A bathroom mirror that bathes you in gentle warmth while you brush your teeth? A radiant ceiling that warms your skin when you get out of the shower? An ultra-flat wall panel that quickly brings comfort to the room where you work? Here are the services you can expect from infrared radiant panels.
Infrared heaters, which have been on the market for several years, can be interesting from a comfort point of view. However, heating with electricity can quickly increase your bill.
Unlike conventional radiators, which transfer their heat into the room by heating the ambient air (convection principle), infrared heating heats bodies and objects in its vicinity in a targeted manner by means of radiation.
It converts electricity into infrared waves.
These panels can also add comfort for a limited period of time, in a few places in the house, or be used in "unheatable" situations to heat a specific area, on an occasional basis: outdoor patio, large workshop, room with very high ceilings, etc.
As an auxiliary heating system, infrared heating has certain advantages over traditional electric heating.
Count on approximately € 500 VAT excl. at purchase for an 800 W panel, not installed. The cost of use obviously depends on how many infrared panels you have and how often you use them.
Here you will find a method to calculate the consumption based on the power of your panels.
