Heating holiday homes

Warm for your stay, smart when you’re away

Heating holiday homes using Infrared

Holiday homes have unique heating requirements that make Herschel Infrared a perfect heating choice.  Because they are second homes and usually only occasionally used, owners want a heating solution that is pragmatic, effective and affordable which they can fully control before, during and after their stay.

Because Holiday homes are not peoples’ main home and often not even in the same country (where heating is often never built-in, in countries such as Spain), people want a solution they can buy and implement with the minimum of fuss and disruption and that they know is going to run effectively and is low (or no) maintenance.  As electricity is almost always already available, Infrared also avoids the need for negotiating additional contracts for other fuels.

The Smart controls that come with Herschel Infrared mean you can warm your holiday home up ready for your arrival and switch it off when you are away. If your main home is also controlled by Infrared, our XLS controls allow you to set a Holiday schedule that will turn your heating off (or down) and count down the days you are away – turning your heating back on for your return.

Heating vacation properties with Infrared

Smart monitoring in the Herschel iQ and XLS control systems ensures a minimum safe temperature is maintained in places that could be subject to freezing winter temperatures, avoiding the chance of frozen pipes.  

Condensation and mould can be a problem in vacation properties in damp or humid climates because they tend to be closed up for long periods of time and cool down.  Infrared heating is excellent for drying out the fabric of the building and preventing expensive maintenance due to damp.

Excellent Service… Everyone we spoke too (& we kept returning with questions) was helpful & knowledgeable. Always ready to listen and answer questions. Couldn’t fault any one of them & they helped us solve our heating dilemma to our satisfaction. Thank you Jane, Kelly & Jack.

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

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.

Extraordinary. Easy to install, easy to programme and the heat is wonderful. Our friends love them too. They are so impressed as they’ve never heard of infra red heating but they are thinking about it now.
