Health Benefits of Far Infrared Heaters

Therapeutic, Clean, Healthy Heat

heaters-in-wall-130x155Non-polluting BioSmart® far infrared heat is healthier, mor ecomfortable, and more efficient than any other conventional source of heat. Far infrared heat provides many of the benefits of natural sunlight without the dangerous effects of UV radiation. Best of all, heating with far infrared does not add pollutants into the environment. Plus, the BioSmart® far infrared heating system also produces healthy negative ions that are circulated through the copper ion heat exchanger. The BioSmart® far infrared heating system also offers all of the therapeutic benefits associated with using infrared heat.


BioSmart® Far Infrared Heat Is Therapeutic

healthy, comfortable BioSmart heatBioSmart® far infrared heaters produce healthy far infrared heat waves which promote improved cardiovascular circulation and all the other health benefits associated with infrared appliances. Far infrared heat specifically targets water molecules, so the heat from the BioSmart® far infrared heating system transfers evenly and quickly through the relative humidity in the air. Considering that the human body is comprised of approximately 84% water, the heat from a BioSmart® far infrared heater easily penetrates the molecules in the body, heating you and your family faster, healthier, and safer than any other conventional heating source available.

Other benefits include:

  • Reduced muscle and joint pain
  • Decreased joint stiffness
  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased circulation

Comfortable Heat

Soft Comfortable Heat with Negative Ions

negative ions generated by a waterfall - BioSmartNegative ions have been attributed to improvements in mood and physical health. That wonderful, exhilarating, super-charged feeling that you experience while standing by a waterfall or after a rain is due to the overabundance of negative ions in the atmosphere. Negative ionization has a very cleansing and invigorating effect. Conventional electrical heaters generate just the opposite, positive ions, which have deleterious effects on your health and well-being.

You will find that the soft, comfortable levels of heat achieved with the BioSmart® Far Infrared Heating System are superior to any other heating source. BioSmart® therapeutic ceramic far infrared wall heaters produce a wavelength of far infrared heat that penetrates the water molecules in the body, thereby heating you and your family more effectively, and more efficiently. Since infrared heat does not dry out the air, it retains its natural humidity and is much easier on your respiratory passages and skin. The BioSmart® far infrared heating system:

  • Maintains Balanced Temperatures from Floor to Ceiling without the noticeable “cold pockets” common in conventional baseboard heating systems.
  • Promotes Healthier, Cleaner Air. BioSmart® Heaters are the perfect heating source for your home as they can eliminate the contamination that exists in forced air heating systems, wood stoves, or kerosene space heaters.
  • Heats Comfortably and Economically. Its zonal heating capability allows you to heat only the areas of your choice.
  • Provides Peace of Mind: BioSmart® heaters are a safe heating source that cannot burn or harm pets, children, or furniture. BioSmart® heaters do not give off solar radiation like conventional radiant heaters or dishes. Plus, a BioSmart® far infrared heater is designed to last 20 years or more!


Conventional Heaters vs. Far Infrared Heaters

Far infrared heating technology is the most efficient way to turn electrical energy into heat. A far infrared heater operates differently from a conventional space heater. Infrared waves are a shorter wavelength and travel faster and are more penetrating, therefore a far infrared heater can heat a larger area faster and more evenly, and the room retains that heat longer than if heated with a conventional heater. The far infrared wavelength also penetrates and heats the objects in the surrounding area, which will in turn radiate heat back into your home.

BioSmart improves air qualityConventional heaters heat the air within the room which must then heat the objects and people in the room. This method is less efficient than the more directly penetrating far infrared radiant heat. Hot dry air tends to rise and dissipate out poorly insulated areas, cracks and windows faster since the heat is not as readily absorbed. This type of heat by it’s nature has to be hotter in order for a person to feel as warm and comfortable as with an infrared heater running at a lower temperature. This makes conventional heat not only less efficient and effective but very drying to the air which in turn dries out the membranes of the respiratory passages and the skin causing irritation. A heater running at combustible temperatures also lowers the oxygen content of the air thus further compromising air quality.
