Six Reasons Why you should choose Infrared
|1 Infrared Heating is 100% natural for our bodies and our well-being. The human body is designed to accept and to emit infrared waves. Far Infrared heating works on the basis of gentle, long-wave Infrared which penetrates the air and heats solids. If you like the warmth of the sun then you will love the feeling you get from your new infrared heating system.
2 Infrared heating does not heat air but the fabric of the building. It is different to more traditional heating systems that just heat the air. The fabric of the building can retain heat for longer, creating better thermal comfort, so your property will not only be warmer and cosier, there will be less dust, and for asthma and allergy sufferers, less pollutants to breathe in.
3 Less damp and mould because Infrared heating warms walls and keeps them dry. This will mean there is no damp or mould to ruin your decorations and all of the room will reach the same temperature.
4 Greatly reduced energy use. Experience shows that a sufficiently insulated building fitted with infrared systems and controls can expect significant reductions in energy usage. Almost 100% of the electrical energy used by Infrared heaters is converted into heat. Our Infrared systems offer owners an unprecedented level of control over their property’s temperature and energy use, and offer higher thermal comfort levels. Compared with other gas oil or electric solutions, Infrared heating saves between 30 – 60% of the annual energy usage.
5 Herschel Far Infrared heaters require no maintenance or servicing. Our heaters use solid state elements unlike water-based heating or fan-assisted systems, which often require servicing, inspection and repair costs. Herschel Infrared heaters and control products are certified to national safety standards.
6 Infrared heating is completely free of all carbon emissions and, when used with electricity produced either by wind or solar generated electrical energy, is one of the only heating systems that can truly claim to be 100% carbon free.
