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

What we love about the [in-wall heating] system for our HOT YOGA STUDIO:

Healthy heat - really feel the difference in your [yoga] practice as your body warms up and your practice is gentler.

Comfortable heat - Never feels overwhelming or asphyxiating. Even when we are up into the mid-90's, the heat is comfortable and easy to breathe.

Invisible - because of the way we placed the heaters, the room is even with no trace of where the heat is coming from. There are no warm drafts blowing down on anyone and the entire room is warm - no cool spots.
