Specific Infratech Heater and Accessory Q & A

What is your Question About?

C/CD and W/WD-Series heaters share the great benefits of Infratech electric infrared heat: eco-friendly, efficient, odorless, and an extensive Three-Year Warranty. Both series are available in a range of wattages, sizes, color & control options.  What's the difference? Essentially, it's aesthetics only. W/WD Series are also best suited for flush mount installation, while the C/CD is best for surface mount.

If you are concerned about ambience, the appearance of your décor and creating a more relaxing environment, Infratech infrared quartz elements are always the best choice. Infratech quartz elements provide comfortable medium wave heat. Competitive products with short wave halogen elements produce more intense heat while emitting very bright and harsh-colored light. By contrast, Infratech medium wave elements effectively heat your space, while providing a soft, warm glow that is practically unnoticeable.

The Motif decorative fascias should not be added to flush mount or recessed heater installations. The Motif collection is designed to snap onto the C or CD-Series Surface Mounted heaters that are designed for wall, ceiling, or pole mount applications.

One of the big advantages of the Dual Element heater is you have the option of 5000 watt and 6000 watt heaters, whereas the Single Element heaters only reach an output of 4000 watts. The other advantage of Dual Element is that you can use Duplex Stack Switches to create an inexpensive Lo/Hi option for heat control. That said, there are times when the Single Element heaters, due to length and total amperage draw may make Single Element heaters a better choice. When it doubt, give us a call at 1-800-697-7404.
