A Suntec uses 1.5 kilowatts per hour and costs on the average 15 cents an hour. This figure is based on the cost of 10 cents per a kilowatt hour. Your daily costs can range from $1 to $1.50 .
Usually just a few minutes. Consider that there are many variables such as the size of the room, how many doors/windows the room has and how well the room is insulated.
Yes, the heating will vary based on the size of the rooms involved and how open the floor plan is. If you have a ceiling fan turn it on, this will help move the air.
Yes, If you have a ceiling fan, try turning it on while heating. Set it to distribute the air from the ceiling to the lower portion of the room
Yes, We recommend placing the heater above the concrete basement floor which will allow for more efficient heating.
About 20,000 hours. They are replaceable and in stock.
Sure, but you should always make sure that the heaters are not on the same circuit. Each heater and appliance should always be on its own circuit.
We do not recommend using any type of stand alone heater in a bathroom.
Absolutely it has to be rated at 13.5 amps and have a 3 prong plug. You can get one at the grocery store.
It's dead simple. All infrared space heaters like the Suntec use quartz tubes with a large electric element. This element gets very hot. The tubes absorb the heat and radiate the heat as infrared rays.
Since Infrared rays cannot heat the air they are absorbed by the metal case that surrounds the tubes. The metal heats up. A fan pushes air through the metal case.
Neither an EdenPure nor a Suntec create moist heat. They just don't dry out the air. Any moisture in the air stays in the air. To be fair all infrared heaters don't dry out the air.
A Suntec heats the air to 191º Fº and an EdenPure to 143º F. This moderate temperature range is safe and well below the boiling point of water and why the moisture in the air stays in the air.
On the other hand the typical central heating system operates at very high temperatures. Air leaves the furnace at a high temperature because it has to travel 20-150 feet through duck work before it gets to the radiators. The furnace's internal temperature is so high it literally boils the moisture away.
