INFRARED HEATING DEMYSTIFIED
SolaRay far infrared radiant panels provide a gentle and comfortable heat just like sunshine. Contrary to what many folks believe, heat does not rise! Hot air rises, which is why central forced air systems, baseboard or wall heaters using convective heating waste energy by creating hot air which rises to the ceiling then falls as cold air. SolaRay far infrared radiant panels do not rely on hot air, but rather directly heat people and objects in a room. What’s more they are safe and healthy – they promote dust, allergen, and bacteria-free air through avoiding the unpleasant dry breeze of convection heating.
Three Reasons Homeowners Love SolaRay Infrared Heating Panels
Enjoy Comfortable Heat
A Heating System That Matches Your Lifestyle
SolaRay panels work just like sunshine to gently warm people and objects in a room rather than the air in the room.
Infrared panels provide an even temperature throughout the room from floor to ceiling. No drafts or “cold spots”, just comfortable heat.
SolaRay panels are both ductless & fan-less, so they do not move air around your house the way central heating systems do. Infrared heat is not only good for your body, but also reduces dust, mites, bacteria, pollutants and allergens in your home.
Once SolaRay panels are turned on you feel the comfortable heat in just a few minutes. You can also turn them off just like a light when you leave a room. They are also completely silent. Compare that to your noisy furnace!
Affordable and Efficient
The Best of Both Worlds
When it comes to heating systems, we have done the research. While our panels aren’t the cheapest solution to install, they’re close! Over the 40 year lifespan of our panels though, they are a clear winning in the lifetime cost of ownership category.
That is a typical question homeowners face… but with SolaRay panels you don’t have to choose one or the other; you get both! SolaRay panels are only slightly less efficient than ducted heat pumps, but have a much lower product and installation cost which saves you thousands over the lifetime of the system as compared to nearly all other modern heat technologies.
With other heating systems, you will undoubtedly run into maintenance tasks and costs over the lifetime of your equipment. SolaRay panels require no maintenance, cleaning, nor are filters needed; thereby no maintenance costs either. Just reliable, comfortable heat anytime you like.

SolaRay II Panels
Infrared Radiant Heaters
2: Other Voltages Available | 208V & 277V
SolaRay-D Infrared Radiant Panels for Drop-In Ceilings
Ducoterra’s SolaRay-D panels are specifically designed for drop-in or t-bar ceilings in offices, commercial buildings, or homes. Unlike our SolaRay II panels, these cannot be surface mounted to a drywall ceiling or wall. The SolaRay-D is a 2 ft. x 4 ft. (23 ¾” x 47 ¾” x 1.0″) panel available in 120V, 208V, 240V, and 277V models with either 500 watts or 750 watts of heating power. The MSRP for our 500W panel is $385 and the MSRP of our 750W panel is $405. The SolaRay-D panels are designed to heat working spaces rapidly and efficiently by radiant heating. Like the sun, these panels will create a warm environment for all people and objects within line of sight of the panel surface.
As is shown in the pictures below, these panels have a 1” width compared to the ½” width of SolaRay II panels but use the same junction box attached to the back of the panel for connecting to electrical power. The panel has two 10” 12 AWG leads for connecting to standard #12 power supply with wire-nut inside the attached connection box. Additionally, SolaRay-D panels include wire mounting hangers for attachment above the plenum in drop-in ceilings for earthquake safety.
“Our customers have asked for a heating panel that could be easily installed in drop-in ceilings, and we listened” said Patrick Beebe-Sweet, CEO and Founder of Ducoterra. “But we didn’t stop there. Our new SolaRay-D panels are competitively priced against more industrial looking products while maintaining the visually attractive design of our SolaRay II panels our residential customers have come to love.”
SolaRay Panels In The Wild
Sharon and Steve recently completed the remodel of their magnificent three-story Northwest Hood Canal waterfront home. This home features a towering 20-foot-high wall of west facing living room windows with incredible water and mountain views. As you can imagine this home presented the owners with a unique challenge for heating and cooling. The solution was a hybrid heating system using a ductless heat pump to heat and cool both the living room as well as the master bedroom, and Ducoterra’s Far Infrared Radiant Panels mounted on the ceiling of all the other rooms, including three guest bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a family room.
The result: a hybrid heating system using these two efficient heating technologies succeeded. Sharon loves the way the panels are unobtrusive and barely visible as well as the gentle heating from Ducoterra’s panels. And, both are looking forward to the ductless system keeping them cool in the summer. Furthermore, Steve likes the fact that he can control the temperature of the heating panels in several of their infrequently used guest bedrooms and bathrooms, saving energy and lowering their heating bill.
Ducoterra’s SolaRay infrared heating panels are providing sun-like warmth and clean, silent, allergen-free heat for the children’s therapy facility. Founded in 1999, Jumping Mouse Children’s Center located in Port Townsend, Washington transforms children’s lives by providing expressive mental health therapy. Being a non-profit organization, Jumping Mouse needed a heating solution that was both safe and economical as every dollar is limited. Ducoterra’s radiant heat panels were a perfect fit, combining safe, clean heat while maximizing energy efficiency and their bottom-line.
Ducoterra supplied ten of its 750 watt SolaRay infrared heating panels to heat the new facility. These efficient radiant heat panels will save Jumping Mouse over $400 a year in heating costs and $14,000 over the lifetime of the facility. The SolaRay panels are safely on the ceiling, radiating sun-like warmth and providing healthy, silent, and comfortable heating for the children and the therapists, while using 35% less energy than standard wall heaters and 50% less than baseboard heaters.
The Lummi Housing Authority built 16 new homes for their tribal members and Ducoterra in partnership with Heating Green, delivered 182 SolaRay panels that will save the Lummi’s over 63,000 kW and $6,300 each year. These 3, 4, and 5 bedroom homes were required to be affordable, energy-efficient homes, with a low-cost heating system requiring only minimal maintenance. Usually, having both an affordable and energy-efficient heating system is not achievable, but Ducoterra’s SolaRay radiant heat panels met the challenge perfectly with our Lifetime warranty, high-comfort radiant heat, excellent energy efficiency, and maintenance-free operation.
The Lummi Nation is a nationally recognized leader in tribal self-governance and education, the third largest tribe in Washington State, serving over 5,000 members on the Lummi Reservation, and with an ongoing investment in tribal economic development.
What Customers Say About Ducoterra
Panels are nearly invisible
Douglas Landsem / Architect
The SolaRay panels look similar to an acoustic panel. Most people don’t notice them which is nice. We’ve promoted them quite a bit
Works great with solar
Perfect retrofit heating for my Berkeley house. Replaced the gas wall furnace when we installed solar, and heated the whole house with less energy than we used to heat one room. If you have solar or really cheap electricity you should seriously consider as the cost is significantly less than a hydronic radiant system. I did my whole PV array plus the Ducoterra panels for less than the cost of a boiler, pump and tubing, not to mention the much easier install.
Easy installation. Helpful advice. This form of heating system is rarely found where I am and builders who have seen the panel are intrigued. Works flawlessly. Was the right choice for my needs.
