    Default Infrared radiant heater

    Has anybody used an infrared radiant heater?
    Are they better at heating than a simple gas or bar heater?

    A gas heater is a radiant heater.

    Thanks, does it heat the room or does one have to sit directly in front of it, like being slowly cooked?

    I have one in my shower. It's often 0 degrees here in the morning in winter. Sometimes - 10. The shower U bend freezes and only opens at midday. The heater is great on naked flesh but useless once wet. It does not heat the space.
