Infrared Heaters vs. Electric Fireplaces

While electric fireplaces are a decorative alternative to a wood burning fireplace or pellet stove, they are not your most efficient heating option since they do not produce a heat wave that reaches the far infrared wavelength.

Why is that important? For three reasons:

  • Most electric fireplaces will only heat around 300 square feet. As an energy-smart consumer, you should consider this: for the same amount of electricity, you could be heating up to 1,000 square feet!
  • Far infrared heat feels more comfortable than conventional radiant heat. With far infrared heat, you feel warmer and more comfortable. Far infrared heat is a more penetrating heat that does not dry out the air, and heats very evenly from floor to ceiling, and wall to wall, so there are no uncomfortable cold pockets.
  • BioSmart® and CZ Infrared™ heaters have an electronic thermostat that allows the heater to cycle on and off to keep the temperature constant; whereas most electric fireplaces do not have thermostat regulation and runs constantly, eating up electricity until you turn them off manually.

Why are portable far infrared heaters better?

Electric IR HeaterFar infrared heating technology is the most efficient way to turn electrical energy into heat. The far infrared waves produced by the BioSmart® and CZ Infrared™ Portable Quartz Infrared Heaters have a shorter wavelength that enable them to travel faster, reaching a larger area. The far infrared waves penetrate and heat the people and objects in the room and are also absorbed by the water molecules in the air which keep the heat evenly distributed and provide soft, comfortable heat.

Your BioSmart® or CZ Infrared™ heater will save you up to 50% on your current heating bill. Using zoned heating with portable infrared heaters, you will no longer have to waste hundreds of dollars heating the unused areas of your home that you would normally heat with your energy-hungry central furnace. With a BioSmart® or CZ Infrared™ heater, you can enjoy the benefits of safe, soft, and therapeutic far infrared heat in the areas of your home you actually use. BioSmart® and CZ Infrared™ heaters will heat up to 1,000 square feet for only $1.20 per day (based on an 8-hour period, using the national average of 10 cents per Kw-hr).

The BioSmart® Breathe Easy Far Infrared Heater also comes with a 4-stage air purification system (and an optional 5th stage carbon gas absorption filter), for additional therapeutic benefits and protection against winter time colds and flu.

BioSmart® and CZ Infrared™ heaters have an unparalleled safety record. The cabinet stays at room temperature so it is completely safe around children and pets.

BIO-1500 Breathe Easy

BIO-1500 Classic and Basic

We purchased our first CZ Infrared™ 1500 watt heater last February for our new home. We really felt that it made a difference in our heating energy expenditure. We are thrilled. My brother-in-law bought two and he is looking to buy another. I just ordered another one for my son as a Christmas gift!
