What is Infrared Heating and why is it the future?

We are opening our blog to professionals in our wider architectural, construction and interior design field to share guest posts on our website. Sharing the stories of other professionals and businesses brings an opportunity for us to celebrate excellence in our sector. We envisage the Ecclesall Design blog being a place where you can come to get inspired for what your home can become, and we are pleased to share the third of these exciting posts.

We are all looking for efficient and effective heating solutions for our homes. This can be achieved with the use of innovative Infrared Heating systems, which many people are not aware of. 

For this article, we collaborated with Michael Mitchell from the Infrared Group to explain this topic in detail: 


An Introduction To Infrared Heating:

When looking to implement perfection into every aspect of your future developments, choosing the right heating source is paramount. Infrared Group is proud to present a game-changing solution that will revolutionise the way you approach heating in your house extension and new build home projects. 

Infrared heating is a method of heating that utilises electromagnetic radiation in the form of infrared waves to transfer heat directly to objects and surfaces in a space, rather than heating the surrounding air. This approach differs from traditional convection heating, where warm air is circulated throughout a room to raise its overall temperature. Infrared heating works by emitting infrared waves from a heat source, such as an infrared panel, bulb, or emitter. These waves travel through the air and only release their energy when they come into contact with objects or surfaces. Upon contact, the energy from the infrared waves is absorbed by the object or surface, causing the molecules within those materials to vibrate and generate heat. This heat is then radiated back into the surrounding area, creating a comfortable and consistent warmth.


What Are The Advantages of Infrared Heating? 

  1. Energy Efficiency: Infrared heating directly warms surfaces and objects, requiring less energy to achieve the desired level of comfort compared to heating the entire volume of air in a room.
  2. Comfort: Infrared heaters provide consistent and even warmth, as they don’t rely on convection currents that can lead to temperature variations.
  3. Quick Heat: Infrared heaters offer almost instant heat, as they don’t need to warm up the air in a room before you start feeling the warmth.
  4. Zonal Heating: Infrared heaters can be strategically placed to provide heat exactly where it’s needed, allowing for zonal heating and potentially reducing overall energy consumption.
  5. Improved Air Quality: Since infrared heating doesn’t rely on air circulation, it doesn’t distribute dust and allergens around the room as much as traditional convection heating systems.
  6. Design Flexibility: Infrared heaters come in various forms, which can be integrated into different architectural and interior design styles.
  7. Reduced Heat Loss: Infrared heating minimises heat loss through walls and ceilings, as the heat is absorbed directly by surfaces.

Infrared heating is an innovative approach to warming indoor spaces that offers energy efficiency, comfort, and design flexibility. Its ability to directly heat objects and surfaces makes it a compelling option for both residential and commercial applications, contributing to a more efficient and comfortable living and working environment.
