Herschel Infrared Where to use Churches & Village Halls

Churches & Village Halls

Herschel has a track record of heating solutions for places of worship, village halls, wedding venues and barns.

Our Heating Solutions for Churches and Public Halls

Churches and public halls have unique heating requirements. Older buildings in particular are expensive to heat and legacy heating systems are often costly to maintain.

Our space heating range offers solutions which are relatively inexpensive to install, economical to run, have a long lifetime and are maintenance free.

Our infrared heaters directly heat people and the thermal mass of the building, meaning no energy is wasted heating large volumes of air. Instead, the infrared heat radiates over the required area and is absorbed by people and objects within the zone. By heating in this was it is possible to provide the heat when needed and where it is needed. For example, it is possible to heat the congregation throughout the service but not waste energy heating the church when is it not in use. The same principle applies to village halls which can be heated only when in use with rapid warm up times. Infrared is also good for preserving buildings because it warms the building itself helping to reduce damp levels.

Unlike older quartz and halogen infrared heaters, our range are zero light or warm glow which provide a very gentle feeling of warmth without any unsightly glare. In addition they all have long life heating elements which saves money on maintenance replacement of heaters. Heaters can be wall mounted, ceiling mounted or suspended. Our heaters are high quality, built to last and not only perform well but also look great. Our Pulsar is extremely popular with Churches and village halls or choose from the rest of the range for your requirements.

For areas such as washrooms, canteens and kitchens with lower ceilings, we offer our Select range of slimline panels. These can be ceiling or wall mounted and are a neater and more efficient heating solution that traditional electric convection heaters.

Our control options range from simple push button timers and remote controls to whole building solutions.

Testimonials

The Colorado R heaters have been perfect. Our electrician had no problem connecting them so installation was quick. The groups who meet in the room have been so grateful. The heaters are logical to turn on and adjust; the heat-up time is almost instant and the heat level is comfortable. It’s not a drying heat. They are absolutely silent – in addition to the discussion groups, we now hold meditation sessions in the room, something we couldn’t do with the portable fan heaters.

“The best thing for our church. The old infrared heaters we had were terrible, no more glaring light, no buzzing noise and no more complaining from our elderly congregation of being cold. Really quick heat up times and have saved us a fortune against our old running costs as well as reducing the power we used by 40%. We are now looking at the rest of the areas in our church, after having trialled Herschel in the main rectory. Adam and his team at Herschel have done a brilliant job and should be very proud”.

John Horton, Church Warden, Salisbury Park United Reformed Church,

“Having researched the different forms of heating for our church we decided that Herschel Far infrared heaters were the company that we were most interested in.
On contacting Matthew Dodds, of Herschel, we found him most helpful and informative.  The online assessment of our particular requirements was most useful.  The heaters are now up and running and working just as we hoped.  All the church members seem to be very impressed.
I cannot praise Matthew Dodds and Herschel highly enough as they are very efficient with nothing being too much trouble”.
Peter Rothwell – Bekesbourne Church

“The heaters in the barn are
absolutely fantastic. I cannot tell you how pleased we are with them. They are working better than we could ever imagine.“
