As energy cost rise, the market for infrared heating is increasing because of the efficiency it generates. High efficiency factors of the technology guarantee less energy consumption. 30-40% less compare to standard metal cable heating systems.
A typical radiant heated home can expects a 25% energy savings over a conventional forced air heated home. This savings can be attributed to several factors. The radiant warmth allows us to be comfortable at a lower air temperature, creates lower ceiling temperatures and works by warming objects directly.

Heating power capacity calculation

For an average room conditions in a European climate we can calculate 50 Watts per mē floor surface as a guideline. A 720 Watt panel is expected to consume less than 800kWh of energy per year to heat a space of 12mē very effectively 24 hours a day. Radiant heating system can balance existing heating systems in problematic areas at relative low cost and compensate for energy lost due to inherent inefficiencies of forced air heating systems. We can compare Infrared heaters to low energy light bulbs - more expensive to purchase, but inexpensive to operate and last longer.
