Heating home extensions

The most pragmatic solution to heat home extensions

Infrared Heaters for Home ExtensionsHerschel Infrared heaters make the most practical solution for heating home extensions because unlike central heating they do not require any extension of existing pipework. Also, unlike underfloor heating there is minimal installation required, just simple electrical wiring easily carried out by your electrician. The heaters are so low-profile, you also do not need to sacrifice any of your precious extension space to a cumbersome unit (unlike Storage Heaters and most convection heaters).

With very little prior planning other than their positioning and provision for wiring, Infrared Panel Heaters can be installed very quickly and easily and can be as obtrusive or discreet as you need. Ceiling mounting of white panels is very popular, as used on “Your Home Made Perfect” (see the feature image) or you can chose a picture heater showing your favourite photo or a mirror heater. Because they directly heat the entire room, floors and walls will not get cold – they even prevent tiled floors from getting cold.

The heaters are solid state, with no moving parts and so are maintenance free. You have no risk of leaks and no risk of having to take up floors for repairs in the future.

Heating home extensions – made easy

Home Heating with InfraredInfrared heating has the following additional benefits when heating home extensions:

  • Controllability: Quite often the extension is an occasionally used room like an additional bedroom or a conservatory. In these cases you do not want your heating running on the schedule of the rest of the house. This is where Herschel’s controls come into their own, since every heater can be individually controlled, placed in an economy mode or even switched off.
  • Scalability and portability: Herschel’s solutions are easy to scale with your increasing house size, as you can easily add more heaters. If you purchase our White Select XLS panels with the optional Feet and T-PL plugin thermostat, you can also have a more portable, temporary solution to provide top-up heating just where you want it.

Testimonials

“They fitted the bill perfectly, we also like that we can control each room via individual thermostats”

We were having a modern kitchen/utility/cloak room extension to our 1940’s house. We were looking at all different kind of options to heat the extension plus office.

We were looking for solutions that wouldn’t take up wall space. Our builder recommended Herschel’s heaters, as they could be ceiling mounted and he had used them on previous builds. They fitted the bill perfectly, we also like that we can control each room via individual thermostats and via a Wi-Fi enabled app.

The heat the panels give out make the new extension very cosy. We look forward to the warm winter days.

“Impressed with the sleek look of the panels and the comfortable heat”.

I bought two 600W white panels to augment the current gas fired boiler radiators for our new 8m X 3m lounge extension. The heaters occupy the area next to some large bifold doors.
This was done with an eye to the future where electrical heating will be more widespread, and also make it possible to heat the room where we congregate without necessarily having to have the central heating on for long stretches, heating other rooms up that we aren’t in. I installed them myself, the tradesmen that where doing the work on the building including an electrician had not heard of these products. Mentioning infra-red heaters I think they expected to see glowing red bar heaters attached to the ceiling. They were all impressed with the sleek look of the panels and the comfortable heat that they project.

“I’m really impressed…….Final point – it’s a really nice heat too. Weird to understand but trust me!”

I have this installed in a kitchen extension. In doubling the size of my (small) kitchen I was looking for a heating solution as there was no radiator in the kitchen already – I turned to infrared!

This heater is installed on the ceiling of the extension, at a slight pitch and so facing in to the room to provide a really comfortable warmth. It’s been absolutely fantastic. Hard wired and connected to a smart thermostat I control from the Smart Life app with smart automatic settings. I just leave it to come on if the temperature drops below 19 degrees and turn off above 21 degrees – to maintain a comfortable temperature. The rest of the house is heated by a conventional gas boiler system so this doesn’t do the hard work – just heats up an extra room without radiator effectively. It tends to come on for no more than an hour at a time, maybe 3-4 times a day. In this room there is a large window and door to the back garden (both double glazed) – so that includes the fact the door can open and close at regular times through the day. My energy costs have not changed AT ALL. I presume that’s through having a better insulated external wall/window/door with the new extension which has stopped heat escaping as it must have done previously, but it goes to show that this is not expensive to run. When I say my energy costs haven’t increased, bear in mind this also includes being at home a lot more with other electronic devices being used. So I’m really impressed, I haven’t done any scientific calculations but the efficiency must mean the cost of the heater is paying for itself at a good pace. Final point – it’s a really nice heat too. Weird to understand but trust me!

“Part of the ground breaking BBC 2 TV show”

As the garden room & garage designed for us by architect Laura Clarke as part of the ground breaking BBC 2 TV show “Your Home Made Perfect” was both contemporary & minimalist in style, we knew we needed to find a range of fittings & furnishings to match. Consequently when Laura suggested Herschel’s infrared panels & showed us how versatile they were, we thought they could work very well in our new build. Whilst we liked idea of rimless white panels that could be controlled to suit when we used the room, they are so much better than we’d imagined ! However the best thing about them is that by siting them on the ceiling, they are not only unobtrusive, but automatically free up all the wall space to use flexibly. The result is a very spacious & visually uncluttered room that is not only cosy in winter as a place to work from home, but also to relax in an evening or on the weekend. We couldn’t be happier !

“Best heating I’ve ever had”

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