Infrared Heaters for Conservatories

Infrared Heaters for Conservatories.

Conservatory heating has traditionally been difficult due to the large open space, combined with the poor insulation properties of all the glass.

Condensation often forms in conservatories as a result of heating the air but leaving walls and furniture cold. This causes mould and decoration problems.

Infrared provides an effective conservatory heating solution because it is easy to install, efficient to run and has zero maintenance. Far Infrared warms the materials in the conservatory that then slowly give out there warmth to the air. This maintains a consistent temperature from the floor to the ceiling you could say that this a 360 degree warmth..

Effects on plants and pets.

For plants this a natural heat like that of the sun and thus encourages natural healthy plant growth with out the dry burning effect of fan heaters drying plants out. Animals also enjoy this natural heat with cats and dogs curling up to sleep under them.

With Infrared you can use your conservatory all year, even during the coldest months.. Our Far Infrared heaters for conservatories are easy to mount from the walls or ceilings & help eliminate damp and mould.

How to calculate the heater you require?.

It needs more power than an internal insulated room of the same dimensions of course.

As mentioned above due to the nature of the construction of Conservatories (even modern ones) you need to reduce the square meterage heated by 30%. Meaning, that normally 50W infra red heats about 1 m2  in this calculation it would heat  0.7m2.

Positioning.

This is very important there are two ideal positions.

Hanging on chains in the centre of the room allowing a wide spread of rays across the whole area. Alternatively, the Lux or Thermoglass allow you to use the solid back wall of the house to mount the panel whilst, the brackets allow to to angle the heater down to the floor keeping the warmth in the conservatory.

A Common mistake.

A certain percentage of infra red goes through glass so, you do not want to face the panels toward the garden rather, to pour the infra red into the furniture, floor and solid walls.
