PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) is a ceramic-based heating element. PTC heating elements are also used in some hair dryers. The performance is similar to quartz infrared heaters. PTC elements do not dry out the air like quartz bulbs, but the heat feels the same. Quartz bulbs have size limits while PTC elements come in different sizes. That is why some heaters with one larger PTC element will have the same performance as a heater with multiple Quartz elements.
