Using an infrared heater as supplementary heating to your existing heating system can result in tremendous energy savings. Here’s why you should use them.
Why using an infrared heater as supplementary heating system?
Rooms such as attics, basements, hobby rooms or garages are often not equipped with heaters. Also, there is usually no piping to which radiators can be connected. Especially in older buildings, heating systems are often incorrectly dimensioned and so it can often feel cold even though the heating is running at full power. In those cases using infrared heating panels alongside your existing heating system is the perfect solution. Since a power connection is available in most rooms it is the easiest, fastest and most cost-effective way to heat such rooms. Sure, other electric heaters can also be quickly installed and might even have lower investment costs. But if you compare the consumption data of different electric heaters you will see that Sundirect infrared heating panels are much more energy-saving and worthwhile after only a short time. Not to mention that they create a comfortable atmosphere: infrared heating panels work silently, do not circulate hot air or dust and have an appealing look.
Huge savings with infrared panel heaters as transitional heating
During the transitional periods of autumn and spring, high temperature fluctuations are common. Conventional heating systems usually require a lot of time to warm up the whole house. Thus they use lots of energy even though you might just need to use the heater for a few days. One great strength of infrared heating panels is their short reaction time making them a fast and long-lasting solution. They do offer much more flexibility than traditional heating systems for example by just heating specific rooms or even just specific zones within one room.
Supplementary heating in the office will boost your employees’ performance
Sundirect heating panels are not only ideal for your home but also in offices.

You can create heating zones for each individually allowing every worker to adjust the temperature according to everyone’s individual needs.
