Retail environments come in all shapes and sizes and can be very busy at peak times which means their heating systems need to be flexible and robust. Infrared heat offers a number of key advantages for shops and other retail spaces…
Shop in comfort
By necessity retail environments must cater to large numbers of people who enter and exit frequently and move around the shop floor unpredictably. Convection heaters, which rely on air currents, often struggle to heat large retail spaces consistently and shops which open onto the high street must also contend with drafts from outdoors. Most retail environments must work to maximise profits which means using their available space innovatively, and creating a pleasant shopping experience for customers. Radiator heaters, especially older ones, can be unsightly and bulky, taking up valuable store space and disrupting the visual appeal of a store. Heating systems also bring practical concerns for retail businesses: extensive maintenance, repairs or refurbishments may force a shop to close or create a costly disruption to normal service.
