Answers to frequently asked questions
Here you will find the answers to the most commonly asked questions about Infranomic and the Infranomic heating method using infrared warmth.
What is infrared light?
Infrared light is a way of transferring energy via electromagnetic waves. The light warms the objects it comes into contact with, regardless of the surrounding temperature. Our sun or fireplaces are examples of natural sources of infrared light. The long wave infrared light is completely harmless to humans and animals in contrast to UV, X rays or radioactive rays.
How does the Infranomic heating unit work?
The warmth is generated from electrically conducting carbon fibres that are fixed behind a glass or ceramic plate. When electricity is passed through these fibres, they begin to warm up and transmit the comforting infrared light.
How many square meters of living space can an Infranomic heating unit heat?
Not only the surface area but also the height of the room, arrangement, existing insulation and the outside temperature can determine which and how many Infranomic heating units you require. The following rules of thumb can act as a rough guide for a building with modern heat insulation:
Heat power
Dimensions of the heating unit
Room size
400 W
700 x 600 mm
7-8 qm
900 x 600 mm
11-12 qm
600 W
1100 x 600 mm
13-14 qm
700 W
1200 x 600 mm
16-18 qm
How much radiant heat does Infranomic produce?
The Infranomic heating unit produces around 70% radiant heat and only 30% convection. Normal radiators produce the opposite. The degree of efficiency of an Infranomic unit is close to 100% - so almost all of the electricity used by the heaters is transformed into heat.
What is convection?
Convection is the warming of the surrounding air, as is the case with a conventional heater. The heated surrounding air rises due to its low density and forces the colder air to the ground. The air begins to circulate; dust is disturbed and dispersed into the surrounding air. Convection can also lead to a cold feet effect, as the colder air is permanently forced to the ground. With Infranomic heating units however, there is a relatively low convection effect and therefore only a small amount of dust is disturbed and warmth is distributed evenly.
How can the Infranomic heating unit be installed?
Infranomic heating units can easily be mounted on the wall or on the ground. A detailed installation guide is included with every delivery.
What seal of approval have Infranomic heating units been awarded?
Infranomic heating units have been awarded the TUEV/GS safety approval from the German TUEV Sued Technical Inspection Authority. A CE mark confirms the products adhesion to current European guidelines.
Do Infranomic heating units have any parts that are subject to regular wear and tear?
No, there are no such parts.
What needs to be considered when operating an Infranomic heating unit?
Operation is very easy the unit works automatically when plugged in. An external timer thermostat that can be individually programmed is available optionally.
Can the Infranomic heating units be installed next to a shower or bath?
Infranomic heating units have been splash-proof tested and approved by TUEV Sued (IPX 4). Installation in the bathroom is therefore completely possible.
Can I cover Infranomic heating units?
No. Heat would build up under the covered area and this would cause the temperature to rise. The integrated temperature safety cutout reacts at a temperature of around 105 C. However, Infranomic heating units should not be covered under any circumstances!
Do Infranomic heating units generate electromagnetic pollution?
The magnetic field produced by Infranomic heating units is smaller than the field strength of a normal electric light bulb.
How hot does the surface of an Infranomic heating unit get?
The maximum surface temperature is around 90 C. There is no danger of burning if the unit is touched.
Is there a danger of electric shock if one of the panes is broken?
No! Even if the glass is broken, the pieces will be held in place because the double insulated carbon fibres are fixed to the entire surface with an adhesive. However, for safety reasons, the power plug should be pulled out immediately if the glass is broken.
