How does infrared panels work/how does it heat?
Called Radiant heat, this heat dose not heat the air but the objects and surface the infrared razes come in contact with. The surfaces then reflected the heat and thereafter the air temperature increases.
Is infrared harmful?
Infrared – are rays with wavelengths between 4 and 14 microns (radiation with wavelengths greater than 500 microns entering the microwave range have detrimental health effect, Radiant heat emitted from the Sunjoy panel should not be compared to Radiation from Microwaves. 20 micron or more of infrared radiation are beneficial to our health and are easily absorbed by the human body is recognized in the medical world for efficient physiological activity at the cellular level. Infrared radiation has a very important role in regulating thermodynamic equilibrium of living organisms.
