Tansun's Apollo heaters have recently replaced the inefficient heating system at St John the Baptist Church in Kinlet, Shropshire as part of an ongoing renovation project.

The church’s congregation were in desperate need of a permanent and effective heating solution for the winter months that was easy to use and cost effective. Their previous infrared heating system had been mounted incorrectly, was only partly working and the heaters didn’t offer enough power to warm up the church. In order to get a reliable and instantaneous heating solution for the medieval building, members chose infrared heating specialists Tansun.

Tansun’s Apollo infrared heaters in ivory were chosen for the church as they were powerful enough to heat large buildings with high ceilings. Tansun offers a range of bracketry so the heaters could be mounted at the appropriate angle to warm those below.

John Harrop, churchwarden at St John the Baptist Church commented, “We used Tansun's infrared heaters as a result of a referral after it proved impossible to repair or replace our existing infrared heaters. After doing some research a decision was made by all members of the Parochial Church Council to purchase Tansun’s infrared heaters.

“They were installed for the benefit of the existing congregation, but obviously can be 'enjoyed ' by all our visitors as well. Four Apollo heaters were installed in February 2017 so now we are getting into the winter months we are finding them very beneficial.”

He continued: “If our congregation was to increase and we needed to heat other areas of the church we would consider using Tansun again in the future as we have been pleased with the results.”  

The Tansun Apollo A1C is one of the infrared heaters in the Apollo range which is best suited for corner mounting due to flexible positioning of the heater and bracket combined. It provides instant warmth to objects and people, rather than heating the air around them resulting in a stuffy and uncomfortable environment. The Apollo A1C quartz infrared heater is robust, lightweight and designed with integral heat sinks to keep the heater's temperature low. The smooth parabolic reflector directs the heat outwards, and creates an effective and instant heat source. The Tansun Apollo A1C comes as standard with a swivel bracket allowing flexibility on installation which in turn offers directional heat where required which makes the Apollo an easy to install flexible heating solution. The Apollo A1C is available in power configurations of 3kW, 4.5kW all the way up to 6kW.

Tansun achieves its ultra low glare solution by combining a gold reflector and a premium lamp. This dual combination gives out the lowest light output available from any shortwave infrared heater currently on the market.

All of Tansun’s products are made in the UK and are designed using premium components. The company has been established for 35 years and pioneered the concept of infrared electric heaters alongside Philips technology. Tansun has the largest range of domestic, commercial and industry infrared heaters in the UK, providing maintenance-free, safe and effective heating appliances for customers up and down the country.
