Infrared is radiated heat: the feeling of warmth from the sun on your face; the heat from a coal fire, or a toaster. It is even the same form of heat emitted by your own body. It is the most basic form of heating known to man.
Infrared heats objects, which then radiate back and keep the environment warm around you. Radiant heat does not heat air – which holds little heat and rapidly disperses.
Future Energy Solutions Infrared Heating Panels have no moving parts, no pipework, and no liquids or gases flowing through them. The table below demonstrates the comparison running costs of a single 20m3 room for a six month heating season. The savings in energy and financial costs are substantially over 50% in heating, maintenance, repair and replacement compared to conventional heating.

Future Energy Infrared Heating Panels produce heat that is similar to the heat produced by the sun. The Infrared rays emitted are easily absorbed by the items in your home, which gently increases the temperature of their surroundings. As cool surfaces heat up, Infrared Heat Panels raise the ambient temperature of the room. Besides warming up your home in Bath, Infrared Heat Panels provide many other benefits.
When purchasing an Infrared Panel heater for City of Bath, safety is a main concern. The core temperature of Infrared Heat Panels never get as high as a conventional heater’s temperature. This means animals and children can touch the surface of an Infrared heater without being burned.
Nobody wants to be burdened with a bunch of maintenance tasks. Because Infrared Heat Panels have no moving parts, maintenance is almost non-existent. There are no motors to wear out, air filters to replace or boilers to maintain.
Infrared Heat Panels provide optimum heating temperature after 30 seconds. Fully customisable heating system: Create Zones in Your home for ultimate control.
When in noise-sensitive environments such as bedrooms or studies, finding a heater that doesn’t operate loudly is important. There are no moving parts or fan blades whirring on Infrared Heat Panels, therefore they deliver heat silently.
Infrared Heat Panels can make you comfortable indoors no matter what the temperature is outdoors. Also, Infrared Heat Panels aren’t affected by drafts or wind.
Instead of warming the air like other conventional heaters, Infrared Heat Panels heat objects directly in their paths. Heating the air wastes energy and the benefits of the heat aren’t felt immediately. The rays produced by Infrared Heat Panels penetrate and warm you beneath the skin. The Infrared rays radiate outward, heating all nearby objects, producing a widespread effect. This all happens within 30 seconds, with no need to wait for the heat to buildup.
The benefit of any space heater is zone heating. With an Infrared heater, heating only the parts of your home that you’re using at any given time is possible. When you aren’t heating your entire home, you’ll save money on your heating bill. Infrared Heat Panels can save you up to 30-70% on heating costs. Actual savings vary depending on insulation, ceiling height, type of construction and other factors.
This day in age, the earth’s resources must be used responsibly. Infrared Heat Panels operate without any carbon combustion, no toxic by-products of combustions, no open flame, and no fuel lines to leak. They add nothing to the air and take nothing away from the air, making them environmentally friendly.
Infrared Heating Panels use a substantially lower amount of energy than conventional heaters. Some Infrared Heating Panels can operate on as low as 300 watts of electricity and 800 watts is enough power to provide heating to a room. Also, there’s no need to turn on the heater in advance to pre-heat the room because heat is delivered instantly.
Unlike conventional heaters that draw moisture out of the air as a part of their heating process, Infrared Heating Panels don’t produce dry heat. This way you can avoid uncomfortable side effects such as itchy eyes and throat.
Bath is a cityin the ceremonial county of Somerset, England, known for its Roman-built baths. In 2011, the population was 88,859. Bath is in the valley of theRiver Avon, 97 miles (156 km) west of London and 11 miles (18 km) south-east of Bristol. The city became a World Heritage Site in 1987.
The city became a spa with the Latin name Aquae Sulis (“the waters of Sulis”) c. AD 60 when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon, although hot springs were known even before then. Bath Abbey was founded in the 7th century and became a religious centre; the building was rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries. In the 17th century, claims were made for the curative properties of water from the springs, and Bath became popular as a spa town in the Georgian era. Georgian architecture, crafted from Bath stone, includes the Royal Crescent, Circus,Pump Room and Assembly Rooms where Beau Nash presided over the city’s social life from 1705 until his death in 1761. Many of the streets and squares were laid out by John Wood, the Elder, and in the 18th century the city became fashionable and the population grew. Jane Austen lived in Bath in the early 19th century. Further building was undertaken in the 19th century and following the Bath Blitz in World War II.
The city has software, publishing and service-oriented industries. Theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues have helped to make it a major centre for tourism with more than one million staying visitors and 3.8 million day visitors to the city each year. There are several museums including the Museum of Bath Architecture, Victoria Art Gallery, Museum of East Asian Art, and the Holburne Museum. The city has two universities: the University of Bath and Bath Spa University, with Bath College providingfurther education. Sporting clubs include Bath Rugby and Bath City F.C.while TeamBath is the umbrella name for all of the University of Bath sports teams.
