Infrared Home Heating Solution

Reduce your carbon footprint and monthly heating costs

Whether you’re looking to more effectively heat just one room, or completely switch over to a renewable energy supply, infrared film heating is a simple and yet effective way to sustainably heat your home. Alternative Heating Solutions are proud to be the sole approved installer for Red Snake infrared heating films. Highly trained, experienced and family-run, we safely install infrared home heating solutions in Essex and surrounding areas.

An Efficient Home Heating Solution

At just 0.4mm thick, infrared films provide an invisible heating system that can be hidden beneath your floors, behind plasterboard in your walls or underneath your ceilings. Negating the need for clunky radiators that take up considerable wall space, infrared technology provides whole surface heating. This method targets people and objects, as opposed to air which is far more effective for providing warmth, with less energy required.

A Reliable Home Heating Solution

What’s more, Red Snake heating films come with a 25-year warranty. Not that you’re likely to need it – with no moving parts ongoing maintenance is not required once installed. No more worrying that your boiler may need replacing or that you’ll be paying out for servicing and new parts. Infrared home heating is both efficient and reliable. Furthermore, because infrared home heating solutions are silent and vibration-free, dust is not circulated around the home as with conventional heating systems. This reduces the ability of dust to get into your airways and lungs which is especially advantageous for asthma sufferers.

Red Snake infrared heating foil is constructed from thin layers of materiał bonded together to create a strong and durable heating foil. The carbon layer acts as a primary heating element and is a whole surface heat emitter. The overall structure comprises several layers of synthetic materials that prevent moisture ingress, protecting the copper conductors from oxidization, impeding performance. Heat is generated via infrared radiation, providing ambient heat. without creating convection, as traditional radiators or wet underfloor systems do, so doesn’t cause dust to circulate – a positive benefit for asthma sufferers! Furthermore, Red Snake has no moving parts or liquids and so is both silent and doesn’t cause vibrations. Available with various finishes, Red Snake is suitable for both ceilings and floors.
