- All living organisms are subjected to the natural electromagnetic radiation reaching the earth from the sun. Living organisms experience the beneficial as well as adverse effects of it at all levels, starting from sub-cellular organelles and ending with the whole body. Thermal radiation (or infrared) is a band of energy in the complete electromagnetic spectrum and it has been used effectively for millennia to treat/ease certain maladies and discomforts. Heated saunas are only one of the avenues (and perhaps the oldest) to deliver the radiation in a controlled environment and within a convenient treatment time. With the development of better technology to deliver pure far infrared radiation (FIR), the benefits from its effects have widened...

Why Far Infrared (FIR) Heating ?

The drawing on the left explains why conventional heating lacks efficiency.

In contrast, infrared heaters are modern devices which replicate the safest portion of the waves emitted by our Sun. These waves travel through the air until they hit objects. The objects absorb the radiation, producing heat. If the waves come into contact with humans, they will create a feeling of deep heat, but even if you are not directly in the path of the waves, most objects can radiate the heat towards you.

VIPHeating infrared panels do not require any pipe work or fuel storage facilities. The panels do not emit any pollutant and their operation is completely silent. The devices exist in numerous sizes, and can additionally be concealed as mirrors or artwork (you can even use your own images).

A brief history of Infrared light

The name infrared comes from the Latin word infra, meaning “below”. Red is the color of the longest wavelengths of visible light. Infrared light has a longer wavelength than that of red light. A longer wavelength means it has a lower frequency than red, hence “below”.

Sir William Herschel, an amateur astronomer famous for the discovery of Uranus in 1781, discovered infrared in the early 19th century. Herschel was familiar with Newton’s discovery that sunlight could be separated into its separate chromatic components via refraction through a glass prism. Herschel hypothesized that the colors themselves might contain different levels of heat, so he devised an experiment to test his theory. Herschel passed sunlight through a glass prism to create a spectrum (the rainbow created when light is divided into its color components) and measured the temperatures of the different colors.

As he measured the temperature of the violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red light, he noticed that the temperature increased from the violet to the red part of the spectrum. After understanding this pattern, Herschel measured the temperature just beyond the red portion of the spectrum and found this area had the highest temperature of all and thus contained the most heat. What Herschel discovered was a form of light beyond red light. Herschel’s experiments lead to the discovery of infrared light.
Infrared heating only started to be used on a massive scale starting from World War II, but was mainly used to speed up the drying of paint in factory production.

The use of infrared heating during the war years continued afterwards and went on to revolutionize many manufacturing processes.
The first infrared heaters emitted what is called near infrared (NIR), the radiation that is closest to red on the light spectrum.

Whilst many people started to use these in the late sixties and seventies to replace coal fires, they were more often seen in workshops and factories. They saw a slight decline in production when people started to move towards central heating systems.

Today NIR heaters are still very present in the market, but the specific type of heat they generate makes them much better suited for outdoor usage.
Today, modern infrared heating panels are designed to emit Far Infrared (FIR) waves because this precise type of energy offers significant benefits in various aspects like the installation costs, the running costs, the human health, the environment, the security of the appliances and their look .

Germany, Austria, Norway, and other highly developed North-European countries have been using infrared heating panels since over a decade with great satisfaction. These heating panels are now slowly becoming better known in the United Kingdom, Italy, several Eastern-European countries and even in the USA.

Advantages of FIR Heating Panels

Instant heat

The infrared heat emission of our panels takes less than 10 minutes to reach the preset power, therefore there is no need to start to heat cold spaces days before their effective use. Additionally, even before the walls and surfaces of the room reach the desired temperature, any person standing in the direct path of the FIR waves will instantaneously experience a comfortable warmth sensation.

Lower costs than conventional heaters

The cost of running an infrared panel versus an electrical convection heater is far cheaper as they require less power output to provide the same level of heat – for instance a 1000w infrared panel will provide a better level of heating comfort than a 1500w convection heater.

Uniform heating pattern

With convection heating, warm air tends to end up near the ceiling and cold air tends to sit at floor level. With infrared heating, the temperature differences across a room are far smaller so you can enjoy a more consistent temperature.

Mould prevention

Since infrared heat solid objects, which in turn radiate back the heat around them, there are less spaces which never receive heat. This in turn decreases the number of humid spots and will reduce the formation of mould.

Infrared panels are cheaper to install

Infrared heating panels require only electricity, so there is no need to install a boiler with its plumbing and associated heaters. The panels can heat a whole house and since they can be turned on and off as needed and produce heat almost instantly, you can very easily produce a zone heating system (for each room) to match your requirements.

Small footprint

Infrared heating panels can be installed on the ceiling, so you don’t lose any floor area like you would with radiators. By doing this it also increases the heating coverage area of the panels. For example an 850w panel will heat 13.5m2 area if hung on a wall, but a 17m2 area if attached to the ceiling.

High quality & Zero maintenance

VIPHeating quality infrared panels last a long time and will not need any maintenance. Some of our best panels come with a 10 years warranty and provide a nominal lifespan of 30 years.

Allergy prevention

Since infrared doesn’t rely on air as the medium for transporting the heat (like conventional convection heaters e.g. radiators), there is far less movement of air which means that dust and allergens aren’t constantly circulated around a room, helping to reducing their impact.

Health benefits

FIR heat warms the body, increasing capillary blood flow. Increased capillary blood flow helps to carry more oxygen and nutrients to the cell and carry away metabolic cellular waste. Anyone with circulation related conditions, or conditions that are exacerbated by cooler temperatures, will enjoy the soothing warmth produced by our FIR heaters.

Customizable look

Every infrared heating panel we offer is available in various shapes and dimensions. Each appliance can be customized with high-resolution images which you can choose from our extensive catalog, or you can provide your own private pictures like images of your family, pets, or your own digital art.
