Manuals & Installation
All our electric heating panels can be easily fitted with basic DIY knowledge. They simply screw to the wall and plug into a normal 13amp socket. Please note that Herschel Inspire panels are not supplied with a plug - you will need to purchase this separately and attach it to the cable if you want your heater to have a plug-in fitting. A template is provided to show you where to put the screws. If you prefer a discreet fitting with no wires showing you may want to have the panels professionally installed by a registered electrician.
Herschel Inspire panels have an IP rating of IP54 so are suitable for use in bathrooms provided they are hardwired by a professional electrician. You must not use plug-in electric heaters in bathrooms or wetrooms. Always defer to the manufacturer’s guidelines about the bathroom suitability of any product.
To ensure you get the most from your panel heaters we strongly recommend that you purchase a timer or thermostat for every panel. With thermostat control, the heater will automatically switch on or off to maintain the desired temperature. Thermostat control also allows you to set a different temperature for every room and programme when you want the radiators to come on and off. This small investment will ensure that you get maximum efficiency from your panels and minimum wasted energy.
We always advise consulting a qualified electrician before having multiple radiators or heaters connected to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are at all unsure about the scale of your project, a professional will be able to provide in-depth guidance.
All Herschel Inspire Infrared Panel Heaters come with a 10 Year Warranty.

What You Will Need
Efficient, stylish and discreet, Herschel Inspire Mirror Panels use far infrared heat to warm rooms comfortably and efficiently. The heated glass makes them ideal for use in bathrooms, where they’ll resist condensation even in the most humid conditions. This 550w version is perfect for larger bathrooms or bedrooms.
Herschel Inspire Mirror Infrared Panels are fully functional, stylish household mirrors – but when switched on, they also provide energy efficient infrared heat, one of the most economical ways of heating a space. The panels are lightweight and slimline, comprised of a sheet of heated mirror glass and a steel rear panel fitted with easy mounting points for DIY installation. The heated glass is ideal for bathrooms, providing a bathroom mirror that won’t fog up, even after a long bath or a hot shower.
Herschel Inspire infrared heating panels are easy to install as a DIY job. All you have to do is purchase a separate plug, attach it to the cable and mount the panel on the wall. Full installation instructions are provided. Alternatively, if you’re using in a bathroom, or you prefer a more discreet fitting with all wires hidden, the panels can be hardwired by a qualified electrician.
Controlling your infrared panels
To optimise the energy-saving potential of our panel heaters, we recommend that all customers fit their panels with a thermostat. With thermostat control, the heater will automatically switch on or off to maintain the desired temperature. With good insulation, this means the panels only use power for a fraction of the time – creating massive energy saving potential. They also allow you to set a different temperature for every room, if needed, keeping busy areas comfortable and avoiding wasting energy heating empty rooms. With thermostat control, infrared heating can be up to 60% more efficient than conventional methods of heating. We sell thermostats separately because our panels have a much longer lifespan than most thermostats and, with electronic technology always changing, we want to ensure you have a choice of the best thermostats available without compromising the lifespan of your heater.
Benefits of far infrared heating
Infrared panels, like radiators, can be used throughout your house as an efficient and practical whole-home heating system. The main difference between radiators and infrared panels is that radiators heat using a combination of convection and radiation, and infrared panels purely heat through radiation.
So why is this a good thing? Well, there are many benefits to radiated heat. Radiation heats directly: travelling out from the heater to warm objects and surfaces without raising the temperature of the air. This is more efficient than convection because you’re not reliant on filling a space with warm air to raise temperatures, which can be expensive to maintain if your rooms are large or draughty because the air must be constantly reheated. With radiation, you don’t need to heat the whole space; whilst convection always heats the ceiling first, because heat rises, with infrared panels you don’t need to heat the ceiling at all – you can direct heat at the living levels of the room so all the energy you use goes straight toward keeping you warm. Radiant heat is absorbed and then re-radiated from the objects and surfaces in your room, so the space becomes in effect a 360° radiator – luxuriously comfortable and very efficient. Warm walls and surfaces helps prevent damp, whilst no convection means no currents of dust moving around the air – a major benefit for allergy sufferers!
The type of radiation used in our Herschel panels is called far infrared. This is the same type of heat given off by our own bodies – a gentle, natural heat which we absorb easily. Unlike sunlight, which includes harmful UV rays, far infrared is pure heat and totally harmless: in fact, it’s so safe, it’s even used in incubators for babies. For the perfect eco heating system, use the panels with electricity generated from solar panels for totally sustainable heating with zero carbon emissions.
