agree  Björn Vrooman: IR heaters after first mention; also agree about getting rid of "with." Cf https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrared_heater // We may have a misunderstanding: I said I've only ever heard of heating systems/heaters, not heatings (in the plural!).

  -> Thanks for the support and suggestion! The H in HVAC is for "heating." A heater is a single unit. In this case, it's more of a concept ("xxx heating is the future") than a concrete system or unit. (And never pluralized - no "heatings"!)

agree  Heike Holthaus: With Björn on the "heater" not "heating"

  -> Thanks, Heike.

agree  Eleanore Strauss: Totally agree with you on the heating concept. Interesting concept of space "heating"... the individual heater is generally referred to as a space heater.
