How do IR Heaters work?

Infrared heaters work by converting electricity into radiant heat. It is the same form of heat emitted by your own body. It is the most basic form of heating known to man. Infrared is the direct transfer of heat to the object (you and the room around you) without heating the air in between. 

 What is the difference between infrared and radiant heating?

 Infrared heating and radiant heating are the same. In fact, the proper term is infrared radiant heating. Radiant heating applies to any heat transfer method where energy travels directly from the source tot he object being heated. Microwave heating is a form of radiant heating. Radiant heating does not require any other material to transfer energy from an emitting source to a body to be heated. 

Why should I switch to Infrared Heating? 

 You’ll save enormous amounts of money by switching to infrared heating, as it takes less energy to heat objects than it does to heat the air. Infrared heaters are extremely energy efficient converting 98% of their energy into heat, so there’s very little that gets wasted. There is zero maintenance the lamps last 5000 hours. They save space as well as they can be mounted high on walls or even the ceiling. As a result, you don’t need to worry about placing your furniture around your heaters, which therefore free up your entire floor space. As infrared is a naturally occurring type of heat, they’re incredibly beneficial for your health, especially for those who suffer from respiratory issues. The lack of humid air also prevents the build up of mould and damp on your walls.
