Do Infrared Heaters Work Well?

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: David in Iowa is on the line with a heating question. What can we do for you?

    DAVID: I’ve heard you guys talk about infrared heaters.

    TOM: Yep.

    DAVID: And I have a house from the 70s; that’s the 1870s.

    TOM: OK.

    DAVID: And I have cool spots in the house. I’d like to do the zone heating and our two questions – one, how good are these infrared heaters and two, are they affordable?

    TOM: Well, I think the answers – the answer to both questions is that they’re very good and yes, they are affordable. I will say that we just started to work this year with SUNHEAT and they sent me one of their infrared heaters. And I was immediately impressed by its quality. The cabinet is very solidly built; the electronics look like they’re solidly put together.

    And as we started to use it in our kitchen, I noticed that the heat was very warm, very comfortable and even very moist. And so I think in our particular application, it was a perfect fit because we had one room in the house that’s a little chillier than all of the other rooms, because I have a very old house, as well. Mine is just a little bit younger than yours; it was built in 1886. But that was a perfect application.

    And there are many folks that use these SUNHEAT heaters for particular rooms or areas of their house and then they will turn down the heat in the other rooms. And that makes sense, too. If you have a living room or a dining room or a kitchen where you find that you spend most of your time on the chilly, winter evenings, why heat the rest of the house? You can turn down the heat and use a SUNHEAT infrared heater to, essentially, just warm the room where everybody is sitting.

    DAVID: Well, that sounds great. I’ll try and find your website and see if I can find one.

    TOM: Alright, terrific. David, thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
