Radiant tube heaters mounted overhead, produce infra-red radiant heat that is directed downward by a reflector. The primary source of natural radiant energy is the Sun. When standing in the Sun's rays a feeling of warmth is experienced, whilst in the shade, it feels considerably cooler. Radiant heat warms all solid objects in its path.
Radiant energy is transmitted in the form of electromagnetic vibrations or waves, which are emitted by hot surfaces, travel in straight lines, just like light, and are absorbed by cooler solid objects and surfaces on which they fall.
Amba Heat Ltd. have acknowledged the potential energy saving which Ambi-Rad has exploited in the concept of its energy-efficient radiant heating systems. Radiant tube heaters, mounted overhead, produce infra-red radiant heat that is directed downward by a reflector.
The infra-red heat passes through the air without heating it and falls on people, floors, machinery etc. below, creating a comfortable all round radiant warmth at low level, without wastefully heating the whole volume of the building, or the roof space. Because radiant heat can be controlled directionally, only the occupied areas of the building need to be heated, which enables considerable energy savings to be realised.
Advantages of Radiant Heaters
• Very low running costs.
• Ideal and very cost effective for heating large air volumes, with high
air change rates
