Are infrared heating panels any good?

When you consider that 100% of the power an infrared panel draws from the wall is converted to heat, infrared panels are inherently more energy-efficient than other heating systems. Because infrared heat is contained by the objects in its path and isn’t lost to air currents, it is considered more energy-efficient.

Do infrared heaters get hot to the touch?

Infrared panels operate most effectively at surface temperatures of around 90 ˚C. The panels will be hot to the touch but you will not burn from simply brushing against the surface.

Can infrared heaters cause fires?

Because infrared heaters do not use fossil fuels such as kerosene or propane, these heaters don’t emit pollutants such as carbon monoxide, and will not cause fires and explo- sions due to a flammable fuel source.

What happens if you sit too close to an infrared heater for too long?
