Mensa Heating are an inventive manufacturer of infrared heating products that reimagine traditional outdoor heating solutions. Established in 2005, Mensa Heating designed their first product: the Imus, as an innovative outdoor patio heater with a focus on portability, versatility, and efficiency. Since then, Mensa Heating have developed several exciting patio heaters that continually strive to achieve their company goals of eco-friendly and versatile outdoor heating that outperforms traditional gas-filled systems.
All Mensa Heating products come with their patented Safe to Touch technology on the grill in front of the heating elements. This grill shields you from the intense heat of the device and is perfect if you have a family pet or child that may stray too close to the device whilst it’s in operation.
Mensa Heating’s range of outdoor patio heaters are rated IP44, which makes them splash proof and able to withstand a spilt beverage. In prolonged wet weather, however, you should move your product inside to avoid damaging the device and to avoid causing potential injury.
Not all patio heaters glow – depending on what type of heating element is used and what type of infrared heat they emit, determines whether they glow.
Patio heaters that glow are using a more intense form of infrared called near infrared. This type of infrared is designed to combat the harsh outdoor weather and, as such, gets a lot hotter than indoor infrared heaters. These types of heaters, often called quartz heaters, emit infrared radiation that’s a lot closer to visible light on the electromagnetic spectrum – so, products using this type of infrared will often glow. At Electric Radiators Direct, we have a range of products with Low Glare or No Glare options that soften the orange/red glow or remove it entirely.
Patio heaters that don’t glow are using far infrared radiation. This is a softer form of heat and doesn’t require the same amount of heat as near infrared. Because of this, they don’t emit any light and the infrared heat is invisible to the human eye. Far infrared is a gentler form of infrared and is best suited for internal home use.
Mensa Heating’s range of patio heaters are designed to be a cost-effective and eco-efficient alternative to conventional gas-filled patio heaters. Compared to a traditional gas heater, Mensa Heating products achieve a 94% saving in running costs with an hourly rate of just 13p! Mensa Heating products also use a highly efficient infrared quartz shortwave bulb with low wattage that converts 92% of its electricity into heat – ensuring that almost all the power it uses from the mains is converted in to heat, minimising waste. Mensa Heating claim that, compared with gas-filled patio heaters, their products provide 95-98% on energy savings and, compared with other electric patio heaters, 80-83% - making them some of the most energy efficient patio heating products on the market. As an additional bonus, switching to an electric patio heater can also spare the environment a huge amount of CO2!
Mensa Heating products can also become CO2 neutral by being run on electricity powered by renewable energy, making them super-efficient and kind on the environment.
