Most quartz/halogen infrared heaters are electrically-powered. I'm
looking for those that are fueled solely by natural gas. Gas is more
eco-friendly than electricity.
Thanks a bunch,
No, go get a plaque or catalytic infrared ventless gas heater. Quartz
infrared electric heaters have a nichrome wire coil glowing red hot inside
the quartz tube. In a real quartz infrared heater these tubes are mounted
in front of a nice polished parabolic reflector where you can see 'em. In a
fake quartz infrared heater (really forced air) they are shining on some
heat exchanger metal "cured copper" inside a pretty extremely overpriced
cube on casters.
I have seen natural gas-fired (and propane, too) radiant heaters in
various shops and such. Where halogen could possibly be part of this I
have no idea. Halogens are corrosive and toxic gases such as Chlorine,
Fluoring and Bromine. Not something you want in the air.
A Quartz-halogen lamp uses a special property of halogen gases to return
Tungsten atoms to the hottest spot in a Tungsten-filament lamp, thereby
extending the life of the lamp. I can't imagine how this
could possibly relate in any way to a gas-fired heater.
