Infrared Heating - Far Infrared Heating
The Theory of Infrared Radiation and the related technologies of Far Infrared Heat generation are new to many who are considering using far infrared heating sources. Infrared should not be confused with ultraviolet or any other form of dangerous radiation. Infrared heat is used in many different commercial and consumer applications such as incubators in nursery wards, far infrared saunas, and even far infrared clothing. As the sun warms the earth by infrared rays, the human body radiates heat in the form of far infrared waves.
Think about sunbathing at the beach. When the sun is out you can feel its heat warming your body, but if a cloud moves in and blocks the sun, you feel a slight chill. This is because although the air temperature itself has not had time to cool, the cloud is preventing the infrared rays of the sun from reaching you.
Infrared is a section, or "band" of invisible light found in the electromagnetic spectrum. It's a form of radiant heat that can also be called "infrared energy." About 80% of the sun's rays fall into this part of the spectrum and this is the part that warms your skin when the sun's rays hit you.
Far infrared is the region of the infrared band where wave frequencies measure between 5.5 - 15 microns. This is considered the region that is most harmonious with the human body and the most effective at producing heat. Far infrared heaters produce energy waves in this therapeutic far infrared range.
Because infrared space heaters are small and portable, you can take them into any room you are occupying. Often times we do not need to heat the entire home and with any of our heaters you will be amazed by how much money you can save on your energy bill.
By zone heating (using heaters only in occupied rooms), you can save over 50% on your bill by turning off your central furnace during the chilly mornings and evenings. Simply plug the heater in a standard outlet and enjoy!! Also, our heaters are basically maintenance free, allowing you to enjoy the warmth without any hassle what so ever!
Infrared space heaters have an exceptional safety record and come equipped with automatic shut off protection. The surrounding cabinet stays cool to the touch, making them totally safe for pets and small children. Need quiet heating so you can easily fall asleep at night? No problem, these heaters make hardly any noise at all.
The natural heat omitted by infrared heaters will gently increase the temperature of the surroundings. You will love all the benefits of using any one of our heaters and we guarantee you will be glad you got one from us!
