Conventional Heaters vs. Far Infrared Heaters

 

An infrared heater, also known as an FIR (far infrared) heater, operates differently from a conventional space heater in that the infrared heat waves heat the body and objects of the room directly. The heat stays evenly distributed and the room retains the heat longer. In contrast, conventional heaters heat by first raising the temperature of the air within the room, which in turn heats you. The hot air rises and quickly dissipates out poorly insulated areas and cracks around doors and windows and results in uneven heat distribution, cold pockets and a greater concentration of heat near the ceiling rather than where you are down below. The hot air is also very drying and irritating to the mucous membranes of the respiratory passages and the skin.

A conventional heater has to work much harder to maintain the room at the desired temperature and cannot heat as large an area as an infrared heater can. Conventional space heaters usually operate at temperatures of 180° to 220°F. Most people cannot tolerate these high temperatures for very long and it causes the mucous membranes to dry out. This is why water or steam is introduced in the form of air humidifiers. Patients normally use FIR saunas at between 100° and 130°F. This feels like a warm, dry room and the perspiration characteristics are significantly improved. Not only does the perspiration contain more toxins and less water, but also more toxins are expelled through the kidneys, liver, and even hair due to resonant absorption.

Buyer’s Guide

All of us volunteer at Halfway Home Pet Rescue want to express sincere appreciate for your kind and generous gift of a heater for our stray cat intake center. We had heard so much good about your heater and really wanted one, but simply did not have any money. Your gift of a heater has saved many cat lives this past winter as well as making our volunteers more comfortable in their work. We sincerely thank you and bless you in the name of the cats we serve in Caribou and its surrounding communities. It you notice, Caribou, Maine is located right at the top of Maine and is often mentioned on the national weather channel as the coldest spot in the U.
