Why is far-infrared heating considered a green technology?

Featured image for “Why is far-infrared heating considered a green technology?”

Oil and gas heaters emit CO2 by burning fossil fuel and therefore directly contribute to the depletion of fossil fuels and rapid climate change.

Sooner or later this non-sustainable technology will reach the end of its lifecycle and alternative sustainable heating technologies must be adopted instead.

The use of green technology and renewable energy is an integral part of New Zealand and local government agenda and Infracomfort far-infrared panel heaters are already part of a green energy future. 

Widespread uptake of energy-efficient technology, such as far-infrared heating in factories, businesses and homes would mean a lot less new generation plants would be needed to supply New Zealand with high levels of renewable electricity. This would require less capital investment and reduce national electricity costs.

To minimize your environmental impact, choose an electricity supplier that uses renewable energy sources such as hydro, wind or geothermal.

Our far-infrared heat panels do not emit CO2 directly. If your energy provider supplies you with renewable energy (green electricity) you can totally eliminate your CO2 emission.

When compared to electric convection heaters and heat pumps, Infracomfort heaters can in many cases save up to 50 per cent in energy consumption, in some cases even up to 60 per cent.

Certified and guaranteed

All Infracomfort far-infrared heat panels and related products are certified to the NZ Electrical Standards requirements and come with a 5-year guarantee against faulty parts or workmanship.
