What is Infrared?
Infrared is a safe, natural way to heat objects. It's as natural as being heated by the sun itself! Applications for infrared can be found in many areas -- and more are discovered all the time - because of the therapeutic benefits it provides. Please see our section on Why Infrared for more information on how infrared radiation works.
Why is infrared considered "therapeutic?"
Infrared rays heat our body by a process called conversion. Through conversion, infrared heat can penetrate organic substances such as the human body without heating the air in between. You may notice a similar effect on partly cloudy days: when a cloud obscures the sun, you suddenly feel cooler, but the air temperature around you has not had time to be affected. The cloud blocked the sun's infrared rays from penetrating your body.
By using far infrared heat as opposed to traditional heating methods, you enable the heat to penetrate deeper into your body without the skin discomfort of heating pads, hot towels, and some pain relief gels/creams. However, less discomfort is just one of many benefits of far infrared heat therapy.
How safe are infrared heaters?
Infrared is a very safe form of heat (see Why Infrared) and RedCoreTM heaters in particular are designed for maximum safety. Our indoor heaters use no fuel or fire and cannot start a fire if knocked over. Your pets can climb on them without danger.
