20 best infrared heaters

Review of the best according to the editorial board. About selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Infrared heaters are popular with users because they heat the person directly, not the air. Working without 'intermediaries' (oil, water, air) significantly increases the heating rate. Still, this type of heating devices does not start convection, and therefore, dust does not fly around the room, there is no extraneous noise from the fan. Most often, private houses and summer cottages have to be heated with such equipment, since additional cold comes from the ground. When traveling to a summer cottage for the weekend, it is long and unprofitable to start up a boiler with a water heating system (collect water, ignite the boiler, wait for the coolant to warm up). Therefore, our experts and analysts of the rankquality service have chosen the TOP-20 of the best infrared heaters that are suitable for such places of operation.

How to choose an infrared heater

Before the list of the best models, we will consider how to choose an infrared heater for a summer residence and at home, so that the equipment does a good job in such conditions. Here are the main parameters to watch out for:

  1. Dimensions. The size of an infrared heater can be from 30x30x6 cm to 200x30x12 cm, so before buying you need to think about whether it will fit in a room in a country house or in a private house.
  2. Power and area of ​​operation. An infrared heater can consume from 0.4 to 3 kW of electricity per hour, which affects the heating rate and the ability to heat a certain area. The average figure for calculations is 0.1 kW per 1 m².
  3. Installation site. Heaters can be floor-standing, wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or universal. This affects the convenience of setting – how easy it will be to reach the toggle switch. It also affects the space occupied (for example, when an infrared device is in the middle of a room, it can be knocked down by children or pets while playing).
  4. Heating element type. The heating element determines the speed of heat propagation, wavelength and outside temperature. The safest are ceramic and carbon film models, but the heat from them takes longer to reach the user. Among the productive heaters, quartz and halogen are in the lead, but you can get burned about them if you accidentally touch the heating element.
  5. Protection of the case from moisture and dust. If the device is sealed, then it can be used in the country, not only indoors, but also outside in bad weather. IR heaters with IP20 protection are suitable exclusively for dry weather or indoor use.
  6. Additional functions. Additional features in infrared fireplaces include: overheating protection, automatic shutdown in case of a fall, thermal control, remote control and the ability to rotate the body on an axis. This increases the comfort and safety of using the appliance in the home.

The maximum placement height without loss of efficiency is 2.2 m.

Our experts liked the infrared heater with the IP65 casing protection, which makes it possible to use it in the yard of a private house (gazebo, terrace or open lawn) even when it rains. In early autumn, short-term warm rain will not spoil the picnic, but with the help of the fireplace it will be possible to keep warm.

In the reviews, the product is praised for the clear operation of the overheating protection. If you leave the infrared heat emitter on at full power and forget about it, the device will turn itself off when it gets too hot.

We found the ceramic infrared heater to be the best because of the wide range of colors available. In total, the model is available in 11 colors.

Rounding out the category is a 2000 W halogen heater with an aluminum casing. Due to this implementation, the weight of the device is only 800 g. The manufacturer allows installation heights up to 2.2 m on the ceiling. Despite the compact dimensions of 39x15x8.5 cm, there are already three lamps inside the device. In the reviews, buyers share that at first they did not believe how such a 'baby' could heat 20 m². But in practice, the device works perfectly and the declared power easily copes with heating a given space.

We paid attention to the product due to the unique fastening. Unlike most competitors, here you can not only adjust the tilt angle of the heater, but move it to the side (the mount can move along the groove on the back wall). With a stationary ceiling mount, this is important if in the country you have to slightly rearrange the bed, sofa or table, not only along the line of the flow of IR rays, but also to the left or right of it. Then you do not need to remove the heater and install it in a new place.

Advantages

  • available in white and black;
  • three halogen lamps;
  • universal design;
  • improved casing cooling;
  • weighs only 800 g.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • without thermostat;
  • only one mode.
