WHAT IS INFARED HEATING?
To understand the principle of radiant heat, imagine that you are standing outside on a cold, clear day. The ground below you is frozen, but when the sun hits your face you feel warm, despite the low air temperature.
Conventional heating - inconvenient and wasteful!
Typical convection heaters can be noisy, inefficient, expensive and unsightly. They warm a room by intensely heating the air near them, relying on that hot air to move to the top of the room before cooling and falling back to a height where it can be felt.
This results in a stuffy, uncomfortable atmosphere with chilly drafts. It promotes heat loss through windows, walls, ceilings and roofs. And wasted energy is wasted money.
Infrared heaters are very economical and very practical to use and install. They do not require skilled maintenance and repair and have a great service life. Infrared heat transfer method implies heating the surfaces (floors, walls, furniture) in heating zone, rather than air, as in the case of convective heating, which therefore ensures that there are no draught and dust depositions. Heat is stored at the bottom, not under the ceiling.
Radiant heat creates a feeling that the ambient temperature is somewhat higher (by 3-4°C), than it actually is, which allows a human to feel comfortable at lower temperatures.
The infrared heater does not dry the air, do not burn oxygen and does not raise dust, and the modern design allows it to fit into any interior. IR heaters work silently and without vibration. The absence of combustion products eliminates the need for additional exhaust ventilation systems. Since there is no need to transport air in order to increase the efficiency of heat transfer, therefore, dust and other atmospheric pollutions do not circulate in the heated premises.
