    Herschel ceramic heaters will need to be wall mounted by a professional electrician. Please read over the product’s manual carefully to ensure your installation adheres with the manufacturer’s guidelines. Advantage heaters should be mounted between 2.3 – 2.5m from the floor and no lower. Please ensure that the heaters are installed at least 0.3m from the ceiling. These ceramic heaters have exposed heating elements and should only be used in commercial and industrial applications where they will be installed out of reach. They should not be used for domestic applications, nor should they be used in any space where accidental contact with the heater is a possibility.

    The gentle heat of far infrared is more easily impacted by draughts and breezes of cold air because wind-chill can cool your body quicker than the heater can compensate for this loss. For this reason, we would always recommend installing ceramic heaters in a sheltered location to ensure they operate at maximum efficiency, and not next to warehouse shutter doors or frequently opened windows etc. In ideal conditions, the Advantage IR2 can heat up to 9m² and the Advantage IR3 can heat up to 12m² — however, this can be reduced by a third if fitted in an exposed location.

    Advantage Far Infrared Heaters have a splashproof rating of IPX4 and are suitable for most outdoor installations, nevertheless, it’s recommended that these heaters be fitted underneath shelter to ensure that they operate as effectively as possible and are well protected against dust and debris. For an outdoor installation, these heaters should be placed under a permanent shelter that protrudes at least 2m from the wall.

    We strongly recommend fitting any infrared heater with additional controls to help you get the most out of your product. Motion sensors, push button timers, and thermostatic controls for indoor heaters all provide a greater range of heat management and can help to reduce running costs by limiting energy usage as much as possible. Control units do cost a little bit extra but the energy saving potential they provide makes them a more than worthy investment.

Herschel Advantage Far Infrared Heaters provide an ideal source of warmth for hard-to-heat areas, such as factories, large showrooms and industrial units. These models come with black ceramic heating elements for a particularly discreet appearance; models with white elements are also available.

Comfortable Heat

Herschel’s Advantage range uses engineered ceramic plates designed for efficient heat distribution and can reach comfort temperatures in under 5 minutes. To enhance their performance, they also incorporate aluminised steel reflectors which assist in projecting heat outwards to where it’s most needed. The directed, gentle warmth provided by these heaters makes them a versatile solution for a number of applications – from storage facilities, to loading bays, to workshops.

Herschel Advantage heaters have an IPX4 splashproof rating suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations. The glare-free heating elements and compact housings make them ideal for areas that need an unobtrusive heat source. As these heaters use a gentler form of infrared, they’re best used in outdoor locations that are sheltered or partially sheltered to ensure their effects aren’t lessened by wind-chill.

The 1300W Advantage can heat a maximum area of 9m² with its double heating elements, whereas the 1950W Advantage can heat a maximum area of 12m² with triple heating elements — both can be used alongside other Herschel heaters to provide effective heat over a larger space.

Installation

These heaters are suitable for wall mounted fitting only and will need to be installed by a professional electrician. However, once installed, Advantage heaters will require barely any maintenance aside from the occasional dust down to keep them clean. These Herschel Advantage IR ceramic heaters have exposed heating elements and are intended for use in commercial and industrial spaces where they will be mounted well out of reach.

For indoor spaces, we would highly recommend pairing your ceramic heaters with one of Herchel’s iQ thermostatic controllers for an increased range of heat management options.

Why choose a ceramic infrared heater?

Infrared is an unbeatable outdoor heating solution as it travels directly from the heat source until it comes into contact with a person or object. Radiant heat works in exactly the same way as the heat we feel from the sun, keeping us warm on a cool day even if the ambient air temperature isn’t very high. It’s a direct A-to-B heat transfer that doesn’t rely on the movement of air molecules to be effective and is the perfect means of warming draughty or open-plan rooms that are difficult to heat. 

Shortwave infrared used by glowing quartz heaters is the most effective way of combating cooler outdoor temperatures because of its higher intensity. However, the type of heat shortwave provides isn’t comfortable for long-term use, and what’s more, it only provides a shallow sensation of warmth over the surface of your skin. Ceramic heaters use a gentle form of radiant heat known as longwave or far infrared, which is so safe that it’s even used in hospital incubators. Far infrared uses the same wavelength and frequency as the heat emitted by our own bodies, which is why these heaters provide a more lasting and satisfying sensation of warmth that other heaters can’t replicate. 

Although the infrared they use is a little less intense, the strength of ceramic heaters lies in their ability to be used over long periods of time without any form of discomfort. Ceramic heaters are excellent primary heat sources for industrial areas like workshops and warehouses, or even commercial areas such as cafés, bars and showrooms. Wherever you need a robust heating solution for busy areas which are often in use, ceramic heaters are usually the best choice.
