, however, there are now many new energy efficient electrical products and battery storage solutions coming onto the market whereby that electricity can be stored for use later in the evening when demand is higher. For those on a Generation Tariff that means more free energy but also reduces carbon emmissions and helps protect our environment, so we should look to see how we can use more of this solar generated electrical energy.
New technology in the field of electric heating brings us very energy efficient heaters which use very little power, these neat panel heaters can be left on all day and evening drawing low wattage to gently warm one room or the whole house depending on your solar array. Infrared heating panels can be easily retro fitted to a room to run alongside the current central heating system or as a stand alone heating solution.
The large wall mirror electric heater is very popular being attractive and functional!
Now that Spring is on its way, many of us will consider turning off the main central heating, however, some warmth to individual rooms is still necessary, even through the summer months too.
An affordable electric heater in the form of a mirror is a simple way to make your home more comfortable whilst using that self generated electricity.
A 600 watt infrared heating panel will warm a room up to 12 square meters as the primary heat source, that could be your kitchen/ living area or a home office. Infrared works very differently to traditional storage heaters or wall panels which simply warm the air, infrared energy from the panel heater warms people and surfaces directly, once these are gently warmed they give off heat to warm the air, the air stays warm for longer. By warming the thermal mass of the room a more cosy and comfortable feeling is created at lower air temperatures. Further energy savings can be made with the addition of a programmable room thermostat. Heating panels come in a variety of wattages to suit needs or spare capacity and vary in design from plain white to stunning coloured glass and mirrors.
Now that the days are getting longer and solar generated electricity is increasing, solar panel owners should be aware of the new technology coming onto the market which harnesses this power for their own use rather than sending it back to the grid. An effective gentle electric heater combined with a battery pack can provide warmth to one room throughout the day and evening and are cost effective to retro install. An electric heater requires no maintenance or servicing and can be a valuable resource when the main central heating fails or is costing too much to run.
Have you ever experienced natural infrared warmth whilst on a ski trip?
Even when the air temperature is below zero and you are surrounded by snow, you can feel warm and even sit outside in just a t shirt when the sun is shining, why, because infrared energy from the sun travels through cold air and only turns to heat when it touches an object or person. So, once the clouds build up or the sun dips behind the mountain you soon realise how cold the air actually is! Infrared energy makes you feel warm regardless of the air temperature because it is soaked up by the body to warm you directly.
This infrared feeling of direct warmth can also be achieved from our heating panels – very gently, to make your home comfortable and cosy.
