Electric infrared heaters are an effective solution for sustainable and climate-neutral heating. They are characterised by their very good price-performance ratio. As electric infrared heaters are powered 100% by electricity, they do not require any additional work on the building, such as flue gas ducts. Furthermore, electric infrared heaters do not cause any direct emissions and with their robust construction they also require minimal maintenance.

The eSchwank electric infrared heaters are decentralised heating systems. They generate heat exactly where it is needed: In the area where people are staying. Electric heaters work with the infrared principle and are characterised by high efficiencies. Electric radiant heating is rated as 100% renewable.

Hybrid solutions

Optimal industrial heating system von Schwank

However, electric radiant heaters have higher consumption costs than, for example, gas infrared heaters based on the many times higher electricity costs per kWh than gas. In order to optimise consumption costs and for renewable energy shares, it is worth considering hybrid solutions. Hybrid heating systems are defined as a combination of several systems, e.g. electric radiant heating in combination with tube heaters, heat pumps, plaque heaters, warm air heaters or radiant ceiling panels.

Schwank has a large infrared industrial heating product range. An industrial heating system from Schwank is always adapted to the application, installation possibilities and the actual heat requirement. The eSchwank products are divided into 3 categories: they differ in their outputs, sizes and thus suspension heights.
eSchwank is suitable for heating big buildings in industry, commerce, logistics as well as for sports facilities and workshops.

The principle of electric infrared heaters explained simply

The principle of electric heaters

How does an electric infrared heater work?

An electric infrared heater is a device that converts electrical energy into infrared radiation and thus heats objects or people. This creates a balanced microclimate of air and radiant heat that is perceived as very pleasant.

The principle behind every electric infrared heater is simple: The heater converts electrical energy into infrared radiation, which then hits the illuminated surfaces and is converted into heat there. The heat is not transferred through the air but is emitted directly to the objects or people. This means that there is no heat loss.

An electric infrared heater has several advantages over other heating systems, such as:

  • It generates a quick and pleasant heat that acts directly on the illuminated surfaces without heating or moving the air. This saves energy and avoids dust turbulence and dry air.
  • It is easy to install and operate, as it does not require a complex flue system like a gas radiant heater.
  • It is low-maintenance and long-lasting because it has no moving parts. It has a high efficiency, as almost 100% of the electrical energy is converted into heat.
  • It is flexible to use as it is available in different sizes and power levels. It can be mounted on the wall and on the ceiling. It can be used either as an additional heater (hybrid system) or as the main heater.
