Features & Benefits
Infrared heat is the most efficient way to turn electrical energy into heat energy. Advanced Tech Infrared (ATI) Heaters use far-infrared, or thermal infrared, wavelengths to produce heat. These thermal heat waves are relatively short waves, which provide the ability to penetrate objects much faster than conventional radiant heat waves from gas or electric heat. As much as 80% of the heat generated by an infrared heater is absorbed by the objects in the room, instead of floating around in the air, uselessly dissipating through the walls, floor and ceiling. So, it requires 35-50% less energy to heat with infrared heat than with conventional radiant heat. Other forms of heat production warm the air first instead of the objects. With conventional radiant heat sources, hot air rises and settles on your ceiling, where it is as much as 15 degrees warmer than where you are sitting, on the floor. Infrared heat waves are distributed evenly from floor to ceiling, thus avoiding cold pockets typical with a conventional heater.
Air Purification is where Advanced Tech Infrared heaters separate themselves from all the other competition. Advanced air purification comes standard on every unit. Using Photo Catalyst Oxidation (PCO), combined with an activated carbon system and UV lamp, ATI heaters eliminate any odors that may be produced by the flowing air. As you heat your home, you are also sanitizing your home’s air quality for your family. PLUS, new for this season, all ATI heaters come standard with 4-SEASON Air Purification. ATI heaters now have the ability to work independently as an air purifier during the spring and summer months. You now are purifying the air not only when you heat, but also when you don’t want heat. This feature adds tremendous value, allowing your heater to also be used as an air purifier all year-round. You will pay much more for just a heater from our competitors. ATI has once again developed another industry first standard delivering maximum value, function and effectiveness to our products.
While ATI heaters will supply supplemental heat to your existing system, they are also ideally suited for zone heating applications, which involve heating the occupied areas in your home, while allowing unoccupied sections (such as empty guest rooms or seldom used rooms) to remain cooler. Zone heating can produce additional energy savings of more than 20% compared to heating both occupied and unoccupied areas of your house.
Advanced Tech Infrared heaters will pay for themselves in less than one heating season by saving you up to 50% on your heating bills. ATI heaters have three different fan settings (High / Low / Eco) that allow for increased energy savings and optimal heater performance within a desired room. The Eco (300 Sq. Ft.) setting reduces your energy consumption to 500 watts, the Low (300-600 Sq. Ft.) setting reduces your energy consumption to 1000 watts and High (600-1000 Sq. Ft.) setting uses 1500 watts. The fan speed setting selector allows for the most energy efficient control of any infrared heater on the market. The 12 hour timer increases your efficiency by allowing you to control exactly when your unit turns on or turns off even if you are not home.
Built-in safety features such as Overheat Protection, a Tip-Over Safety Switch and the ability to stay cool to the touch ensure that ATI heaters never get hot enough to start a fire and are the safest choice in infrared heating. The Cool to Touch Air Outlet with additional safety covering protection ensures safety for children and pets and eliminates the concern for burns. ATI heaters provide clean and green balanced heat that does not reduce oxygen or humidity in the air or emit any harmful fumes or carbon monoxide.
ATI Heaters produce heat that is as safe as the infrared rays of the Earth's sun, producing natural outdoor heat indoors. Our heaters have a low operating and maintenance cost. There are no burners to rust, corrode, or adjust and no pilot light to waste energy. A safe, clean, long life ceramic PTC heating element provides the heat energy. The expected element life is over 80,000 hours. The heaters are constructed of lifetime metals.
ATI heaters provide even heat distribution and warm floors. They thermostatically control, circulate, and recycle heated air at the floor for maximum use and comfort. The floor to ceiling temperature differential is minimal. As the heaters operate, you will notice their ability to heat does not depend on a high-speed flow of air. Instead, the gentle flow of air promotes a more effective heat mixing action and air stability at the floor. The heat that is being produced will not burn, dry out, or otherwise pollute the air with impurities. This protects the humidity level and air quality that is important to breathing comfort and personal health.
ATI heaters continue to offer much more than the industry standard, allowing you to take advantage of continued savings that competing units cannot offer. Only the finest materials are used to construct our heaters, such as an advanced digital touch screen display, galvanized chassis, whisper quiet fan, commercial grade thermostat and lifetime washable filter that never needs replacing. All this backed with our limited 3-year warranty ensures years of trouble free heating, making Advanced Tech Infrared Heaters simply the best all around value that you will find on the market.
