With the onset of cold weather, there is no issue more relevant than the issue of maintaining heat in houses, apartments and offices. Year after year, all popularity records were beaten by reliable and comfortable oil coolers. But recently, they have been confidently replaced by wall-mounted infrared heaters, which, among other things, also differ in their unusual design. It is this type of climate technology that will be discussed in our review.
Wall-mounted infrared heaters for the home — the principle of operation
The operation of infrared heaters is based on the principle of the thermal action of infrared rays, which heat all objects that fall into the zone of their influence. Objects heated in this way give off heat to the environment, and the air in the entire room gradually heats up. Wall mounted infrared heaters can be used as a primary or secondary source of heat. They have gained particular popularity for heating individual parts of a room or open areas, as well as bathrooms, garages, workshops, etc.
Wall Mounted Electric Infrared Heaters
Electric infrared heaters are the most popular for home use. There are many models with different power values (from 0.3 to 6 kW), which allows you to choose a heater for rooms of various sizes. Along with ease of installation and low power consumption, such heaters attract consumers with a variety of design solutions. Particularly popular are infrared wall-mounted film heaters-pictures or panels.
Wall-mounted film infrared heater-picture
If you want to combine business with pleasure, then a film heater-picture or panel is exactly what you need. Ideally fitting into any interior, light and compact, up to a certain point it does not betray its direct purpose — to heat the room. But it copes with this task perfectly — it gives heat without burning oxygen and without drying the air. The weight of such a heater is less than 1 kg, and the protection class allows it to be used even in damp and damp rooms. Outwardly, it looks like a small (100x60 cm) mat-panel made of lavsan film, between the layers of which a flexible heating element is hidden.
Wall-mounted infrared heaters with thermostat
The principle of operation of infrared heaters makes it possible to regulate the heating temperature depending on the data provided by the air temperature sensor. Due to the installation features, wall models of infrared heaters are not equipped with a built-in thermostat, but users have the opportunity to purchase it separately. Depending on the needs of users, remote thermostats are equipped with many additional functions: timer, programmer, switch and remote control. The determining factor when choosing a remote thermostat is the maximum allowable load, expressed in current strength.
Energy-saving wall-mounted infrared heaters
Speaking about wall-mounted infrared heaters, it is impossible not to note such a parameter as the level of energy saving. Compared to oil counterparts, wall-mounted infrared heaters consume 20–30% less electricity. The directional action of such heaters allows you to quickly bring the temperature to a comfortable level in a single part of the room, without warming up the entire house or office. By leaving the room, the heating level can be lowered, which also saves on electricity bills.
