How is Dr. Infrared Heater Different From Other Heaters?
Dr. Infrared Heater uses infrared heating, which heats objects in the room, instantly making you feel warm and comfortable. Other heaters simply heat the air in the room, but because hot air rises, this method of heating is inefficient as it creates drafts that leave you hot one moment and cold the next. By heating only the objects rather than the air, Dr. Infrared Heater provides maximum warmth and energy efficiency.
With its state-of-the-art technology that helps the room retain air moisture, Dr. Infrared Heater won’t dry out your skin like those convection heaters that blast out hot air, stripping the room of moisture. And the best part? It will save you money. Use Dr. Infrared Heater instead of your regular heating system, and you could save up to 50% on your next electricity bill. Plus, with its tip-over and auto shut-off overheat protection, you can sleep soundly knowing you’ve got a heater with stellar safety features. With its unparalleled heating capabilities, safety design, energy efficiency, and quietness, Dr. Infrared Heater is simply the best choice for your home heating needs.
Tests Show Dr. Infrared Heater Heats Faster and Better Than Competing Heaters
In a side-by-side test comparison in airtight chambers with the same starting temperature, Dr. Infrared Heater heated the same amount of space much faster than a comparable heater from a leading brand. And the price tag on our competitor’s heater is twice as much as Dr. Infrared Heater.
Dr. Infrared Heater Delivers 60% more heat than other 1500-watt heaters. How?
It’s no magic trick--we just understand heat transfer better. Just because two heaters have the same wattage does not mean they transfer the same amount of heat. Wattage indicates the amount of electricity needed to power the heater--not the amount of heat it can deliver. Dr. Infrared Heater’s advanced heating system enables greater heat production without using any more power with a high-efficiency blower that delivers an average of 250°F at 3.5m/s to your room versus competing heaters that can only put out 155°F at 2.2m/s. That’s how Dr. Infrared Heater can deliver 60% more heat.
Dual Heating System Provides Maximum Comfort and Fastest Heat Transfer Rate
Dr. Infrared Heater is the first to feature a dual heating system to optimize the heat transfer rate. It combines the energy efficiency of infrared heat with the comfort of convection heat to heat your room fast and comfortably--without hot spots and cold spots.
Quiet and Efficient Blower
Dr. Infrared Heater’s blower is so quiet, you’ll hardly notice it’s on. Dr. Infrared Heater uses a state-of-the-art 7-inch blower that generates high pressure, moving large volumes of air at a lower speed. This proprietary technology allows our heater to perform better while being quieter than comparable heaters from other leading brands.
Auto Power Settings | 1000W or 1500W
Dr. Infrared Heater has three power Settings: Auto, Low 1000W, and High 1500W. The energy-saving Auto mode allows you to set your desired temperature from 50-86F. It smartly selects between the two settings depending on your room temperature. The thermostat regulates the heater and causes it to cycle on and off to maintain the set temperature. The 1500-watt HIGH setting is desirable under most situations since it quickly heats up the room to the desired temperature and then cycles off. You can also manually set the heater to either run continuously on High or Low, or on a timer.
Long Lifetime with 80,000 Hours of Operation
You can use Dr. Infrared Heater winter after winter for years. It’s built for an operating life of up to 80,000 hours.
Note: The heater has to be turned on first in order to use the remote. This a safety provision mandated by the Underwriters Laboratory. So, in order to use the remote, the first step for the user is to press the POWER button on the heater itself. This turns the heater on STANDBY. Then, pressing the POWER button on the remote will turn the heater on. The heater can't be turned on if the unit is not on STANDBY
