Despite electricity prices being higher than gas, running an infrared heater is cheaper per hour than central heating and your boiler.
A thermal mass refers to a material’s ability to absorb, store and then release warmth. Typically, building materials have a higher thermal mass so that your home can retain heat. As infrared works by heating objects and people instead of the air, all the objects in your room will then in turn radiate heat, and help contribute to keeping your warm home. This ensures your heater doesn’t need to work as hard.
