Our product finder will guide you to the right radiant heater for your project.
Which infrared patio heater is the right one?
Infrared paito heaters have a suitable design for almost every conceivable installation position. The quickest way to set up an infrared patio heater is to use it as a tabletop or free-standing radiant heater, which can simply be positioned at the desired location. A stable base or pedestal provides the necessary stability. Connection to the mains is very simple via a power cable with plug to a conventional socket.
Special ceiling or wall heaters are suitable for permanent installation, for example above the dining table or a seating area. Depending on the model, these are permanently mounted on the wall or ceiling with the enclosed brackets or suspended from above with chains. Often, these models also have a matching remote control or even a WLAN connection for control via a smartphone app. The heating power of the infrared radiators can usually be adjusted to individual needs in several stages.
The so-called parasol heaters have a particularly sophisticated design. As the name suggests, they are attached directly to the frame of a parasol. For an even and extensive heat distribution, these heaters often consist of three or more heating elements. A protective device ensures that the parasol heater can only be switched on when it is unfolded.
The planned installation location also plays an important role in selecting the right infrared patio heater. If the unit is to be installed in a protected outdoor area (e.g. roof overhang, terrace roofing, veranda, summer garden or pavilion), protection against splashing water according to protection class IP24 is sufficient. However, if the unit is to be mounted on an open area or a pergola without a fixed roof structure, at least protection class IP65 should be provided.
Infrared luminous heaters vs. infrared dark heaters
Infrared luminous heaters are preferably used in outdoor areas, as the generated infrared A radiation with a range of 0.78 to 1.4 µm is particularly short-waved and thus provides an immediate feeling of warmth. The generated heat penetrates up to 5mm deep into the tissue and thus conveys the feeling of direct sunlight. The short-wave radiation is also hardly susceptible to wind or draughts. Infrared luminous heaters from the premium segment usually have a carbon heating element, which also has a particularly low glare (visible light).
Infrared dark heaters, on the other hand, produce infrared C radiation with a wavelength of more than 3µm, which does not penetrate as deeply into the tissue. As a result, the sensation of warmth is somewhat delayed. Infrared dark heaters are more suitable for areas protected from the wind or indoors, but do not produce any visible light.
The infrared heaters are usually advertised with a specification of the heatable room size. Often, information such as "heated room size: 12-25m²" can be found on the devices or their description texts. This can already provide a fairly accurate classification of the heatable area. In open areas, however, the smaller information on the heatable surface should be taken into account, whereas in closed rooms, the larger information makes sense. Especially the radiant heaters from the premium segment, which often already have a remote control or can be controlled via a smartphone app, usually have several heating levels. In this way, the desired heat can be individually adapted to your own needs.
1500 Watt – 7 up to 15m²
2000 Watt – 10 up to 20m²
2500 Watt – 12 up to 25m²
3000 Watt – 18 up to 30m²
