The infrared gas stove produces a reddish-orange colour and has a visual effect that is most similar to a chimney fire. This is accomplished by igniting the gas on a ceramic refractory brick’s surface that has been punctured with tiny holes.
The average power of the infrared gas burners is 4.2 kW, which heats a space of roughly 40 m2. Additionally, there are more affordable variants with up to 12 kW that can illuminate spaces with a surface area of roughly 100 m2.
The infrared gas stove has a lot of advantages.
Since its refractory brick allows for greater heat dispersion and longer heat diffusion in the space where it is installed, making it ideal for home interiors, it is generally more efficient than an infra-blue gas stove. Additionally, if the apparatus incorporates a parabolic reflector, this heating capacity may be increased.
The heat that the infrared gas burner emits is then useful in preventing the room’s air from drying out.
Infrared gas stoves: Disadvantages
The cost of an infrared gas stove can quickly rise and approach 5,000 euros, even without factoring in installation fees paid to a professional, for more powerful equipment, wrapped in a cast iron or ceramic coating, or even recreating the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the flame in the chimney.
Additionally, compared to a traditional infra-blue type, the infrared gas stove may consume more energy.
Infrared Gas Stove: How it Works:
An infrared burner is a device that uses electromagnetic radiation to transmit energy to a body at a lower temperature in order to raise its temperature. The wavelength of the infrared radiation peak varies from 780 nm to 1 mm depending on the emitter’s temperature.
