Why Far Infrared Heating is better to use in Spain and Portugal?

What to choose: Far Infrared Heating or other heating systems in Spain and Portugal?

To understand and compare the Far infrared Heating to other heating systems, we should firstly analyse the heating type and its efficiency. Far Infrared Heaters use only electricity to operate.

Secondly, we should take a look at the health and life aspects to make sure that Far Infrared Heating is harmless.

Thirdly, we will learn about implementation and maintenance costs to run Far Infrared Heaters.

Then it is very important to understand all about energy consumptions, costs and limits.

And finally we will take a look at the smart controls for even more comfortable life.


Far Infrared Heating – direct type of heating, which means that Far Infrared Heaters heat the surfaces instead of the air. To be more specific, about 80% of the heat goes to all surfaces in the heated area. Whereas 20% of heat goes to the air.

Immediate and continuous heat

On the one hand, you can immediately feel the heat which feels like from the sun. On the other hand, the heat is absorbed by walls, ceiling floor and all objects and then all these give the heat back to the environment by heating the air. This will assist to maintain a comfortable temperature in a room you prefer.

Warm walls, ceiling and floor

With time, every next week you will use Far Infrared Heaters less to maintain the same comfortable temperature, because the heat will be accumulating in the surfaces and objects in the heated areas. In fact you will realise that even the walls are being warmed up by the Far Infrared Waves. Every building material can absorb the heat, it is just a matter of a time.

Traditional heating is different

The majority of traditional heaters and modern heating systems is indirect heating, which heats only the air. There are many disadvantages of such heating type:

1. Dries the air. Which is especially bad for people with allergies. The eyes will be always dry.

2. Warm air is out when door or window is open. Every time you open a window or door, the heated air will always come out through them.

3. Helps spreading the dampness


Does not spread the bacteria

There is zero air circulation while using Far Infrared Heating. Especially during the COVID time it is very important to prevent any virus spread indoor and outdoor.

Prevents the dampness formation

Moreover, due to the fact that the Far Infrared Waves get inside of walls and ceiling, there will be no dampness any more. In buildings where there is already a problem of dampness and wet walls, it takes 2-4 weeks to solve the problem completely while using heaters by Royal Infrared Heating. Thus Far Infrared Heating is the best choice to heat property in Spain and Portugal.

Recommended by specialists

You can have a consultation with your doctor to investigate more about positive effects of Far Infrared Waves which are highly recommended.

Used for hospitals, clinics and sport and spa centres 

Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating are widely used in Spain and Portugal. Our heaters are used in health and sport organisations to fulfil heating and consumption needs. Did you hear about Hot Yoga? Using Far Infrared Heaters as the main heat source for the Hot Yoga is a modern solution not only in Spain and Portugal but also in other parts of the world.

And this happens when you use traditional heating

Most of the traditional heating systems use the air to heat rooms. Of course, this simnifically helps to spread bacteria and viruses. Thus, many offices in Spain, Portugal and other EU countries during the COVID time decided to go for Far Infrared Heating instead of prebuilt AC, to minimise all risks involved.

AC also cannot be used by people with allergies. Unfortunately, even more, AC can harm your eyes because it dries the air. And this is another big reason why Far Infrared Heating is better to use in Spain and Portugal.


Installation cost and time

Most of Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating can be mounted without help of electrician or installer. For examples, to mount Far infrared Panel Heater “Domus” you only need to drill 4 holes. Like mounting a picture. Screws, dowels, drilling template and instalaltion guide are included with each product by Royal Infrared Heating. It can take from 10 to 30 minutes to install each panel. This means that the installation cost is close to zero in most of the cases. Especially because our heaters can be controlled remotely (via plug-in or integrated thermostats).

However, if you prefer to have the “perfect installation” when cables are not visible and hidden inside of the walls/ceiling, you might need a help of electrician (unless you can install it yourself). The instalaltion price per heater may vary from 10 to 100 euros, depends on your electrician. For example, in Costa Blanca we can assist you selecting the right person for the installation.In this case the price per heater may vary from 30 to 60 euros (depends on the complexity). The time depends on each property and conditions of mounting a heater.


There is simply no maintenance. You can easily clean (if you ever need) our Far Infrared Heaters (when off) with any wipe.

