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. Each panel comes with a 2.5m cable, however you will need to purchase and attach a plug separately. 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 Select XL panels have an IP rating of IP45 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.
Care must always be taken when connecting multiple radiators or heaters to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are unsure, contact a qualified electrician for advice. For a professional installation, cables can be shortened and the heater connected to the mains supply by a fused spur. This work must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
All Herschel Select XL Infrared Panel Heaters come with a 5 Year Warranty.

Herschel’s range of Select XL Glass Infrared Heating Panels make superb statement heaters in any environment, from corporate foyers to contemporary living rooms. Offering direct and reliable warmth from their ultra-slim housings, they’re a practical and attractive heating solution that will never fail to impress.
Infrared heaters maximise energy-efficiency by heating objects directly, just as the sun warms you on a winter's day despite the coldness of the air. By using gentle far infrared – the same heat emitted by the human body – Herschel Select XL panels provide comfortable warmth that’s superb for everyday heating. This version of the Select XL comes with a striking black glass finish for a sophisticated room feature sure to turn heads. The front panel reaches temperatures of between 85 – 95 °C, so you may wish to wall mount the panels out of reach if you have young children or if you’re using the panels in a busy space.
Herschel infrared heaters are easy to install with very little DIY knowledge required. Each heater comes with an integrated cable, so all you have to do is purchase and attach a separate plug, mount your panel and you're ready to get started.
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.
