With respect to new buildings or renovated houses, the heating demand is very low. When a single-family house is built today, it requires a heating load of no more than 3 kilowatts, just a little more than a hot plate. The question is legitimate whether such low requirements really demand elaborate heat pump systems or biomass systems.
Infrared heaters score big because no complicated construction work and drilling, no chimney, no spaces for heating material and no maintenance expenses are necessary. This saves a lot of time and investment costs. The flat infrared panels are simply installed on the wall or ceiling – easy, fast, beautiful and affordable.
Heating systems of the future must meet the criteria of sustainability. Technologies have changed rapidly over the last few years. The insider tip of yesterday is obsolete today. Infrared heating is the ideal solution. Flexibility and adaptability to the construction technology, ideal values of energy efficiency. With almost 90% green electricity and a maximum of renewable energy, infrared is the heating of the future in Austria..
Infrared heaters are powered by electricity. Electricity is a clean form of energy that can be easily generated in your own country or, with solar panels, even at home. The use of electricity from the wall socket is also ecologically top-notch. The current report on the origin of the electricity, 2015, by E-Control describes the origin of the electricity and delivers sensational figures: Share of renewables in Austria: 89.10%.
The thermal radiation emitted by the ceramic tiles of a tile stove gives us a very pleasant feeling. Even in old, drafty houses, we are comfortably warm since radiant heat is particularly effective. This means that you can enjoy the pleasant radiant heat generated by the infrared heater with less energy than the heat from air heating. With real infrared heaters, the room temperature can be reduced without you feeling it cooler – saving energy and heating costs.
In addition, the walls are heated, which counteracts the formation of mould. The drier walls ensure a higher insulation value, which further reduces energy consumption.
If you heat with infrared, you consume energy only when the heat is required. There are no losses owing to heat being stored unnecessarily (as in the case of underfloor heating, for instance). The precise, need-based temperature control of the infrared heater makes this system an energy saver.
Burning fuel is a thing of the past, the word today is comfort! With the heating system of the future, you will have more time for the important things in life. No appointments with service technicians, no maintenance, no scheduling of heating material deliveries, no waiting for the chimney sweep, no burning of fuel or doing sweaty work to chop firewood.
A cold flat produces discomfort. We heat, so we feel comfortable at home in cold weather, have it nice and warm and stay healthy.
Conventional heaters heat the air first before we feel any of the heat. In doing so, they stir up dust and pollen, to which the human body is then exposed. High-quality infrared panels heat do not heat up the air for the most part but, instead, they heat up room shell, surfaces and people themselves. Pleasant radiant acts all around and gives us cosy comfort just like an old tiled stove.
Think of your future and your health. In times in which people have learned to appreciate comfort even more, in old age or with health problems, easy heating with infrared is worth a mint.
