Enhance your heat pump’s efficiency with Infracomfort far-infrared heat panels for targeted zonal home heating


At Infracomfort, we prioritise creating comfortable, energy-efficient home environments for New Zealand families. Our company specialises in far-infrared heating solutions, focusing on targeted zonal heating. In this article, we delve into the benefits of integrating our far-infrared heat panels with new or existing heat pump systems, leading to an efficient and effective heating solution for your home.

Home heating doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game

Far-infrared heating and heat pump technologies can harmoniously coexist, providing an optimized solution for home heating. By pairing Infracomfort’s far-infrared heat panels for targeted zonal heating with heat pumps to maintain a comfortable background temperature, homeowners can experience a balanced and efficient heating system. This integrated approach not only boosts overall comfort but also promotes a more sustainable and eco-friendly living environment.

Targeted zonal heating with far-infrared heat panels

Infracomfort’s far-infrared heat panels offer a distinct advantage over traditional heating systems – targeted zonal heating. Rather than heating an entire space, far-infrared panels warm objects and people directly in their path, providing a comfortable temperature where it’s needed most. This targeted approach ensures energy-efficient heating of specific zones, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills.

Heat pumps for background temperature control

Heat pumps are efficient heating and cooling systems. They can maintain a comfortable background temperature in your home. By setting the heat pump to provide a minimum background temperature, your living spaces stay warm and inviting even during colder months.

Enhanced energy efficiency and comfort

Combining Infracomfort’s far-infrared heat panels with a heat pump system creates an integrated heating solution that maximizes both energy efficiency and comfort. The heat pump maintains a consistent background temperature, while far-infrared panels deliver targeted warmth to specific zones. This approach minimizes energy waste and ensures year-round home comfort.

Environmentally friendly heating solution

Both far-infrared heat panels and heat pumps consume less energy compared to traditional heating systems, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint. By integrating these technologies, you create a sustainable and eco-friendly home heating system.

Easy integration and customizable aesthetics

Integrating far-infrared heat panels and heat pumps into your existing home infrastructure is simple. Additionally, Infracomfort’s far-infrared heat panels come in various designs and styles, allowing you to customize your heating system’s appearance to seamlessly blend with your home decor.


Combining Infracomfort’s far-infrared heat panels with a heat pump system delivers an efficient and effective heating solution for your home. By harnessing the unique benefits of both technologies, you can enjoy a tailored heating experience catering to your specific needs while reducing your carbon footprint and energy costs. Explore our range of far-infrared heating solutions and consider incorporating this innovative heating combination into your home for a more comfortable and eco-friendly living environment.
