How Are Infrared Heaters Beneficial To Your Health?

Keeping your house warm during cold winter months is important, but keeping your family healthy has to be priority.

Fireplaces are basically pollutant machines, while gas-fuelled forms of heating can contribute to carbon monoxide poisoning.

There are many different types of heating, but not all of these will provide the same benefits as infrared heaters. Adding a heater that uses infrared technology to heat your home or patio area provides many health benefits that other heat sources simply do not. But just how healthy are they? And how exactly do they work?

How It Works               

An infrared heater uses infrared radiation to supply heat. The heater transfers the heat to bodies of lower temperature – it does not heat the air! No contact is necessary for this, as the heat is transferred through invisible wavelengths.

That might seem a little confusing. It basically means that the infrared heater will not heat the air around you, but will transfer the heat onto you. This is useful for heating busy spaces – like the kitchen, living room or patio – without pumping precious hot air into an empty area. A heater using infrared technology will save you time and energy costs.


Now that you understand a little how infrared heaters work, it is time to focus on some of the benefits…

Zero Emissions
A wood burning stove would undoubtedly contribute to keeping the house warm, but it will also contribute to the invading carbon monoxide and toxic pollutants. With infrared heating there are no carbon monoxide emissions and it does not require any chemicals to operate.

Clean Air
Wood burning stoves and gas heaters release a series of pollutants and VOCs into the air. Luckily an infrared heater has no particulates, so your home is safe. 

Infrared heating will also not agitate the air like a regular fan forced heater would. With convection, air is circulated around the area and many harmful particles are constantly pushed around the room. This promotes humid, dirty air being circulated around the home forever. A heater that uses infrared wavelengths doesn’t require circulating possibly allergen laden air to generate warmth.

Infrared heating also does not affect oxygen levels. Some heater, such as oil-filled heaters, will actually deplete the oxygen in a room.

Stop Mould
Using an infrared room heater can help prevent condensation within a home’s infrastructure. That means less mould and mildew will be able to grow.

Boost The Immune System
Human skin is made for infrared heat. An electric infrared heater provides heated wavelengths that you skin absorbs naturally. It aids in detoxifying and can help bolster the immune system of those who use it. Infrared heat is even used to help cancer patients, people suffering from gout and sciatica.
