In this latest exploration into the technology of the Comfort Furnace Infrared Heater, we’re going to cover one of the most surprising benefits and features of them all. Namely, that the Comfort Furnace UV models are not only infrared heaters…but also air purifiers!
The Comfort Furnace UV employs Philips Ultraviolet Bulbs, which purify the air which passes through the unit. And when we say purifies, we’re talking about the nasty stuff: bacteria, mold, mildew, viruses and other airborne contaminants. These pathogens are stripped from the air which wafts out of the Comfort Furnace, meaning your family stays warm and healthy.
The Heat-A-Lot and Comfort Furnace XL also strip the air of harmful pathogens, but do so by sanitizing the air you breathe.
The health benefits of the Comfort Furnace are many, and we’ll dive into the others in future posts. But the fact that these infrared heaters remove pathogens like viruses at the height of cold and flu season — exactly when you’ll be using them to warm your rooms — may be the greatest of the health benefits.
Despite the benefits of using ultraviolet light, competitors of the Comfort Furnace don’t take advantage of the technology. The bulbs we use are of the highest quality (a product patented by Philips) and completely safe when used in a heating application.
And consider this health benefit when compared to burning heating oil, natural gas or propane to stay warm. With these conventional forms of heating, there are healthy-air dangers to consider — instead of advantages. With old-fashioned space heaters, there are no advantages and fire dangers to consider. Taking all this into account, there really is no comparison.
So if you’re looking to purchase an air purifier and an infrared heater, it just makes sense to go with the Comfort Furnace UV. Even if you hadn’t been considering an air purification system like the Comfort Furnace, by opting for the UV model, you’ll get two separate units for the price of just one!
