Gallery G2T Infra Red Heating Design & Installation For the Home & Business.
The latest infrared heating solutions are featured in this section. Recent studies have revealed that far infrared rays oscillate at a wavelength of 6 to 14 microns on the light spectrum. This played an important role for the formation and growth of living things. Therefore, this is the reason why far infrared rays are also known as “biogenetic rays”. All living things on Earth are mainly composed of water and proteins. Water molecules are always oscillating and at 8-10 micron wavelength, the “resonance” occurs. This causes the activation of water into hydrogen ion and hydroxide at high speeds(10-12 seconds).
Benefit to the Human Body
If this occurs in human cellular tissues, the metabolism of cell and excretion of residues from cells or nutrition are enhanced. This promotes growth in living things. Because infrared rays from the sun emit at 3.5 to 10 microns of wavelength then you will understand why at 6 to 14 microns an infra red heating system will have great benefit to the human body. Human beings emit far infrared rays. Its effect on tissues promotes healthy circulation of blood and body fluids. The effect of this, is to enhance the distribution of oxygen and nutrition to every part of the body.
Hospitals and the equine industry have used infrared for years and to tremendous Bio genetic effect. The use of bedding made from ‘Bio Ceramics’ technology is also much better for us. This is because it provides you with better and sound sleep, and faster recovery from fatigue.
Facts on Infrared
Far Infrared rays are part of sunlight that we can see in visible rays from the sun. They are also in the form of invisible rays beyond the red in the spectrum ( See Spectrum Image below). Chestnuts in an earthen , stone or unglazed pot will bake softer than when in an iron pot. Therefore, this soft baking is an effect of the far infrared rays produced when ceramics, stone or the like is heated. Ancient Rome new about the benefits of Infrared taking advantage of the suns rays in Bath houses and training halls. Infra red heats does not heat the air directly. It heats you, the room fabric, and furniture through absorption. Most importantly, the heat is then slowly released into the room.
Energy Saving Benefits
This means that once the fabric has heated up and begins to release the heat into the room, your heaters can switch off. Their carbon material will continue to emit heat out for some time whilst off. In effect, the room takes much longer to lose heat too. The direct heating nature of infrared means that you can heat for less time per m2 than you do with an electric and or gas convection heating. Using a control system with your Infrared heating also allows you a zonal heating system. The benefit of that is that you can switch off heaters in other rooms yourself or ideally remotely by thermostatic control, whilst your in another room with the heating on.
This again means you that you are also using less heat than gas or electric convection. Gas heating systems have to constantly run to heat up the air space in the room which rises to the ceiling and can escape quickly. The thermal images and comparison images below demonstrate this.
Thermal Image Proof That Convection Heat From Gas Or Standard Electricity Rises leaving cold spots In the Room or Allowing Escape Of Heat.
Although your price of gas seems lower than electricity, you are constantly running the boiler to heat the space and the whole house. Therefore in many cases the heating part of your gas bill can be higher than electricity. When you compare infrared hearing with the cost of installation of gas, pipe work, yearly boiler service costs, then gas is no longer attractive. Breakdown and replacement costs of gas boilers over time, combined with the effects on the environment adds further cost and unreliability. Infrared heaters have no moving parts, there are no servicing costs once you have installed. Therefore it makes sense to make the change to infrared heating. This is the reason why more and more new builds and refits choose infrared heating technologies.
