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

I recently purchased the 1500P Heater for my 2 bedroom rental apartment with approximately 1000 sq. ft. I am 80 years old and play Pool at the Senior Center. About a month ago I walked in and saw two of the 1500 models in our large hall and one in the pool room/office areas. They told me they saved over $8oo dollars on the gas heating bill the first full month of operation. I bought the reference model and am very happy to say that it is everything you say it is. I am extremely happy with it. Thanks for making such a fine heating unit.
