Spectrum Infrared (InfraredHeat.ca) was borne from a simple conversation on a dock at Lake of the Woods, Ontario. After talking about this new technology and being extremely skeptical of it (probably just like YOU!), we took it upon ourselves to prove (or disprove) the claims of “energy efficient”, “feels like being in sunshine”, “healthy” etc. etc. We were quite honestly expecting to dismiss all these claims as falsehoods, exaggerations, or even just outright lies! Wow…were we ever wrong! After researching for more hours than likely makes sense, we knew we had to start educating everyone we knew about this fascinating technology that has long been recognized in the UK and Europe, but is only just starting to gain the recognition it deserves here in North America. At this point was when the “real” work began!
Fine…we knew we wanted to educate people about the technology, energy savings, health benefits etc. etc. but since we couldn’t do the “I loved it so much, I bought the company” like Victor Kiam did with Remington shavers way back when, we just started our own company, instead. The next HUGE task was deciding which infrared heating products we’d carry. During all the research (and there was LOTS), it became painfully obvious that not all infrared products are created equally. We discovered pretty quickly in the process that the cheaply-made Asian products were not going to be something we’d be interested in (ever), and we only wanted to source the absolute best products available on the market, and we’ve done just that for you.
Far infrared heating isn’t for everybody. The upfront costs might be cost prohibitive for some, certainly compared with baseboard heaters. BUT, over time there IS a return on investment with far infrared heating. There absolutely isn’t with baseboards! They will only cost you more and more money over time until you quickly surpass those upfront cost savings you thought you were getting by not getting infrared panels. Over time (and it isn’t long), the infrared heating panels not only pay for themselves in hydro cost savings, but will keep money in your pocket after they’ve paid for themselves.
This website is larger than most other infrared-based sites (Ya don’t say!). Our thoughts on that are simple, far infrared radiant heating technology is still an unknown to LOTS of folks and it’s actually a little baffling just how unknown it still seems to be. Anyway, we’d rather provide our visitors with too much information, than not enough. It’s really that simple. We’ve tried to provide a useful resource for everyone that arrives on the website whether knowing very little, nothing at all or perhaps even already knowing lots about the technology. Given enough time, and some patience (and several cups of your favourite beverage!) you’ll end up knowing enough to make an educated decision about whether this IS the best available form of heating or not…and we certainly believe it is.
InfraredHeat.ca is extremely proud to be Canada’s Premier SolaRay by Ducoterra Distributor, and we’re an Authorized Infratech USA Dealer. We launched our own infrared panel line a couple years ago – the Si Series. Si Series panels come in both aluminum or glass and carry a 30 Year Warranty. We expect both the Ducoterra line of infrared panels as well as our own Si Series, to last over 30 years!
We don’t sell a whole bunch of different manufacturers’ products, we sell only the very few (couple?) best!
Our head office is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
We’re privately owned, and we’re proudly 100% Canadian!
