How intelligent infrared heating can benefit those working from home

Since the coronavirus crisis caused many businesses to close their offices, the UK has seen a significant rise in the number of people working from home. This is a trend that looks set to continue – which means that as we move toward the colder months, you could find yourself relying on your home heating system more than ever before

Working from home may mean that you’re no longer battling over the office thermostat with your co-workers, but it likely also means that you’ll be turning the heating on more frequently at home. If you have traditional gas central heating, this probably doesn’t sound ideal – using more heating means paying higher bills, and will increase your personal carbon footprint.

That’s why homeowners are investing in innovative heating solutions like Ambion’s computer-controlled, infrared heating system. Infrared has many inherent benefits, as it’s a low-carbon, low-cost source of heat. Ambion’s unique software takes these benefits even further, which makes it an ideal choice if you’re looking for a cost-effective, comfortable way to heat your home.

Ambion can help you to…

Reduce your heating bills

Unlike traditional convection heating, which heats the air, infrared heating heats the materials within a room, which saturates them with energy. While heated air often escapes out of windows or doors, materials that have been warmed by infrared tend to hold onto heat for much longer. In fact, studies have shown that with infrared heat, the air temperature feels comfortable at up to 3.5˚C lower than it does when heated by conventional heating – so you should find that you’re setting your thermostat lower, saving electricity and saving money as a result. Its running costs are therefore at a comparable level with air source heat pumps, but Ambion is up to 40% cheaper to install.

As Ambion’s computer-controlled system learns about the fabric of the room it’s operating in it intelligently ‘pulses and phases’, only turning on when necessary to maintain the temperature – typically only turning on for around 12 minutes in every hour. So unlike traditional central heating, which you typically turn up when you wake up in the morning and then again in the evening, Ambion uses electricity little and often all throughout the day. This is good news for your energy bills, as it means you can avoid using a lot of energy during the times that everyone else is turning their central heating up – so if you’re on a flexible tariff, you can avoid ‘peak demand’ periods when electricity costs are highest.

Make your home more comfortable

When you’re spending a lot of time at home, you want your environment to be as comfortable as possible, and Ambion can help you to ensure it is so. Firstly, many people find that infrared heat feels much more natural than central heating – when you’re in front of an infrared heater , you’ll feel like you’re standing in direct sunlight. Ambion also maintains an ambient temperature 24/7, so you don’t have to wait for the house to warm up when you wake up, as is so often the case with central heating. And with Ambion’s control panel, you can adjust the temperature to suit your preferences, and set different target temperatures for different rooms to ensure you’re comfortable wherever you are in the house.

Our system can also help to make your home a healthy place to live and work, for you and the rest of your family. As infrared heats the walls of your home, it can prevent damp and condensation from occurring in the first place, and even help to reduce existing damp. And because it’s not reliant on circulating air, like traditional central heating, there’s typically less circulating dust – so you should notice an improvement in the quality of the air within your home.

Live more sustainably

Climate change is an increasingly pressing global issue, and we all need to play our part in helping to ensure that we can limit the damage that’s already being done to ecosystems and communities across the globe. If you’re keen to reduce your personal carbon footprint, switching to infrared heating can greatly reduce your heating emissions. Ambion’s system is powered by your mains electricity, which means it creates significantly less emissions than traditional gas-fuelled central heating.

Because Ambion’s system is computer-controlled, it also uses over 60% less energy than conventional convection heating and 3% less energy than air source heat pumps. Using less energy overall is one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and so installing Ambion is a great way to do this.
