Hi All, Does anyone have experience with electric infrared heaters? We just purchased our first house which was abandoned for 1.5 years. The house has a walk-in basement and two floors with about 550 square feet of space per floor. We have a pellet stove for the main floor but we are trying to decide what to use to heat the basement so that the water pipes do not freeze. Our choice is to use an electric infrared heater to heat the space containing the pipes (all located in one area) or install a second pellet stove to heat the entire basement. The cost of another pellet stove is daunting but I am concerned about the safety of an electric heater on in the basement. I was originally hoping that the heat from the main floor pellet stove would be enough to keep the pipes from freezing but I have been told that is not the case. Do people use electric infrared heaters to prevent pipes from freezing? What about Kerosene heaters? We don't use the basement for anything other than storage and laundry. I don't know of it makes a difference as far as freezing/bursting but I recently replaced all the copper piping with PEX tubing (I used SharkBite/GatorBite couplings and it worked great). Thanks for any advice.
