Quartz Infrared Heating Explained

Radiant heat at the speed of light: The revolutionary infrared short-wave technology of quartz radiant heaters instantly provide heat as soon as they are turned on. High-frequency heat waves penetrate the air without warming it, with no loss caused by draughts or from the heat rising. The result is energy-efficient, effective heat beamed precisely where it is needed - at people, objects and materials. Infrared radiation is a sub area of the light spectrum generated by the sun, This type of light is invisible to the human eye, it only serves to radiate heat. This means that infrared rays, responsible for the human sensation of heat, are positive rays and cannot be compared with UV or microwave radiation or with X-rays. Just look below at the many benefits this type of heating provides.
