Save energy with Alfresco’s ALF50 infrared heaters

Important factors to remember with outdoor IR heating: Infrared heater dual element Electric Outdoor heaters patio and restaurants People sitting outside comfortably

  • Keep the space between you and the ALF50 infrared heater clear.
  • For best IR heating results use the ALF50 in a semi enclosed space or spot
  • This way you reduce wind chill
  • Use a motion sensor & timer

By keeping the space between you and the ALF50 infrared heater clear you feel the most heat. IR heating does not warm the surrounding air. This means that if there is something blocking the radiant heat energy, you will not feel the heat.

Remember IR heating heats objects not the air.

Motion sensors are a great way to get the most from your electric heater. When there is motion the outdoor heater turns on. With a timer, you can have it set to turn off. Our patented elements are not affected by the number of times you turn the element on and off. This in turn saves you money. You only need to heat a space when you have guests. Our elements last a minimum of 7000+ hours.

Using a timer, the ALF50 turns off when there is no movement in the area. We also recommend using your infrared heater in a semi enclosed space. Since the ALF50 heats you directly, there are no CO2 emissions. You are breathing fresh air in the comfort of your outdoor garden patio.
