Traditional indoor heaters perform an invaluable function in our homes and workplaces, especially when it comes to the long Aussie winter months. In all likelihood, you’ve felt that burst of gratitude when you’re at home and feel comfortable enough to shed the multiple layers of clothes you’ve worn because it’s warm inside.
What about outdoor living spaces, though? Or open-aired indoor environments?
I’m guessing you’ve had some difficulty maintaining this kind of warmth when it comes to your verandahs, patios, or any outdoor environment in restaurants, warehouses, or even your shed.
If you’ve overlooked these areas because it seems impossible to keep them nice and toasty, there’s one solution you may have missed out on. Today, your homes and offices can benefit from the amazing technology that is designed into outdoor electrical strip heaters.
Continue reading for a quick look at how they work, their benefits, and how you can get your own units installed.
Unlike convection heaters that heat the air between various objects, strip heaters heat the surface of each object via infrared waves. This kind of system is perfect for outdoor spaces or open-aired indoor environments that are difficult to insulate.
Beyond making outdoor spaces comfortable, these heaters also reduce your heating costs significantly if you’ve been pursuing other ways to keep these environments warm.
Given that these heating strips are designed for external areas, they’re built with an anodised alloy casing that protects them from corrosion and also comes in a stylish, compact form.
After they’re installed, it’s likely that you’ll forget they’re even there until you feel cocooned in the warmth they provide.
Before you dive into enjoying the benefits of outdoor electrical heating solutions at home or work, you need to choose the right system for your needs.
This comes down to choosing an appropriately sized system with the right ratings and warranties.
To begin with, it’s important that you calculate your heating requirements, which, in turn, determine the kind of system you will need. Other factors that will play into this include how many heaters you’ll need to maintain an even temperature in your outdoor area. As part of this process, you will also need to decide where you will install each device, including your sensor.
You may also have to consider the fact that there are different outdoor electrical strip heaters to choose from including ceramic finned varieties, channel strip heaters, and insulated strip systems as well. Here, it’s always a good idea to consult a professional electrician on what the best option is for you.
When you’re choosing your strip heaters, make sure you’re looking into residential or commercial warranties as well.
Never underestimate the importance of professional installation services if you’re keen on enjoying pleasant warmth and plenty of comfort in your outdoor spaces.
Getting this procedure right is critical given that these appliances operate differently and are more sophisticated compared to traditional convection heaters. As a result, the installation process tends to be a little more complex, requiring the expertise and experience of licensed professionals.
Your technician will, ideally, tour the environment you want to heat and make recommendations on how to go about heating this space. Our electrician at Alliance Climate Control does this and provides free quotations that cover the installation process.
That said, installation is not the only thing that’s important. Work with your service providers when it comes to creating an after-care schedule, which will ensure that your system is cleaned and is working optimally whenever you need it.
This kind of maintenance goes a long way in extending the lifespan of your systems too.
It’s equally important to commit to this journey with technicians who can accommodate all your needs and provide value-added services that extend beyond installation. This includes cleaning up your space and getting it back to normal once they’re done setting your system up.
Staying warm at home or in your commercial space should not be a compromise. It’s something you’re entitled to if you have the right heating technology on your side.
Unlike in the past, you no longer have to battle through the winter and pay expensive heating bills to stay warm wherever you are. With the right set of outdoor electrical heating strips for your space, you have what you need to stay comfortable and content- regardless of how cold it is outside.
