Tendring District Council have recently gathered the results, and tenant feedback, from an independent trial they carried out on Herschel Select infrared panels installed within a council owned apartment.
The trial took place in Essex over 14 months, incorporating 2 winter seasons, and the tenant has subsequently seen a saving on their energy bill of £250 p.a compared with the previous night storage heaters.
The tenant has confirmed she prefers the feeling of heat from Herschel heaters, the comfort levels being achieved from a total Herschel wattage of 3.75kW versus the previous heating’s output of 12kW.
Additional benefits include the increased room space now available from ceiling mounting plus the ease of control.
“In terms of the purchasing price, an easy installation plus reduced energy costs Herschel won the contract hands down”. Richard Cuthbert, Building Surveyor, Tendring Council.
