William Herschel

In 1800, William Herschel was testing filters to help him observe sun spots. When he used a red filter, he found there was a lot of heat produced by the light. Interested to discover more, Herschel split the sunlight into its different colours using a prism to measure the temperature of each.

He positioned another thermometer outside the last visible colour Red, as a control to measure room temperature. However, Herschel found that this final thermometer was reading more than all the other thermometers in the visible light bands!

He therefore concluded there must be a heat-producing invisible wavelength below (“infra”) the colour red and it became called “InfraRed”.

Herschel's Legacy

We are building on Herschel’s legacy and are pioneering the use of Far Infrared to heat people and buildings in more efficient, effective, stylish and comfortable ways than many traditional forms of heating.

We call it “Comfort Heating”

Our range of Far Infrared heaters is the most comprehensive in the world. We have high quality heaters to suit almost any application and, combined with our control systems, are at the forefront of the revolution in heating.
