At Urban Vybe we have incorporated specially designed far-infrared heating panels into our studios because of the numerous health benefits they contribute while exercising. If infrared sounds new and high-tech it’s really not. There is so much to say about infrared heating: the difference between it and convection heating; the many benefits of far-infrared heat; how it works; why it’s good for you; and more, that this blog will probably turn into several, so stay posted to find out why you should heat yourself up and get your vibe on!

What is Infrared Heat?

Far infrared heat is the same heat that is emitted by our bodies and by the sun. However, the sun also emits UVA and UVB rays which can damage your skin cells and cause cancer. This is one big advantage to far-infrared heat, it does not emit UVA or UVB rays and is beneficial in many ways. Infrared heat, believe it or not, is the same heat generated from fires, coal, logs, the sun, and tile stoves. Humans have warmed themselves with it since the caveman days. Rather than heating the air, infrared heat works by heating objects around it, which radiates that heat back into the environment. This is a more efficient and effective way to keep warm. Air cannot hold much heat and the heat it does hold disperses quickly.

A Comeback

Over the past six decades, radiant heat was replaced with cheaper fossil fuels that were used to heat the air throughout buildings and homes, called central heating. More recently, with the green movement, technological advancements have made it possible to create far-infrared heating panels that generate radiant energy without the need to burn a fire. These panels provide 100 percent heating efficiency and effectiveness in a controllable, comfortable, and stylish form. Come check them out!
