The owners of a farm house and barn approached us to help them with heating their barn conversion for a holiday let. The couple were looking to ensure that 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 specific their heating requirements for their new build.

The building was just a shell when the project began. 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 meant that the customer could fully control the heating throughout the day with each room being able to be independently controlled. Thus, saving money in the long run.

Tailored Infrared Instalation

Each of the images are taken from recent installations. The above image is an example of the range of heaters that we have to offer.

To the left, the client decided that he wanted to balance the room with two of our Glass heaters at a lower level.

Both of these heaters are available in a range of colours and wattages. They also can be combined with a number of options of 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 requirement will be. Click here to see the equation for calculating this.

Recommended Measures

In order to deliver energy efficiency, reliability and a high level of comforting heat to every part of the house, infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:

  1. Comforting heat: using infrared technology, which heats objects rather than the air, panels would deliver a much greater level of comforting heat.

  2. Installation: with a refurbishment in progress, the panels would be easily integrated in to the current storage heater wiring. Therefore, minimal wiring and reparative work was required.

  3. Reliability: the infrared panels require zero maintenance in comparison to typical convection heaters and boilers since they involve no moving parts.

  4. Repair: 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

Barn COnversion Heating


A number of Infrared heating panels were chosen for the installation:

    • Lounge: Aluminium heaters installed in landscape-style on the ceiling
    • 2x Bedrooms: Aluminium Infrared heaters and mirrors installed in portrait style – slimline and unobtrusive.
    • Hallway: Ceiling mounted panel
    • Kitchen: Italian range of heaters – comforting heat and a useful mirrored surface.

The whole installation was completed over a few days – with minimum disruption and a complete decoration of the apartment.

Barn heating


The new heaters have achieved the owner goals of a simple but effective heating system offering 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 that we should not be a slave to our home heating systems. Infrared enables us to take back control. We are no longer obliged to place the panels in the same places at the radiators. Our panels can be ideally placed at the same place as 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 applications. 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 professional trained and have the correct qualifications to install your new equipment. We also guarantee that we will leave your home spotless.
