LOT 20 is part of European Energy Reduction legislation. The aim is to improve the energy efficiency and environmental impact of local space heaters in residential and commercial buildings. All heater types have been assessed to give each technology its
Reduced energy use
Greatly reduced energy use. Experience shows that a sufficiently insulated building fitted with infrared systems and controls can expect significant reductions in energy usage. Almost 100% of the electrical energy used by Infrared heaters is converted into heat and a kilowatt of radiant heat possesses superior heat transfer potential than a kilowatt of energy pumped into the air. This is the fundamental basis of IR’s reduced energy use.
Our Infrared systems offer owners an unprecedented level of control over their property’s temperature and energy use, and offer higher thermal comfort levels. Compared with other gas oil or electric solutions, Infrared heating saves between 30 – 60% of the annual energy usage.
Tendring District Council have recently gathered the results, and tenant feedback, from an independent trial they carried out on Herschel Select infrared panels installed within a council owned apartment. The trial took place in Essex over 14 months, incorporating 2
Having a keen interest in self build projects and sustainable architecture, we were thrilled when Charlie Luxton chose to install Herschel infrared panels for his latest eco self build project in the UK. Herschel Inspire White 1200W infrared panel shown
