Heating home extensions

The most pragmatic solution to heat home extensions

Herschel Infrared heaters make the most practical solution for heating home extensions because unlike central heating they do not require any extension of existing pipework. Also, unlike underfloor heating there is minimal installation required, just simple electrical wiring easily carried out by your electrician. The heaters are so low-profile, you also do not need to sacrifice any of your precious extension space to a cumbersome unit (unlike Storage Heaters and most convection heaters).

With very little prior planning other than their positioning and provision for wiring, Infrared Panel Heaters can be installed very quickly and easily and can be as obtrusive or discreet as you need. Ceiling mounting of white panels is very popular, as used on “Your Home Made Perfect” (see the feature image) or you can chose a picture heater showing your favourite photo or a mirror heater. Because they directly heat the entire room, floors and walls will not get cold – they even prevent tiled floors from getting cold.

The heaters are solid state, with no moving parts and so are maintenance free. You have no risk of leaks and no risk of having to take up floors for repairs in the future.

Heating home extensions - made easy

Infrared heating has the following additional benefits when heating home extensions:

  • Controllability: Quite often the extension is an occasionally used room like an additional bedroom or a conservatory. In these cases you do not want your heating running on the schedule of the rest of the house. This is where Herschel’s controls come into their own, since every heater can be individually controlled, placed in an economy mode or even switched off.
  • Scalability and portability: Herschel’s solutions are easy to scale with your increasing house size, as you can easily add more heaters. If you purchase our White Select XLS panels with the optional Feet, you can also have a more portable, temporary solution to provide top-up heating just where you want it.

Customer Testimonials

“Can’t recommend Herschel and these radiators highly enough”.

We live in an apartment in a converted listed building with tall ceilings and large sash windows. The electric heating system that was put in as part of the conversion just couldn’t heat the space and we suffered through a few very cold winters.

Last year we got in contact with Herschel and they talked us through all the options available, we settled on the Summit panels as they look sleek and stylish and it’s absolutely changed the feeling of our home. Not only do they heat our home amazingly but as silly as it sounds, it’s a real comforting warmth rather than the stuffy feeling you can get some convection radiators.

Can’t recommend Herschel and these radiators highly enough.

“So pleased with the final product”

Buying a house with night storage heaters called for a complete change in heating system. Herschel infrared heating panels provided an economical and environmental solution preferable to installing a gas boiler. Herschel were helpful and efficient throughout the process. We measured the rooms and they calculated what we needed, providing different options for the different model of panels.

The panels were easy to install and I am so pleased with the final product. They look elegant and unobtrusive on the ceiling; but provide instantly warming heat. Washing dries quickly, tiled floors feel warm beneath bare feet, and there are no radiators to clutter wall space. I love that I can control each panel from an app on my phone, meaning it is easy to heat up a room from the touch of a button. Best of all, when the electricity bill came, it was very reasonable.

“Part of the ground breaking BBC 2 TV show”

As the garden room & garage designed for us by architect Laura Clarke as part of the ground breaking BBC 2 TV show “Your Home Made Perfect” was both contemporary & minimalist in style, we knew we needed to find a range of fittings & furnishings to match. Consequently when Laura suggested Herschel’s infrared panels & showed us how versatile they were, we thought they could work very well in our new build. Whilst we liked idea of rimless white panels that could be controlled to suit when we used the room, they are so much better than we’d imagined ! However the best thing about them is that by siting them on the ceiling, they are not only unobtrusive, but automatically free up all the wall space to use flexibly. The result is a very spacious & visually uncluttered room that is not only cosy in winter as a place to work from home, but also to relax in an evening or on the weekend. We couldn’t be happier !

“Best heating I’ve ever had”

Fabulous heating system. Best heating I’ve ever had.
