An ion is an electrically charged atom or molecule whose number of electrons does not equal the number of protons. This difference in charge gives the atom or molecule an electrical charge.
Negative ions produce hormones promoting a feeling of well-being in humans and neutralise positive ions. This is why negative ions are also called "vitamins of the air". The highest density of negative ions is found in the air directly surrounding waterfalls. This waterfall atmosphere has a pleasant and soothing effect on humans. 70,000 negative ions per cubic centimetre were measured at the Krimml Waterfalls, whereas offices only have about 20. Natural oases of negative ions also include alpine altitudes (approx. 8,000), seashores (approx. 4,000) and coniferous forests (approx. 3,000).
Number of negative ions
Closed rooms and offices 0 – 250
City air 250 – 750
Country air 1,000 – 2,000
Mountain air 1,000 – 5,000
In a cave 5,000 – 20,000
In front of water falls 25,000 – 80,000
Everyone knows that heat has a great influence on our health. Healthy warmth helps to promote our well-being. This is why we developed the Thera P8 infrared heater, which offers focused heat where it can be put to optimal use and can also promote your health. Specifically, Thera technology has been proven to increase and optimise the proportion of negative ions in the air to an impressive degree.
An atom has exactly as many electrons (negative particles) as protons (positive particles). If there is an extra electron, it becomes negatively charged and is referred to as an ion. Studies have shown that a higher number of negative ions optimises the use of oxygen in the body, which in turn can have a positive effect on the respiratory tract. Depending on the version, our HALLER infrared heaters ensure that you not only experience an optimal perception of warmth, but also a healthy and pleasant room climate. The wide selection of infrared elements allows us to respond to your individual living situation to develop an optimum heat design for your rooms.
Experts claim that at least 20% more negative than positive ions are needed to live healthily in the environment and living spaces. This gives HALLER infrared heaters with Thera technology a unique advantage, not only over conventional heaters, but also over all other infrared heaters.
The following test was carried out during a trial run in England. Measurements were taken with an air ion counter, "IC-1000-W", which can measure negative and positive ions of up to 20,000,000 ions/cc per cubic centimetre. The energised 170-watt Thera P8 model was used in the test.
In another test set-up with a 680-watt HALLER Thera P8, measurements showed that within a period of two hours, the positive ions in the air (allergens are mainly caused by pollen, smoke, odour, dust, mould and other particles in the air) were reduced from 2400/cc positive ions to 800/cc (66.66%). In the same time, the number of negative ions increased significantly, creating a much better air and environment.
The air you breathe in a salt cave is many times cleaner than the air you breathe above ground. Cave therapy is based on the consistent avoidance of environmental pollutants in the air we breathe for a certain period of time. The number of negative ions, also called vitamins of the air, in caves is 5,000 - 10,000 per cm3.
"We at HALLER have adapted Thera technology into our BIO infrared heater. The energised powder in the HALLER heating system stores as much photon energy as about two tonnes of rock crystal."
Life on earth is constantly undergoing bioenergetic regeneration due to the high energy level of the earth's atmosphere. These primordial energies contribute to the life support of humans, animals and all vegetation and provide life with the necessary existential foundations. Unfortunately, this natural rule has not applied for a long time. As a result of environmental pollution, the natural regenerative energy no longer suffices to provide protection against these stresses
Our HALLER infrared heating systems generate infrared C heat waves, which are physiologically favourable and are perceived by people as beneficial (infrared heat cabins). With this heating system, you can have a comfortable radiant heat in your own home.
