City of Westminster College, in Paddington Green, London, has installed Herschel infrared heating at its flagship campus to warm the reception staff desk. The area gets cold in the winter and the existing heaters had become inefficient and ineffective as
Herschel Far Infrared heaters require no maintenance or servicing. Our heaters use solid state elements unlike water-based heating or fan-assisted systems, which often require annual servicing, inspection and repair costs.
For central heating systems like boilers and heat pumps, a single failure in one part of the system causes a complete failure of the whole system and often a lengthy wait without heat for expensive repairs.
Infrared heaters are very reliable, but also being a component-based system (independent units in each room), don’t possess a single point of failure: a considerable advantage in winter.
Many systems also have a relatively short life expectancy (e.g. 10 years for boilers and heat pumps, even assuming servicing has been performed regularly) requiring replacement of the entire system. Infrared heaters have a very long life expectancy and replacement – if ever required – can be one by one.
