Why are the carbon fibres used in HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters better than other heating elements?
The carbon fibres have a lifespan of at least 10,000 operating hours. This is significantly longer than tungsten, halogen light tubes or quartz elements used in other outdoor heating systems. Carbon fibres produce immediate and comfortable heat when and where you need it.
What are the main advantages of HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters compared to gas-powered heating appliances?
HEATSCOPE® heaters are easier to install and do not require a gas connection. This provides you with more design flexibility and less hassle. HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters are eco-friendly and don't produce harmful emissions. Additionally, electric infrared heaters are low-maintenance and will not have issues with ignition, gas pressure, or hoses which can kink or crush over time.
What exactly is infrared? And what impact does infrared radiation have?
Every object that gives off heat is an infrared radiator – including the human body. This radiation always depends on the wavelength in which the heat radiation is emitted. There is a difference between short waves, mid-waves and long waves.
The general rule of thumb is: the shorter the wave, the brighter the light emitted and the deeper the rays penetrate into the tissues in the body.
The most effective and pleasant waves are the mid-waves (HEATSCOPE® VISION) or the fast mid-waves (HEATSCOPE® SPOT) – these produce the highest possible heat output with high radiant efficiency whilst generating the lowest possible light output.
Is there any heat loss with electric radiant heaters?
HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters are highly efficient, very economical to run, heat quickly, and warm a wider area than conventional electric and gas patio heaters.
What type of infrared waves are produced by other outdoor patio heaters available in the market?
Other infrared patio heaters produce short waves which creates an aggressive red light and an intense, uncomfortable heat.
What type of heating waves does a HEATSCOPE® radiant heater produce?
Is the radiation emitted by electric infrared heaters dangerous?
No, infrared heaters are a safe source of heat. Infrared heat does not have a high frequency like ultraviolet rays and X-rays, which are known to be dangerous. HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters produce medium to medium-fast waves for a pleasant warmth and minimal light.
What is infrared radiant heating technology?
Infrared or radiant heating technology is simply the transfer of heat from a warm object to a cooler object. HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters emit a pleasant sun-like warmth reaching the people, floors, and furniture below rather than heating the air. The result is comfortable, odourless, and silent warmth.
Where is the power connector of HEATSCOPE® infrared heaters located?
The HEATSCOPE® VISION and Spot heaters have the power cable attached to the unit on the right and an on/off switch on the back of the unit.
What are the advantages of HEATSCOPE® heaters over traditional heating systems (such as “mushroom-type” patio heaters?
HEATSCOPE® infrared radiant heaters generate heat directly unlike gas patio heaters which produce a high level of CO2 emissions and only provide heat when in close proximity to the unit. HEATSCOPE® infrared heaters are quiet and do not emit odors as they electrical. For commercial use or for a city apartment terrace where floor space is paramount, the HEATSCOPE® heaters will free up a fair amount of space.
Which heater model is the best for me?
This depends on the installation environment. If you own an open terrace, where sometimes the wind is blowing, we highly recommend only the SPOT power heaters.
But if you want to heat your glass house, conservatory or loggia, we entrust the ambient heaters VISION to you. These perfectly match well covered areas.
A rule of thumb is: The more open the area the more open the heater has to be – even if the other model looks nicer and is pleasing you more.
Why are there design heaters with and without a glass front?
At HEATSCOPE® you can choose between different model ranges. The main difference – along with the length and output – is the design of the front side.
The VISION ambient heater has been equipped with a SCHOTT® NEXTREMA® glass ceramic front, whereas the SPOT power heater has an open fin front screen.
The NEXTREMA® glass reduces the already low light output (only 30% when compared with conventional heaters) by half again to reach a barely perceptible minimum of just 15%. However the glass front also makes the ambient heater more vulnerable to wind.
For this reason, the VISION models should only be used in areas protected from wind.
