How It Works
The Infrared Heater works with your in-home furnace to provide supplement heat. In short, room
temperature air circulates from the rear of the Infrared Heater, passes through a highly efficient filter,
enters a chamber that houses the Infrared Quartz Bulbs, and exits as heated air from the Diathermanous
Copper Plate constructed on the front of the unit. The Infrared Heater ideally heats a room of 500 to 700
square feet, but can be used to heat up a single room size up to 1000 square meters, depending on the
ambient temperature. And it does all this with a noise level below 46db. The Infrared Heater is not for
use as the primary/sole heating system.
Components and Functions
A. The Infrared Heater is constructed with Infrared Quartz Bulbs. Each Infrared Quartz Bulb is rated
at 375W. These bulbs produce therapeutic infrared rays that warm the air which passes through
the inner chamber. The Infrared Quartz Bulbs are constructed with a stainless steel thermal
conducting housing. The incorporated twisted style increases the efficiency of the unit.
3
B. An AC Cross Flow Fan pushes air over these Infrared Quartz Bulbs. Cross Flow Fans create a
wide flow of air using a cylindrical-shaped impeller. Air is drawn inside the Infrared Heater, flows
along the circumference of the chamber and over the Infrared Quartz Bulbs, and is blown out
laterally creating a uniform flow of warm air.
C. The Infrared Heater has a Delay Start Function which controls the AC Cross Flow Fan. The
purpose of the Delay Start Function is to allow the Infrared Quartz Bulbs to heat up before the fan
begins to circulate the air flow. In addition, the AC Cross Flow Fan will continue to circulate the
airflow after the power is turned off to circulate the warm air from the Infrared Heater cooling the
unit down.
D. The air flow exits through the front of the Infrared Heater. It travels from the Diathermanous
Copper Plate. The Diathermanous Copper Plate is constructed from red copper making it
advantageous for efficient thermal conductivity. It is a resourceful material in reflecting the
infrared rays.
E. The LED Digital Display is a convenient, stylish, and modern way to display the set temperature
and time. This attractive addition compliments the Infrared Heater, in that, it simplifies and makes
controlling the unit easy. Operating the heater is logical and can be done on the unit itself or by
remote.
Unpacking the Infrared Heater
1. First, check the carton to make sure there are no obvious damages that may have occurred
during shipment.
2. Open the Infrared Heater packaging and remove the heater by sliding it from the box. You may
want to gently and cautiously turn the entire box upside down letting the heater slowly slide out.
3. Remove all the protective materials from the heater. It may be a good idea to keep the protective
materials and packaging for storage during the off-season.
Operating Instructions
Visually inspect the Infrared Heater for any damages before operation. Do not operate the
heater if any damages are detected. Contact your dealer immediately.
NOTE: “UP” and “DOWN” arrow buttons on the control panel and remote control have
dual function capabilities.

display is 720F. By pressing the TEMP
button, the LED display will switch to the temperature status and flash. You must press the
HI/LOW/UP button or 0C/0F/DOWN button once again within (5) seconds to set the desired
temperature. Each time you press the HI/LOW/UP button, the temperature setting will increase
by 10F. Press the 0C/0F/DOWN button and the time will decrease by 10F. The maximum
temperature setting is 860F (300F). If you hold the HI/LOW/UP button or 0C/0F/DOWN button for
(2) seconds, the number rotation will cycle more quickly.
Press TEMP to switch
to temperature status,
then press HI/LOW/UP
button once within 5
seconds to scroll up
5) Press the HI/LOW/UP button to switch from HI (rated at 1500W) to LOW (rated at 750W). The
default setting is HI.
From HI to LOW
6) The Infrared Heater can be turned off by pressing the POWER button. DO NOT TURN OFF THE
MASTER POWER SWITCH ON THE REAR OF THE HEATER OR UNPLUG THE HEATER
UNTIL THE FAN SHUTS DOWN. If the heater is left on using the TIME function, there will be (5)
second sound alert to let you know that the time is expiring. If no actions are taken, the heater
will shut off.
7) Note that the temperature displayed on the heater may not always match the temperature
displayed on wall thermostats, thermometers, or other external temperature read-outs. This is
because the heater is often located near the floor, which allows for it to register the temperature
of the cooler air near and around the floor (warmer air rises up). It does not necessarily mean
6
your room is that cooler or that the heater is not heating. If your heater’s display and your external
temperature read-out mechanism (thermometer, wall thermostat, etc.) are within a 5 to 6 degree
difference, it is completely normal.
Recommendations for Maximum Performance
1. Be sure not to place the heater in an area where the air flow or air movement is great.
2. Direct the outflow towards the center of the room and not against a solid structure, like a wall for
example. For larger areas, place the heater within a central location.
3. The Infrared Heater designed for maximum efficiency in the 680 F to 740 F range. This is because
of the ambient air moving through the heater and out constantly.
4. Existing HVAC heating system vents should be closed. This allows the heater to function in an
isolated area.
5. It is not recommended to operate heater in areas exposed to non-insulated concrete or metal
walls. Concrete floors should be covered to insulate the heat within the room.
6.
If the heater filters become dirty or dusty, they must be cleaned for the heater to operate at its
maximum efficiently.
Care, Maintenance, and Storage
Before care or maintenance is applied, always unplug the cord from the receptacle. The cabinet
housing can be wiped down with water and a damp cloth or with furniture polish. The heater has a
washable filter. The filter should be cleaned regularly to provide for maximum performance. Once the
filter is removed, run warm water through and over the filter to remove dirt and dust. Shake all water
residue from the filter and replace it back in the heater. (Note: A mild soap can be applied to assist in
removing dirt and dust from the filter)
If the heater is not to be used for an extended period of time, it can be stored away. Make sure the
power is turned off and the cord is unplugged from the receptacle. Wrap the cord around the handle on
the rear of the portable heater. Cover the heater to prevent dust from accumulating on the heater. You
may want to repack it back in its original carton. Always store the heater in a dry and dust free
environment.
(Note: You may want to clean the filter prior to storing the heater away so that it is ready for operation the
next time it is put in use.)