Whereas traditional heating needs a lot of attention

Air conditioner, for example, requires a professional installation inside the property and on the roof (in most of the cases). 

Oil or gas heating requires professional installation of tubes.

In fact almost all traditional heating systems require maintenance. For AC, for example, you need to fill freon and change filters.

The heating with propane, which is popular in some parts of Spain requires you to buy (which is very expensive especially in 2022) and change bottles every 1-2 weeks. 


Average use

Due to the fact that the Far Infrared Heating reaches and heats walls, floors and ceilings and then give the heat back to the air, the Far Infrared Heaters are recommended to use 2-5 hours per day only to maintain a comfortable temperature. 

Moreover, the power of heaters by Royal Infrared Heating is low – from 350 to 1800 watts per heater.

Average cost

Roughly speaking, on average, there will be a price of 7-15€ per month to have 19-20 degrees Celsius in a bathroom all day long of 3-7m². And 10-20€ per month for a bedroom of 7-14m². Which is 2-3 times less than using any other traditional heating system. The price depends on number of hours you use the heater(s) and the price you pay per kW.

Energy limit

Energy that you might need to have depends on number of heaters you have and needs you have. Be assured in any scenario there will not be any problem with the energy limit. It highly depends on customer and product management. Far Infrared Heating is used as general heating source for both small apartments and big villas. Our team is always happy to assist you with selecting the right model and number of Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating.

You can check out Wattage Calculator to calculate a number of heaters you need approximately. We highly recommend you to reach us out for a specific calculation and recommendation.

Electricity bill can be too high while using traditional heating

Using AC, gas, oil as source of heating will bring you a loto f expenses. The simple explanation for that is this: to maintain the heated area warm and cozy you need to run the traditional heaters almost all the time. Because they heat the air. Thus the energy consumption will be much higher than when using Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared heating.



Another great difference from traditional heating systems is discreet appearance of Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating. All our heaters are space-saving heating solution. For instance, the Frameless and White Far Infrared Panel Heater “Domus” has a thickness of only 2.5cm. The Far Infrared Mirror Heater “Repulsus” – 4.4cm. 


Choose the suitable size of the heater for each room of your home. The Far Infrared Heaters can fulfil your heating needs for any room size – from the smallest bathrooms to open space lounge areas. Moreover, we know how to heat your patio and any covered outdoor area. Contact our team for a personal consultation for more details.

Remember how do AC or gas heater look like?

A big majority of other heating systems just look ugly. Firstly they are always huge and do not not fit room design.


Smart thermostats

To control remotely and set temperature on the Panel Heaters “Domus” and Towel Rail Heaters “Linteum” and “Linteum S” you can use Smart Thermostats (plug-in and mains powered). Control each panel/towel rail separately and set temperature and timers. Use group, family and other smart modes to enjoy the Smart Heating.

Integrated Smart Thermostats

Some models of our Far Infrared Heaters like Smart Heaters “Velit Sol” have the integrated thermostats so no extra thermostat is required. Such heaters you can control with a remote control or with your smartphone/tablet. You can synchronise an account between all of your devices, even of your family if you prefer. Thus everyone has an access to control the Smart Heater from any place, even when away from home.


To summarise all Far Infrared Heating advantages; and disadvantages of the traditional heating systems (AC, oil, gas heating etc.):

1. Far Infrared Heating gives you instant and continuous heating by warming all surfaces including walls, ceiling, floors, objects and even people.

Other heating systems heat only the air and help to spread dampness.

2. Far Infrared Heating is harmless

Indirect heating (AC, gas) is not harmless

3. Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating are easy to mount and have no maintenance.

Other heating systems require professional installation and sometimes even renovation.

4. Far Infrared Heaters by Royal Infrared Heating will compliment the look and feel of your home. Different sizes and power for different rooms.

Other heating systems in most of the cases do not look nice. In most of the cases it is required to make the installation of the complete heating system even when you want to heat only specific room or area.

Velit Sol is a very innovative device. We purchased initially 2 units for our lounge area. When realised that it was worth it we ordered several units for each of our bedrooms. From September to November we used them mostly on 25 and 50%. And then from November to mid of Feb on 75-100%. Did not really feel any negative impact on the electricity bill. On top of that in Autumn the bill was reduced by 30%. Thanks Leo for excellent service.
