Total Area Comfort Heating
Spot heating locates the heater above the areas you are located so the air in the entire room is not heated. Infrared heats objects not air, so you are kept warmer even in a relatively cold room. Some heaters use a quartz glass heating element and some use a metal sheath tubular element. Metal heaters last longer, do not emit light, and are not as subject to damage from environmental factors, shock and impact. The advantage of quartz is quick heat up (seconds) and a higher efficiency of infrared.
In electric Infrared heating for ‘Total Area’ heat design, the actual fixture layout parallels closely the approach used in a general lighting system, but without as much permissible latitude. The allowable range of air temperature people accept as "comfortable" is very limited. Deviations of a few degrees from the preferred comfort temperature greatly affect a feeling of being too warm or too cold. For this reason, assumptions or rough approximations of critical factors in an indoor total heating system design must be minimized.
In electric infrared heating systems, it is important to know that air temperatures can be lower than temperatures with conventional heating systems, while giving the same degree of comfort to the occupants. The reason is that much of the heating affect on the occupants comes directly from the radiant energy produced by the heating elements. The infrared system also makes the temperature of the floor and surfaces higher than the surrounding air temperature.
The function of an electric infrared ‘Total Area’ heating system is to supply the right amount of heating where needed to maintain a constant desired comfort level. An effective heating system brings the room surfaces and air up to temperature and holds them constant despite changes in outside air temperature or variations in heat losses. If the infrared equipment is carefully selected and properly installed (to project heat downward in a uniform distribution pattern over the floor area), excellent ‘Total Area’ heating efficiency can be expected.
