Backyard Comfort uses infrared heating for all the electric and gas heaters they sell. It is when a heated quart element emits a clean, safe wavelength of light that is absorbed by solid objects. This transfers heat directly to a table, person or floor rather than heating the air.
As a result, infrared heat can be distributed evenly, and will not “blow away” in windy or drafty conditions. Our gas and electric heaters emit a pleasing glow that will not affect the ambience of your gathering – unlike short-wave or halogen electric heaters that product a harsh glare or bright colored light that can be offensive.
