How do you know the infrared heater you're thinking of buying is the best infrared heater?
In the world of efficiency it seems that sometimes the most obvious things are overlooked.
In the world of convection heating sometimes the most obvious things are not possible.
Enter infrared heating.
"Turn those lights off!'
Do you sound like your parents used to? Maybe there's wisdom in those words echoing down the years.
Maybe you've got cash to throw around and you don't care about wasting money on energy. Good for you buster.
What is Infrared Heat?
Infrared or IR is a form of electromagnetic radiation with a lower frequency than visible light. It is completely safe (in fact it’s perfect for us). We experience it everyday, whether that's from direct sunlight or the warmth we feel from a surface.
Efficient Electric Home Under Construction
During the Grand Designs show at the NEC in 2019 we were discussing our in ceiling Infrared Heating mats with a family on our stand. Soon after they presented us plans and asked us to calculate the heating requirements for their own new Grand Design build.
Efficient Electric Homes Reducing CO2
One of Jigsaw's main goals is to reduce the amount of pollution and wasted energy produced by our homes. We are working towards zero CO2, zero waste, high-efficiency heating inline with The Future Home Standards, 2019
Here’s Why We Decided We Needed to Manufacture Our Own Infrared Heaters
We’re experts in Infrared Heating. We have been involved in the development of infrared heating since the early days.
It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but, but.... Hands up who's in love with their ugly radiators?
Yeah, that's right, the ugly white box strapped to your wall. Uh huh, the ones that get in the way of where you want to put your furniture. Those butt ugly radiators that make a lot of people sneeze...
We've been brought up on convection heating and we've been conditioned that electric heating (all electric heating) is bad and expensive. It's not.
Convection heat and infrared heat are different beasts. It's important to understand the difference. Click here to brush up on What is the difference between convection and infrared heat?
