Frequently Asked Questions
Infrared Heat? What is it?
Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. This allows a student to absorb heat while the surrounding air does not. This type of heat is most like natural sunlight.
Since 80% of the light that reaches the Earth is infrared, it’s already making it a form of light easily processed by our bodies. The air itself does not get hot with infrared heat, thereby making it suitable and tolerable for most students. Infrared heat does not recirculate air thereby reducing the circulation of dirty air and bacteria.
How Does It Work? Is it Safe?
Infrared heat differs greatly from, a typical HVAC heater that heats the air in a room. This is because the heat gets absorbed by the skin – thus having a superior effect on increased circulation, muscle flexibility and often detoxification. Your body absorbs infrared waves, and molecules begin to vibrate – thus, triggering them to expel the fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream. These toxins will then be released from your body in the form of sweat. This can yield a cleansing-like effect at the cellular level.
Since hospitals use infrared heat to keep premature babies warm – this is a perfectly safe form of warmth. The heat is a creation of the safe, spectrum light that is invisible to our eyes. Just as the sun has been heating people here on earth for thousands of years, the heater radiates sun-like warmth to our indoor space.

It’s Clean and it’s Green!
In many ways, our FAR-infrared heat is safer and healthier than traditional forms of heat. They are not reliant upon on fossil fuels, nor do they blow dust or allergens – and they don’t make noise. Also of benefit, our heating system doesn’t need filters, fuels, ducts or pumps that require seasonal cleaning and maintenance. The system is made in the USA & 99-100% recyclable!
