Portable Infrared Heaters

Comfort where you want it, when you want it

Herschel 220 Watt Under-desk heaterConvenient portable infrared heaters that deliver cosy, effective top-up warmth whilst being cheap to run and easy to set up.

Herschel’s infrared standing heaters, cost between 3 and 11 pence* per hour to run.

The heaters come with feet which are easy to put on and you just plug in to the nearest available mains socket for power. The Under Desk and Portable 500 Watt heaters both have an inbuilt-thermostat for automatic regulation of temperature. To operate the Select XLS 800 Watt portable panel heater, it’s very simple to pair it with the plugin thermostat (included) and set up your desired schedules.

Our 220 Watt Under Desk unit comes with a handy foot-operated switch and will fit neatly in a foot-well under a desk. Our larger 500 watt portable infrared panel is a larger variant without the foot switch and is great for setting up wherever you want a bit of extra comfort without making the heater a permanent fixture. Our 800 Watt Portable panel solution offers a low energy, simple solution that delivers cosy radiant warmth for those larger spaces.

All models can be connected to your home or office wifi to allow precise app control using the SmartLife app.

*Based on an average electricity tariff of 14 pence per hour.


Fully app controllable

Portable infrared heaters controllable with the Smart Life App

All freestanding panel heaters are fully app controllable.

Our 220 Watt Under desk heater and 500 Watt portable panel will work on their own using their own built-in thermostat, but for full energy efficiency and control, even when you’re away from home, we recommend you download the SmartLife App to your phone and use it to setup your heating on a schedule – and even control it along with other Herschel heaters in your house or office. Our Select XLS 800 Watt portable panel solution comes with our plugin thermostat which pairs simply to the integrated SMART-R receiver on the panel and can be operated via the thermostat on via the SmartLife App.

“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. ❤️❤️❤️

“Best heating I’ve ever had”

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

“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.
