An infrared heater is a heating device that transfers heat using electromagnetic radiation. There are different types of infrared heaters such as metal shell, ceramic and quartz infrared heaters. Of all the types, quartz heaters are very popular these days. Although they have been on the market for over 2 decades, features like affordability, convenience, and easy maintenance are making today’s quartz heaters immensely popular.
Quartz is a hard, shiny stone used in electronic equipment, usually watches. The quartz bulbs used in infrared heaters are made by enclosing a tungsten wire resistor in a high-purity quartz shell. The electrical current heats the wire and the quartz crystal traps the heat inside and makes the wire even hotter. As a result, it begins to emit infrared light.
Quartz infrared heaters offer many advantages. Some of them are:
Even heat distribution
Infrared quartz rays directly heat objects or people. They do not circulate hot air unlike traditional heaters, which first heat the air in the room. They provide consistent heat from ceiling to floor evenly and consistently from wherever they are placed.
Quartz infrared heaters are affordable and cost less to install than other heating sources. The maintenance cost is also low. For example, the light bulbs used in these heaters last 3-5 years and cost only $5-15. These heaters also require fewer quartz bulb replacements.
Quartz electric heaters are more energy efficient as they heat objects directly and therefore take less time and consume less energy to heat the room. Most heaters will turn off once enough heat is provided, thus reducing electricity costs.
Quartz infrared heaters are durable and can last for many years. Even the maintenance required for these types of heaters is less. The bulbs of these heaters are made up of a high-quality quartz sheath in which the tungsten filament is placed, which makes them last between 5,000 and 7,000 hours.
safe and secure
Quartz infrared heaters have many safety features. They are available with a cabinet, which prevents pets and children in the house from accidentally burning themselves. Remember, the cabinet may not be hot to the touch, but it gives off a lot of heat. Quartz heaters are safe to use in a home because they do not burn oxygen or lower humidity levels like other heaters do. The light bulbs used in these heaters reduce positive ions in the atmosphere, which in turn improves blood circulation. Other reasons that make them safe are: no open flame, no moving parts (some have fans), and no leaking fuel lines. Quartz heaters use electricity as the heat source. For this reason, they do not release toxic gases and are more environmentally friendly.
It adapts to the decoration of any room.
Modern quartz infrared heaters are very attractive. They are deliberately designed to enhance their appeal and can fit into any room decor. They are portable and can be easily moved from room to room.
There are many manufacturers that offer quartz infrared heaters with various features. Take a look at all the features they offer and buy the one that best suits your needs.
