Heating outdoor and cold areas have just become much simpler and effective as a result of a major breakthrough in heater technology, with the Alfresco infrared outdoor heaters.
What makes the Alfresco patio heater special?
Air is constantly moving, making conventional patio heaters, also known as Mushroom heaters as well as electrical halogen heaters impractical. Hot air rises so that as soon as these heater types warm the air, it simply rises, to be replaced by colder air which is heavier. The Alfresco heaters do not waste energy warming the air but rather, allow specific spaces within an outdoor area to be targetted, warming only the people and objects in those spaces.
Whether for work or recreation, the wall-mounted heaters turn cold indoor and outdoor areas into comfortable inviting spaces.
These Alfresco infrared heaters produce safe infrared radiant energy that is only absorbed by solid objects and is not wasted heating the air. Electric Infrared Heat is remarkably efficient and cost-effective. Over 90% of the input energy is converted directly to radiant heat. Alfresco wall mounted heaters focus that energy on customers rather than the open air, so that it is effective at large distances.
Medium wavelength infrared is less harsh than typical short-wave heaters and is ideal for situations where the heat source is close to people. Medium wave elements (burning at around 900°C) take a few minutes to reach peak heat and are more suited to heating specific targeted areas.
The medium wave heating elements emit a safe, clean wavelength of light that is only absorbed by solid objects, transferring heat directly to a person, table or floor rather than heating the air.
In addition, the heaters can be fitted with motion sensors without negatively impacting element lifespan. This ensures the heaters only operate when customers are present, providing significant savings.
The Wall Mounted alfresco infrared heaters are constructed from Marine Grade stainless steel and special composite alloy, providing outstanding resistance against corrosion – an important feature for humid climates or coastal areas.
With a compact and elegant design, they can fit any decor, and with easy installation and minimum clearance, can be mounted at lower heights, under canvas or timber eaves. The casing itself does not get very hot so the heater may be recessed into ceilings safely.

Why wall mounted Alfresco infrared heaters?
Three times greater
Alpina heaters are much larger than most rival products, measuring up to 156cm in length. One alfresco heater will do the job of three regular heaters.
94% of the energy is converted to heat. The use of 98% pure aluminium reflectors, polished to a mirror finish is a crucial element of the design of our heaters, amplifying the energy emitted significantly while keeping running costs low.
Our heaters turn cold indoor and outdoor spaces into comfortable inviting spaces, all year round.
Our heaters produce safe infra red radiant heat that is only absorbed by solid objects and is not wasted heating the air.
Available in single or double element configurations and a variety of sizes, the heaters are the ulitmate heating solution for any indoor and outdoor area.
