Helping Churches meet Net-Zero targets by 2030

In February 2020, The Church of England brought forward its net-zero emissions target to 2030. The opportunity to identify areas for reducing energy usage, across circa 16,000 churches, is significant. Given that 72% of the energy consumed by any church is used in heating the building, choosing the correct heating solution will be vital in meeting this target.

Halo - The ultimate heating option for heritage buildings

Sustainable Heating

Herschel Infrared heating provides churches with the ability to install an energy-efficient, effective heating system that can be tailored to the specific needs of any particular space.

With both zero light and warm glow, low glare heaters available, Herschel’s electric infrared solutions can be powered by a renewable energy tariff to ensure carbon footprints are minimised.

The Revolutionary Halo

Stunning chandelier-style infrared heaters, with zero light heat emission, for heating heritage buildings and churches

With powerful, zero light, far infrared heat emitters the UK manufactured Halo offers historic buildings and places of worship a highly controllable, effective and decorative heating solution that is acceptable to conservation bodies and avoids high installation costs. With low power LED lighting an additional option, the Halo ensures fast warm up times minimising energy consumption to provide 100% CO2 free heating when combined with renewables.

The Halo heating range ideal for heating places of worship

Proven Savings Over Convection Heating: a 'game-changer' for Bristol Church

Trials of Halo heaters in a UK Church over winter 2022/23 showed an 80% reduction in energy used and 63% reduction in the heating bill compared to running the gas heating system.

Per Service this equates to a cost of around £17-20 because the heaters only need to be on for the duration of the service. In comparison the gas system would have to run on full for many hours in advance of the service to heat the church and at current prices would be costing up to £100 per service on cold days.

Fantastic feedback in from St Matthews Church in Bristol – significant savings in energy, rapid warm-up times and a comfortable congregation for their Sunday Services.

Why do Churches Choose Infrared?

    • Infrared (radiant) systems directly heat objects and people in a space as opposed to heating the air and circulating it, thereby saving energy;
    • Reduced carbon footprint – with the correct energy supply (any form of renewable energy or green tariff ) infrared heating can be run on a zero-carbon basis;
    • Enables a much more consistent, comfortable temperature for the congregation;
    • Quick, simple installation – infrared heating simply needs an electricity supply and can be wall or ceiling mounted in the correct place (portable solutions also available);
    • No requirement for maintenance checks;
    • Highly controllable – simple operation to ensure the right people and spaces are heated at the right times with no wasted energy;
    • Solid-state, no moving parts – long life solutions;
    • No noise;
    • Choose between zero light and warm glow heaters;
    • Infrared warms the building fabric itself helping to preserve buildings and reduce damp levels.
