Infratech heating systems are made from recyclable materials and operate with zero greenhouse emissions, odors or ultraviolet light. Infrared or radiant energy is the most practical way to add warmth to spaces like patios, terraces, verandas, enclosed areas, or any indoor or outdoor setting where heated air cannot easily be contained and re-circulated. ABOUT INFRARED ENERGY.A heated quartz element emits a safe, clean wavelength of light that is only absorbed by solid objects, transferring heat directly to a person, table or floor rather than heating the air. For this reason, infrared heat can be distributed very evenly, and will not simply “blow away” in windy or drafty conditions. Infratech medium wave quartz element heaters emit a barely discernible, pleasing glow that will not affect the ambience of your gathering – unlike competitive short-wave or halogen electric heaters that produce a very harsh glare or bright-colored light. ENJOY CLEANER, GREENER HEAT.In today’s world, protecting our environment has become a top priority. With Infratech heaters, you can entertain outside without producing the negative environmental effects created by most gas-fired heaters or outdoor fireplaces. Traditional gas burners are often less than 50% efficient and emit carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases as a by-product of combustion and burning fuel. By contrast, our energy-efficient infrared fixtures convert over 90% of input energy directly into radiant heat, and operate for just pennies per hour. Infratech electric infrared heaters are safe for use outdoors or indoors, operate silently, emit no greenhouse gases or unpleasant odors and do not require ventilation. In addition, Infratech comfort heater components and packaging are completely recyclable.
