About this project
It’s art. It’s a heater. It will save you money, comfort you, and decorate your place. That’s Hot Art. Blending classic style and functionality, each work of art pulls double duty as a safe and efficient infrared heater.
Choose one of the many designs, or customize your Hot Art with your own high-resolution image. That’s right, turn your favorite family photo, a picture of your children or your pets, or even your own digital art into an original piece of Hot Art.
With thousands of different styles and designs to choose from, Hot Art blends seamlessly in any home. Or, by using your own image, create a Hot Art original that will warm your heart, too.
Coordinate Hot Art with your decor or order a sleek white unit for a contemporary look. All Hot Art pieces come with a brushed aluminum frame, with the option to upgrade to other designer choices—or have it framed yourself.
With so many options, you are sure to find the perfect image that fits your taste.
Find the perfect spot on your wall that is screaming for you to make a Hot Art statement or mount a sleek white panel on the ceiling to blend with the room.
We also have a size that fits under a desk, keeping your feet warm and cozy, even on the coldest winter day. The Hot Curve is portable. Easily take it to different areas of the home as needed or even take it outside and dine al fresco as the seasons change.
Today’s lifestyle is all about making use of the outdoor space as much as the interior space. Infrared heating is the perfect solution for this. Objects and people are warmed almost instantly with beautiful infrared Hot Art, regardless of drafts or breezes. Use your outdoor space all year with the comfort of Hot Art!
Your Hot Art unit will operate at about 600 watts, or roughly 40% of a comparable 1500 watt traditional space heater. On top of that, it will actually feel warmer.
Far infrared is the most energy-efficient method of heating available, especially when paired with an energy-neutral source of power, such as solar or wind. Other countries have already begun the push towards energy neutral living, with utilizing far infrared heating as a key component.
Hot Art can heat by zones. If you are getting up in the morning in your bedroom, going into your bathroom, and then leaving from the kitchen, you only need to use Hot Art in those three rooms. No need to heat the spare bedrooms, dining room, extra bathroom, etc.
Hot Art doesn’t dry the air either. This means that you feel warmer, even at a cooler temperature.You also don’t have to have the supplemental costs and hassles of operating humidifiers.
Far Infrared panels (Hot Art), have a life expectancy of more than 30 years, creating a very low cost of ownership. Homeowners will have to replace other methods more than once in most cases.
In addition, the units are relatively maintenance free. They can be cleaned with a damp cloth; there are no ducts and filters to keep clean. You also don’t have the costs of getting fuel, having units serviced each year, and dealing with the inevitable problems with moving parts that are used in conventional heating systems.
All of these elements contribute to an exceptionally low cost of ownership.
BRZ Brands is a product design and development firm focused on the home and life markets. We contract with the best manufacturers to produce our lifestyle products. We also work with inventors and other creative individuals to bring their products to market. We are especially interested in green alternative products, and believe far infrared heating could eventually be the dominant choice in home heating solutions.
Risks and challenges
We have fully researched and developed Hot Art as as a product. We have done exhaustive research to identify manufacturing partners that are efficient and have promised to deliver on our product development timeline.
Our general delivery date is scheduled for January 2015. While we do not foresee any delays we are dependent on our manufacturing partners and will be working diligently with them to ensure a timely delivery.
Hot Art/Hot Curve emit the same warming natural light as the sun, without harmful UV rays. This heat is created by an infrared heating element contained within the panel. The heat produced by infrared technology does not dry the air, which makes you feel more comfortable.
As long as they aren’t early bird rewards, yes. Simply increase your pledge by 2X, 5X, 10x, etc. At the special Kickstarter price, we can’t offer a discount on the international shipping price at this time, though we will evaluate it once the goods are in inventory.
I really would like a Hot Curve and a piece of Hot Art. Can I get a combination of items at the special Kickstarter pricing?
Yes, simply increase your pledge by the amount of the award(s) that you would like to add, then contact us with explanatory details.
Don’t worry, we can accommodate electrical requirements in most major countries. For example: your European Hot Art order can include 220V power, and a European or UK plug.
Hot Art carries both CE and RoHS safety certifications.
A lot of factors impact the heating capacity of the units within individualized space. We recommend one unit per 100-150 square feet, approximately. Remember mounting a sleek white (or any other unit) on a normal ceiling is also highly efficient for heating!
