Herschel Far Infrared Panel Heaters
You have just purchased the latest advance in Far Infrared heating from Herschel Infrared Ltd - a world leader in Far
Infrared heating. Herschel panel heaters work using Far Infrared technology. The components are of high quality, are
environmentally sustainable and are designed to last for many years without any need for servicing.
Please read this manual thoroughly before use. With the correct installation and operation, your panel heater will give you
satisfaction for many years to come. If you do not understand or are unsure of any information contained in this manual
please contact us for clarification at any time.
The Herschel panel heater works by producing Far Infrared heat. This is different to a conventional convection heater.
When using the heater for the first time, the cold surroundings (ceiling, floor, furniture, walls} in your building have to be
heated up first before the heater becomes fully effective. The heater should be kept powered on until the desired room
temperature is reached.
Depending upon the ambient temperature and characteristics of the building, this process can last from a few hours up
to a few days. Once all solid materials are warmed up and the room is at the desired temperature, the heater can be
regulated by a thermostat (not included with the heater).
For efficient and energy-saving heating performance we recommend the use of our Herschel IQ system or a wireless
The Herschel panel heater is designed to be used as a wall or ceiling heater. Careful following of the advice in this manual
