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 Sheffield, Infrared Heat Panels provide many other benefits.
When purchasing an Infrared Panel heater for City of Sheffield, 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.
Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. With some of its southern suburbs annexed from Derbyshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base. The population of the City of Sheffield is 563,749 (mid-2014 est.) and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up the Core Cities Group. Sheffield is the third largest English district by population. The metropolitan population of Sheffield is 1,569,000 
During the 19th century, Sheffield gained an international reputation for steel production. Many innovations were developed locally, including crucible and stainless steel, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population in the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1843, becoming the City of Sheffield in 1893. International competition in iron and steel caused a decline in traditional local industries in the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with the collapse of coal mining in the area.
The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment in Sheffield along with other British cities. Sheffield’s gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £9.2 billion in 2007. The economy has experienced steady growth averaging around 5% annually, greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber.
The city is located within the valleys of the River Don and its four tributaries, the Loxley, the Porter Brook, the Rivelin, and the Sheaf. 61% of Sheffield’s entire area is green space, and a third of the city lies within the Peak District national park. There are more than 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city, and an estimated 2 million trees, giving Sheffield the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe. The city has a long sporting heritage, and is home to the world’s oldest football club.
