Health benefits for infrared heating
Infrared heat has a beneficial effect on the immune system it brings relief to people suffering from allergies, asthma and rheumatism as well. Infrared heating stimulates metabolism, has detoxifying effects and helps keep the air at homeclean.
The first infrared cabin was constructed by Japanese physician Tadishi Ishikawa in 1967. The invention was first used only for medical purposes. In 1982 an infrared sauna was introduced for public use. Since then, its popularity has grown as an instrument for treatment in the private sector while it is also used by doctors and therapists. Patients with various rheumatic problems appreciate the low level of air circulation and the balanced level of humidity. These benefits are also appreciated by those suffering from asthma. Allergic sufferers also benefit from the advantages of infrared devices, such as the relatively smaller amount of dust, bacteria and mold spores in the air. Infrared heating dehumidifies walls and structures in which molds and fungi accumulate most frequently.
Often we do not even notice that we have mould at home – it can hide in dark and hard to reach places, sometimes reveals through musty air, otherwise we will not notice it. But after some time we will feel it in our own health, in the form of allergies or chronic respiratory problems. In areas where mould is present, asthmatic and allergy sufferers feel much worse. However, if the room is dry and warm enough, the mould will disappear. Heating in infrared technology can significantly speed up this process..
Dehumidification using infrared heating panels is based on the fact that the wall temperature is comparable to the air temperature in the room and that there is no condensation on the surface of the wall. Infrared heated rooms are also cleaner due to less air circulation: they do not cause dust, mites or other allergens to circulate.
Reduction of air circulation results from the equilibrated temperature in an infrared heated room (the temperature under the ceiling is only 1 ° C higher than the temperature at the floor). The warm air does not float upwards and the cold does not descend as it is with traditional heating – which clearly limits the rise of dust particles.
Home dust allergy means allergic to mite excreta, living in a dusty environment. The allergic reaction of the immune system in this case is not caused directly by dust, but by excrements which adhere to the dust particles carried by the air. The smaller the air circulation, the better for an allergy sufferer.
