“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 !
“So pleased with the final product”
Buying a house with night storage heaters called for a complete change in heating system. Herschel infrared heating panels provided an economical and environmental solution preferable to installing a gas boiler. Herschel were helpful and efficient throughout the process. We measured the rooms and they calculated what we needed, providing different options for the different model of panels.
The panels were easy to install and I am so pleased with the final product. They look elegant and unobtrusive on the ceiling; but provide instantly warming heat. Washing dries quickly, tiled floors feel warm beneath bare feet, and there are no radiators to clutter wall space. I love that I can control each panel from an app on my phone, meaning it is easy to heat up a room from the touch of a button. Best of all, when the electricity bill came, it was very reasonable.
“Such an amazing product”
Thank you for providing such an amazing product. So thoughtfully designed by your team and perfect for this project on every way. ❤️❤️❤️

“Doing my bit towards climate change”
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.
“Fantastic product and great service”
We have recently renovated our house and have an existing gas central heating system and an aga in the kitchen. We often work from home and didn’t want to have to heat the whole house just to get our study warm enough to work from. We therefore decided to purchase a Herschel heater to install in the study as it was so controllable (we can just heat the study) and we loved the design (can be used as a whiteboard too!). We also needed to top up the heating in the main sitting room and we didn’t want to install new pipework, so we purchased another Herschel heater which looks modern and stylish. Really impressed with the advice we received prior to the purchase. Our electricians found the heaters easy to install too. Would definitely recommend.

Can infrared heating replace a gas boiler?
Yes, Herschel Infrared heating can replace a gas boiler. It is a fantastic and practical alternative for those customers keen to get off gas to improve their carbon footprint and lower their carbon emissions or for those looking to replace their gas boiler and radiator system, as it nears end of life. Infrared heating panels are an electric heating solution that can very easily be powered by a 100% green energy tariff or alternatively through surplus on-site solar and battery storage, reducing reliance on the grid. Herschel panel heaters have many advantages over gas systems including no central point of failure, no leaks or heat losses through pipes plus they offer a more stylish and space-saving solution for homes.
Are infrared panels easy to install?
Infrared heating panels from Herschel are easy to install with several installation options to choose between. Herschel offers a range of Select XLS infrared panels that all come with the EASYFIX mounting system allowing for simple wall-mounting (and plug in to a mains socket) by keen DIY-ers. The Select XLS infrared panel range can also be professionally installed on a ceiling using a qualified electrician, requiring standard electrical not specialist skills, for a quick install. Inspire panels should be professionally installed and qualified electricians just need the provision of electricity and space to mount the panel heater.

What is the cheapest way to heat your house with electric?
The cheapest way to heat a house with electric is by using a technology that transforms electricity into heat efficiently. Infrared panel heating is a technology that uses electricity efficiently through direct transfer of the heat energy, rather than heating a volume of air. When considering which heating system may work best for particular requirements, it is essential to take into account total cost of ownership. Efficiency, capital outlay, servicing and maintenance requirements should all be considered and infrared heating panels provide a hugely compelling and competitive proposition for people. Herschel Infrared heating panels are a practical and efficient heating solution that is likely to be cheaper to install that other electric heating solutions. Herschel panel heaters also require no annual servicing.
