Benefits

The benefits of Gas Fired Infra-red heating are numerous and can vary depending on their application. However, below is an outline of the major benefits you are guaranteed to receive compared to conventional heating alternatives.

Dramatically Reduced Fuel Consumption
In comparison to other gas and oil heating systems, reduction in annual fuel consumption of up to 50% is common and very realistic. For some recent real-life scenarios please visit our Case Studies page.
Excellent Payback
Within 1-3 year payback is very common, even compared to other “high-efficiency” gas and oil heating systems.
Superior Comfort Level
Infra-red radiant heating heats objects, resulting in air being warmed by conduction & convection.

Compare Conventional Heating to Infra-red Radiant Heating
With Conventional Heating, hot air briefly passes through the primary heating zone and then quickly rises away from it. With Infra-red Radiant Heating, people and objects in the primary heating zone are targeted and heated directly, so the heat efficiently stays where it is needed most.

** Ongoing savings do not include the additional savings received due to greatly reduced maintenance costs compared to the previous heating sources

In the scenarios where oil was the previous heating source, it is important to note that the comparative savings are all conservatively based on the price of oil staying under $2 per gallon. As the price of oil increases over time so do the savings.

In Summary

Of course it's impossible to tabulate all the benefits in an easy to reference chart. However, in our follow up meetings after installation with our customers, one benefit is mentioned again and again - IMPROVED EMPLOYEE COMFORT LEVELS AND SATISFACTION. Our customers, (and their employees) typically make a point of commenting on the greatly improved comfort before they even praise the savings. It seems savings are one issue, but the employees working in the buildings REALLY notice and appreciate the significant improvement in their working conditions. And as we all know, employee comfort is absolutely priceless!

Contact us now to arrange for a preliminary evaluation and your free, no obligation cost analysis, and you'll see why literally thousands of businesses just like yours are reaping the benefits of converting to the Infra-red Heating.
