Sometimes referred to as space heaters, or IR heaters, these portable electric infrared heaters are ideal for use where a central heating system is insufficient or you need to warm an area that is not otherwise heated. For large open work areas, where work stations might be far from any radiators, this heater can be placed to provide warmth exactly where it is needed rather than trying to heat the entire room, potentially saving on utility bills. It can also be used in marquees or large conservatory areas that are typically difficult to heat in cold conditions.

How do radiant heaters work?

Radiant heaters are a highly efficient means of providing personal heating. Unlike other heaters, they do not heat the air but use infra-red heat to warm bodies or objects within the radiant beam, meaning little energy is wasted.
