What is infrared heating?

Infrared heaters work like the sun, radiating their heat instantly to the people or objects within their beam. It is the most effective way to warm people, as there is little energy loss to the wind and there is no warm up period.

Electric infrared is a more efficient heating source than a typical convective gas heater in outdoor or breezy environments. Gas heaters aim to heat up the air in the space – in an outdoor, exposed setting, much of that energy is lost due to wind. Electric Infrared heating is ideal for outdoor environments, from a restaurant patio to your backyard oasis.

What is the cost to operate infrared heaters?

Infrared heaters are economical to operate and can be less expensive than propane heating. It’s a simple calculation to find your operating cost. Take the wattage of your heater and multiply it by your local power rate, which can be found online or on your recent utility bill.

For example, if you have a 1500w (1.5kw) Heater, and your local rate is 15¢ /kwh, your hourly cost to operate is 22.5¢/hour. [1.5kw x 15¢/kwh = 22.5¢/hour]
Don’t forget that infrared is also far more efficient than conventional gas heating, so your delivered heat per unit is also much higher.
