The short answer is yes, an infrared heater is a great cost-effective and more efficient way to heat your home. As a matter of fact, infrared heating is a better solution to heating your home than our traditional convection radiators. Infrared heaters using modern technology can directly heat individuals inside an area by using IR rays, providing you with focused heating.
How does infrared heating exactly work?
Infrared is part of the electromagnetic spectrum and it is invisible to the human eye. Infrared heaters use radiant heat and work by converting 98% of their electricity usage into heat. The heat produced by the heaters uses IR rays to bounce off the walls, objects, and people inside a room. This allows individuals inside a room or area to be directly warmed up, meaning that very little energy is being wasted. Whereas, traditional gas heaters warm the surrounding air inside a room, in which the heated air eventually rises and escapes. This results in you having to keep the heating on for long periods as the cycle repeats itself and a lot of energy is wasted. Infrared heaters can provide focused heating thus, no energy will be used to heat areas that don’t need to be heated. Only areas where individuals are present will be heated. Research suggests you could save up to 60% on your energy bills by moving away from conventional heating systems and switching to infrared heating systems.
What are the different types of infrared heating for your home?
It delivers gentle heat that is effortlessly absorbed by our skin. Far infrared is perfect for indoor use where it can give a subtle heat that warms individuals on a deeper level. Us humans absorb far-infrared radiation remarkably well as our human bodies are made up of 80% of water which makes infrared waves act efficiently on this. Far infrared can be found in our Infrared Heating Panels, Glass Panels, and Heating Bars.
This is also known as shortwave infrared. Near-infrared produces a more powerful level of heat. This is ideal for outdoor use. This type of infrared heat is frequently accompanied by intense light. Near-infrared can be found in our Outdoor Patio Heaters.
