Infrared is a band of light that we perceive as heat. While we cannot see infrared heat, we can feel its effects. Infrared radiation represents over half of the energy emitted by the Sun and is divided into three segments: near, middle, and far. RedCore™ Infrared Heaters use far-infrared wavelengths to produce heat.
Infrared rays heat our body by a process called conversion. Through conversion, far infrared heat can penetrate organic substances such as the human body without heating the air in between.
Up to 80% of all the heat generated by infrared wavelengths is absorbed by the objects in their path, including humidity (ionized water molecules) and then reflected back into the room. Because humidity has a relatively even distribution from floor to ceiling, the result is a nearly perfect distribution of the heat. In comparison to conventional radiant heat sources, infrared heat is 35% to 50% more efficient.
Conventional heating systems heat the air. The heated air then warms our bodies. However, because the warm air dissipates and rises, much of it is wasted heating objects other than people and pets.
Red Core™ heaters emit a far infrared wave, similar to the warming rays produced by the sun. These waves then penetrate and warm the body. No heat energy is wasted warming the air.
Infrared heat feels better, and is better, for you! It may seem obvious, but a hospital would never put a conventional heat source (such as a standard electric space heater) in the incubation systems they use for newborns. Instead, they use infrared heat!
Why is infrared heat used in hospitals, nursing homes, physical therapy clinics, saunas and spas? Because of infrared's therapeutic qualities. Infrared wavelengths produce a warmer, softer heat that penetrates the body and increases your core body temperature, which increases blood flow and circulation. Because infrared heaters do not use up oxygen or dry out the air like conventional heat sources, the result is a nearly perfect distribution of safe, therapeutic heat.
Infrared is safe, versatile, and convenient. Just plug in any of the RedCore™ Infrared Heaters and in seconds you will feel soothing, penetrating, radiant soft heat.
Our RedCore™ heaters come with casters and never get hot: you can simply and safely move them from room to room.
Because RedCore™ heaters don't burn any fuels, like conventional heat sources, there are no expensive tanks to fill, no ventilation systems to install... and they're virtually maintenance free. Just plug in and enjoy the warmth!
