What are the monthly operation costs?
- Outside temperature
- Room set back temperature
- The envelope of the room (number of exterior walls, windows, R values of insulation
- Number of students
- Frequency of classes
- Types of yoga offered
- What your electrical utility charges per kilowatt hour (KWH)
To find how much electricity costs in your area visit: Electricity Local.
Let’s say your cost of electricity per kilowatt hour is $.10 (10 cents), which is the national average. This means if you ran a 1,000 watt heater for an hour, it would cost you $.10 total. Next let’s take an average 600 square foot studio that has 9,000 watts or 9KW worth of heaters installed for primary heating and multiply that by the cost per kilowatt hour.
9 KW x $.10KWH = $.90 (90 cents per hour)
Now, getting back to the original question, we take the known variables (number of classes, length of class, number of students, R values, set back temperature, etc.) and we can project what it will cost per month.
So, in short for each class, i.e. 90 minutes, it will cost $.90 x 1.5 hours or $1.35 per class + warm up time from the set back temperature, i.e. ($.90 x 1 hour = $.90, x the number of class per day, i.e. 3 x the number of days per month, i.e. 20, your answer would be approximately $1.35 + $.90 = $2.25 x 3 class/day x 20 days/month = $135/month.

What is the best placement for heating panels?
When it comes to selecting the position of your heating panels, the only requirement is to follow the manufacturer guidelines. For example, one of our heaters requires a clearance of 18 inches from all other objects; so you would need to spread each unit at least 18 inches apart.
Outside of installation instructions, the best thing to do is to evenly space heating panels throughout your room.
Think of the heating panels as if they were lighting fixtures. The more evenly lights are spread out the better, and the same goes for infrared radiant heating panels.

Can I use radiant heating panels in addition to my current heating system?
- Your current heating system can maintain normal room temperatures (ie. 70F/21C).
- Your current heating system can be operated up to its maximum operating temperature (i.e. 85F) and then our infrared heaters can kick on and get the room up to the desired temperature (i.e. 105F). With the provided thermostat, the panels will turn on and off as needed to maintain the desired temperature.

How do I get my thermostat to go above 90F?
To override your thermostat to go above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, please read this guide.
Is installation included in the price?
No. We recommend that you hire a professional and qualified electrician, who does not need prior experience with our products. We are glad to offer free consultation to your electrician before or after you place your order so you have the peace of mind that the heater installation and operation will go smoothly.
What are the EMF specs?
In regards EMF specs, our manufacturers do not specify them. They have not done EMF testing and they do not plan to because the heaters do not have any motors of “high voltages” like power lines to require them to run EMF tests. Rest assured that all our products are UL listed, and you can also see the health benefit of our infrared heaters here. In addition, I encourage you to Google “benefits of infrared heating” and “EMF’s and infrared heating”. This will help give you a good reference about EMF’s and infrared heaters.
