  • Manuals & Installation

    This Herschel ceramic heater 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. This product should be installed between 2.3 – 2.5m from the floor and no lower. It should also be installed at least 0.3m away from the surface of the ceiling. This Herschel ceramic heater has exposed heating elements and should only be used in commercial and industrial applications where it will be installed out of reach. It should not be used for domestic applications, nor should it 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. This product can heat a 9m² area when installed in ideal conditions but this can be reduced by a third if fitted in an exposed location.

    The Herschel Advantage IR2 Far Infrared Heater has a splashproof rating of IPX4 and is suitable for most outdoor installations, nevertheless, it’s recommended that this heater be fitted underneath shelter to ensure that it operates as effectively as possible and is well protected against dust and debris. When installed outside, please ensure that it is fitted beneath a permanent shelter that extends at least 2m away 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.

  • Warranty

  • What You Will Need

The Herschel Advantage IR2 Far Infrared Heater provides an ideal source of warmth for hard-to-heat areas, such as factories, large showrooms and industrial units. This model comes with black ceramic heating elements for a particularly discreet appearance but is also available in white.

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.

The Herschel Advantage IR2 has an IPX4 splashproof rating suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations. The glare-free heating elements and compact housing make it ideal for areas that need an unobtrusive heat source. As this heater uses a gentler form of infrared, it’s best used in outdoor locations that are sheltered or partially sheltered to ensure its effects aren’t lessened by wind-chill. This product can heat a maximum area of 9m² with its 1300W output and can be used alongside other Herschel heaters to provide effective heat over a larger space.

All Herschel ceramic heaters are covered by a generous 5 Year Warranty, reflecting their exceptional quality and robust manufacture.

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

Herschel are a prominent manufacturer in the infrared heating industry and offer some of the most advanced ceramic heaters on the market. Exceptional quality, innovative design and effective heating elevate Herschel products over many other competitors and their diverse range ensures that all areas of your home and business are catered for. Their ceramic heaters boast near 100% efficiency and offer significant energy-saving potential when used alongside additional controls to reduce power consumption.

For indoor spaces, we would highly recommend pairing your ceramic heater 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.
