1. How much does is cost to run an infrared heater?

It is difficult to calculate accurately the running costs of an infrared heater, since this depends on a number of factors. These can be the power and efficiency of the heater, the duration that the heater is on or the electricity tariff you have. An easy way to estimate the cost is by multiplying the power of the heater with the electricity tariff. For example, if you pay 8p per kW per hour and you use an infrared heater of 2.0kW, your estimated running costs will be 16p per hour.

2. Many heaters have the letters IP and a number next to them on the description. What does IP stand for?

The acronym IP stands for Ingress Protection and the number denotes the degree of protection against the ingress of solids (i.e. dust) and liquids (i.e. water). This means that heaters with numbers 5 or 6 on the IP rating are fully weatherproof and can be use in all seasons.

3. Are the infrared heaters weatherproof?

Most of our heaters are specifically designed for outdoor use and can be installed and run on dusty or wet environments. To find heaters that are suitable for all seasons and weather conditions, you should look at their IP rating. The IP Rating denotes the degree of protection against dust and water. Heaters with IP ending in 4-6 are fully weather resistant and can be used in all outdoor applications and seasons.
