Halogen Heaters: An Alternative Heating Option

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Halogen heaters are becoming more popular, and with good reason! There are numerous different types of halogen heaters, each with their own pros and cons and uses.

Quartz halogen infrared heaters are frequently installed in buildings with high ceilings or that are very drafted or poorly insulated. They produce a short-wave infra-red wave of heat that makes it possible to use them where it is too expensive or too difficult to use standard heating systems. They are good because they can be used indoors or outdoors (if they are protected from precipitation), and they are inexpensive to use.

There are even "weatherproof" models available, in case you DO need to use them outdoors.

You can feel instant heat when they are switched on and bystanders are welcomed by a warm glow. This instant heat is due to the fact that halogen heaters are radiant heaters, which means they heat objects via electromagnetic waves which pass through air. This means that radiant heaters do not heat the air in a room, which can be both good and bad. It's good because it means that you feel the heat from halogen heaters right away.

One of the negatives to using halogen heaters is that, since they don't heat the air in a room, the actual temperature in the room will not rise much. You'll feel warmer, but once you turn the heater off, the heat will dissipate quickly. Although this is good for the efficiency factor, it is not always a good choice if you are trying to warm a room.

These heaters are versatile in the fact that they can be a floor model, a tabletop model, or a wall-mount model. This makes them easy to install, wherever you need extra, economical heat. They can be used in various places like warehouses, garages, attics, patios, churches, loading docks, bathrooms and basements.

Halogen heaters are a smart solution to the "how do I heat this area?" problem that we sometimes find ourselves with. They are safe, efficient and easy to install and use. They come in various sizes, so there's a "right" size for your cold place, without being an overkill, size-wise.

One thing to keep in mind when you're using a halogen heater is that they do get do get fairly hot when in use - especially the heating element. It would definitely be smart to make sure that there are no flammable objects near the heater, and also make sure to keep curious children away from the heater as well.
