An infrared heater in the old building
Experience with infrared heating in old buildings
Recognize the problem
A shirt, two thick sweaters, a voluminous scarf and three knitted socks from grandma? Layering may be the latest trend, but you don't have to follow every one, right? It's better to come up with a clever heating strategy to be able to spend a comfortably warm time in the old building even in winter. This is possible with infrared heating in old buildings.
Old buildings are often characterized by an extremely poor energy balance. Windows are poorly insulated, the thick walls store cold, entrance doors let the cool air into the living space - heating costs rise continuously. Another problem is that the thermostat is measured only by the temperatures in each room where it is fixed. If it is warm enough in this room, other rooms are not heated further. Small, dark rooms such as the bathroom or the toilet suffer the most from this. That's why it makes sense to heat individual rooms here. An infrared heater in the toilet, the heater as a ceiling heater in the old building and and - all possibilities to warm up an old building by infrared heating.

with infrared heaters - the ecological auxiliary heating
Whether an infrared heating auxiliary heating or else infrared heating as the main heating, infrared heating is a great way to heat old buildings ecologically. For example, you can install an infrared heater in the bathroom to meet the heat demand and not shiver after the shower. In cool vestibules, a mirror heater does well, and for infrared heating in the kitchen, a panel heater is particularly suitable. This will save you heating costs in the long term and you can easily regulate the heat as needed by means of a thermostat.
Redwell's electric-powered, low-electrosmog heaters, unlike convection heaters, heat the room envelope, objects and people. Since the heat is stored in the walls and it remains stored up to three times longer, the heat loss is low even when the room is ventilated. Mold problems can also be kept at bay thanks to heat waves, as walls stay dry.
If you exchange the night storage heater for an infrared heater, you can see that the power consumption of the infrared heater is significantly lower.
