A cool way to stay warm
At the beginning of February does anyone really think we have anything less than six weeks of winter to expect? Yeah sure, and the Leafs are going to take the Cup this year. So silly. With more cold to come, I wanted to tell you about a new heating product I just learned about. Redwood infrared heaters are thin, lightweight, rectangular units that can be covered with images, mirror — even chalkboard, as in the pic above. They plug into a standard electrical unit. Using infrared rays (like the sun), they warm surfaces, which then radiate heat. According to Marcus Plowright, manager of London, Ontario’s Anden Building Products, Redwell’s exclusive dealer in North America, they’re also very energy-efficient, easy to mount and transportable from room to room. He adds that the technology has been big in Europe for many years now. More on this clever product soon (well, within the next six weeks) in an upcoming Hot Home Products column. In the meantime, you can get more information from the Redwell site.
