Infrared heat uses a shorter wave length and is able to penetrate solid objects. By doing so, such objects in the room then give off heat. Instead of just heating the air around you, infrared heat will warm any object that it makes contact with, including your body.
The Comfort Furnace will heat a room evenly from floor to ceiling. Even rooms with high ceilings are not a problem, because the room is heated evenly. There is no need for a fan to circulate the heat. The Comfort Furnace infrared heater is a true infrared heating system that contains four infrared heating elements.
There are many other advantages of infrared heat. First, it warms the body faster than a conventional heater. The infrared heat penetrates the body, and energy that flows into the body is absorbed more quickly. The end result is that a 68 degree room, heated with infrared heat, would feel more like 72 degrees. Thus, if you set the thermostat back 4 to 5 degrees, you experience the same comfort level as a 72 degree room, but using less energy to keep you warm.
The Comfort Furnace also sterilizes the air that passes through the Ultraviolet Light (UV light), When the air is brought in through the back, the germicidal UV lamps installed inside effectively deactivates germs and bacteria. PLUS, four infrared heating elements heat the air inside the chamber to a temperature between 180 and 200 degrees, which is capable of eliminating germs and other airborne pests.
Since the Comfort Furnace has no ductwork, there is no place for bacteria, mold, or dust pollen to accumulate. Most homes have the heating and air conditioning using the same air ducts. These ducts accumulate dust, bacteria, mold, germs, and other contaminants. If not cleaned properly, this can cause allergies and respiratory problems, and may adversely affect people with asthma as well.
