Infrared heat is a non-conduction based heating source, meaning that it does not depend on flowing through and heating the air, in order to heat a room. Instead, thanks to its shorter wave length, infrared heat penetrates solid objects and folks in a room to heat them without delay. This works similar to the sun’s rays, providing a quicker and more efficient way to heat any room in comparison to more conventional heating systems.
Infrared heat not only acts to heat the air in a room, but can also be implemented as heat treatment. Infrared is generally catagorized into one of three types ; near-, mid-, and far- infrared. These classifications are primarily based on wave length. CZ Infrareds line of heaters use far-infrared waves or thermal infrared in order to produce heat. This type of infrared also produces the most advantageous therapeutic effects.
Many of these therapeutic effects comes from far-infrared’s ability to effect water molecules both in the air and in the body. These molecules absorb the waves and convert it into thermal energy that can be used as heat.
Using conventional heaters not only uses more energy and is more expensive to run but they’re also hot to the touch and can cause burns or fires. Because standard heaters don’t warm the water molecules in the air they don’t heat the air as quickly and do not penetrate the body until the room is heated. This makes typical heaters use more energy than infrared heaters to heat an area.
With infrared heat, these problems do not exist. Once you turn on your CZ Infrared heater, you’ll feel heat almost instantly. And because the room does not have to be heated for you to maintain a snug temperature; infrared heaters waste little energy.
To further understand the difference between convection heat and infrared ( glowing ) heat, consider if you’re standing in a room in front of a window and the sun comes out from behind a cloud and shines into the window. Although the air temperature in the room has not changed, you instantly feel the heat of the sun as its glowing heat penetrates your body quicker than what the ambient air is able to heat you.
However , the sun also emits dangerous UV rays which can cause damage to the skin and eyes. Fortunately , with CZ Infrared heaters you will not have that issue. Due to the infrared wavelength, these heaters don’t cause any harm to the body. In fact, infrared heat produced by CZ Infrared heaters may provide numerous healing benefits for the body. Keep in mind that this would possibly not be true for ALL infrared heating systems. Some may use wavelengths which can produce dangerous radiation.
Additionally CZ Infrared heaters heat uniformly from floor to ceiling. We all take for granted that it’s going to be warmer close to the ceiling than it’s going to be at the floor where we need it the most. Infrared heat uses the water molecules in the air and heats them up. Since water stays hotter longer than air this helps the room to stay hotter longer and the heat is not lost as fast due to poor insulation in widows and doors.
The CZ Infrared heater doesn’t destroy the humidity in the air, it preserves it and utilizes it for better heating. Conventional heaters typically dry out the air making it dry and static, which can irritate the skin and the respiratory tract, increasing your chance of getting a cold or flu. Also because infrared heat does not have to reach extremely high flammable temperatures in order to heat effectively, it doesn’t burn up the oxygen in the room like most traditional heaters do. Lower oxygen concentration can make one feel knackered, sleepy, and more subject to illness. And it can be outright dangerous in closed rooms without ventilation!
