Complete Review of Dr. Infared Heater
Key Features Of DR. Infrared Heater
The Dr. Infrared apart from its best heating capabilities comes with awesome features that enhance its performance. I have compiled the list of the top six of them.
1. In-built Humidifier
The infrared heater comes with an inbuilt humidifier. Sometimes the air in the room gets dry. Dry air can cause respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis. Turn on the humidifier whenever you feel that air is dry.
You will find a bottle in this humidifier of infrared heater. The humidifier uses the water in this bottle to create a cool mist to remove the dryness of the air. But you need to check the water level of the bottle and if the water is finished then you have to refill it with clean drinking water.
2. Three power setting
This device has three power settings: Auto, Low and High. The auto setting is the most energy saving setting among the three power setting. It allows you to set the desired temperature to between 50-86°F. At high-power setting, the device is too powerful that it heats the room faster. On high power mode, it uses 1500W power. One can set timer how long one needs to run in this high power mode as this mode distribute a good amount of heat. After the time is over, the heater will automatically cycle off to another power mode. You can also run it for all time. You can set the heater to run on auto, low or high setting using a timer depending on your heating requirements.
A thermostat found in the device regulates the heater by causing cycling on and off after the desired temperature is reached. This temperature sensor helps to reduce electricity bill and also will not feel you overly warm.
3. Delivered 60% more heat
Featuring high-quality infrared quartz tube, Dr. Infrared heater delivers more than 60% heat than other 1500W heaters in the market. A question will pop up in mind, though the power rating is the same but how it generates more heat. There is no hidden trick. It generates more heat because the blower of this infrared heater is very powerful. Engineers of DR Infrared tested the blower with the blower of normal infrared heater. According to this test, DR Infrared heater delivered 250°F heat at 3.5 m/s speed, where other heaters only transfer 155°F at 2.2 m/s speed.
4. Dual Heating Systems
The heater features dual-heating systems featuring infrared quartz tube and PTC. It also has a 12-hour automatic shut-off timer. The tubes have higher heat transfer rates and are capable of warming rooms up to 1000 feet efficiently. The strong tube further ensures faster heating of the room.
5. Oscillating Fan
In case you require the heat to spread faster or to a much larger area, you can enable the oscillating fan feature. Activating this feature not only disperses the heat to a much wide area but also spreads the heat much faster. Follow the instructions in the manual on how to turn the feature on or off.
6. Remote Control
The Dr. Infrared with humidifier comes up with remote control system Therefore, you will enjoy adjusting the humidifiers and temperature of the heater at the comfort of your seat or even bed. The remote control is also relatively easy to use.
