Energy efficient and cost-effective infrared heating keeps you warm and saves money
If you’ve ever felt the glow of the sun on your face or the heat of an open fire, then you’ve enjoyed the wonderfully warming sensation of infrared heat.
By harnessing the power of infrared in our homes, we can create an energy efficient and cost-effective heating system that can save up to 50% on household bills.
How infrared heating works
Infrared is a form of completely safe electromagnetic radiation that can be used to heat your home and save money.
An infrared heater is plugged into your electricity supply and therefore works as a replacement for traditional radiators.
How? Conventional systems mainly use the principle of convection to heat up a room. As a radiator warms up, it heats the air around it. The hot air expands and rises but the surrounding cooler air works to pull this warmth back down. This process of heating, rising, cooling and falling creates a convection current, which in turn gradually heats up a room.
Infrared works differently. An infrared wave keeps travelling until it hits an object and it is only then that it produces that lovely feeling of instant warmth.
Forget waiting for the empty space in a room to heat up while you keep adjusting the thermostat and watching your money disappear. With infrared heating, there is very little waste.
What is more, if used alongside a solar PV system to generate electricity, infrared heating represents a clean, green, energy efficient solution.
- Infrared heating doesn’t waste energy by heating up unused space in a room
- Uses up to a third less energy than convection heating
- No energy loss through unsightly central heating pipes
- Instant heat
- No noise
- The perfect complement to solar PV systems
- Easy to install and zero maintenance
- Wall or ceiling mounted
What our customers say
We are very pleased with the spray foam insulation system and have noticed big difference in the warmth of the house.
The men worked very hard and did a good job. 10/10 for punctuality and cleanliness of the treatment team.Stockport
.......... and since we only had mains electricity power laid on at the bungalow, our hot water had always cost us a fortune using the immersion heater. The Solar Thermal system you installed - especially the twin cylinder layout - means that we don't waste any available power and the running costs of the system are minimal. And we have got hot water! Thank you also for installing the battery backup system to get us over power cuts that we get!
Infrared heating FAQs
While it is true that your electric usage will slightly increase, you will make that back by what you are saving on your heating bills. Infrared heating uses up to a third less energy than convection based heating systems.
Not at all! Just as with any other heating system, the only danger is if you get too close to the heater itself. However, our infrared heaters get no warmer than a traditional radiator (it’s just that it’s much better at heating up your home and saving money in the process).
Yes, and because there are no moving parts and no noise, an infrared heater is perfect for bedrooms. They can even be placed in bathrooms although care must be taken about where they are installed because they are powered by electricity.

With energy bills soaring in six weeks’ time Midlands energy expert Ron Fox gives ten example of how householders can reduce their bills by up to £250 a year now. The energy price cap, which is going up on April 1, will see those on default tariffs paying by direct debit an increase of £693 […]
A plan to relax the rules to make churches more comfortable at the same time as cutting carbon dioxide emissions has been welcomed by a Midlands green energy expert. Ron Fox was commenting on a move to allow places of worship to install more carpets and cushions so the draughty buildings will retain more heat […]
With world temperatures in 2020 set to be the second warmest year on record the latest figures take the world one step closer to the limits stipulated by the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change agreed by 196 countries.

Following on from this autumn’s international climate change conference, it is even more important to ensure households have a green Christmas.
Supermarkets should all be encouraged to put doors on their fridges because it would cut the UK’s total electricity usage by one per cent, says a Midlands green energy expert. “It just shows how a small move can have such a big effect in the fight against climate change,” said Ron Fox, of Noreus Ltd. […]
A £5,000 subsidy to persuade householders to switch from gas boilers to low-carbon heat pumps is totally inadequate, says a Midlands green energy expert. “The £450m grants in total will fund just 90,000 houses with the latest green technology, but there are up to 25 million UK homes who have gas boilers,” said Ron Fox. […]
A plan to switch green surcharges on household electricity bills to gas bills to encourage consumers to move to lower carbon alternatives is an imaginative idea, says a Midlands green energy expert.
