Infrared heat is quiet and draft free. In “clean room” applications no dust is blown about. In showroom and auditoriums, no noisy fans or air noise disturbs conversation.
The radiant "sun-like" warmth keeps people comfortable at lower air temperatures with resulting fuel cost savings.
Reduced Heat Loss
As infrared heats "from the floor up", heat stratification to the ceiling is greatly reduced.
There is no need to employ downdraft fans to recover lost heat at the ceiling.
Since air temperatures are lower, particularily at the ceiling, with infrared heat, transmission losses to the outside are far lower, thereby reducing fuel costs while maintaining people comfort.
In large buildings such as warehouses, where large doors are frequently used, infrared heat results in rapid heat recovery and therefore less fuel wastage.
The large heat reservoir of the building floor and building contents quickly reestablishes worker comfort even while air temperatures remain unchanged.
