Infrared heating directly heats the thermal mass of the building and its occupants, rather than the air. This form of heating is particularly useful for community buildings which require varied heating requirements throughout the day.
Case study: Elsea Park Community Centre
Elsea Park is a Community Centre based in Bourne, Lincolnshire, used by various clubs and organisations. The modern building is also available for hire by individuals, groups and businesses. The directors were considering improving their energy efficiency and approached BEE for support. Following a site visit from a BEE advisor, it was identified that the draughty reception area was being heated by inefficient electric fan-heaters, and recommendations were made to replace this with infrared heating.
