Infrared Heater Campaign Provides Safety Inspection Checklist

  • As temperatures drop, many infrared heaters are turned on for the first time in many months. To help promote their safe use and identify potential fire hazards, manufacturers of infrared heating equipment have launched a national safety campaign to provide fire prevention professionals with a brochure that includes a safety inspection checklist and an overview of applicable codes and standards guiding the safe installation of this equipment. The brochure also covers the various types of infrared heaters and their proper use, ventilation and gas connections.

    For additional safety information and to download a copy of the “Heating Safely with Gas-fired Infrared Heaters” brochure or to request one by mail, visit the Infrared Heater Safety Council Web site at www.irsafetycouncil.org. The council is an Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute initiative. Coffee Break Training 2008-31 (July 29, 2008) discussed some of the concerns about clearances from these heat-producing appliances.
