Radiant heating has traditionally been installed in industrial and commercial buildings, especially where there are large open areas or in areas where there are heavily ventilated spaces.

With the development of new products, radiant heating has become competitive providing clients with energy efficient and cost effective industrial heating solutions and is a proven heating solution for a wide range of industrial and commercial premises.

Its application is universal including environments with high air change, frequently opened doors, or where there is a need for zonal heating in very large premises.

Argonaut Heating Limited is a specialist in designing, installing and maintaining radiant heating systems. Our design engineers will advise on the most suitable radiant heating equipment to meet our clients’ needs for an energy efficient and cost effective radiant heating solution.

We are an approved installer for all the major manufacturers of radiant heating equipment and our expertise in choosing the right radiant heating solution will ensure clients reduce their running costs.

For some clients, the installation of electric infrared heaters such as those manufactured by Tansun, are the perfect solution. For other clients, gas fired radiant tube heaters like equipment from Powrmatic, Ambirad, Reznor and Schwank provide the most suitable choice for their radiant heating system.

How it works

Radiant heating works in the same way as the sun. The sun’s heat energy radiates through space eventually hitting Earth and warms its surface. This warmed surface heats up and raises the air temperature.

Radiant heat warms all solid objects and surfaces in its path through electromagnetic waves. Being mounted overhead, radiant heaters produce infrared heat that is directed downwards to low level by a reflector.

Infrared energy passes inertly through the air, dissipating as heat upon contact with people and surfaces thus creating a comfortable, all-round radiant warmth at lower air temperature.

Applications

If the majority of a building does not need heating, radiant heating could provide the ideal heating solution. Suitable applications include aircraft hangars, automotive workshops and showrooms, factories, warehouses, sports centres and halls.

The benefits

Installing a radiant heating system in the correct environment reduces wasteful heating of empty space and makes substantial energy savings over conventional boiler and air systems.

It is the ideal form of heating if a client is looking to heat a small part of a large space, or to heat an area with much ventilation. A radiant heater does not waste energy heating the atmosphere as a warm air heater would do.

Radiant heating systems reduce heating running costs, have rapid heat up and recovery times and minimise roof heat losses.

The radiant heating units are easy to install, maintain and operate and provide even heat coverage at low level. Radiant heating systems do not directly heat the air – ideal in areas of high air infiltration. The radiant heating systems can be controlled easily to provide varying zoned temperatures and operating times.
