We are Church heating specialists

ARC Thermal are Church heating specialists. We know that there are specific challenges. There are different rooms and large spaces to heat in Ecclesiastical buildings. An important issue is cost, bearing in mind ever increasing energy bills.

Does your Church use convection heating?

It is often the case that existing church heating is a convection based system. This is usually ineffective at heating large spaces that have high ceilings.

Most of the warm air rises into the high ceiling void. Only when this air cools does it descend towards the floor where the occupants feel the benefit. These convection currents also draw in outside air through the leaky doors and windows, creating unpleasant cold drafts and cooling the rooms and spaces in your church.

Convection based heating also presents a challenge when adhering to COVID-19 guidelines regarding enclosed spaces. Opening windows means that you lose the warm air you have paid to heat and the convection currents facilitate the spread of viruses.

Or you may have the old style short-wave infrared bar heaters which glow. They are hard to regulate. They create focused areas of heating, whilst leaving ‘cold spots’ throughout the church. They also make you ‘hot-headed’, when standing directly underneath them!

Infrared heating for churches

Infrared energy generated by medium and long-wave infrared heaters and panels travels inertly through the air.

It dissipates as heat upon contact with the clergy and congregation. This creates a comfortable, all-round radiant warmth at lower air temperature.

The medium-wave heaters are ideal for ambient heating of large spaces like the nave, whilst the more gentle long-wave panels are suited to the ancillary rooms with lower ceilings.

Infrared heating is economical, comfortable and safe. Visit to find out more.
