The Energy Efficiency of High Intensity Infrared Heaters

The larger the space the more intense each single infrared heater is required to be. In certain environments, such as large warehouses, numerous infrared heaters are necessary to keep the entire area warm to protect the workers and the goods being stored there. So not only would a warehouse company in a cold climate need to buy high intensity infrared heaters but they have to buy multiple ones. One would assume that this would end up being a financial strain from an energy perspective, but that is not in fact the case.

The Mellow but Effective Low Intensity Tube Heaters

The formal definition of “intensity” involves great power, strength or energy that can be measured in degrees. Intensity is applicable to feelings, thoughts and physical actions, such as the way the word is used within the context of infrared heaters. There are high intensity and low intensity infrared heaters that are made in all of the classic infrared styles known by the industries that purchase them. A major style is the low intensity tube heater, which is meant to warm up individuals in a closer sort of space or heat up a larger space to a lesser extent. The word “intensity” is, however, still appropriate because regardless of the degree, the heat generated by an infrared heater is intense.

Ceramic Heaters: Radiating Infrared Heat

Not all infrared heaters look like lines of glowing red lava held within glass tubes in a heating element. This can be an intimidating thing to look at, let alone allow to heat up the room you are in. However, intimidating or not, the way that an infrared heater warms up a room is impressive and thorough. Radiating heat like the sun radiates with rays, infrared heaters fill the room with warmth in a uniform pattern without the aid of a fan to carry the heated molecules. This means there are no cold spots in a room being heated by an infrared heating system.

Infrared Heaters Companies: Your Best Angle

Every company chooses an angle to focus their advertising strategies on, and if it is going to be a successful campaign it needs to be birthed from the needs of the customer. For infrared heating companies, the customer and their needs may vary depending on which market the company is targeting. Because infrared heaters may be utilized in residential environments, commercial environments and industrial environments, there are a plethora of specifics that infrared manufacturers might focus their advertising on. However, there is one major market element that will appeal to all three contexts. The increase in cost of energy sources makes heating a problem for individuals and companies alike.

Far Infrared Heaters: The Sauna Treatment

Far infrared heaters are an up and coming style of infrared heaters. Producing long wave radiation instead of the short wave radiation emitted by most radiant heaters, far infrared heaters do not become hot to the touch, which is beneficial on numerous levels. Because the low watt ceramic panels do not heat up, there is no emission from dust or chemical residue that may fall on the surface of the infrared heater. Therefore it is a perfect style of space heater for those with intense allergies. Far infrared heaters are also used on a larger scale in the spa industry as one source of heat for saunas.

The Ups & Downs of Radiant Heaters

I have a friend who lives in a house with a radiant heater in every room, which sometimes can seem too warm. Such a thing only exists because his landlord controls the temperature the radiant heaters are set at while not living in an apartment in the house he is the landlord of. As a result, my friend’s house is toasty to the point where when I come over I compare it to a sauna. Objectively, having a central heating system with radiant heat at the core is delightful and has numerous attributes but under certain circumstances, anything good can be stifling.

Tube Heaters: How to Keep a Chicken Warm

while also keeping them health.

Tube heaters harness infrared energy by way of a heating element and a reflective surface. The heat produced from this energy is intensified when its structure, such as a tube, is built from a conductive material. Efficiency defines these infra red heaters because they put out so much heat with so little energy, which is why they are so popular in agricultural contexts. For a poultry farmer, a warm and bright environment means consistent production of eggs and therefore a consistent income.

The Marvelous Space Heater

The charm of hardwood floors and fancy molding in the corners of the ceilings lured me into renting an apartment in a historical district last year. When winter hit though, I was no longer bewitched by my quaint home; my heat bill was through the roof and my apartment always seemed to be freezing. That was when I discovered and fell in love with infrared space heaters. Portable and affordable, I was able to buy one and carry it around to whatever room I was in, staying comfortably warm at a fraction of the cost of cranking my heat.

Garage Heater: Holding Up Well

Some people may consider a garage as simply the building where they park their car, which allows them to avoid exposure to harsh weather and feel safe. To others, a garage is a haven where they can practice hobbies such as woodworking, mechanics and other such activities that require a roof and some warmth, but not much else. When the chill penetrates the garage, owning an infrared garage heater comes in very handy. Not only does such a heater operate with minimal energy consumption but also emits no damaging fumes that hurt the environment. It is also cost efficient, which is always a good thing for a long term owner of a product.

Infrared Heaters: The Way to Save

Saving money is something everyone gets excited about these days, particularly because of the current economic climate. Industrial companies, commercial companies, offices and home owners save money in various ways, depending on their circumstances. However, one way individuals in each of these categories can benefit from a sustainable and low-cost endeavor is by purchasing infrared heaters for their heating needs. Not only will the choice of an infrared heating system help the contents of people’s wallets, but it also keeps the air cleaner since infrared heaters emit zero toxins into the atmosphere, unlike some other heating systems.

The Warehouse Heater of Industry

My brother has worked in a clothing distribution warehouse for the last two years. The work he does is considered mundane, although he gets a decent paycheck for his trouble and has always told me the environment is comfortable. I asked him how a giant warehouse, full of pallets and shelves and unending stacks of boxes could be comfortable. He told me one reason was the temperature. Especially during the cold months, the tall ceilings and wide corridors of a warehouse require a heating system that keeps things warm but not suffocating, since the workers are in perpetual motion. That is why infrared heaters are the ideal solution.

Door Heaters: A Heat Blasting Good Time

Ever feel that blast of hot air the instant you walked into a grocery store or mall during the winter months? I have always been tempted to go in and out and back in again to experience that encompassing warmth as often as possible. This common occurrence, particularly when you live in a chilly winter state like Michigan, is thanks to an ingenious infra red heater called a door heater. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, depending on the building and where they will be mounted, which means the direction of a heat wave when entering a building is always a surprise.

Quartz Heaters: The Safeguard

Safety is an important aspect to consider when buying any product; it is particularly important when buying a heating mechanism, which has the propensity for causing fires. Therefore, the search for the safest heating system is one to take seriously. Infrared heaters are well-known for being safety conscious products with a variety of different aspects and accessories geared toward providing an efficient and effective heating system while diluting the danger possibilities to minimal levels. One type of infrared heater is specifically designed to be safe enough to use consistently in residential areas; the quartz heater.
