Electric quartz heaters
The Illustrated Guide to Mechanical Building Services, Third Edition (BG 31/2017), by David Bleicher, published by BSRIA in 2017, states in relation to electric quartz heaters: ‘Quartz lamps mounted in front of a metallic reflector emit radiant heat to the space below. Heat output is achieved as soon as the unit is switched on. The maximum mounting height is approximately five metres. Quartz radiant heaters are particularly cheap and simple to install, however, as with all forms of electric heating, fuel costs and CO2 emissions are higher than for comparable fossil-fuel fired heating systems.’
