Infrared heaters winter garden
Why are infrared radiant heaters particularly suitable for winter gardens?
Infrared radiant heaters are the ideal choice for winter gardens for several compelling reasons. They provide an instant source of heat at the touch of a button, which means you can enjoy instant comfort, right when you need it. This proves to be extremely practical in winter gardens, where temperatures often fluctuate and the ability to adjust the heat as needed is a great advantage.
In addition, infrared heaters are characterized by the fact that they produce uniform heat throughout the targeted area. Unlike other types of heaters, which sometimes create uneven temperature zones, infrared heaters provide even heat distribution, creating a comfortable indoor environment.
They also provide the ability to adjust the heat output to suit individual preferences. This adjustability makes it possible to set the comfort level to the desired degree, whether it is a mild basic warmth or more intense heating on particularly cold days.
Another important advantage is the safety that infrared radiant heaters offer. Since they have no open flame or hot surfaces, there is no risk of fire. This is especially important in enclosed spaces such as conservatories, where safety a top priority. In conclusion, infrared radiant heaters are an excellent choice for outdoor as they offer instant heat, even heat distribution, adjustable heat levels and safety.
Advantages at a glance
Infrared heaters for winter gardens offer a number of advantages compared to other types of heating:
Quick heat: infrared heaters produce instant heat without long warm-up times. This makes them ideal for rapidly bringing the winter garden to a comfortable temperature.
Various models: Infrared radiators are available in a variety of models, including wall, floor, and ceiling versions. This allows you to choose the right model for your outdoor space and your specific needs.
Easy control: the operation of infrared heaters is extremely simple. You can use a remote control to operate them, or you can control them directly on the device itself, which ensures convenience and ease of use.
Easy installation: installation of infrared heaters is usually straightforward, especially thanks to the convenient brackets and installation instructions that come with them.
No fire hazard: Compared to traditional heating systems that use open flames or hot surfaces, infrared heaters do not pose a fire hazard. They selectively provide heat to without generating high temperatures on the heating elements themselves.
Low energy consumption due to direct irradiation: Infrared heaters work with direct irradiation of infrared heat, which leads to efficient energy consumption. This allows you to save energy and money because the heat is generated exactly where it is needed.
How do I choose the right heater?
Choosing the right infrared heater for your winter garden requires some consideration. Start by taking into account the size of your outdoor space. If it is a larger area, multiple infrared heaters may be required. A general rule of thumb recommends about 60 to 100 watts per square meter of space.
Another important consideration is the mounting option you choose. Decide whether you want to place the heater on the wall, ceiling, or floor, depending on your room design and preferences. Check if the radiator offers different heat levels to flexibly adjust the heat and save energy.
Safety features like overheat protection and automatic shut-off are just as crucial, especially in households with children or pets. These factors should all be considered in order to choose the best heating solution for your outdoor area.
Infrared heaters usually have certain safety features that ensure proper use. One important safety characteristic is the IP55 certification, which confirms that the device is protected from small dust particles and spraying water. This is especially important in humid environments or when the heater isused outdoors.
Another key safety characteristic is the spray-water protection. It ensures safe operation of the heater in the event of rain or accidental splashing when performing tasks such as watering flowers. This prevents potential electrical hazards. Infrared heaters are equipped with overheating protection, which automatically turns off the device when its operating temperature becomes too high. This feature prevents possible fire or damage.
The electricity consumption of an infrared heater depends on several factors, including the model variant and the number of watts. For example, if your infrared heaters have an output of 2000 watts (2 kW), they will consume 2000 watts, or 2 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per hour.
To calculate the actual electricity consumption in kWh, multiply the heater wattage (in kW) by the operating time (in hours). For example, if you use the 2000-watt infrared heater for 2 hours:
Power consumption (kWh) = power (kW) x operating time (h)
2 kW x 2 h = 4 kWh
In this case, the power consumption is 4 kWh. It is important to note that power consumption directly correlates with operating time. The longer the radiator is in operation, the more electricity is consumed.
What to consider during installation?
With practical brackets and a well thought-out design, the installation of infrared heaters in the winter garden is straightforward. When choosing a place for installation, several factors play a role. The most important question is what area in the winter garden should be heated?
Depending on your needs, an infrared heater can be mounted on the wall or, alternatively, a ceiling heater can be used to heat the winter garden. If you want to mount an infrared heater on the ceiling, you must make sure that the device is suitable for this purpose. When mounting a heater on a glass ceiling, make sure that the glass used is heat-resistant.
Detailed installation instructions for the infrared radiant heater in the conservatory are included in the user manual, as well as comprehensive information on the optimal use of the radiant heater outdoors.
