Heating passive houses with Infrared

Perfect heating for energy-efficient houses

Infrared Heating for Passive HousesInfrared is the perfect low energy solution for heating Passive houses due to their high insulation levels and other energy efficiencies. Infrared can be appropriately scaled to meet the low heating needs of each room. As Architectural Designer Charlie Luxton recognised when choosing Herschel for his own passive house renovation project, there was no point investing in an expensive heating system like a heat pump, when the heat requirements of the building were going to be so low.

Herschel Infrared was therefore perfect for providing the background levels of heat required as well as being slimline and unobtrusive. All the wiring could be planned ahead of time and the panels could be fitted easily, avoiding the disruption and complexities of underfloor heating or heat pumps.

CO2 free when used with renewables

Heating Passive Houses with InfraredChances are with Passive Houses that the total wattage of the Infrared heating will be less than the capacity of Solar PV that could be generated from the roof. The electricity generated would be free and CO2 free, and provide effective levels of background heating during the day, switching off when you don’t need it overnight.

Precise control is provided by the Herschel XLS control system which manages the room temperature to within 0.5°C also avoiding the wasteful on and off cycles of central heating systems with less precise thermostats.

“The greenest kilowatt is the one you don’t use”.

Testimonials

“I started to plan my home refurbishment in the Summer of 2016. My priorities were comfort and sustainability. The project involved insulating an old, solid stone house, upgrading the glazing, electrics and heating, plus an extension. I visited Andy and was able to see infrared heating panels and solar working together, so decided to go for both.

Although it’s early days, the heating seems very economical to run. The solar contributes to running cost savings and we also use the spare solar electricity to heat water so my home is future-proofed. The whole house is zoned and controlled with Herschel iQ thermostats so I have the heat I like when and where needed. The house is extremely comfortable, and because of the insulation and infrared panels, we operate the system at only 16-18degC air temperature, but still feel warm.

We experienced a range of challenges during the project, but the infrared was the simplest system to integrate with the programme, and the support from the Herschel team was exemplary at all times. The Select XL mirror units, and ceiling mounted panels look great and free up lots of wall space, which really helps in some of the rooms. I also like the zero maintenance of infrared, it’s both hi-tech yet very simple to live with. I’d urge anyone undertaking a new-build or refurbishment project to get in touch with Herschel and go for infrared”!

“Just to say I love the heaters! Completely surpassed all my expectations already. Exactly what I wanted but even better than I anticipated. I will definitely recommend them”.

“I wanted an efficient, cost effective and easy to install electric heating solution to complement a solar PV installation for my recent eco selfbuild in Cornwall and the Herschel infrared panels fitted the brief perfectly.

We are half way through our first winter and the panels are exceeding expectation, the house is warm and comfortable without knowing where or how it is being heated. The internet control and monitoring is fantastic, allowing us to pre-heat the house before anyone arrives and we can check temperatures of rooms when no-one is there, giving us peace of mind”.
