Electric infrared heaters provide even and efficient heat and hence, are preferable for home heating purposes. Let’s know how they ensure even efficient heat.
Electric infrared heaters use electric current that heats up the heating element enabling emission of infrared radiation. This radiation distributes throughout the room evenly and gets converted to heat upon striking any object or individual. So the heat is evenly distributed in the space from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling. The warmth can be, therefore, experienced at any corner of the room. This is a very much beneficial feature. However, with convection heaters, you cannot get even heat. The heated air that comes out of convection heaters is less denser, rises to the ceiling and remains there. So, heated air may not reach the entire room and even heat is not evident. But, remember that you choose an electric infrared heater based on the size of the room to be heated.
The radiation from these heaters do not get blocked by the individuals or objects. It is, however, reflected off by them to other directions. So the efficiency of heating obviously increases. In addition, certain electric infrared heaters include specific reflectors which focus radiation or heat to specific desired areas of the room. So they even enable efficient concentrated heating too.
No energy loss is associated with electric infrared heaters. However, as said, heat from convection heaters retains at the ceiling avoiding you to experience warmth. So they pertain to energy loss. As electric infrared heaters ensure even and efficient heat without any energy loss, they are preferable to any other types.
