Infrared Electric Bathroom Heater
Infrared electric heaters are a new, energy efficient and cost-effective way to heat your home. The ultra-thin panel means they’re unobtrusive in the room. It’s easy to find a space to install an infrared heater as they can be mounted horizontal, vertical, or even on the ceiling for a completely unnoticeable and minimalist installation.
Tailored for the bathroom, this model features a dual heating system. The panel is divided from top to bottom. The top is the room heating zone. The bottom is adapted for towel drying. The main impact of this is the top of the heater is warmer and provides more heat into the room. Then the bottom is cooler and safer if you touch the panel when adding or removing towels.
Infrared, a better heating experience
Infrared heating technology has many benefits. However, first it’s important to know why infrared is different to other heating methods.
The main difference from conventional heating systems is infrared heaters do not warm the air in the room. Whereas conventional electric heaters only heat the air, which can create an uncomfortable dry or stuffy feeling. Instead, Infrared electric heaters emit direct thermal radiation. This creates a more comfortable living environment. The feeling is like the heat you feel from the from the sun. As Infrared transfers heat to physical objects, the heat is stored for up to 3x as long compared to traditional heating methods which warm the air. Infrared electric heaters provide constant drying of the walls. Leaving very little chance for mould to grow. Also, there’s a reduction of dust circulating in the room, improving the air quality in the room.
ESCH, Efficient Heating Technology.
However, not all infrared heaters are created equal. The problem with the majority of infrared heaters is that they do not work as intended. The heating panels do not get hot enough to emit truly effective infrared waves. This means they are essentially just a hot plate on the wall. Not providing the true infrared effect.
ESHC technology is what sets Welltherm’s infrared heater’s apart from the rest. Most competitors panels have a maximum surface temperature around 90°C, whereas Welltherm’s is 107 °C. Resulting in a stronger and more effective infrared effect.
Welltherm’s research and development has lead to technological advancements, making their heaters some of the most energy efficient on the market. Welltherm’s use ESHC technology, to ensure intrinsic heating across the panel. With ESCH technology more than 70 % of the heater’s heating surface is covered by heating conductors. This results in excellent heat distribution and efficiency. For most other infrared products this value is between 6 % and 23 %. Basically, the larger the proportion of radiation of an infrared heating system, the more efficiently electrical energy will be turned into thermal heat.
For maximum quality and efficiency, the ESHC heating conductor’s geometry is made from highest-quality stainless steel. While reverse heating circuits reduce unwanted magnetic fields to a minimum. The heating elements front and back is surrounded by thermally resistant silicone insulation. The use of this leads to optimum heat transfer to the front of the infrared heater, with maximum safety. With an infrared heater, its important the heat is transferred into the front panel. Heat to the rear of the heater is simply waste. In order to reduce the loss of heat a thermally insulating mat is used to the rear of the panel.
Our Infrared electric radiators are controlled by a very neat and easy to use battery operated remote wireless room thermostat. Here you can set start/stop timer functions, up to 3 times every day and each day different if required. Once you have set the timing schedule you can then set the required room temperatures, ensuring you are using the radiator to your own requirements and as efficiently as possible. The wireless room control can wall mounted or sat on a mobile stand and can be locked to stop unwanted program changes.
Function, and Convenience
Welltherm are a German manufacture of infrared Heaters. With years of research and and development, they have managed to produce technology which makes their infrared electric heaters some of (if not the most) effective and efficient on the market. 100% made in Germany, manufactured to the highest quality standards and backed by a comprehensive 5 year guarantee.
This heater is IPx4 rated and therefore suitable for bathrooms in zone 2 and higher. Providing resistance against water splashes and condensation. Making it suitable for all rooms in the house.
Not only can you install the heater horizontal and upright, you can also mount the heater to the celling. The celling is best position distributing the infrared waves. As it removed obstacles which could block the heat. Additionally when mounted to the ceiling the heater is far out of touching distance. Removing the possibility of burning yourself on the heater’s hot surface.
