Heating passive houses with Infrared

Perfect heating for energy-efficient houses

Infrared Heating for Passive Houses

Infrared 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.

Heating Passive Houses with Infrared

Chances 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.

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.
