Different Types Of Heaters

Radiant Heaters

Radiant Heaters

Radiant heaters work by warming people and objects, rather than the surrounding air. Choose the radiant heater that works best for you.

Infrared Heaters

Infrared Heaters

Infrared heaters offer instant and directed heat exactly where you need it. The heat provided feels like enjoying the summer sun (but in the winter).

Convection Heaters

Convection Heaters

Convection heaters warm air and rely on the convection action of rising hot air and falling cold air to keep areas warm.

Forced Air Heaters

Forced Air Heaters

Forced air heaters utilize fans to draw cold air across a heating element and then distribute the hot air into the room.

Heaters are available in a variety of styles, functions, and type of heat source.

The first step in choosing the right heater is to determine the area to be heated. Important questions to ask include “How is your building insulated?” and “What climate zone are you in?”. Using the FHA standard insulation and mid-North American zone average of 8.2 watts/ ft2 here are the basics to guide you. Remember that a poorly-insulated building will require more watts/BTU's.

Measure the size of the area to be heated and multiply length x width x 8.2. Find your total watts required for the room. Figures are based on standard 7' ceiling height, 15% total window and door openings on outside walls and 3/4 total air changes per house.
