Infrared heaters are great for keeping the whole house warm. These modern electric heating solutions…
Winter is here and, as much as we like to wear our comfortable clothes, use hot water bottles and drink a hot chocolate under the blankets, there is something winter brings to most homes that no one likes, humidity.
Humidity in the house during winter is annoying and concerning. Mould affects the air we breathe inside our house and it may even lead to structural damage. It is particularly difficult to remove because poor air circulation creates a fertile ground for mould, and who wants to open windows when it is cold outside? Here is how to reduce humidity during this season with a revolution in heating: infrared lamps.
What is infrared heating?
Conventional electric or gas heaters work by heating the air inside a room, so that when you enter that room, you will slowly start feeling warmer. On the other hand, infrared heating works slightly differently. An infrared lamp is a modern and incredibly innovative way to warm up your home. It transmits gentle rays that impact objects and heat the body, just like the sun does.
Infrared radiant panels are 100% safe: this “technology” is used by nature every day and our body too transmits these rays! It attracts and creates much less dust, pollen and bacteria, making it an ideal heating solution for asthmatics subjects and people with allergies. An infrared lamp is also highly energy efficient, offering significant cost savings. This low-cost heating method affects everything inside the house, including walls, ceiling, floor and furniture, allowing the room to retain heat for a long time after the infrared panel has been turned off. In addition, our infrared lamps are completely modern and flexibility of installation anywhere in your property.
A cause of mould is actually humidity deriving from everyday activities such as hot showers or cooking that cause condensation on the walls. Due to the lack of airflow in the corners of a room, these activities lead to the production of moulds, making the situation worse. Another major cause is high humidity. The rain moistens the walls of the house and winter conditions make the situation worse.
What do you usually do when you want to dry your wet beach towel in the middle of summer? You would leave it in the sun, of course! The same process is used by an infrared heater to reduce moisture. An infrared lamp is like using the actual energy of the sun in your home. Infrared lamps transmit waves that can penetrate walls, drying them from the inside, reducing condensation and, consequently, preventing the diffusion of moulds. This is particularly effective with porous walls and plasters. It is important to note that the cause of the problem should be resolved before using infrared heating panels to reduce humidity. Switching to infrared lamps is clearly a wise move and simple, too! No tanks or pipes required. It is as simple as hanging a painting.
