FAR IR heaters.... anyone have any experience of them? Any top tips?
We've got gas central heating with a relatively new (6yr old) efficient boiler for water and heating. We're having trouble getting the whole house warm (downstairs in particular) and looking like it may be very expensive to improve the current system (may require zoning, new pipework, new boiler - hard to say as our piping is REALLY complicated - no one seems to be able to work it out as it's a split level 70s build house, extended multiple times - nothing about it is simple!). Anyway, as an alternative to ripping everything apart, I was thinking about maybe supplementing the existing heating in some rooms with IR heaters on the ceilings (to be run only certain times of the day when needed)? I can only seem to find websites that talk about it and no one local who has any actual experience of it - so worried it's all hype. Has anyone tried these? Any advice/top tips gratefully received.
