Why Infrared Radiant Outdoor Heaters?
Why buy an infrared radiant heater?
An infrared radiant heater uses heat very similar to our sun. The silent technology will not disturb your environment and it is efficient and cost effective way of heating your outdoor space. Infrared technology does not use as much energy as LPG gas bottle heaters and you will get more heating from an infrared heater than you would from traditional heating options.
Infrared heat also does not create a stuffy feeling as most heaters do because the air is not being pushed around the area. The heat is distributed evenly. Infrared rays are not visible light. They are just under the colour red in the visible light spectrum. The heat that we feel on the earth is the infrared rays from the sun.
How are infrared radiant heaters different from other heaters?
Most heaters will heat ambient air usually by convection; which heats the air and circulates the warm air out into the outdoor space you’re heating. An infrared radiant heater transfers most of the heat through direct infrared radiation. You save money by immediately heating not the whole area but just you.
The infrared heat will penetrate the skin and warm you from beneath your skin and then radiates outward. Not only will the heater warm you, but then the infrared radiant heater will warm anyone near you because a portion of the heat will reflect off your skin.
What people are saying..
Heating for a outdoor area was critical, as we live close to the sea and as such needed a quality solution that would last. We looked at a number of major hardware chains that had imported heater models which were limited on warranty and very light on quality.
We contacted Kelray Heaters and were promptly provided a demonstration unit. It was apparent from the onset the quality and design was far beyond anything else we had looked at, and they are made in New Zealand!
We now have a Kelray I.25 heater covering our enclosed deck, the heater is excellent and it has turned our outdoor area into another room which we can use virtually all year round.
How large of an area can an infrared radiant heater heat?
Kelray heaters can heat up to 16 square meters in a small amount of time. The heat is easily directed to the space you would like it in a very precise beam.
As you are not heating all the air in the entire area electric infrared radiant heaters will heat the objects in the path of the beam then those object will reflect the heat right away, using less energy to heat up your outdoor space much faster. Infrared radiant heaters work great for instant heat on those chilly mornings or cold nights.
