Infrared heating for care homes & social housing

Heating that meets specific care home & social housing requirements

Herschel is the #1 choice of care home proprietors and a number of UK county councils when it comes to choosing infrared heating for care homes & social housing.

Care Homes

Infrared Heaters for Care HomesOur range of far infrared panels heaters are used by a number of care homes providers and increasingly being used in social housing.

For the care home sector, the panels provide a cost effective way of heating areas without the need for an expensive centralised heating system. Panels can be ceiling mounted removing the heating from Priority 1 to Priority 3 and reducing risk of injury. They can be mounted with anti-ligature fittings where required.

Far infrared is natural for the body and is frequently used in the wellness sector. This can be a major point of consideration in buildings whose occupants sit for long periods of the day.

Each room can operate as a separate zone and be controlled by our specially designed range of thermostat control options or as part of an existing building management system, meaning either localised control or remote control from a central location. There is no single point of failure, each panel is separately fused.

The infrared heat improves thermal comfort levels because every part of the room is heated to an even level, removing cold spots and creating a more comfortable (non-stuffy) temperature. Unlike convector heaters there is minimal air movement which results in less dust and pollutants, especially helpful to asthma and allergy sufferers.

Our panels are zero maintenance with long life expectancies and have been proven to save energy compared to convector heaters. They can be used as a complete heating solution or as supplement to an underperforming legacy heating system.

Heating care homes

Social Housing

For social housing Herschel Infrared panel ranges have been proven to provide significant savings in heating bills compared to night storage heaters as well as a host of other benefits including better comfort levels, space savings and much improved controls.

Herschel panels have a low capital outlay, are easy to install, low maintenance and can be easily controlled with Herschel thermostats.

Because the far infrared heats the building, it reduces damp and condensation, a major issue in many social housing environments. The panels can be linked with solar PV to provide renewable heating and are up to 60% more efficient than night storage heaters.
