In order to
properly understand the pricing benefits associated with purchasing an infrared
panel radiator from us you need to understand how they work. Manufacturers of
conventional heaters (ie convection heaters, central heating radiators, etc)
want to focus your attention on the initial sale price of the radiator,
irrespective of the running costs associated with the radiator. With infrared you need to take in to account the energy efficiency of the radiator in order to truly appreciate the cost benefits.
a workable metaphor, think of conventional light bulbs verses an energy saving
light bulb. Whilst energy saving bulbs are initially more expensive than
conventional light bulbs, everybody knows it doesn’t take much time in order
for them to pay for themselves several times over through your electricity bills.
Our infrared technology is exactly the same. Spending a little extra on your
initial purchase of an infrared radiator is exactly the same as spending a
little extra on an energy saving bulb, you are investing in cheaper fuel bills
and in actual fact saving yourself a lot of money. Of course, we would say that
as we are trying to sell these radiators to you, so lets look at a worked
average sized room: 2.5m x 2m x 2.4m = 12m3
volume of the room in metres squared by 25 to work out the size infrared
radiator required (when using our infrared heaters, you need 25w of power per cubic metre, this is why you multiply by 25). In this instance 12 x 25 = 300, so this room would require a
300w infrared panel radiator in order to heat it properly. One of our
smallround radiators at 310w would do the job nicely in this instance and would
cost you £379.99.
expected that if you run this radiator 24
hours a day it would consume about 500Kwh of electricity per year (this is
information provided to us by our manufacturer Redwell, the authority in
infrared heaters). This means at an average cost of about 14p per Kwh
throughout the UK (accurate to 2011/2012) this set up would cost you £70 a year, or £5.8 a month, to run.
contrast this with a cheap convection heater. Remembering that our technology
is 3x as efficient as conventional heaters, you would require a 1000w
convection heater to achieve the same output. These cost you about £40 and only
last a couple of years. Using the same worth of
electricity a year when used in the same way as the redwell infrared. This
means that in under 2 years our infrared radiator panel has paid for itself,
and will continue to slash large chunks of money off your energy bills throughout its long life
How long will my infrared radiator last?
That is a
fantastic question and one that sadly we’re unable to answer simply because we’ve
yet to have a single radiator fail post production. Thats right, not a single
Redwell infrared radiator has failed post manufacture; all of our radiators
come with zero maintenance and zero servicing costs too. Redwell infrared radiators
come with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee, however their anticipated life time
based upon the materials used in construction is thought to be about 130 years.
I wonder how many convection heaters you’d have to buy over the course of 130
years? Thats also a very long time to have cheaper fuel bills for!
