When you are trying to implement heating solutions in your home and you start to consider your options, you actually have quite a lot of them, like gas heaters, conventional electric heaters, and of course, infrared heaters.

Unlike most types of heaters, infrared heaters don’t actually heat the air of your room: they heat you and any other person or object within their range, making considerably faster.

But, how do infrared heaters work?

Infrared heaters transfer heat via infrared or radiant energy, which means that they warm up your room with the radiation that emanates from them. But we are not talking about toxic or hazardous radiation, we are just talking about a type of light that humans cannot see and is harmless.

Many people consider infrared or radiant energy to be the most practical way to warm up your spaces, whether they are indoor rooms, kitchens, and living rooms, or outdoors areas such as patios, terraces and verandas.

A frequent doubt

Users often wonder whether or not the heat can be “blown away” by strong, sudden air drafts.

When it comes to Infrared Infratech Technology the answer is no. Because of its very nature, infrared heat only interacts with solid objects, making it effectively immune to air drafts, as it doesn’t need the air to be transferred.

All of this information leads to one important question…

We’ll give you a quick and to the point list about why you should seriously consider them:
