How does Infrared Heating work?
Infrared technology is typically used to detect heat in objects rather than produce it. However, it can be cleverly harnessed to deliver large amounts of warmth in virtually any environment.An outdoor infrared heater will operate in the far infrared spectrum, tuned between 9-14 micron metres. This narrow range produces sun-like heat but with no health or safety issues.Heat is generated by electromagnetic waves, which cause molecules to oscillate and release energy. This energy is what gives us warmth. Infrared outdoor heaters will propel warmth onto surrounding objects, which absorb this energy and slowly release it rather than Traditional outdoor heaters fuelled by gas or oil attempting to heat the surrounding air
The most popular ways to control these heaters are by PIR's(passive infrared detectors) or time delay switches, Both these options have maximum times the heating will be on(reducing energy used) so any inactivity in the area isn't wasteful. PIR's work on movement and turn off when it doesn't detect any while time delays switches are pressed and last a set amount of time.
