Hybrid or remote work is settling in as a permanent reality for millions of people around the globe, which is why a healthy home environment is so important to get right. At Boldr, we wanted to touch upon the benefits of the KELVIN infrared heating to your health and your home environment.
KELVIN uses infrared radiant heat to warm your home. Radiation often has a negative connotation, but not all radiation is dangerous to life. Infrared radiant heat is entirely safe, and can, in fact, improve our quality of life at home. Just like the infrared waves from the sun, the KELVIN heating panels have a positive and healthy effect on people and surroundings. Here are some examples of how your KELVIN can have a positive impact on your life.
KELVIN HEATING PANELS REDUCE THE SPREAD OF ALLERGENS AND DUST.
This is due to the fact that the KELVIN panels do not use air to transport heat. If you or a family member is allergic, it is best to opt for infrared heating panels. Traditional convection heaters like central heating radiators and electric baseboards circulate hot air along with dust and bacteria.
PREVENTS MOULD AND DAMPNESS
Warm air currents absorb and carry moisture much more than cooler air currents. This means that convection heaters increase the likelihood of dampness in your walls. Dampness can cause mould and is hugely detrimental to your health. It can cause respiratory problems, infections and allergies, due to the allergens produced by mould.
As infrared heating has minimal impact on air temperature, the chance of moisture being spread around a room is instantly minimised. There’s no risk of dampness or humidity that can have adverse effects on both you and your property.
ADDITIONAL HEALTH BENEFITS
When the body absorbs infrared heat, it increases blood circulation, enhances the immune system, and reduces joint pain and inflammation.
