What are the properties of infrared heating and how do they help to improve the quality of the space?

Most conventional heating systems using the natural convection effect use ambient air and ambient temperature as a heating medium.

This heating mode causes the air to dry out, because as the temperature increases, the air tends to expand and the humidity decreases. In contrast, infrared marble heating bodies use radiant heat to heat the human body and building blocks directly. In conclusion, infrared heating of marble is ideal for people, especially for someone with respiratory problems, because it does not dry and does not ionize the air.

Is the infrared radiation emitting the marble bodies dangerous to man?

Most types of radiation are safe for humans. Radiation is electromagnetic waves that carry energy directly into space. In other words, no medium is required for the propagation of heat, as required in the convection or treatment phenomenon.

Some examples of thermal radiation are:

  1. The heat that the sun sends to the earth.
  2. The heat emitted by a lamp.
  3. The heat emitted by the fireplace when lit.

Certain sources of radiation are harmful to humans (such as ultraviolet rays). Marble radiators do not produce this type of radiation. Instead, they operate on the C-wave infrared wavelength, which has a proven positive effect on humans.

How can a marble body have a small dimension, low power and heat?

Elith’s marble bodies are infrared heaters that emit three-dimensional. Because of the specific crystal structure of the natural rock from which they are made, they have the ability to accumulate more energy than any other material. They make the most of the infrared heating technology, resulting in great energy savings.

How long does it take to begin to feel the warmth of the radiator?

The heat emitted by the body is perceived in about 15 minutes. The body reaches its maximum operating heat (maxtemp = 100oC) in 30 to 40 minutes.

What is the thermal coverage area?

Marble radiators have standard dimensions and constructional strength. The thermal coverage area is inextricably linked to the room’s specificity, square meters and thermal insulation.

A 0.35kW MET-type marble body, sufficient to cover a space between 2m² and 4m², for indoor thermal insulation.

A marble body type ΜΗ-17 1,65kW sufficient to cover space from ± 15m² to 20m², for use in indoor heat insulated rooms.

Do the marble bodies provide an ecological and healthy way of heating?

The spectrum of solar radiation consists of electromagnetic waves, some of which are infrared. Thermal radiation belongs to the range of infrared rays. Wall-mounted marble heating is a technology that has been developed over the last few years, as opposed to other heating systems, infrared marble heating bodies use radiant heat to heat the human body and building blocks directly.

The material is natural marble or granite and there is nature in nature. The crystal structure of natural stone reflects the heat in all directions and diffuses uniformly into space. The combination of the electricity system with renewable energy makes these systems fully ecological.

In conclusion, infrared heating of marble is ideal for anyone with respiratory problems because it does not dry and does not ionize the air while remaining environmentally friendly.
