|Both Carbon Fiber Infrared heaters and Ceramic Tube Infrared heaters emit the same Infrared waves.
Ceramic Tube has been around the longest and Carbon Fiber is a new style / technology in infrared heaters.Ceramic Tube heaters are long skinny tubes that emit IR waves in all directions, thus reflectors are used to reflect the IR waves from the backside of the tubes into the sauna. The limitation is that they can create areas of concentrated IR waves (you’ll feel hotter there) and areas with limited IR waves (you’ll feel colder in those areas).IR waves are thermal heat, like the sun’s rays. They heat up what they “bump” into. If you stand in the sun, you feel hot, but when you step in the shade, you feel cooler, even though the air temperature didn’t change. Infrared waves work similarly, thus you can have hotter and cooler areas in the sauna, depending on the intensity of the Infrared Sauna wave pattern.A key purpose behind the carbon panel heaters is to create a more even overall pattern of Infrared waves inside the sauna. The entire panel (covering very large areas of the walls, backs of benches, and even floor panels) emits an evenly distributed pattern of Infrared waves. The goal is to more evenly heat up the sauna user, and hopefully get a full body sweat going.From customers who have had the opportunity to try both, there seems to be a preference for the carbon panel heaters. This is why Pure Life Energy Saunas only offers

Infrared Heater Technologies as Described by the Factory
Common Features to Both Heaters
Human cells movement is in a certain frequency and the heaters simulate this movement. They use bio-spectrum radiant energy to directly penetrate the body’s tissues. Their energy output is tuned to correspond so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb close to 93% of the infrared waves that reach our skin.
Our heater surface temperature is very homogeneous, with temperature fluctuations not exceeding 2%. Our heaters are highly efficient at creating thermal energy, with a conversion rate as high as 97%.
Our heaters emit an energy wavelength spectrum of 5.6 – 15 microns bio spectrum wave, which is safe and offers the most benefit for our health.
Infrared heaters radiant energy heats the object itself, instead of the surrounding air as in conventional heaters, so they can warm the object sooner and at lower temperature settings.
