Radiant tube heaters have a smart method of heating the items in the room rather than heating the air itself. This can provide an efficient and effective way to heat your business premises.
Should you need maintenance services or if anything goes wrong, you can rest assured that you have reliable radiant tube heater repairs available across Yorkshire with Robinsons Facilities Services. Our Gas Safe Registered engineers can diagnose and repair issues with a variety of gas-fired infrared radiant tube heaters.
Why Radiant Tube Heaters Are a Good Option
Radiant tube heaters are a good choice for many commercial premises as they offer an efficient and cost-effective solution to heating. Radiant tube heaters work by heating the objects and people in the room rather than the air, making them ideal for businesses such as warehouses or factories where there is a lot of open space.
Benefits of radiant tube heaters include:
- Friendlier for people with allergies. They do not circulate the air and distribute allergens around the office or commercial premises.
- Cost-effective to run. Radiant tube heaters are designed to be energy efficient and will help you to reduce your business’s carbon footprint.
- Low maintenance. Radiant tube heaters do not require much maintenance and can often last for many years, especially with regular checks.
- They are very quiet. Radiant tube heaters do not make a lot of noise, making them ideal for businesses such as libraries, recording studios, or offices where silence is important.
If you are considering getting radiant tube heaters installed, speak to our friendly and knowledgeable team who can advise you on the installation and which system may be most suitable for your business. We install and maintain heaters across Yorkshire and the North of England.
How Radiant Tube Heaters Work
Radiant tube heaters work by using infrared waves to heat the objects in a room. The radiant tube is filled with gas, typically natural gas or propane, and when the gas is ignited, it 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 and can heat objects like the sun would bake the sand on a beach, for example.
Infrared radiant tube heaters work by using infrared waves to heat objects in the room. They are often used in industrial settings such as factories or warehouses as well as commercial premises such as office buildings or shops.
Common Issues With Radiant Tube Heaters
Over time, radiant tube heaters can develop problems. Potential issues that will need professional repair include issues with the electronics, problems with the gas valves, or frustrating unexplained problems like the heater turning itself off after a while.

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.
