Infrared Panel Citara M – The Discreet Metal Heating Panel
Are you looking for more information on the operation and use of a metal infrared panel? The innovative heating panels enjoy high popularity and are becoming increasingly well known - and for good reason. VASNER's infrared panels not only stand out with their modern design, but also provide a pleasant room climate thanks to their advanced and innovative heating technology. A big advantage of metal infrared heating panels is that they allow for more flexibility in terms of mounting locations in contrast to conventional heating systems. For example, a metal infrared panel can be installed on the wall and even the ceiling without a problem.
In the following guide, you will find further details on this special type of electric heating.
How does an infrared panel work?
Unlike conventional heating systems, an infrared panel does not heat the air, but instead creates a comfortable temperature by directly warming up the objects, walls and people in a room. The long-wave C-radiation provides targeted warmth that avoids the extra step of heating the room air and therefore does not whirl up dust. This effect is especially beneficial for allergy sufferers and people with sensitive airways. The operation of VASNER's infrared heating panels is completely harmless, as the infrared technology used in the metal heaters is incorporated in sinuous lines, so no magnetic field is generated.
Infrared Panel Test - VASNER Citara M is TÜV Süd and GS Certified
Safety should always be a top priority when using electrical equipment. To ensure highest safety standards, the VASNER metal infrared panel has been carefully tested and awarded both the TÜV Süd and GS seal of approval.
The high quality of VASNER infrared panels is also visible in their double backside insulation that prevents energy and heat loss to the rear. This feature also guarantees that the back of VASNER infrared heating panels only slightly warms up during the heating process, so that no heat damage can occur to the wall or ceiling where the device is mounted.
Mounting your Infrared Panel on the Wall / Ceiling
A special advantage of the VASNER Citara metal infrared panel is its sophisticated mounting system, which allows for an installation of the device on both the wall and the ceiling. The bracket can be mounted in the desired area with the included dowels and screws, so that you must only lock the infrared heating panel in place afterwards.
Once the infrared panel is in position, it is secured with a special safety lock that prevents it from swaying or falling down. This way the metal heating panel is mounted reliably in the desired spot and provides safe warmth. VASNER's patented bracket allows you to mount the radiant panel snugly against the wall or ceiling without an unnecessarily large gap. This ensures that the flat infrared panel (only 2,5 cm in depth) is hardly noticeable and does not disrupt your interior decor.
Metal Infrared Panel Available in Different Sizes
As mentioned above, the far infrared heater is very flat and space-saving with only 2,5 cm of depth. The width of the chosen heating panel ultimately depends on the required wattage of the device. Below we have listed the dimensions and weight of the different infrared panel models:
- Model "Citara 300M" / 300 watts / (H x W x D) 60 x 40 x 2,5 cm / 3,5 kg
- Model "Citara 450M" / 450 watts / (H x W x D) 60 x 60 x 2,5 cm / 6,2 kg
- Model "Citara 700M" / 700 watts / (H x W x D) 60 x 90 x 2,5 cm / 8,6 kg
- Model "Citara 900M" / 900 watts / (H x W x D) 60 x 120 x 2,5 cm / 10,9 kg
- Model "Citara 1100M" / 1100 watts / (H x W x D) 60 x 140 x 2,5 cm / 11,8 kg
Infrared Panel Power Consumption
You would like to know the cost to run an infrared panel? If you need an estimate of energy consumption and heating costs for your individual rooms, please use the VASNER infrared heating requirement calculator or call our team of experts.
How much electricity an infrared heating panel consumes depends on several factors:
- Which watt model do you have?
- Do you use the heater as a primary heat source or as an auxiliary heater? (The VASNER heating requirement calculator assumes that you use the device as your main heater).
- How large is the desired heating area?
- How well is the room insulated?
- How many outer walls does the room have?
- How frequently is the room used?
- Is the heating area exposed to strong draughts?
- How high is the ceiling of the room?
How much your power consumption costs will ultimately depend on your current electricity price. This price is also taken into account by the VASNER online calculator for required output and resulting heating costs.
Infrared Heating Panel with Thermostat Control
For a particularly efficient heating process, we recommend using the infrared panel in combination with a programmable thermostat. In VASNER's online shop you can buy different thermostat models. Whether you prefer a wireless radio thermostat, a plug-in socket thermostat, a flush-mounted thermostat or any other kind of digital thermostat - the manufacturer VASNER offers high-quality control systems for your electric infrared panel heater. Thermostats can do so much more than just display the current temperature. For example, they allow you to program different heating cycles. Certain temperatures can be set for certain times of the day in addition to many other features, such as integrated frost protection.
Can an Infrared Panel be Used in the Bathroom?
If you are looking for an efficient bathroom heater, an infrared panel is the perfect solution. A permanent connection to the power supply can be set up in no time at all by an electrician. The advantage of a fixed connection: No power cord is visible and the metal heating panel with IPX4 splash-water protection and a white surface can be integrated into your bathroom seamlessly. Thanks to their very flat design, the infrared panels fit perfectly even in very small bathrooms. The additional towel rails for VASNER Citara panel heaters are a practical accessory for your electric heating system. They are available in sets of two and can be mounted on the Citara infrared panel in just a few easy steps. So pleasantly warm towels are always on hand when you get out of the shower.
Infrared Panels with a 5-Year Warranty
Safety is an absolute priority when it comes to VASNER products. The manufacturer provides a 5-year warranty for the quality of every Citara metal infrared panel. Of course, you also benefit from a 30-day return policy after your purchase. Furthermore, the Citara metal panel series is TÜV SÜD tested. Another safety feature: The far infrared heaters are equipped with multiple heat protection switches, so that the surface temperature is automatically reduced in case of overheating.
Free Standing Infrared Panel Heater
If you would like to use your metal infrared panel as a portable auxiliary heater, you can purchase compatible feet in the VASNER online shop. With these, the heating panels for wall and ceiling mounting can quickly be turned into free standing heat sources for your home or office. Simply place your infrared panel on the metal feet, fasten the small screw and the device is set for use. Thanks to the sturdy metal and a width of 20,5 cm, the feet lend your heating element reliable stability.
