  • Manuals & Installation

    View Herschel IR3 datasheet and installation manual here.

    Herschel Advantage heaters must be hardwired by a professional electrician. The Herschel IR3 is suitable only for wall mounting. It should not be ceiling mounted. Ensure all fitting guidelines provided in the manual are adhered to when the product is installed. This heater has exposed heating elements and should only be used in commercial and industrial applications where it will be mounted high out of reach. It is not suitable for domestic installation or anywhere there is risk of physical contact with the heater.

    Please note that the effective heating range of this heater will be impacted by draughts, air flow and weather conditions. Although infrared heat does not heat the air, and will provide the same level of heating to the objects in its path regardless of air flow, persistent powerful draughts will nonetheless cool you faster than the heat can warm you. In ideal conditions in an indoor space, the Advantage IR3 can heat up to 12m2. In an exposed location, this span may be reduced by up to a third. Do not expect the same comfort besides a gaping warehouse door as you would in a sheltered corner: common sense should prevail.

    It is important to consider the heater’s IP rating when fitting in outdoor or exposed locations. The Advantage IR3 is splashproof, offering protection against splashing water. This is the basic level of protection required to install a heater outdoors. However, Herschel recommend installing the unit under cover to help it operate at maximum efficiency, increase its longevity, and protect it from the cumulative effects of driving rain, frost, wind, and water contamination.

    To ensure that you get the most from your infrared heaters we strongly recommend purchasing with push button, motion sensor or thermostat control for every heater. These heating controllers will switch the heater on or off as needed to maintain the desired temperature – preventing power wastage and saving you money on your heating bills. This small investment will ensure you get maximum efficiency from your heaters with minimum wasted energy.

    If you are at all unsure how many heaters you need, which type to use and where to install them, we will be very happy to provide you with an expert quote tailored to your property. All quotes are free; no project is too big or too small.

  • Warranty

The Herschel Advantage IR3 is a great value far infrared heater, designed to deliver comfortable and efficient radiated heat to large indoor areas and covered outdoor spaces. Perfect for warehouses and workshops; ideal for covered loading bays and sheltered storage spaces.

Herschel Advantage infrared heaters use Ceramicx FTE convex ceramic heating elements paired with aluminised steel reflectors to efficiently generate far infrared heat and direct it out into the room. These heaters maximise comfort and efficiency by heating up within 5 minutes and warming you directly with a natural heat that feels like the warmth from the sun.

Utilitarian yet discreet, the white IR3 sports a hard-wearing design in high quality stainless steel. The white glazed ceramic elements give off no visible light, making the heater much subtler than cheaper, glowing quartz heaters. An IP rating of IPX4 protects the heater against splashing water and ensures it’s safe for outdoor fitting.

Ceramic heaters are a great choice for covered outdoor locations and draughty indoor spaces which are difficult to heat by conventional means. Like all infrared heaters, the radiated heat they produce is highly efficient, warming directly without needing to heat up the air. But unlike glowing quartz heaters, which use a higher frequency of infrared, the far infrared radiation used in ceramic heaters is gentle enough to provide comfortable heating for hours on end. This is ideal for hard-to-heat indoor spaces which are occupied for prolonged periods of time, such as churches, function rooms, conservatories, industrial units, portacabins and yoga studios. The gentler level of heat can also be effective in covered outdoor spaces such as arcades, stadium terraces and restaurant patios, where the discreet design of ceramic heaters make them a more tasteful choice than cheaper heaters which give off an orange glare.

The Advantage IR3 is designed for wall mounting and must be installed by a professional electrician. Due to its exposed heating elements, this product is only suitable for use in commercial and industrial locations where there is no risk of accidental contact with the heater. Once fitted, the IR3 requires the bare minimum of maintenance; all you need to do is keep it clean. Solid state elements and the highest standards of manufacturing guarantee a long-lifespan, backed by a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Herschel Advantage heaters are compatible with most thermostatic controllers which offer increased efficiency and energy-saving potential. For indoor spaces, Herschel’s iQ system is ideal, offering thermostatic control to an unlimited number of heaters.

Far Infrared Heating

The Herschel Advantage IR3 uses far infrared radiation to deliver optimum comfort. This is the most natural, comfortable and efficient form of infrared on the market.

Infrared radiation maximises energy-efficiency by heating objects directly, passing through the air to heat people and objects, just as the sun warms you on a winter's day despite the coldness of the air. But unlike sunlight, which includes harmful UV rays, infrared is a pure, natural heat form which is entirely safe, with many health benefits. Infrared sidesteps the disadvantages of conventional outdoor heating products – which heat by convection and expend huge quantities of energy reheating air which is immediately lost to cooler spaces. Because infrared heaters do not need to compensate for heat lost in this manner, they can operate at much lower temperatures than other forms of outdoor heating, saving you money on your heating bills.

Far infrared is a longwave form of infrared which is gentler but more easily absorbed by the body than the shortwave infrared given off by glowing quartz heaters. It is the most efficient choice for indoor and covered outdoor spaces because it warms thoroughly and comfortably, with all heat absorbed and none wasted. In comparison, shortwave radiation feels more intense against your skin, but won’t warm you to the core. Far infrared is the same frequency of heat given off by our bodies: it is natural, gentle, safe, and so effective that it is used in incubators for babies.

Boasting near total energy efficiency, with almost 100% of the energy used by the heater converted into effective heat, Herschel infrared heaters offer an exceptionally efficient heating solution for outdoor and indoor spaces.
