How to choose an infrared heater

What should you pay atten­tion to when choos­ing the best infrared heater?


Infrared heaters have a wide range of prices. The most afford­able will cost you 700 rubles. More advanced mod­els will cost from 3 to 5 thou­sand rubles. If you want some­thing more pow­er­ful with an abun­dance of addi­tion­al func­tions, you will have to “go broke” for 10–11 thou­sand rubles.


Infrared heaters have the high­est degree of safe­ty. The basis of such devices is radi­a­tion, which in its action resem­bles solar heat. Not only does it not harm a per­son, but it can also have a pos­i­tive effect on the body.



Addi­tion­al reli­a­bil­i­ty is pro­vid­ed by pleas­ant fea­tures that man­u­fac­tur­ers sup­ply their devices with. If almost all of them are equipped with auto-shut­down sen­sors in case of over­heat­ing, then floor-stand­ing mod­els also auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn off in the event of a rollover.

Heating area

This para­me­ter direct­ly depends on the pow­er of the device. Devices with an indi­ca­tor from 0.1 kW to 1 kW allow you to heat small and medi­um-sized rooms up to 15 m². Such devices are usu­al­ly used in apart­ments and pri­vate hous­es in the pres­ence of a main heat source.

Infrared heaters with a pow­er of more than 1 kW (includ­ing pow­er­ful mod­els of 3 and 4 kW) are ide­al for the role of the main heat­ing device in the house. In addi­tion, they can eas­i­ly heat an open space, such as a ter­race.

Noise level

Noise­less­ness is one of the undoubt­ed advan­tages of infrared heaters. Dur­ing oper­a­tion, you will not hear any fan noise or the crack­le of the heat­ing ele­ment.

Mounting specifics

Infrared heaters can be both mobile and sta­tion­ary. The first can be installed on the floor, they have sta­ble legs, as well as wheels for ease of move­ment. In addi­tion, many floor mod­els also have a wall mount. Often these are low-pow­er appli­ances and devices with medi­um pow­er, designed for small and medi­um-sized rooms or heat­ing a cer­tain area.

Sta­tion­ary infrared heaters can be either wall-mount­ed or ceil­ing-mount­ed. As a rule, these are more pow­er­ful mod­els that can act as the main (or even the only) heat­ing device in the room.

Additional features

Most infrared heaters are equipped with fea­tures such as auto-off in case of over­heat­ing and tip­ping over (the sec­ond is for floor mod­els). In addi­tion, some appli­ances are equipped with a built-in ther­mo­stat, which allows you not only to set the on and off times, but also to set a cer­tain tem­per­a­ture that needs to be main­tained in the room.

Anoth­er nice addi­tion is the heater remote con­trol. Most ceil­ing mod­els are equipped with it by default, while for oth­ers its pres­ence will be a good plus.

Checklist when choosing the best infrared heater

  1. The most pre­ferred is the ceil­ing mount­ing type. In this case, the device does not take up use­ful space, and the largest area of ​​the floor is in the zone of heat rays, there are no obsta­cles between the emit­ter and the heat­ing objects.
  2. Depend­ing on the require­ments, the pow­er of the heater is select­ed. If it is need­ed as the main pow­er source, it is imper­a­tive to pur­chase a device with a pow­er of 1.5 kW. In the case of addi­tion­al heat­ing, 1 kW or less will suf­fice.
  3. It is nec­es­sary to pay atten­tion to the mate­r­i­al of the hous­ing and the heat­ing ele­ment, as well as the insu­la­tor. This is most rel­e­vant if you are look­ing for a heater for the bath­room — the case must be water­proof. In gen­er­al, in terms of reli­a­bil­i­ty, mod­els with a stain­less steel case look bet­ter than with an alu­minum case. At the same time, alu­minum is often the most styl­ish.
  4. If you pur­chase a mobile IR heater, make sure it is equipped with a rollover switch. This can pro­tect you from fire.
