Solenco GPH2500 Far Infrared Heater

Traditional heaters work through convection and use a lot of energy to gradually heat the air within the room before you feel cozy and warm. Our GPH2500 infrared heater uses energy-saving far-infrared technology which instantly gives off a steady stream of heat particles up to 5m in a 130’ radius so that you will feel warm due to the precise far-infrared beam heating your body directly. No more energy wastage and no more waiting to feel warm!

Using Far Infrared Ray (FIR) as a Heater

Far Infrared Ray (FIR) energy is by far the best form of energy for natural healing and for maintaining our bodily vitality without any side effects. Wavelengths of 0.8 to 1.4 microns are the optimum energy that is readily absorbable by the human body making these the ideal outdoor heater. Longwave Infrared (also referred as IR-C or Far infrared) has wavelengths anywhere between 3,0 – 1000 μm. The Solenco GPH2500 produces wavelengths up to 4,0 μm thus classifying it within the Far Infrared heating category. 

Health benefits of far infrared light therapy

  • Promoting wound healing and tissue repair
  • Stimulating healing of ulcers and slow-healing wounds
  • Improving hair growth
  • Controlling psoriasis
  • Relieving pain
  • Improving skin appearance
  • Reducing the side effects of cancer treatments such as oral mucositis

Aside from these, infrared therapy helps reduce sun damage, improve joint health, reduce scars, prevent chronic and recurring cold sores, and relieve inflammation.

Energy Efficient Heater
