How does infrared work?
Infrared (IR) energy is a form of radiation, which falls between visible light and microwaves in the electromagnetic spectrum. These infrared lamps use low amounts of energy and work by emitting infrared radiations which can be used for many processes. Infrared heaters produce heat that is a product of invisible light from IR lamps.
