Many people will want to know whether the heater has radiation. In fact, no matter what kind of electrical appliance, as long as it is an electrical appliance, there will be some radiation more or less, but the magnitude of the radiation is different. Some radiation is relatively small. Now let’s talk about it in detail, the radiation of the heater is not large, and what needs to be paid attention to when using the heater.
1. Does the heater have radiation?
In winter, some families like to use small electric heaters, heaters and other heating appliances, but their radiation is not small. Let’s take a look at infrared electric heaters. The test results at a distance of 1mm are: the radiation on the top is 1.8μT, and the radiation on the side is 5.4 μT. μT, the radiation intensity is very high, we did the test 1m away, and the radiation was reduced to 0.14μT. The test result that the heater is close to is 9.3μT, at half a meter, the front is 0.34μT, and the back is 0.25μT. However, what is reassuring is the oil-based electric heater. When it is used in high-end, the top is 0.19 μT; the side is 0.18 μT when it is close, and 0.18 μT when it is half a meter. This is mainly related to the heating principle and structure of the oil-based electric heater.
Electromagnetic radiation is divided into two levels, in which the unit of the industrial frequency band is μT. If the radiation is above 0.4 μT, it is a strong radiation, which is harmful to the human body, and long-term exposure is susceptible to leukemia. If the radiation is below 0.4μT, it is relatively safe. The unit of radio frequency electromagnetic wave is μW/cm2.
Therefore, the heater is radiant.
2. Precautions for the use of heaters
1. Do not hang clothes directly on the heater
Electric heaters without clothes drying racks, never cover the heater with clothes. In this way, on the one hand, it can avoid burning the clothes, and on the other hand, it can also prevent the pressure of the heat transfer oil inside the heater shell from rising, causing the leakage of the hot oil and the bursting of the shell.
2. Pay attention to waterproof when using in the bathroom
Even waterproof heaters, don’t get too close to the bathtub, washbasin or shower, and try to avoid spraying water directly on the bathroom heater when bathing. The bathroom heater should never be placed directly under the power outlet, because the upward hot air released by the heater can easily burn the outlet.
3. Long-term use will affect health
In winter, if you have long-term close contact with heating equipment such as electric heaters, electric blankets, and hand warmers, after the skin is exposed to an environment higher than the body surface temperature for a long time, brown mesh-like plaques of different shades will grow on the arms and face. These plaques belong to fiery erythema, if not treated in time, it may also cause the skin blood vessels to dilate and proliferate, resulting in premature aging of the skin. Patients should reduce or stop contact with heat sources, and slowly carry out conditioning. In winter, they must pay special attention to hydrating and moisturizing the skin, and usually drink more water.
The above is the relevant analysis and description about whether the heater has radiation. The heater has radiation, so you need to pay more attention when using it. Also, when the heater is in use, it is not advisable to hang a picture directly on the heater, because it is easy to cause danger.
