Modern infrared heaters create pleasant radiant heat at low cost. Consumers should be aware of proven quality. Frankfurt, January 11, 2012 – heating with electricity has the reputation to be harmful to the environment and expensive. For old night storage heaters this certainly applies to, as well as for “powerful” cheap heaters, as they are often offered in hardware stores or online stores.

Modern infrared heaters can be a viable alternative to other heating systems such as condensing boilers (oil, gas), solid fuel heaters (E.g.
pellet heating) or heat pump in many cases. This applies both in financial and ecological resources. In addition individual infrared heaters also as additional heating, E.g. for underutilized spaces are suitable or Holiday homes.

Another advantage is the lack of ongoing maintenance costs for regular inspections or the delicate stone sweeper. Last but not least infrared heating elements provide a very pleasant for the body heat of radiation, comparable with the warmth of the Sun. For many people with allergies and asthma this is kinder than the convection heat of traditional radiators. Modern infrared heaters in their efficiency significantly exceeded the old post storage heaters.
