This video discusses infrared and radiant heater clearances when installing Big Ass Fans.
Is the place where you’re mounting a fan near an infrared or radiant heater? If yes, it’s recommended that the fan be mounted according to the following safety guidelines.
- The fan should be mounted outside of the clearances recommended by the manufacturer of the heater and at a height equal to or above the shielding on the heating element.
- Also, the controller must be mounted on the opposite side of the heater.
Are you mounting the fan below the heater shielding? If yes, it’s important to make sure all fan elements are located outside of the clearances recommended by the manufacturer of the heater. And the controller must be remotely mounted.
The installation manual for the specific model of heater will typically provide the minimum clearances to combustibles. In addition to the specific requirements for infrared and radiant heater clearances included in this video, be sure to adhere to all general guidelines when installing a Big Ass Fan.
