Roberts Gordon has been a leader in the radiant heating business for over 50 years. Our infrared tube heating product line includes everything from a compact, plug-and-play residential infrared heater to fully-engineered and designed radiant tube heating system. With such a wide range of styles to choose from, there is an infrared tube heater suited to heat for your building. Flexible design layout options allow for full heat coverage for each application.
Infrared heaters provide a quiet, clean, comfortable and draft-free environment. Heaters are energy efficient and easy to install. Let us help you select the right infrared tube heater for your application - contact us or find your local representative to purchase.
Why Infrared Heating?
Infrared heaters heat similar to the rays of the sun, warming the surface of the earth. As the sun shines on the earth, infrared rays are absorbed by objects and people. With people and objects retaining the absorbed heat, additional heat is released back into the space through radiation. With infrared operating and the constant cycle of heated people and objects, ambient temperature is maintained with minimal heat loss.
Infrared heaters efficiently and effectively use all three fundamental methods of heat transfer. Convection occurs when heated objects or people release stored warmth or energy back into the space. Conduction occurs when the open flame within the tube heats the exterior and interior surface, creating the infrared energy. Radiation occurs when the heated infrared tube releases radiant energy to the objects below.
Benefits of Infrared Heating
Heats Like the Sun
Infrared heats similar to the sun heating the earth, gently warming people and objects with radiant energy.
Easy to Operate and Maintain
Infrared tube heaters are easy to install indoors or outdoors, operate efficiently and maintain for many years.
Draft Free Heating
Infrared provides draft free heating using radiant energy to heat without the need for large warm air fans to move heat around the building.
Infrared is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, located between microwaves and the visible light we see each and everyday.
Lower Air Temperatures
Indoor air temperature thermometer reading can be set lower, due to infrared heat absorbption and radiation of objects and people.
Indoor Heat Reservoirs Created
Infrared heater energy is stored within objects and then released back into the space through convection, allowing for a rapid heat recovery.
Infrared tube heaters quietly heat spaces through standard radiant heating methods.
Infrared tube heaters can reduce energy bills up to 50% compared to alternative heating systems.
