What Are Radiant Tube Heaters?

Radiant tube heaters are an energy-efficient heating system used in commercial and industrial spaces. Unlike conventional forced air heaters that warm an entire area, radiant tube heaters provide targeted heating exactly where needed. 

How Do Radiant Tube Heaters Work?

Radiant tube heaters work by using infrared waves to heat the objects in a room, rather than aimlessly pumping heat into the air. The radiant tube is filled with natural gas or propane gas which, when ignited, produces infrared waves.

These waves travel through the air and bounce off walls and objects in the room, heating them up. A good analogy is to consider the way the sun heats objects rather than the air. A radiant tube heater has a similar method, heating objects like the sun heats the sand on a beach, for example. 

They are often used in industrial settings, such as factories or warehouses as well as commercial premises, such as office buildings, shops, or outdoor terraces.

What Are the Benefits of Radiant Tube Heaters? 

Radiant tube heaters are a good choice for many commercial premises as they are an efficient and reliable commercial heating solution

Benefits of radiant tube heaters include:

  • Friendlier for people with allergies – Radiant tube heaters do not blow dust and allergens around like forced-air heaters do. 
  • Cost-effective to run – They are designed to be energy efficient so you’ll see savings in your heating bills and help reduce your business’s carbon footprint.
  • Low maintenance – Radiant tube heaters require little maintenance and can often last for many years, especially with regular checks.
  • Minimal noise – These heaters are much quieter than commercial warm air heaters, making them ideal for businesses, such as libraries, recording studios, or offices where silence is important.

Radiant Tube Heater Repair FAQs

These are quiet indoor heaters that use radiant heat, using fewer BTUh but managing to heat the same space as some warm air heating options, saving on energy and money.

With all heating systems there are precautions to take, but the design of the radiant tube heater is perfectly safe. As long as safety is considered in installation and repair then they are safe to use.

Radiant tube heaters are relatively straightforward to install, however, there are several factors to consider, such as model intensity, ceiling height, gas supply, and optimal placement. Mistakes here could cause issues with gas leaks, overheating, melting of objects in the room, and low efficiency. For these reasons, it’s best to trust a registered engineer with the installation.

No, you don’t need any permits or regulations to have a radiant tube heater in your commercial premises. However, it must be installed and maintained in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Gas Safety (Installations and Use) Regulations 1998 for gas-fired products.

With radiant tube heaters, precise zoning control allows you to set target temperatures within 5-10 degrees Celsius. Modern controls also enable rapid heating/cooling responses between work areas.

No, radiant heaters can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations without a problem and are designed to last for decades. They are constructed from durable alloys and thermally insulated to allow operation from -30°C to 50°C reliability.

The cost of commercial radiant tube heaters starts at around £1,000. Prices vary depending on model intensity, brand, etc. so we recommend contacting us for more information or a free quote.

These heaters can last up to 15 years before you need to replace them, but it is possible that you will require some radiant heater repairs in that time.
