Burda Short Wave Infared Heaters
Infrared heat is the same heat that comes from the sun. It has no dangerous chemical byproducts or emissions that might harm your family or home. It doesn’t burn oxygen. It doesn’t emit carbon dioxide. And unlike air heaters, it doesn’t stir up dust and debris, making short-wave infrared heaters the better choice for allergy-sufferers.
Infrared heaters use less energy than conventional space heaters and have an extended bulb life of 5000 hours. They do not have to preheat, so nearly all its energy consumption is translated into direct, felt heat. You save money by not heating spaces that you don’t need to be constantly heated. Burda Smart Heaters are also less expensive to operate than comparable propane heaters. The 1500W heater costs just about $0.20 an hour to operate. By comparison, a propane heater costs about $2.00 an hour to operate.
Note: Approximate price savings, unverified.
Burda heaters are wall-mounted so they cannot tip over, unlike many other indoor/outdoor heaters on the market. They are also less likely to be touched inadvertently. Moreover, Burda Heaters are ETL Approved, meaning they have undergone independent testing that verifies compliance with widely accepted product safety standards in the U.S. and Canada.

Instant heat, no warm up
It’s the short wave that matters. When you turn on a Burda Short Wave Heater, you are instantly warmed. There is no pre-heating. No lag-time. No waiting. No delay.
Burda heaters radiate a wedge of instant heat that begins at the heater and fans outward. You feel the heat more intensely the closer you are to the heater. There is never any need to preheat the heater or room.
How it works
Infrared heat warms you just like the sun. Its effect feels similar to walking out of the shade into the sun. Though the ambient temperature is the same, you feel warmer. And the closer your are to the heat source, the warmer you feel. The Burda heater warms you directly; you'll feel warmer than the air is around you.
Burda Short Wave Heaters do not replace central heating. They do not heat the air, and then rely on the air to warm you. Instead, the short wave infrared rays warm you directly. You feel the warmth instantly, and soon as you turn the heater on.
New generation low glare
Unlike similar heaters, Burda’s Short Wave Infrared Heaters provide heat without the glare. Burda low-glare lamps are specially coated to reduce light and glare by up to 80% without losing heat. You enjoy warmth without the hassle of too bright lights.
Experience 100% heat and 80% less light.
Won't compete with room light
Burda Heaters have a special coating on their lamps. This inner coating pairs with outside filters to reduce light without losing heat. This combination creates a soft, golden light that does not compete with your existing lighting.
Burda Heaters are low-glare, so you can enjoy heat without shielding your eyes. This makes for a nicer atmosphere inside and outside, perfect for entertaining or just for your family to enjoy.

Burda Smart Infrared Heaters are used all over Europe. Many older buildings don't have centralized heat, and so rely on space heaters to warm them. Burda provides them a much-appreciated, cost-saving alternative.
For Europe's Cathedrals, central heating is often non-existent. Burda heaters provide a safe, money-saving alternative to space heaters. Because Burda Infrared Heaters heat directly, they don''t have to be turned on ahead of time to keep parishioners warm. Instead of turning on the heat on Wednesday for Sunday services, churches can turn on their Burda heaters just 15 minutes before service time. Parishioners are just as warm, and the church saves 95% of its heating bill.
Now that's Smart.

Top customer reviews
(for the 2000w model) Keep in mind this is 240v, so it requires a double pole switch and should really have a dedicated breaker as well.
The heat from it is instant and strong, it covers a fairly wide area, and is easily adjusted by tilting slightly. It does cast a fairly bright glow, if it is on at night, but if there are other light sources it is fine. Using it in the dark makes the area quite red, but not nearly as bad as some other lamps I have seen.
My only complaint is that I wish the cord was a bit longer, it is about 6 ft.
All aluminum body and very well-made good quality unit.
I'll probably add to this review once the weather gets really cold and I can get a better feel of how it performs.
Designed in Germany, manufactured in South Korea.
**Update: October 20th**
It's not been super cold (5°F) but it was 34°F last night and these units push out some significant heat.
