All Infrared Heaters Are Not Created Equal

As infrared heaters become more popular we have seen tons of infrared heaters pop up all over the internet. A true infrared heater has only a few main components to convert electric energy to heat energy. Here is an example on how a true infrared heater works:

When an infrared heater is turned on the infrared heating elements or infrared tubes use the electricity to heat themselves to a very high temperature depending on the size and wattage or the infrared element itself. these infrared tubes or elements are located in what is known as a heat chamber. The heat chamber is usually (and most efficiently) lined with copper plating to trap the heat inside and prevent heat from escaping. The heat chamber should be shaped in a S shape with the heating chamber located in the middle of the S. A strong fan located at the bottom of the S shaped chamber will force the heat out the top of the S shaped chamber often call the exhaust port. When the fan pulls in the air from the room the air is passed over the infrared heating elements inside the copper chamber heating the air on average to between 160 and 200 degrees. The warm air is then forced out of the heat chamber into the room.

Heaters that claim to be true infrared heaters that use coil or PTC elements are not true infrared heaters. A true infrared heater will not dry out or destroy humidity in the air. A coil type element is often used in space heaters as a main heat source. The problem with this is it will dry the humidity and leave the environment it is heating stuffy, dry, and uncomfortable. A good example of this would be like trying to heat a room with a hair dryer. It will get warm very quickly and a few minutes after the hair dryer is turned off it will become even colder than before because the humidity or water molecules in the air have been destroyed.

Infrared heaters do not heat the air. A true infrared heater will heat any object it comes in contact with including water molecules, carpet, furniture, and even the human body. Because the human body is over 75% water infrared heat will warm our bodies similar to the rays of the sun without the damaging UV rays.

An excellent reason why infrared heaters are so energy efficient is because of the objects they heat. When an object in a room is heated by infrared heat and object can no longer take in more heat it will start to give off the heat it has absorbed turning object in a room basically into heaters themselves.

Infrared heat has also been used for many years to assist in therapy of all sorts of medical conditions such as:

Asthma, bronchitis (cleared up).
Rheumatoid arthritis (7 out of 10 cases resolved in one clinical trial).
Benign prostatic hypertrophy (reduced).
Cancer pain (greatly relieved pain in later stages).
Cirrhosis of the liver (reversed).
Chrone’s Disease (gone).
Cold hand and feet (a physical therapist discovered 20-50% improvement was maintained).
Cystitis (gone).
Duodenal ulcers (eliminated).
Compression fracture pain.
Gastritis (relieved).
Hemorrhoids (reduced).
Hepatitis (gone).
High blood pressure (in the case of a diabetic a systolic decrease from 180 to 125 +
concurrent weight loss).
Keloids (significantly softened and, in some cases, completely gone).
Leg ulcers (healed when previously static and resistant to other care).
Menopause.
Pain preventing sleep or limiting sleeping positions (relieved).
Post-surgical adhesions (reduced).
Radiation sickness (relieved signs and symptoms).
Sequel of strokes (Herniparesis relieved over time).

Although an infrared heater in your home is not going to treat or cure any medical conditions I am simply using this as example to show that infrared heat is a safe, clean, comfortable, energy efficient, and healthier way to heat your home.

Infrared Heaters Consumer Reports – Lifesmart Amish Infrared Heater Review

The LIFESMART Amish inspired power plus 1200 square foot 6 element infrared quartz heater boasts a top of the line design that offers more copper for greater heat transfer than any of the other leading infrared heaters. LIFESMART products are advertised as being smart for the consumer and smart for the planet.

The LIFESMART produces no emissions and is 90% efficient in the room its being used. This is compared to 60% efficiency that is produced in furnace heat by the time it reaches a room.

The LIFESMART is a portable heater and advertises to heat any area up to 1200 sq. feet (depending on how efficient the space is). The air emitted by this LIFESMART heater is evenly distributed, will not dry out, and is moved through a built-in lifetime air filter that destroys bacteria and other organisms.

It offers a consistent heat so that the temperature remains the same, without the loss of heat, from ceiling to baseboard. It will save on the heating bill as it will use up to 1500 watts of electricity, which is about the same as a hairdryer.

The LIFESMART power plus heater gets efficiency from the six infrared quartz elements rated at 25,000 hours. There are also four copper heat exchanges, three that wrap the quartz elements and one at the exit.

The efficient and innovative design allows for the absorption of infrared energy and the production and circulation of heated and purified air back into the room. One of the most efficient heaters on the market.

It has a soft touch LED control screen to change settings or offers a remote control so that temperature and fan changes can be made across the room for added convenience. Settings can also be put on a time frame, rather than temperature, not all infrared heaters offer this function.

Consumers also loved how quiet the unit was.

The complaints were that it did not heat up an area as large as it advertised or that users did not get the “infrared” feel from the infrared heater that they had hoped.
