Infrared Heater – Diesel – Indoor


Diesel Infrared Heater

Runs off a standard 240v/10amp power point and burns Diesel to generate heat. The point of difference with this style is that they burn 100% of the fuel source, so no waste, gas or smoky exhaust – perfectly safe and perfect for larger indoor spaces. They project plenty of heat, are stylish and thermostatically controlled (also very quiet). These are extremely popular in Scandinavia where they’re mainly used indoors in both domestic and commercial spaces.

Our model available for hire:
AH-600 which has a 45-litre diesel capacity and covers an area of approximately 130sqm


Does the heat also spread evenly in large spaces?
Yes, it does. Infrared heat spreads evenly over very long distances. Many mistakenly think that a fan is needed to transfer heat from one end of a hall to another, for example. A fan is not needed – the infrared heater heats up material, such as the wall, floor and all the materials in the space.

Why is an infrared heater more efficient than a fan heater?
The infrared heater heats material. A fan heater heats air. When you open an overhead door of a hall, for example, the warm air inside escapes, and cold air gets in. In a hall equipped with an infrared heater, all materials are warm so a lot of heat energy is retained even after the air change. In a hall equipped with a fan heater, all the heat escapes out of the door, and heating must be started over at a much lower temperature. As such, the infrared heater needs much less energy.

How can there be an odourless diesel heater?
When the fuel used is burned almost completely, it does not create odours or dangerous emissions. Carbon monoxide is formed by incomplete combustion, with too little oxygen. When combustion is complete, no carbon monoxide is formed. The product development history of Airrex goes back over 20 years, so the heater’s operation has been honed to perfection.

Why do I catch a slight smell when the heater starts/stops?
When the heater starts/stops, a mild odour of fuel may came from the exhaust pipe. This is because, upon starting/stopping, the heater does not quite manage to completely burn the fuel mist from the nozzle. The unpleasant odour is not dangerous.

How can I be sure that no hazardous gases are coming out of the exhaust pipe?
The exhaust emissions of Airrex AH-300 & AH-800 have been studied and measured in Finland at the energy technology laboratory of Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences (KYAMK). Since 1992, the emission measurement laboratory at KYAMK has conducted exhaust gas measurement for power plants, the process industry and shipping companies.
