How Infra-Red Cuts Costs
Infra-red heaters cut fuel costs by lower temperature settings – Building heat loss is in direct proportion to the difference between the inside and the outside temperatures. With RE-VERBER-RAY®, the heat is directed to the floor and not trapped at the ceiling. Therefore, you can lower thermostat settings between 5 and 10 degrees and still maintain desired comfort levels at the floor. The high efficiencies of infra-red equipment has resulted in our customers experiencing fuel cost savings of 50% or more.

It is a generally accepted fact that gas-fired infra-red heaters save energy, and therefore dollars, over hot-air heating systems. International Radiant and Detroit Radiant Products are committed to not just making claims, but to documenting those savings through independent scientifically conducted field tests.
