How easy is it to install Herschel infrared panels?
Herschel Infrared panels are easy to install and come with a very comprehensive set of instructions to assist you. Whilst it is possible for individual heater panels to be installed by a capable DIY-er, we recommend more complex and whole house installations are performed by a qualified electrician or installation company. Things to consider when planning to install an infrared panel are:
- Provision of a suitably-sized electrical source. If you are unsure, seek your electrician’s advice;
- Locate the panel according to operating heights and minimum separation distances specified in the instruction manual;
- Ensure enough strength exists in the wall / ceiling where you are going to hang the heater;
- Follow any other precautions listed in the instructions.
Installation hardware and guides for measuring and installing the mounting brackets are included in the box with the heaters. Instructions are also always available for download from the website.
This makes Infrared significantly easier to install than oil or gas boilers, heat pumps, underfloor heating etc and implies only minor disruption to your house.
As Infrared panels are an electric installation, then if you are in any doubt, you should seek the assistance of a suitably qualified electrician. Herschel has a network of Accredited Installers who would be happy to help you.
