Choosing the right number of panels and sizes
You’ll need less electricity to heat a space with infrared than ordinary electric radiators. But it’s not some magic solution that can heat a large space with a few watts! You do need to put in enough wattage to be warm (and position them with thought).
There's a simple calculation to work out how much far infrared power you need for a living space:
In meters - Length of room x width of room x height of room x30 and you have the number of watts needed.
Example: A living room of 4m x 3.5 with a ceiling height of 2.4m will need 1008 watts. That could be supplied by 3 x 600 x 600 (350 watts) which is total of 1050 watts. Or possibly 1 x 600 x 600 (350w) and 1 x 600 x 1000 (600w), with total of 950 watts.
For a conservatory x 50 as it is harder to heat. Check out our bar heaters as they are brilliant at quickly heating conservatories.
In feet - Length x width x height x 0.8 = watts needed
And for a conservatory, x 1.4 to calculate the higher wattage needed.
If you wish us to calculate, just email the dimensions and add a note about how well insulated the room is. We can also advise on positioning and panel control
Saw their 2.4kW bar heater at Ecobuild. The looks of it are perfect even though it's used in a garage. Purchased on the spot and delivered to me two days later. Perfect service with no problems. Easy to install and very flexible to use with multiple... read more

Trying Warm4less Far IR Heating was the best decision I have made for ages. We are currently renting a property. Its heating system is over 50 years old and terrible. I also have an outside office building that I heat with a 3kw fan convector. I want... read more
