How is the heater controlled?
The heater can be either hard-wired or controlled with our Bromic Smart-Heat On/Off or Dimmer controls.
What clearance do we need from adjacent ceiling fans?
The heaters require a 900mm minimum side clearance from combustibles.
Does the heater come with ceiling brackets?
Yes. It comes with two brackets that can be used to secure the heater to either a wall or ceiling. We also offer a ceiling recesses kit for a more flush-mounted aesthetic.
Are the heaters adjustable in temperature and output?
The 4000 and 6000W versions of the Tungsten Electric come with two heating elements, which can be controlled separately to adjust the heat output as required.
Are the heaters waterproof?
The Tungsten Electric series has a IPX4 water ingress protection rating. Although our heaters are made from premium materials and engineered for longevity, we recommend that they are best mounted under cover and not directly exposed to rain, snow and salt mist to ensure they maintain their aesthetic appeal.
How many heaters do I need?
Whether you are looking for residential or commercial outdoor electric radiant heaters, the answer remains the same. The number of units needed depends entirely on the size and layout of the space, as well as the size and wattage of the heaters you are installing.
Infrared vs. radiant heaters: what’s the difference?
The truth is Infrared heaters and radiant heaters are in fact the same. The term “radiant heater” specifies that the heater is generating heat using radiation while the term “infrared heater” indicates the primary type of radiation being used by the heater to transmit that heat. All infrared radiant heaters are radiant heaters, as they provide warmth through heating objects, not the air. Learn more about infrared radiant heaters in our blog.
How efficient are electric radiant heaters?
How energy efficient electric radiant heaters are depends primarily on the type of technology being used and the application layout. The most efficient electric heater will use technologies such as directional infrared heating meaning that the energy consumption is maximized to ensure heat both reaches and is absorbed by users. Additionally, proper layouts entail thoughtful placement for necessary heat coverage only where it’s needed so as not to waste additional energy on unused spaces. Read our Guide on Sustainable Design Principles to ensure the most efficient use of heaters in your outdoor space.
Can you leave an outdoor radiant heater on all night?
Bromic’s outdoor heaters are designed for intermittent use and are not typically meant to be left on continuously throughout the night. For safety and energy-efficiency reasons, we recommend turning off the heaters when not in use and using them as needed to maintain a comfortable outdoor environment. If you require extended heating, consider using a timer or one of Bromic’s other various control options to regulate the heater’s operation based on your specific heating requirements.
How durable are Tungsten Heaters?
Tungsten outdoor heaters are renowned for their durability and robust construction. They are built to withstand the rigors of outdoor use, including exposure to varying weather conditions and are engineered to provide long-lasting performance. Regular maintenance and proper care, such as cleaning and covering when not in use, can further extend their lifespan.

Bromic’s Tungsten Gas and Tungsten Portable heaters do require ventilation as potentially harmful biproducts are released in the air. Please refer to the corresponding Installation Manual to ensure proper clearances are met for safe operation.
