Filtration Type

BioSmart® Breathe Easy Heaters:: Patented Bio-Smart® 5-stage Air Purification System. BioSmart® Classic & Basic Edition Heaters :: Lifetime Washable Passive Electrostatic Filter

Our own patented Bio-Smart® 5-Stage air purification system eliminates airborne viruses, bacteria, pathogens, VOCs. The filtration system is 100% efficient up to 500 square feet, and is separately controlled by an on/off toggle switch on the back of the unit. The heater can run with or without the air purification system.

5-Stage System:
  1. Electrostatic pre-filter
  2. UV light – germicidal disinfection
  3. TiO2 Plate – germicidal and hydrocarbon breakdown
  4. Negative Ion Generator
  5. Optional Gas Absorption Cartridge

The Passive Electrostatic Filters are made from fine spun plastics designed to allow for more air to pass between the spun fibers.

How it works: Air flows between the fine plastic edges of the spun plastic fiber and creates a static charge - much the same way shuffling your feet on the floor creates an electrostatic charge - which attracts smaller particles much more efficiently than a filter made from a different material and different design but with the same size fiber.

Because the filter does not need to be as dense to filter the same amount of particles, more air is allowed to pass between the spun fibers.

Infrared Heaters vs. Electric Fireplaces

While the Electric Fireplace with the wood mantle is a decorative, well-built alternative to a wood burning fireplace or pellet stove, it does not produce a heat wave that reaches the far infrared wavelength.

Why is that important? For two reasons: first, the Electric Fireplace will only heat up to 324 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! Second, far infrared heat feels significantly different from conventional radiant heat. With far infrared heat, you feel more comfortable in the heated spaces of your home. The air isn't dry and there are no pockets of cold spots in the room.

Why Does the BioSmart® Far Infrared Heater Cost More Than a Space Heater?

  • The BioSmart® Far Infrared Heater is a furnace in every respect. It has:
  • a heat exchanger
  • far infrared heating coils or tubes
  • a solid-state electronic control system
  • high and low limit switches to regulate temperature and air flow
  • a stylish cabinet
  • a sensitive thermostat with high voltage relays for turning the infrared tubes on and off
  • new, improved, whisper quiet fans - low rpm laminar flow ball-bearing fans which operate much quieter than conventional fan systems found in other heaters.

It is a revolutionary green technology product in every respect that produces high-quality far infrared heat at a fraction of the price of conventional portable heaters. A space heater only has the capacity to heat a small area because the heat stays where it was generated. The BioSmart® Far Infrared Heater, like a central heating system, will heat an entire area evenly and efficiently because the heat spreads rapidly through the entire room. Leave the door open and the heat will spread into the adjoining rooms as well. Furthermore, the BioSmart® Far Infrared Heater is safe. It will not start a fire or burn you if you get too close to it.

Because of the reduced energy consumption, and the unit's high level of safety and comfort, BioSmart® Far Infrared Heater users agree that it is the best value available.
