Barn Conversion - Infrared Heating Solution
The owners of a farmhouse and barn approached us to help them with heating their barn conversion for a holiday let. The couple were looking to ensure they could have a heating system which would benefit from the solar panels they were going to be installing. Plans were sent to Jigsaw and we helped them with heating their new build.
When the project began, the building was just a shell. Very quickly the build took on shape and the electricians began adding the wiring for the new heaters.
The benefits of using infrared heating for the barn means the customer can fully control the heating throughout the day with each room being independently controllable. The result is money savings in the long run.
Tailored Infrared Installation
Each of the images shown on this page are taken from the barn conversion. The images are an example of the range of heaters that we have to offer.
On the right, the clients decided they wanted to balance the room with an aluminium ceiling panel and a mirror infrared heater on the wall.
Both of these heaters are available in a range of colours and wattages. They can also be combined with a number of optional features. These include thermostats with touchscreen and remote controls to enable you to adjust the temperature of the room from the comfort of your sofa.
We tailor each installation to your room. We will advise you during the quotation what your requirements will be.
To deliver energy efficiency, reliability and a high level of comforting heat to every part of the villa, infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:
Comforting Heat: Firstly, infrared technology heats objects rather than the air. The result is that panels deliver a much greater level of comforting heat.
Installation: Secondly, they are easily integrated with the current electrics. All cabling is hidden away and fully mounted safely.
Reliability: Next, the infrared panels require zero maintenance in comparison to typical convection heaters and boilers as they have no moving parts.
Repair: Finally, in circumstances where maintenance to the property may be required, the panels can simply be unplugged from the wall and plugged back in after repairs.
A number of infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:
Lounge: Aluminium heaters installed in landscape-style on the ceiling
2 x Bedrooms: Aluminium infrared heaters and mirrors installed in portrait style - slimline and unobtrusive
Hallway: Ceiling mounted panel
Kitchen: Mirror infrared heater
Bathroom: Mirror infrared heater
The whole installation was completed over a 3 days - with minimum disruption.
The new heaters have achieved the owners goals of a simple but effective heating system. This has offered a higher level of efficiency and comfort for their property. Since the conversion, the owner has noted that the heating only needs to be on around 16 degrees to achieve the same comfort levels of a property at 20 degrees. The use of the panels has been problem-free and no maintenance issues have been reported.

Infrared heating is the core of Jigsaw Solutions. We believe we should not be a slave to our home heating systems. Infrared lets us take back control. We also don't need to put the panels in the same places as the radiators. They can be put in many places such as where you would hang a mirror or picture, or even on the ceiling.
As with all our quotations we offer tailored packages with a large range of products to suit a variety of needs. We can completely replace your current electric or water based system or add a single heater. Whether this will be a "Grand Design" or a single room, we can offer a quotation service for all our clients needs.
Our team of installers are professionally trained and have the correct qualifications to install your new equipment. We also guarantee that we will leave your home spotless.
