Infrared radiant heating panels are the latest innovation in heating; it’s a simple, reliable way to warm up your rooms without consuming too much energy. Traditional electric convection heaters will consume a lot of energy to keep on and that will cost you a lot of money. This is not the case with IR radiant heating panels; you can keep them on and provide a comfortable temperature for you and your family, staff or even for maintaining the quality of your products. You can use the infrared radiant heating panels for everything!

The Ecora infrared radiant heating panels are 2.5 cm thick and match any room design.

You can use Ecora IR radiant heating panels to bring extra comfort to your home or office by integrating them into your existing heating system. Also, the panels come with a built in temperature sensor that turn it off when the optimum temperature has been reached. If not, you can always upgrade with a thermostat, optimising to your heating system.


Ok, it’s a great new innovation, so what’s the catch? You have to find the appropriate size panel for the size of your rooms. If you choose a panel that is too small, it will not warm up your room sufficiently, if you buy a panel that is too big, then it will overheat your room and you will be consuming energy for no reason. If we are talking about a ceiling panel, then it needs to have 50 watts for every square metre. If we are talking about a wall panel, then it needs to have 60 watts for every square metre.

Important: For ceiling panels you need the help of professionals to install and in the case of wall panels all you have to do is make sure to have them placed near a socket.

1.       When trying to heat a small area: To heat small rooms you have to purchase heating panels of 250 watts, that will heat up a 4 to 5 square metre room depending on where you put the panel (on the wall or the ceiling; it heats more if you hang it by the ceiling but you need professional help to do so).

2.       For medium size rooms: you need 350 – 400 watt panel, which come in different style designs and materials according to the room medium (bathroom or normal room). It will warm up a room of 5 m2 if you hang it on the wall and one of 7 m2 if you hang it from the ceiling.

3.       Heating big rooms like living rooms, hallways: 600 watt per 10 to 12 m2.

4.       Heating panels for large spaces such as storage spaces: 800 – 850 watts is the largest size and its designed to warm up draughty, open plan spaces (one or two panels should do the trick, all you have to do is talk to your Thermonordic supplier for advice and guidance in use). You warm up 13 to 17 m2.
