Invroheat Infra-Red Wall Heater – Cat Picture
Invroheat posters are based on clean, infrared nanotechnology and are extremely energy efficient. Infrared heat is invisible light with a large amount of energy. When the ‘light’ hits an object, the object heats up. The heat is immediately available. Preheating is not necessary. No energy is wasted heating the air.
99.6% of the electricity supplied is converted directly into heat. This will heat up the panel within 60 seconds and reach the maximum temperature within 2 minutes. For you, this means that when you walk into your cold room, you will experience comfortable infrared radiation within two minutes.
Different Types Of Heaters
Fan heaters work by fanning heated air into a room, they are usually small and portable and are suited for heating smaller rooms over a shorter time period.
Radiant bar heaters
Radiant heaters radiate heat using infrared rays and are more suited to directly heating people within a small area around them.
The number of bars indicates how powerful the heater will be and they run silently.
Oil or column heaters produce radiant heat by heating up the oil inside the columns, also like radiant bard heaters the number of columns suggests the power of the unit.
The advantage of oil heaters is that they produce heat even after being turned off, so perfect for those cold nights.
Convector heaters operate by drawing in cold air over a heating element before passing the air back into the room
These tend are effective to heat larger rooms over an extended period of time.
For more efficient heating, look out for convector heaters with a micathermic panel, which absorbs and releases warmth, offering the benefit of both convection and radiated heat.
Reverse cycle air conditioners
Reverse cycle air conditioners offer the option of colder air during the summer and heated air during the winter, and in addition to their dual-functions, can also be among the most energy-efficient heating option.
