Full Answer

An infrared heater immediately produces strong heat and radiates it to everything in its path. There is no need to let the heater warm up because it produces full-power heat no matter how long it has been since it was last used. Also, drafts and wind do not affect the infrared heater’s heat distribution.

Infrared heaters do not produce carbon combustion or any other substances harmful to the environment. They additionally need little maintenance because they contain no moving parts.

Infrared heaters do not circulate dust, so they create a good heating source for individuals with asthma or allergies. They do not remove moisture from the air unlike conventional heaters; moisture removal from the air leads to itchy eyes, throat and other side effects. Infrared heat absorbs into muscle tissue and can improve muscle and joint flexibility, aid blood circulation and decrease swelling.

Infrared heaters are less hot than a conventional heater and are usually protected by a metal cover. This cover protects individuals from being burned by touching the surface.

An infrared heater can save an individual up to 30 to 50 percent on heating costs when used instead of a conventional heater. Infrared heaters operate silently, which is beneficial in any noise-sensitive location.

They also use much less energy than conventional heaters, especially when used in only the parts of the building that need heating.
