HEALTHY, ECO-FRIENDLY HEATING
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, INFRARED HEATING PANELS ARE 100% CLEAN
Welltherm Infrared Heaters can be used on a standard home electrical installs, on a simple 13amp plug or wired directly into your home on a thermostat for complete temperature control, saving money and providing clean heating.
WHAT IS INFRARED RADIATION?
Infrared energy is the type of pure radiation which is absorbed by objects without having any physical contact in the first place with the source of heat or with the air within the objects and the source. Infrared waves are the ones which lie within the visible light and microwaves of the electromagnetic spectrum. The best example of infrared heating is the sun. The sun produces infrared radiation and these invisible rays are converted into heat when they are absorbed by objects (fixed or non-fixed) –having traveled through cold and dark space. Apart from the sun, infrared is the heat which we normally feel from fire, or even a warm sidewalk which absorbed the infrared warm waves. Have you ever thought why you feel cold in the winter even though it has 17 oC and in the summer you feel warm with the same temperature? This happens because the infrared radiation heats the objects and not the air. The heat is absorbed by the objects and is released towards our bodies.
IS INFRARED RADIATION SAFE FOR ME?
Many people immediately think that radiation is harmful for humans but there is beneficial radiation apart from the dangerous one. Infrared Radiation works similarly to the sun rays but without the harmful UV rays for the skin. It is not ultraviolet (this causes sunburns) or atomic (nuclear weapon) radiation. Infrared Radiation is the type of energy which heats an object or a person and not the air within a room. Even our bodies radiate infrared energy out through the skin at around 3 ~ 50 microns. How harmful can this be? In addition, it does not emit any gasses to the environment or make the air dusty and stuffy. Your walls dry out completely and cold spots can be reduced significantly. Moreover, any mold growth is prevented. In contrary to what someone may first think, Infrared Radiation is even healthier than any other conventional heater since it has been proved that it has many health benefits when used -among others, for medical purposes such as Passive Cardiovascular Conditioning Effect, Outstanding Caloric Consumption and Weight Control, Musculoskeletal Cases, Coronary Artery Disease, Arteriosclerosis and Hypertension.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INFRARED HEATING PANELS AND CONVENTIONAL HEATERS?
They operate in a completely different way. An infrared heating panel does not heat the air but directly warms the persons and the objects which are inside the room. This makes the infrared heating panel more efficient because the heat is immediately absorbed by everyone and everything within the heating range without any heating energy loss in the process. Just because of that, the persons within the range feel the warmth even if winds come inside the room from an open window.
Compared to a conventional heater which makes the air stuffy, an infrared heating panel keeps the air clean and comfortable without mixing the air with dust. Your walls remain dry and any mold growth is prevented as well as there is reduction of cold spots within the room.
Infrared Heating Panels do not stir up or circulate any dust particles like a conventional radiator system and are thus the ideal heating solution, especially for people with allergies. The infrared heating principle provides optimal room conditions and is furthermore completely odourless and noiseless.
IS IT EFFECTIVE? IF SO, WHAT IS THE COST?
Infrared heating panels have an extremely high efficiency compared to conventional heaters and they are able to convert close to 90% of the electricity into actual heat with minimal energy loss and since heat is produced through electromagnetic waves, the productivity rate of heat is almost 100%. When combined with a thermostat, the energy consumption reduces radically by putting itself into standby mode when reaches the ideal room temperature. Since a person can feel the warmth within 5 minutes after turning the heating panel on, it is highly advised to be turned off when leaving the room. This makes it even more efficient, economic as well as environmental and user friendly product.
You can combine Welltherm Infrared Heaters with eco-electricity from our renewable energies, or our voltage optimised system, to heat in a climate and environmentally-friendly manner. The result is zero CO2 emissions when operating the panels. The system achieves excellent efficiency levels as almost all of the energy is converted into heat.
