Health Benefits of Infrared Heating
The principles of our Infrared Radiant Heating provision is based upon the oldest heat source known to man – the sun. By harnessing the properties of solar radiation, these infrared panels bathe the objects in the room in healthy heat energy. Rather than warming the air in the room, which warms from the top down and escapes quickly, LAVA® Infrared heating panels heat the objects in the room.
Convection heating systems (left image) can cause cold spots as well as circulate allergens whilst LAVA® Infrared Radiant Heating (right image) works by evenly warming the fabric of the room which in return radiates heat efficiently.
The people, the furniture and the very fabric of the building become soaked in warmth, quickly providing thermal comfort and longer lasting warmth in the room.
Because the heat transfer of infrared heating does not rely on the movement of air, you are less likely to create ‘cold spots’ in the home, for instance behind furniture or on exterior walls, which in the past has been a prime site for mould growth and dampness problems. Choosing LAVA® infrared panels means you can keep your building and bank balance healthier.
A healthier heating solution
Traditional heating methods rely on convection currents to move the warmed air around the room and provide thermal comfort to the occupants. These currents move not only air, but also dust particles and other allergens, a fact that can cause issues for people who suffer with asthma, allergies or other respiratory problems.
Choosing LAVA® Infrared heating panels means there is no unwanted movement of air, which creates a more pleasant environment.
Physiotherapists have used infrared for many years to treat stiffness, painful joints and muscular aches. It works by promoting better circulation in the body, encouraging healing blood cells towards the site of the pain. Using infrared heating means you can benefit from the healing properties of infrared heat every single day, helping you feel better.
