What is Socially Sustainable Heating?
All comfort heaters are basically Socially Sustainable products because they satisfy the basic human need for warmth and don’t represent a form of exclusivity or lifestyle choice like a sauna would for example. (It is still a heater, but not a necessity).
Whilst Herschel Infrared is recognised as a Premium heater brand, we produce a wide range of panels that includes a range offering all the benefits of Infrared Heating but at the lowest possible cost. We protect them all with generous warranty terms. (Offering the market cheap, poor quality heaters with poor warranty terms is not socially sustainable).
A Socially Sustainable product should also enhance the quality of life of its users. In this respect all comfort heaters are not the same. Convection heaters that primarily heat the air and leave the fabric of the building basically cold, encourage the causes of condensation, damp and mould and produce stuffy atmospheres, which tend to worsen quality of life and healthiness of their users. Herschel Infrared works the other way around by primarily heating objects, not air, therefore reducing the causes of condensation, damp, mould and stuffiness, and therefore enhancing the quality of life and healthiness of its users. Herschel Infrared heaters are also “Low Electrosmog” appliances, meaning they do not contribute to harmful electronic signals and emissions in a household.
