Radiant tubes, otherwise known as infrared (IR) heating, are the home heating solution which best mimic de way in which the sun warms the earth. Their biggest advantage lies with the fact that they heat people and objects at floor level, because the heat in the form of the emitted electromagnetic waves is naturally absorbed by all physical bodies. The principles according to which the system operates are simple: the radiant energy that reaches anything in a room is absorbed, converted into body heat and then re-radiated; it is similar to being warmed by the sun.
