Herschel Infrared Where to use Schools & Universities

Schools & Universities

Energy efficient heating solutions for heating schools, colleges and universities

Revolutionary heating for schools and universities

Herschel offer a unique range of energy efficient electric heating solutions for heating classrooms, halls and reception areas, lecture theatres and student accommodation.

For classrooms we offer ceiling mounted, zero light infrared panels. These can be integrated into ceiling grids or mounted directly to the ceiling. The heat produced radiates down to warm pupils and the classroom itself. They are efficient because energy is not wasted heating the air. Controls can be centralised or on an individual classroom basis. Because they are ceiling mounted there are no concerns over pupil safety or vandalism. They are simple to install, long life and maintenance free. This is a great alternative to convection based systems and can be combined with solar for truly renewable heating.

For lecture halls, reception areas, corridors and sports halls and changing rooms our space heating range provides a stylish and efficient solution either as supplementary heating or primary heating. Our solutions allow large areas to be heated without heating the entire volume of the building, or specific zones within an area, something which is not possible with convection based heating. This leads to better thermal comfort levels and lower energy consumption. Installation costs are relatively low and with zero maintenance typical paypack periods are short.

“We successfully installed the Herschel Pulsar units at our site in Paddington.  They look great and are working very well keeping the reception staff comfortable. They have proved great for our staff morale, are very safe and overcome the challenges on our site around air flow and stratification.  A very elegant solution. Thanks for such a great product and the advice around the installation”.
