Berko® Offers Energy-Efficient Line of Radiant Infrared Heaters
Collection of Products Provides Clean, Instant Heating
Bennettsville, S.C. – Berko®, a leading choice among contractors for heating and ventilation systems, offers a collection of five new electric infrared heaters that optimize infrared radiation for a faster, more energy-efficient heating solution.
These radiant infrared heaters were developed for light-commercial, light-industrial and residential units in need of localized, zonal heating, and are designed to fit a wide variety of applications, including:
• Small areas: porches, patios, garages, decks and work areas
- Model: QHRA11 (1500W, 120V)
• Mid-sized areas: restaurants, hotels and reception areas
- Model: QHRA66 (2000W, 240V)
• Large areas: car washes, loading docks, bus stops, and more
- Models: QV4440DTG, QVRC442056, QVR4440DWG
Short wave infrared heating works by heating objects, not the air around the heater. Infrared heaters optimize this short wave infrared energy through parabolic reflector technology, allowing for more than 60 percent of heat to be solely generated by the reflector, while the heating element only provides 40 percent – meaning high-performance heating that is matched by energy efficiency. Berko continues to build on this technology through the use of special symmetrical reflectors that optimize infrared performance.
“The high prices of propane per pound in the U.S., coupled with our exclusive reflector technology, provide a substantial cost difference for the end user,” said Dennis Krob, product manager for Marley Engineered Products. “In fact, replacing a propane infrared heater with a comparable electric infrared heater is both cheaper in installation and allows for cost savings of nearly $20 dollars per week.”
Other features of the radiant infrared heaters include:
• Instant effect – no warm-up required
• Uniform, localized, zonal heating – only where it is needed
• Versatile direction– even coverage across people and objects
• Clean heat – no combustion or odors
• Windproof – radiant heat doesn’t heat air, so heating temperature is unaffected by wind
• Dustproof – no air effect means no dust is stirred up
• IPX5-rated and weather-resistant for all outdoor locations
• 6 foot power cord with in-line on/off switch
“With this new line of heaters, we offer the ease of installation that contractors prefer and the dependability that their customers require,” said Krob. “The cost-saving benefits and technological advancements these heaters provide make a huge impact – no matter the application.”
