What is infrared heater? Can we build it? Answered



Thank you all.

It's a non-flame source of heat. Some use the equivalent of a very powerful light bulb, some use propane and a catalyst to heat a surface to red-hot.

Exactly - those heaters on patios with a metal umbrella on top are infrared - propane (etc) heats the metal which shoots off tonnes of infrared. A heating element inside of a ceramic plate puts off infrared for lizard tanks theres plenty of options.
