Whether or not an infrared heater will save you money greatly depends on the choice that you make.
First of all, you will need to ensure that you purchase a heater that is large enough to heat the largest room that you will require it for. You should also ensure that it would not be excessively large for the smallest room that you’ll need it for. Having a heater that is insufficient will mean that you may never feel the complete benefit of having the heater on, which could be a waste of energy. A heater that is too large for the room, on the other hand, may use an excessive amount of energy that is not actually needed, resulting in the room becoming too hot too quickly.
Having an infrared heater is great for saving energy, as the infrared waves that are used to warm the atmosphere do not rely on convection currents like other heaters do. When other heaters warm large quantities of air, the warm air then rises and circulates around the room, potentially escaping through air ventilation and open doors and windows. Infrared warms up objects and people rather than the air, meaning that the warmth can’t simply escape out of the window. This can save you up to 50% on energy bills.
You must remember that an infrared heater is intended to be used on its own so that you don’t have to turn on your home’s central heating system. If you use the infrared heater along with your central heating system, you may not notice much of a difference in your energy bills.
