A guide to how radiant electric panel heaters work.
Radiant heaters emit electromagnetic radiation which is due to the heat of the emitting body.
Radiant heaters warm the surrounding area by warming the objects, not just by circulating warm air.
The benefits of radiant heaters are as follows:
·The heat is unaffected by wind and draughts.
·The heat is uniform and heats the whole room as oppose to the ceiling down as with convectors.
·There is no effect on humidity levels. Air quality is unaffected as a whole.
·Radiant heaters are suitable for use in poorly insulated buildings and in areas such as conservatories with large glass exposure.
