Appartment in Girvan, Scotland.

For two flats, with the intention of renting these out, I bought four 1000Kw heaters and one 800 W heater with four manual programmable thermostats. This followed research into the most economical forms of electric heating to run, with the idea of a happy tenant likely to stay there longer and look after the place better.

Those from “The Infrared Heater Company” were the lowest priced ones I found, and they came with free next day delivery.

Firstly, in trying to heat one room, as an example, where regular heating requirement was quoted as being between 3kw and over 5kw, depending on which company advised on this, with infrared heating, this came up as under 1.4 kw. As it is a big room, I bought two 1 kW heaters to make sure it was well heated. They were only around £20 each more expensive than two 800W ones, the next most likely I’d have bought. The other rooms were all heated with 1 kw heaters, and a single 800 W heater.


 

While I could possibly have installed them myself, I opted to get an electrician to install them for professionalism and speed – took ten hours to install five heaters with four thermostats in four rooms.

Once installed, I found them to be effective at heating the rooms within a minute or two, possibly a wee bit longer for the far corners but nothing concerning.

But to come to the best part - the feel of the infrared radiance on the skin and muscles felt to me, really great - akin to sitting in direct sunlight, without concerns about sunburn or similar; I found skin and muscle to feel far more comfortable and relaxing than regular air heating. All the good parts maybe of sitting on a sunbed without worries about skin complaints

In all, they are very effective heaters, they feel great and in “The Infrared Heater Company”, possibly the cheapest on the market.
