Infrared heating in kitchen

Infrared heating in the kitchen

Do you have a separate kitchen and do you close the connecting door in the winter, so that the cold does not enter the living room from the kitchen? Then you probably need a lot of time to warm up the kitchen when you start cooking. Instead of turning on the radiator of the central heating in advance, you can easily solve this with electric infrared heating in the kitchen.

Simple and energy-efficient kitchen heating

Before your kitchen is warmed up by a central heating system, you are a good time further. You have virtually no benefit from the heat if you turn on the heating when you enter the kitchen. For this, the radiator must first be on for quite some time. Not only do you have to plan this well, it also costs extra heating costs. With an infrared panel for the kitchen, you no longer have to worry about that. Within a few minutes, after you have turned on the infrared kitchen heating, you will already feel a comfortable warmth.

Because the warming is fast, you save a lot of costs. In addition, an infrared heater in the kitchen consumes up to 60% less energy during use than the traditional heating in the kitchen. You will be cheaper in two ways with infrared heating in the kitchen.

What kind of infrared kitchen heating do you choose?

When choosing the type of kitchen infrared heating, you take a number of factors into account. First, the size of the kitchen. Do you have a smaller kitchen where there is no dining table and where you want to have immediate warmth at the times you cook? Then it is advisable to look at kitchen panels with infrared that have a high wattage. These immediately give the warmth you want at that moment.

If you are in the kitchen for a longer period of time and you want to have a constant, comfortable temperature, there is electric infrared heating in the kitchen with a low wattage. The secondary radiation emitted by these infrared panels ensures gradual heating of the kitchen. For example, the heat is absorbed by the furniture that is present in the kitchen and these release the heat again.
