Infrared Radiant Heaters
Radiant heating systems supply heat directly from the heat source to the people and objects in the room via infrared radiant heat transfer. Radiant heating is more efficient than baseboard or forced-air heating because infrared radiant heaters heat objects in the environment that warm up and radiate back rather than heating the air.
Infrared heater temperature output is governed by the peak wavelength of thermal energy that the emitter is designed to produce as all materials absorb heat differently depending upon the composition of the material itself plus its surroundings. This is why the same infrared radiant units that can be used outside at a professional football stadium would not be used in a large bus repair depot. Electric infrared heaters, also called IR or radiant heaters, come in many different shapes and sizes.
