Infrared is the transmission of energy by means of electromagnetic waves (rays). When rays strike an object they stimulate the molecules within the object, causing them to move rapidly and to generate heat. Infrared rays are invisible and travel at the speed of light in straight lines from the heat source to all surfaces and objects without heating the space (air), through which they pass. Energy in the rays is safely absorbed by cool surfaces (floors, equipment, people), and conduction carries some of this heat deeper into surfaces creating a reservoir of heat. The balance of the radiant energy is reflected from heated surfaces to be absorbed by other cooler surfaces. The temperature of air is raised by convection from heated surfaces.
