What is infrared?
Infrared radiation (IR), or infrared light, is a type of radiant energy that's invisible to human eyes but that we can feel as heat. All objects in the universe (for example, humans, animals, furniture, and even ice) emit some level of IR radiation, but two of the most prominent sources are the sun and fire. In simple terms, anything that can absorb heat will also emit heat. Of course, the type of infrared radiation and intensity of radiation varies from object to object, but they all emit infrared.
Many terms are associated with infrared – near-infrared, mid-infrared, far infrared, infrared A, infrared B, and infrared C. The critical point to understand is that infrared light has the ability to penetrate our skin, and heat the body from the inside, instead of heating the surrounding air. Infrared A (far infrared) penetrates the skip deepest and provides a different set of benefits, compared to infrared C (near infrared) which penetrates the least and provides a different set of benefits.
