Can some Infrared heaters be
Yes: They require no special maintenance other than
occasional cleaning to prevent excess accumulation of dust and
lint on surfaces. It is important for the reflectors to be kept
clean to obtain the maximum radiant output. If used as a movable
unit, the cart and cord should be checked periodically to make
sure the hardware remains tight and cart and cord are not
damaged. Do not continue to use the heater if damaged.
Does it mater what I put in front of an infrared heater?
Heater element operates at very hot temperatures. Do NOT
place heater near combustibles and DO NO T place combustibles in
the radiation path in front of the heater. Keep all combustibles
at least five (5) feet from front of heater.

What is infrared heating?
The original infrared heater is the Sun, the infrared sun
raise travel long distances without heating the air as it
travels. The sun heats the ground which in turn heats the air
and everything above it.
Electric Infrared heaters work in a similar way, the electric
heater warms objects and people on contact. The infrared rays
are absorbed by the ground and objects at floor level - all of
which become warm and heat the air in the room floor to ceiling.
How can a thermostat control an infrared heater?
All thermostats measure air temperature, so the infrared
heater will keep heating the floor and other objects until the
warm surface heats the air. When the air is up to temperature
and the thermostat is satisfied the infrared heater will shut
off, until the thermostat has another call for heat.
Smaller infrared heaters have an ON/OFF switch. A 500 watt
electric infrared heater is too small to heat a room by itself.
Smaller infrared heaters are used above tables, or portable
vertical models are just spot heaters not room heaters.
What is the difference between spot heating & space heating?
Space heating means that the entire room is warm, like a
home heating system.
Spot heating is like a spot light; only a small area is affected
be the direct infrared heat. Spot heating is in used outside on
patios, outdoor waiting lines. It heats people who work in cool
warehouses, loading docks, etc.
Some people like working under infrared spot heater and some
don't, its like standing in front on a camp fire on a cold
night. Your front is warm but your back is still cool. Every
heater has it application infrared spot heating is an economical
How does a RCC Cove heater work?
The RCC cove heater mounts on any wall surface, near the
ceiling where its dual function heating can be fully utilized.
Radiant heat energy is directed downward, warming people and
objects near the floor, as well as the floor itself. Room air
gains heat from these objects and rises toward the ceiling. The
back side of the cove heater acts as a convector heater, pulling
the cooler air from the floor area, behind and over the heater,
thus helping to circulate and mix the air in the room until it
reaches an equilibrium temperature. The out-of-the-way mounting
also permits complete freedom of furniture placement in a room,
because the heaters will not be subjected to blockage, which
reduces the efficiency of floor or low-wall mounted heaters.
