Importance Of Keeping Your Home Warm

Not only is a warm home a happy home, but keeping your home cosy has proven physical and mental health benefits. The winter can be a dangerous time, particularly for those who are vulnerable. This is why it is essential to keep your home well-heated at all times.

This will be particularly easy to do with infrared. By heating the objects within the room with far-infrared waves, they will stay warm due to the thermal mass created. This allows the rooms and atmosphere to stay warmer for longer which is hard to do with traditional heat sources.

The NHS have stated that your home should be heated to at least 18°C, which can easily be managed with our NXTGen range. It is best to keep your home above this temperature to avoid illness and to aid productivity and mental health. A cold and dreary home has been known to decrease full mental functionality often worsening mental illness.

The same applies to physical illnesses too! The cold can often deplete your immune system, and staying warm can help to boost it back up. Better yet, infrared heating also has many health benefits. These include: increased blood flow, enhanced immune system and it also has the power to reduce inflammation.

Infrared Can Reduce Your Bills

As infrared heats the mass within the room, rather than the air, your heating will not be affected by draughts. This is a common problem with convection radiators as they heat air, meaning the heat is lost by these draughts, and even by open doors.

This often means your heating will need to be switched on for longer and on a higher temperature to compensate for this.

Without using the air as a heating medium, your room will manage to stay cosy should you use infrared. Don’t forget about the fact that IR is a directional heat source, meaning it will heat you and the objects within that room directly. This being said, you will feel the heat much quicker allowing you to turn it off much sooner. Overall, this in conjunction with the use of the remote or thermostat, can see you make fantastic savings of up to 60% on your bills.

To really amp up your savings, we recommend ensuring your room and home, is well insulated. This further boosts the amount you could save all while reducing long-term costs.

Stylish Heating That Lasts

Old-fashioned heaters are known to look unattractive and are especially space consuming. This can lead to poor interior choices with a lack of room for furniture.

This is another reason why infrared comes in handy. Stylish, discreet and attractive, our panels come in a range of options. Depending on your décor, you can go for a plain White IR Panel, a Mirrored Panel or even a Glass IR Heater. We then stock Image IR Panels with a huge selection to choose from.

To top it all off, you can even send in your own image and we will provide you with a high-quality Custom Print.

Being incredibly slim, they will fit snug to the wall just like a canvas on the wall. This will not take away from your décor, in fact, it will add a unique finish to it.

Our panels also have a predicted lifespan of up to 25 years, seeing them last for many years to come. This means that below-freezing winters will no longer turn your home into an uncomfortable icebox instead, they will ensure your home is warm at all times. With future winters predicted to worsen due to the climate emergency, we recommend converting your home as soon as possible. Don’t worry about potentially moving home either as our panels are completely portable, unlike traditional, built-in systems.
