What‘s far infrared sauna heater?
Infrared sauna heater is designed to emit energy in a very specific
wavelengththe highly beneficial infrared wavelength.
Energy comes in a range of wavelengths. The visible light we see
falls into one section of this range. Ultraviolet rays and x-rays
fall into other sections of the range.
While the infrared energy wavelengths range from 5.6 to 1000
microns (one micron equals one micrometer or one millionth of a
meter), far infrared sauna heaters are designed to provide infrared
waves with a concentration between 6 and 14 microns. FIR
wavelengths of between 6 and 14 microns are believed to be the most
beneficial to humans and other living things on Earth.
Nowadays, designers try to further fine-tune these heaters to emit
energy in the 9.35-12 micron wavelength range. This narrower
wavelength range is thought to be ideal for sauna users and
maximize the benefits of the infrared sauna. This corresponds to a
heat radiation between 98.6-120 degrees F.
How do they work?
Infrared sauna heaters produce far infrared radiation to directly
heat the user, they do not use steam or dry heat like a steam room
or dry heat sauna does.
The infrared waves don’t heat the air of the sauna as much as
conventional sauna heaters do. Instead, they travel through the air
until they run into an object (in this case the user). Then, by an
energy and heat transfer process called radiation, the waves warm
The heaters are activated by running an electrical current across
its emmiter. The electrical current energizes and excites the
emmiter and energy is radiated and broadcast from it in the form of
heat and light.
