  • Manuals & Installation

    Herschel Aspect heaters must be hardwired by a professional electrician. The Herschel XL2 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.

    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 Aspect XL2 can heat up to 9m2. 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 Aspect XL2 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 Aspect XL2 is a highly efficient ceramic heater with a stylish yet discreet modern design. Provides a professional heating solution for covered outdoor areas and hard-to-heat indoor spaces. The Aspect XL distinguishes itself from other ceramic heaters by sporting an integrated safety grille, making this product an excellent heating choice for larger domestic and commerical spaces where people may be within close proximity to the appliance.

Herschel Aspect infrared heaters use Ceramicx CHE convex ceramic heating elements paired with aluminised steel reflectors to generate heat fast and project it effectively into the surrounding area. These heaters are designed to maximise comfort: they heat up quickly, reaching full operating temperatures within five minutes, and warm you directly, with a natural heat that feels pleasantly like the warmth from the sun.

With a sleek and slimline design in powder-coated aluminium, the XL2 is unsurpassed in its provision of stylish, economical heating. The black glazed ceramic elements give off no visible light, making the heater much more discreet than cheaper, glowing quartz heaters. The innovative heat resistant safety grille stays cool and protects careless fingers from the heater’s hot elements, whilst an IP rating of IPX4 guards against ingress from splashing water.

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, warehouses, function rooms, conservatories, factories and portacabins. 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 the XL2 blends easily into sophisticated design schemes.

The XL2 is designed for wall mounting and must be installed by a professional electrician. Once fitted, Herschel Aspect heaters require the bare minimum of maintenance; all you need to do is keep them clean. Solid state elements and the highest standards of manufacturing guarantee a long-lifespan, backed by a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Herschel Aspect 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 Aspect XL2 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.

Herschel’s latest range of outdoor infrared heaters represent the absolute pinnacle of energy efficient outdoor heating. In the Aspect series, Herschel have used their world-leading expertise to develop a range which is 20% more efficient than their preceding ranges, significantly expanding the capacity for cost savings in commercial and domestic heating. The wider spread of warmth provided by their unique convex ceramic emitters is completely unique to Herschel and makes their heaters more efficient than many others on the market. 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.
