TheraBulb 250W incandescent infrared bulbs received top ranking in GembaRed LLC’s best of list. GembaRed compared nine major brands of bulbs, evaluating them for light uniformity, intensity, and wavelength spectrum. Overall, TheraBulb was ranked second only to GE and received the top ranking for irradiance.
TheraBulbs are designed to maximize red light and near infrared output and intensity, both of which are produced by the filament and not the glass shell. Despite being red in color, the glass that encases the filament plays zero role in the production of red light and near infrared energy.
TheraBulb offers two different types of bulbs: incandescent and LED. We sell both types of bulbs because each one offers some features that the other does not. This not only makes them alternatives for each other, but also complementary. In this blog post we're going to discuss how using incandescent and LED bulbs together can offer you the best of both worlds.
If you're building an infrared sauna or otherwise want to experience soothing heat and penetrating near infrared energy, you may be wondering how many bulbs you'll need. In this blog post, we'll provide you some information and resources to help you determine the right number of bulbs for your use.
In this blog post, we’ll explain what makes an infrared heat lamp bulb and infrared lamp / light fixture compatible, what sorts of lamps can be used to operate TheraBulbs, and what you need to know about using a TheraBulb near infrared light bulb in a mounted light fixture.
Irradiance is the technical term for intensity of light. Irradiance can apply to both visible light, which can be seen with the naked eye, and infrared energy, which is not perceptible to the naked eye. Whether the light/energy is visible or not, its irradiance decreases as distance from the source increases.
