Infrared heating as additional heating

Infrared heating as with heating

Are you looking for a way to reduce your heating costs? More and more often there is talk about setting a lower temperature of the central heating. As a result, it gets colder in the house. When you think of heating, you may not immediately think of infrared, but with infrared heating as additional heating you can heat more energy-efficiently and still keep the temperature in the house nice and pleasant.

Infrared as energy efficient when heated

Turning on an extra heating in the house does not sound so energy efficient at first. Yet that is the case. The advantage of heating with infrared is twofold. You can actually turn down the thermostat of your central heating. This therefore works less often, which reduces your consumption. You can absorb the temperature difference with infrared heating. Infrared is known to be an economical way of heating. Because the heat is directed at the people or objects in the room and does not heat up the air in the room, a pleasant temperature is reached faster with infrared. You also do not set the infrared auxiliary heating to a high temperature. You turn off the heating when the desired temperature is reached.

When do you use infrared heating as with heating?

You can use infrared heating as additional heating if you want to heat your home more energy efficiently. This solution is very suitable for houses that are less well insulated. Thanks to the high-quality insulation, new-build houses can be heated with infrared  . Infrared is actually suitable for all rooms in the house where you need heat. That does not only have to be additional heating in the living room. It can also be in the bedroom, bathroom or the children's room. You use it as a supplement to the existing heating system. Do you not have a radiator in a room, for example in the bathroom or the utility room? Then infrared heating as additional heating is also a good solution for these rooms.

Where do you place when heating with infrared?

Chances are that you already have a radiator for central heating on your walls. As a result, there is no room for another heating element. However, it is not necessary to attach the energy-efficient auxiliary heating to the wall. For optimal operation, it is even better to attach the additional heating to the ceiling. The ideal height is between two and three meters. The heat emitted by the infrared heater has the best range in this way. The infrared panels as additional heating can be hung on the ceiling with a chain or the included brackets. It is also possible to integrate the infrared panel into the ceiling as additional heating. That of course depends on the type of ceiling you have. Are you going to renovate and are you considering a suspended ceiling? Then you can take into account the installation of the energy-efficient additional heating during the renovation.

The advantages of infrared as with heating

In addition to the energy-efficient aspect of this form of additional heating, there are other advantages. Infrared as additional heating, for example, is the best additional heating for rooms such as the living room and the like, because you immediately experience heat as soon as you turn on the additional heating. This means that you only have to turn on this additional heating if you need it. As a result, you do not have to take into account in advance how the temperature will develop in the house during the course of the day.

Another advantage of infrared heating is that it does not move air. Also in, for example, the bedroom you can use an infrared panel as additional heating because no dust particles are moved. In addition, it works silently. When purchasing an infrared panel, you have the choice of a panel that gives a warm, red glow, or a panel that does not give off color. Both types give off the same heat, you decide what you prefer.

What to look for when buying infrared in heating

Do you want to buy infrared with heating? Then it is a good idea to check in advance how much wattage the infrared auxiliary heating should have. This depends, among other things, on the insulation value of the home. The surface of the room where the infrared panels will be hung as additional heating is also important. With little insulation you need a higher wattage, for example 105 Watt/m² with two exterior walls. If you have normal insulation, 85 Watt/m² should suffice.
