Practical, affordable heating for self-builders & renovators

Herschel Infrared is a very attractive solution for heating self build and renovation projects.  In both cases you will be looking for a solution that is pragmatic to install without the disruption of extending wet systems or underfloor heating or the expense, complexity and skills requirements of heat pumps. Self-builders and renovators who meet us at our stand at the Home Ideas Centre, Auckland are also driven by energy efficiency and a modern look.  All of them love the fact that our heaters can be put high up on walls or ceilings and not become obstacles to work around with furniture or shelves, that the heaters can be discrete white panels that blend into the background, or a showpiece family picture or mirror.

Self-builders and renovators love the fact that you can also progress room by room with an infrared heating installation – not having to wait for the last piece of plumbing before the entire system can be used and with very little intrusion apart from wiring into the structure of the building itself.

The other considerable advantage is that Infrared Heating can be installed using complimentary skills to those needed during the renovation anyway, avoiding the organisation and down time required for specialist contractors which can help to avoid significant costs.

A far infrared heating panel review from a satisfied Herschel customer

Renewable, CO2 free and low carbon footprint

A lot of self-builds and renovations are highly environmentally conscious, taking the opportunity to improve insulation and install solar on their roof. Infrared heating is perfect in these situations, being CO2 free in operation and often requiring less energy to heat than the Solar PV is producing on the roof. Alternatively simply switch supply to a 100% renewable electricity tariff for totally carbon neutral heating.

Infrared heaters are non toxic in operation and do not have the hidden hydrocarbons in the form of coolant gases you find in heat pumps, so have a much lower carbon footprint than air and ground source heat pumps.

Herschel’s packaging and heater components are also environmentally sustainable, with our heaters being 97% recyclable at the end of their lives.

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.

“Doing my bit towards climate change”

My whole experience. 3 infrared ceiling panels and 1 wall mounted space heater. Bought my first ever property. A little mid terrace 1 bedroom house with the bedroom on a mezzanine level. From ground floor to ceiling peak is 4.9m. Very open plan weird shape. The only heating system it had was a plug in electric fireplace… thing, and the gas meter had been took out. Anyway, after days/weeks of research and since I’m a bit of an ‘eco friendly nut’ – I decided on elec heating system and then on infrared panels as I don’t have enough space for anything on my walls. Gas or storage heaters would have been pointless as there is a huge volume of air as it’s all open plan and heat rises. My diamond colleague/friend who’s an electrician in his very late 50’s had never done anything like this, but I assured him he was very capable (lol). Ended up a near full re-wire and new board anyway. I sent off pictures with measurements and descriptions as I had zero clue what size/wattage I had to get and the team were very efficent in telling me what I needed after more than a few emails back and fourth. The instructions on the website which my dear friend spent about 2 weeks reading over, were very clear once he figured it out. Although my joiner did advise putting in extra framing above the ceilings to hold them up, but I lowered mine anyway and had access to the loft so this wasn’t a problem for me. Now I’m currently sitting in my new home with them all connected. Bearing in mind at the start of this project, I was a 24 year old painter and decorator who ‘doesn’t have a clue’ and infrared technology is ‘a waste of money’. I have now proven people wrong on both points and they are thoroughly amazed at these things. The heat they give off is direct, like the sun. Heats walls, surfaces, objects – which means they do not make the air stuffy like gas radiators or storage heaters which would give me a headache and make me feel like I couldn’t breathe. Also considering most storage heater wattage, these are meant to be better on the bills. They just take a bit of getting used to. I’m very pleased with them and the overall experience with this company. I hope they last a long time so this will be my first and last purchase. Unless in 20+ years I move, then I will be back and hopefully by then this internet page has thousands of 5* reviews. I did have a problem with the app on my phone (which eventhough I’m giving a 5 star review, does need work). But thankfully the people at herschel gave me an alternative so that I could use this system as was intended and I’m very greatful for that because now I’m cosy. So afterall, now with my panels and my renewable energy electricity supplier, I am now doing my bit towards climate change – at least in my mind… Thanks everyone.

“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.

“They’re just brilliant”.

“We call them the showpiece, the party pieces of the house. They’re just brilliant.”

“Why did we go with Herschel? It was a strong brand, Herschel’s testimonials were out of this world. We had amazing customer service. We were really impressed with the mirror and picture. We thought they’d be a great showpiece to our renovation.   When people come over it’s really interesting to see their faces when we tell them these are our heaters! ”
