Is Infrared Heating Safe?

 Back to FAQs

Infrared heaters are becoming a very popular heater in the UK. Old style convection heaters like radiators heat the air in a room but infrared heaters warm objects, such as people, directly. This makes them very efficient.

Infrared heat is a type of electromagnetic radiation but infrared heating is 100% safe. The word radiation often worries people and some forms of electromagnetic radiation can be dangerous. These types such as ultraviolet and x-rays are harmful. But visible light (that we see with our eyes) is also a type of electromagnetic radiation. Visible light is 100% safe in the same way that infrared light is!

Infrared is actually the type of heat we receive from the sun. Infrared heaters are therefore a very effective heating mechanism. Infrared heating systems are increasingly becoming a popular heating solution in the UK. Shortwave infrared heat is very useful for ourdoor infrared heaters and longwave heat panels which emit no light are often used indoors.
