Infrared Heating Panels
ConsultingEnergy going into the process of heating accounts for the largest use of energy in any habitable space and consequently, the highest energy cost. VIPHeating can help you discover energy-saving opportunities, all while improving the design of your spaces thanks to the customizable look of our infrared heating panels and their smaller footprint.
CustomizationBlending Art and Functionality, every infrared heating panel we offer is available in various shapes and dimensions. Each appliance can be customized with high-resolution images which you can choose from our extensive catalog, or you can even provide your own private pictures like images of your family, pets, or your own digital art.
DistributionVIPHeating exclusively markets only the best European brands which either hold patented technologies or lead the industry thanks to the quality of their products. We do not offer cheap clones of substandard quality, reason why some of our products even come with a 10 years warranty by default and present a nominal lifespan exceeding 30 years.
Customer supportAll heating equipments sold by VIPHeating are manufactured in the European Union according to the highest standards. However, in the rare case when customer support is required, VIPHeating goes the extra mile by providing free assistance and counseling, regardless if the device's warranty is still valid or if it has expired.

- All living organisms are subjected to the natural electromagnetic radiation reaching the earth from the sun. Living organisms experience the beneficial as well as adverse effects of it at all levels, starting from sub-cellular organelles and ending with the whole body. Thermal radiation (or infrared) is a band of energy in the complete electromagnetic spectrum and it has been used effectively for millennia to treat/ease certain maladies and discomforts. Heated saunas are only one of the avenues (and perhaps the oldest) to deliver the radiation in a controlled environment and within a convenient treatment time. With the development of better technology to deliver pure far infrared radiation (FIR), the benefits from its effects have widened...
Why Far Infrared (FIR) Heating ?
The drawing on the left explains why conventional heating lacks efficiency.
In contrast, infrared heaters are modern devices which replicate the safest portion of the waves emitted by our Sun. These waves travel through the air until they hit objects. The objects absorb the radiation, producing heat. If the waves come into contact with humans, they will create a feeling of deep heat, but even if you are not directly in the path of the waves, most objects can radiate the heat towards you.
VIPHeating infrared panels do not require any pipe work or fuel storage facilities. The panels do not emit any pollutant and their operation is completely silent. The devices exist in numerous sizes, and can additionally be concealed as mirrors or artwork (you can even use your own images).
A brief history of Infrared light
Sir William Herschel, an amateur astronomer famous for the discovery of Uranus in 1781, discovered infrared in the early 19th century. Herschel was familiar with Newton’s discovery that sunlight could be separated into its separate chromatic components via refraction through a glass prism. Herschel hypothesized that the colors themselves might contain different levels of heat, so he devised an experiment to test his theory. Herschel passed sunlight through a glass prism to create a spectrum (the rainbow created when light is divided into its color components) and measured the temperatures of the different colors.
As he measured the temperature of the violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red light, he noticed that the temperature increased from the violet to the red part of the spectrum. After understanding this pattern, Herschel measured the temperature just beyond the red portion of the spectrum and found this area had the highest temperature of all and thus contained the most heat. What Herschel discovered was a form of light beyond red light. Herschel’s experiments lead to the discovery of infrared light.
The use of infrared heating during the war years continued afterwards and went on to revolutionize many manufacturing processes.
Whilst many people started to use these in the late sixties and seventies to replace coal fires, they were more often seen in workshops and factories. They saw a slight decline in production when people started to move towards central heating systems.
Today NIR heaters are still very present in the market, but the specific type of heat they generate makes them much better suited for outdoor usage.
Germany, Austria, Norway, and other highly developed North-European countries have been using infrared heating panels since over a decade with great satisfaction. These heating panels are now slowly becoming better known in the United Kingdom, Italy, several Eastern-European countries and even in the USA.
