Quartz heaters work like the sun, radiating their heat instantly to the person or objects within their beam. It is the most effective way to warm people, as there is no warm-up period. Also, as the air in between remains unheated no heat is lost to draughts, open doors or high roof spaces. This form of heating is ideal in part-occupied buildings as the heating can be zoned and controlled.
