Recent Case Studies

Replacing gas boiler with Herschel Halo results in significantly faster warm-up times

Churchwarden Andrew Bellamy discusses his experience with using Herschel Halo heaters to heat the St Michael’s Church as opposed to their old gas boiler. The old system used to take them 4 or 5 days (working 24 hours a day) to heat the church to 16 or 17 degrees, now the Halo heaters are switched on just 30 minutes before the service and within half an hour every part of the church is registering 17 or 18 degrees.

How it works

How does Herschel Infrared Heating work?

How does Herschel far infrared heating technology work and why is it more energy efficient than convection heating? This video demonstrates how radiant objects, including humans, absorb and emit far infrared heat and how our sense of comfort is less to do with the air temperature and more to do with the temperature of the environment around you. On this basis Herschel Infrared heaters represent a breakthrough in heating technology by being low energy radiant heaters that warm up the environment around you and not the air. See how in the video.

The Discovery & Science of Infrared Heat

Robert Fosbury, Astronomer and Professor of Ophthalmology, explains how William Herschel made his discovery of infrared back in 1800. Herschel made his incredible discovery using a prism to study the heating effect of different colours of light. Watch as Robert uses a prism to produce a spectrum of colours on the wall of William Herschel’s very own home – the very home from which William Herschel also discovered the planet Uranus in March 1781 (now The Herschel Museum of Astronomy).
