One of the most important considerations when designing your home heating system is safety. Especially if there are young children in the family. In this article, we look at the impact that an infrared panel can have on children.
How safe is the infrapanel for children?
Infrared heating is so safe that it is even used in incubators to keep babies warm. Its operating mechanism is completely different from conventional heating systems. The most important difference is that the rays emitted by the infrared panels do not heat the air, but directly the objects and walls in the room. This can make the sensation of warmth they provide much more pleasant, like when the sun's rays caress your skin. But an important difference is that while some of the rays emitted by the sun can have harmful effects on our bodies, infrared rays are not harmful to a minimal degree.
What makes infrapanels so safe?
Often, the safe placement of heaters in the home is a problem, and with conventional heating systems, the options are quite limited. Not so with infra panels. They can be mounted on walls and ceilings, so children can't reach them.
Even at lower temperatures, the infrared rays provide a comfortable feeling of warmth, while making sure they don't burn your baby's skin. The heat produced by the infrared panels will not be too harsh or intense.
It avoids the risk of CO leaks as they are powered by electricity. So the risk of leakage is reduced to zero.
Allergy safe. The infrared panels do not heat up the air in the room, so there is no airflow. Because there is no dust circulating in the room, it is also perfect for allergy sufferers.
Can be controlled from the outside. The infrared panels can be connected to a thermostat, so they can be controlled either manually or remotely via WIFI. They can be used to maintain a constant temperature, which is vital for your health.
They are resilient. Our infrared panels are made from aluminium and tempered safety glass, so there's no need to worry about them being easily broken or damaged.
Infrared panels have a positive effect on our circulation
One disadvantage of using conventional heating systems is that our skin can often become dry during the heating season. Children's skin is very sensitive, so it is important to take care to protect and care for it properly. The infrared panel has no drying effect! What's more, the infrared rays penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, which not only improves our sense of warmth, but also improves our circulation. This can result in increased oxygen levels in your bloodstream and a lower heart rate, which will have a positive effect on your whole body. The heat dilates our blood vessels, increasing our circulation. So, in general our health can improve and even speed up wound healing.
