Infrared heat, the type used in Infratech heaters, is different from the heat in your house.
Furnace heat, the type used to warm your home in winter, is different from Infrared heat. it’s generally moderated by adjusting a thermostat to a specific temperature, and works by heating the existing air circulating throughout your household.
Outdoor Infrared heaters differ by transferring heat directly to objects. This means, the placement of your infrared heaters is determined by the outdoor space you want warmed up.
If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “How to Infrared Heaters work?”, think of them like the Sun, they give off infrared rays that heat the air as they pass through it. Infrared rays are absorbed by solid objects, literally warming you from the inside out.

How to maximise the effectiveness of infrared heaters in New Zealand.
Kiwi winter’s, autumn’s and spring’s often deliver chilly breezes that are felt through to the core. When times are usually too bitter to enjoy, infrared heaters allow porches and other backyard spaces to remain comfortable.
To get the most out of your infrared heating system, aim your infrared heaters directly at seating areas and set your temperature to maximum output. Infratech heaters are very directional and will warm anything in their path. After your furniture itself is heated, adjust the temperature of your heating units to a comfortable level. This is a great example of an outdoor heater best practice, as it uses the benefit of having highly adjustable controls to your advantage.
