Warming to infrared heating
Taking a new and innovative approach to home heating, Herschel Infrared’s stylish and energy-efficient heaters heat the surfaces and objects in your home – including you – keeping the whole area warmer for longer.
Types of heat
Many forms of heating rely on what is known as convection heat or heating air and moving it around the home. The trouble with air is that it doesn’t retain heat well, which is why a cold draft can lower the temperature of your room very quickly. Unfortunately for us, and our power bills, this means that the air must be continually heated to maintain a constant temperature.
Herschel Far Infrared heaters operate using radiant heat which, similar to the heat of the sun or a fire, can be absorbed by objects which will begin to radiate heat themselves once they reach a specific temperature, warming the room and people around them. Heating your home using radiant heat also reduces condensation and dampness ensuring a healthy environment in your home.
When infrared heating is installed and operated correctly, over a 24-hour timeframe, it can be more cost-effective to run than a heat pump. Once it has reached temperature, the home begins to radiate that warmth back into the rooms. Used with a thermostat control, your heaters will heat the house and then switch off and let the structure and surfaces in your home continue to radiate the warmth back. The heaters will not need to switch on again until they need recharging.
Herschel heaters are available in a slimline discreet panel that can be ceiling or wall mounted and are available in a range of styles, from white metal to black or white glass. There are even mirror heaters, combining function with heat. If your home has a high ceiling, you can install a hanging pendant versions of the heaters.
