This might look cold, but it definitely won’t feel it! That’s right, although the 595x1195 Ice Caps NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 700W has a chilly looking image filled with snow, it’s also an infrared heater. IR heating gives you many different advantages over other types of heater, including central heating.
This panel measures 595mm by 1195mm in size, with a 700W power output – this means it can warm an area that’s around 11-12m2. It measures just 22mm in depth, meaning it can fit rather snugly against the wall. It comes with an IP54 rating, meaning it’s guarded against accidental splashes of water.
The panel’s surface is constructed from solid, stylish FIR Coating, meaning it’s attractive and strong. It can reach a maximum surface temperature of roughly 75-95˚C, which is slightly warmer than a typical radiator. This wouldn’t be an issue, however, as it can be installed much higher up your wall than other types of heater can be, saving you accidental burns, and space in your room.
Infrared heating is extremely efficient, as it dissipates its heat much differently to how a conventional radiator does. In fact, an infrared heater can actually help you to save 60% on your heating bills! It does this by heating the actual objects in the room, rather than just the air around the room. The infrared beams that it produces bounce off of the objects in the room, leaving them warmed.
A conventional heater, however, heats the air, which rises to the ceiling, cools, and falls again, creating a convectional current. In turn, this can promote dust circulation, mould growth, and cold spots, which is why infrared heating is better for your health.
Infrared heating is also completely safe, as scary as it sounds. It uses the same kind of technology as your TV remote control, and the heat it delivers is the same as the sun’s. However, infrared heating does not generate any of the harmful UV radiation like the sun does.
Our infrared panels come with a brand new, highly advanced premium FIR Coating to help maximise the performance of your heater. It’s heat-resistant – meaning it can withstand temperatures up to 200oC without yellowing over time.
Not only that, but it will also help the carbon crystal heating element inside the panel distribute the IR waves better than ever before, thanks to a higher thermal efficiency, resulting in even more warmth in your home.
To top it all off, the coating is also far more secure than ever before, as it is fire resistant, ensuring your family and your home stay safe and warm.
Completely Lot20 compliant, our NXTGEN heaters are very efficient. They have a 39% efficiency rating out of a possible 40%. They have automated temperature control, so they will regulate your room’s temperature to one that you have selected. You also get a 7-day timer, so you can set separate timers for both the weekdays and weekend, to suit your schedule.
Adaptive start means that your panel will switch on before the time you choose, so that the room is at the specified temperature at the specified time. Plus, you get open window detection, which means that if your room drops by 1.5˚c in three minutes, the panel will switch off, as continuing to try and heat the room would be inefficient. Have a look at the NXTGEN manual for more information.
Don’t worry about trying to get your head around these different NXTGEN features, as the remote control makes everything simple. It comes with an electronic thermostat, which makes it a lot easier to work out exactly how much power you should supply to your home.
It’s easy to adjust the temperature of your panel, and also to set different timers for different days. You can set the adaptive start from the remote, too, so you know you’re not wasting any energy. The remote can be paired with multiple heaters, so you can control them as a group. Finally, with the ability to turn your heating on and off without leaving your chair, you can finally join the future of technology.
What does that little blue LED light in the corner of the panel do? That button is important to knowing exactly what your heater is doing at any given time. With so many different NXTGEN features, it could be difficult to know what’s going on. If the light is lit, then you can rest assured, as the heater is warming your room efficiently. If the light is not on, then it’s either switched off completely, or it’s maintaining your current temperature, and there’s no need to actually be actively heating.
This is another helpful feature that the NXTGEN heaters deliver that helps you keep on top of your heater, and on top of your heating bills.
A colder looking suggestion goes to the serene, chilly-looking 595x1195 Winter Drive NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 700W. It depicts an icy road, straight like an arrow, cutting between two lines of snowy trees.
All of our different image panels come with an incredible 2-year warranty, so your purchase will be completely covered. You can upgrade this to 5 years for free.
There’s also an amazing 14-day home trial period, in case you feel the need to return or exchange it. This is susceptible to a small 15% restocking fee, however, as the panel would need to be printed on.
All panels come with free delivery within 2-3 days, and next day delivery is available for £5.99.
You can return your panel if you are not happy with it within 14 days of receiving it.
To install your panel or bar heater, drill 4 holes into your wall as per the mounting template provided with your heater.
For panels, insert the wall plugs, followed by the screws, and use the cross-hair bolt insertion hole brackets on the back of the panel to mount it in place.
For bar heaters, use the provided screws to mount the brackets onto your wall, and then onto the back of the heater. Use the provided wing nuts to secure the wall brackets and heater brackets together at an angle best suited for your area.
Plug the heater into your mains, or get a qualified electrician to hardwire it for you.
Infrared heaters use up to 60% less energy than electric convection heaters, because they warm up objects rather than the air.
As they have no moving parts, they require zero maintenance.
At just 22mm thick, and best installed at head height, they can save massive amounts of space, allowing you to use your entire floor space.
Our infrared panels are far better looking than conventional radiators, giving your home a more modern look.
Once they have reached the end of their huge 100,000 hour lifespan, they almost fully recyclable, further helping the environment even after they’re no longer fit for use.
