According to a 2011 Canadian Labour Statistics Division study, workers lost over nine (9) days of work annually, with over 80% of those absences related to illness. Lost time has increased by over 9% in the past decade.

 

Why Are We Sick Longer and More Often?

Jessica Green is a professor at the University of Oregonan as well as an engineer and ecologist who specializes in biodiversity theory and microbial systems.

Ms. Green's offers this insight into the problem of workplace illness:

“Humans in the developed world spend more than 90 percent of their lives indoors, where they breathe

in and come into contact with trillions of life forms invisible to the naked eye: microorganisms.”

It's the Heating System!

Radiant Heating Systems: The Cure for Workplace Illness?

Radiant Heating Systems provide warmth and comfort the same way nature does, with a direct transference of heat from the sun to the Earth. 

Heat travels in straight lines, just as light does. However, heat travels naturally from warmer objects to cooler objects because cool objects act like a magnet to the warmth.

A ThermaRay SmartRooms environment works exactly the same way. Unlike conventional heating, our Radiant Heating Systems automatically warm people and objects first, not the air.

SmartRooms Thermal Comfort System generates this type of heat. Warmth is radiated directly to the cooler objects in a room, like walls, floors, furniture, and people.

Just like the sun does with a direct transference of heat from object to object, naturally and efficiently. Efficiently and effectively, without fans, pumps or hoses. Silent, motionless and invisible ... and that's what makes SmartRooms so smart!
