Infrared panel - is it worth it?

The vision of rising home heating bills is not optimistic. This is why

alternative forms of heating such as infrared panels are becoming more and more popular

more popular. Is it worth investing in them? How does an infrared panel actually work?

What is an infrared panel?

An infrared panel is a device that converts electricity into

infrared radiation. It is invisible to the human eye while being

very good heat carrier.

Infrared heaters can be found in the form of bulbs, ceramic elements or

metal. Currently, the most common form is the heating panels

different types of rooms.

Operation of the infrared panel.

When taking electricity, the infrared panel starts to produce

solar-like radiation. Such radiation heats the air on

at the very end, first heating objects, walls or floor. This allows you to warm up

room using less energy than conventional forms of heating.

The air in such a heated place is much colder than it seems to us.

So does the sun on a winter day. We are quite warm in its light, however

when we move into the shade, we begin to feel the actual temperature. It's kind of

our body's heat deception.

It is worth noting that compared to the sun, infrared panels do not produce

UV radiation harmful to the body. They are a natural way of heating that

does not negatively affect the human body.

Advantages and disadvantages of infrared panels.

Like any heating system, heating with infrared panels has its own advantages

advantages and disadvantages. Let's take a look at some of them!

A classic radiator or heater works on the principle of convection. It is a constant movement of air

caused by its suction by the radiator. As a consequence of this movement cold

the air is heated and rises from floor to ceiling. She also riots with him

dust and allergens that can bother many people.

Infrared panels do not force air movement - they work on the principle

radiation. They are therefore ideal for allergy sufferers and people who are sensitive to clouds


In addition, this movement of air causes it to dry out significantly. It leads to

dryness of the mucous membranes of the nose and throat. The result of constant drying can be recurrent

upper respiratory tract infections. Of course, with infrared panels this problem

also disappears, because they do not significantly change the humidity of the air.


Infrared panels do not heat the air alone. This means significant savings

money and reducing heat loss in the room. Also in the case of rooms

very large size.

Heating with a traditional stove for wood, eco-pea coal or coal is the result

high air pollution in the natural environment. Switching to heating with

using electricity may seem like only the lesser evil, but infrared panels are

also energy efficient!

In the case of a well-calculated heating power of the panel, the bills for

home heating significantly decrease. This, of course, affects the home budget and of course

installation is also very important.

If we choose wall panels, all we need is a bit of time, a spirit level, a drill

and a few pegs. You don't need a specialist or a whole house renovation! Only

the thing worth spending some time on is choosing the size and number of panels you want

have at home.

How much does an infrared panel cost?

The price of infrared panels depends on the selected model and the size of the rooms,

what is it supposed to heat. However, compared to traditional heating methods, it is

low cost.

Is it finally worth buying infrared panels?

When comparing the costs of conventional heating and heating panels, they seem to be profitable

more panels. If we also take into account their price, speed of assembly or

effect on the movement of air in the house seems to be a really good option.
