Is Far Infrared Heating efficient in Spain and Portugal?

The Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating are very popular in Spain and Portugal. For the last years our team helped to heat more than 2700 homes.

Don’t know much about Far Infrared Heating? We strongly recommend to read the article “Why Far Infrared Heating is better?”.

To clearly determine the efficiency of the Far Infrared Heating in Spain and Portugal let’s take a look at the following aspects:

  1. Heating in Spain
  2. Type of insulation in Spain and Portugal
  3. Type of pre-installed heating in Spain and Portugal
  4. Home interior design in Spain and Portugal

Do you really need heating in Spain?

No one tell you that there is a cold period in Spain. Unfortunately, it is relevantly long – from 4 to 6 months. Early in October many our customers already start using their heaters by Royal Infrared Heating during cool evenings and cold nights. Till March, April you will want to have some sort of heating in your property in Spain and Portugal.

How well buildings are insulated in Spain and Portugal?

Dramatically bad insulation unfortunately in 70% of the cases. The reason for that is simple – most of the properties in Spain and Portugal, especially new-built ones, are built for tourists and as secondary home. They assume the properties will not be used that much during the winter. Indeed – this is what happening in Spain and Portugal during Autumn and Winter. However, in fact it should not be the reason, it is a consequence of badly build properties.

So what options do I have?

In fact you can renovate your property or simply go for Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating. The second option is much cheaper and more efficient. Even if you make renovation, you still need some type of central heating.

Can Far Infrared Heaters heat surfaces efficiently in Spain and Portugal?

Yes, of course. In all cases, just depends on the right Far Infrared Heater model and size. All walls, ceilings, floors, objects and people can absorb the heat. Just a matter of a time. Usually it takes less than 5 minutes to start feel the solar heat and less than 10-15 minutes (depends on a room size) to heat the room completely (if you use the Far Infrared Heaters continuously).

Are they efficient even for rock houses?

Absolutely! Commonly in Portugal there are many rock houses. Many of them literally have rock inside of a house which makes a property even colder. The Far Infrared Waves can heat such properties too, by heating it from inside. Unforgettable feeling when you are in a room where Far Infrared Heater is operating.

Do many house have pre-build heating systems?

Many of them indeed have some sort of heating system. For instance, Air Conditioner and Fireplaces/Chimneys are very common in Spain and Portugal. However, as you know, indirect heating is not efficient and consumes a lot of electricity (in case with AC). Far Infrared Heating in its turn – direct type of heating, which heats surfaces instead of air.

Fireplaces/Chimneys are perfect for atmosphere evenings, but not for practical everyday heating. unless you want to spend some time every time you want to heat your property by preparing and cleaning fireplace or chimney. Moreover, it would be too expensive to have such heating option in every room. The price for Far Infrared Heaters start from only 335€ (299€ with discount).

Do Far Infrared Heaters look nice at home?

No doubt about it. Home interiors in Spain and Portugal are relevantly minimalistic and simple. Just like the heaters by Royal Infrared Heating. Discreet appearance and modern design. We have a wide range of models, different colours and sizes. Everything you need to have an efficient and low consumption heating at home.
