Herschel Infrared Where to use Service Bays and Workshops

Service Bays and Workshops

Herschel Infrared provides a cost effective space heater solution for service bays and workshops

Effective heating solutions for service and loading bays and workshop areas

Vehicle service and loading bays are difficult to heat using traditional solutions which require you to heat the whole volume of air, blow dust and other unwanted debris and encourage moisture formation.

These workshop areas benefit greatly from a Herschel Infrared space heating solution. Moisture is kept to a minimum, there is no circulation of air from the heater and because our heaters can be zoned, to heat just the area you want, they are cost effective, highly efficient and comfortable. Significant energy savings can be made by heating specific areas and not the entire volume of the building.

Our commercial space heating range is the preferred choice for replacement of old gas and electric convection heating. Our heaters are also suitable as additional supplementary heating of cold areas.

All our heaters offer an exceptionally long life and solutions vary from ceramic based “zero light” far infrared heaters to “warm glow” infrared heaters for more challenging or difficult-to-heat areas.

Unlike convection based systems, our heaters can be positioned to heat specific zones, for example a work surface, a drying area, or isles within a garage. Infrared directly heats people and the objects within the zone, providing heat where you want it, when you want it.

All of the heaters within our range are easy to install, zero maintenance, completely silent and long life. There are options available for heaters to be suspended, ceiling or wall mounted. Control options include remote control, programmed and push button timer, depending on requirements.

Case Studies

Efficient, no hassle, silent heating for garage service bays and workshops Read more
Hard to heat glass studio chooses Herschel Infrared Read more
Mitie were instructed by the client to look at cost savings and reduction of energy consumption across the occupied estate. One key area was a reduction in heating costs and Herschel were approached to see how Far Infrared electric heating could achieve this and provide a more efficient and effective way of heating four areas. Mitie and the Client are now monitoring the overall energy savings and reduced consumption and ratifying these in accordance with International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). This provides best practice techniques for verifying results of energy efficiency, water efficiency, and renewable energy projects in commercial and industrial facilities. Herschel Far Infrared products are now being considered for a number of other projects. Read more

“Rather than heat the entire space, much of which is storage or rarely in use for any length of time, we use three heaters to maintain comfort in the main work areas in the studio. The heaters were fast and simple to install, and cost significantly less than a boiler based system. Running costs are predictable and the heat is very natural and comfortable. Because the space heaters focus heat in a defined area, I can heat the area where I’m working rather than the whole space which reduces running costs. I’m also able to keep working when the cold would have slowed me down in the past”. Andrea Spencer

Since fitting the Hershel heaters in my garage condensation on my lovely cars, during the winter months, is a thing of the past! Using the lowest temperature setting of 5 degrees with the thermostatic control has been an effective inexpensive solution to a significant issue. A further advantage is the ability to warm the garage when working on my cars in the winter months making working on them during this period a much more pleasant experience. These heaters really provide an effective solution to the care of ones vehicles during the winter months.
