For Restaurants: Keep 2 cold tables open per heater each evening...
2 table with 3 rotations per table = 6 checks (averaging $100 each) = $600 per evening in earnings
Cost to operate = 5 hours run-time = $0.92 per hour = $4.6 to operate per evening = 0.76% cost of earnings
Infrared heating technology is newer technology for the heating industry that uses advanced infrared wavelengths to transfer heat from the heating element to colder bodies in the surrounding range. Infrared heating can also emit visible light from the heating element, adding a calming glow.
Infrared heating is a more efficient form of heating due to the broader range of heat distributed and the comfortable heat is more evenly spread with less drop-off in the outer ranges. Previous burner technology uses gas powered flames to heat the emitter screen, causing an immediate loss of heat distribution through heating the emitter. In addition, emitter screens will decay and age through use, constantly reducing the heating ability. If the flame burner is not operating at peak performance, the emitter screen may not heat as expected or at all, eliminating the heat distribution entirely.
Infrared heaters use less energy to heat, and only heat “objects” and not the air itself. This aspect makes the best use of the heat, heating only what should be heated, with little environmental effect.
Infrared heating technology uses similar wavelengths as the sun, therefore they heat comfortably, without noise, or burn-off fumes from gas burners. As a result, they do not lower the humidity and dry out the surrounding atmosphere.
Components of infrared heaters remain safer to the touch, and heat heater parts very little if not at all. As a result, there is much less risk of getting burned if you touch the heater.
Infrared heaters reduce the risk of damaging components due to heat. Typically, flame burners will break down over time causing warping of metal parts over time. Infrared heaters however, do not heat surrounding components, allowing them to remain in good condition over time.
Infrared heating does not use flames or fire to heat the elements. As a result
A higher percentage of the panel's heat will be transferred into surrounding objects with minimal loss.
Heating with Infrared technology can reduce your heating costs.
Faster heating – heats in seconds versus minutes or hours.
