Herschel Infrared Where to use Student Accommodation

Student Accommodation

Slimline, wall or ceiling mounted infrared heaters for effective, easy to control warmth for students.

Space saving, silent, maintenance free heating for student accommodation

For student accommodation our panels are being chosen by leading universities and accommodation providers as well as private landlords.

Successful trials have shown that students prefer the feeling of infrared heat compared to the stuffiness associated with convection heaters and because the room itself is heated and not the air, our heaters reduce damp issues and provide a more consistent level of warmth. The ability to ceiling mount or place higher on the walls frees up valuable space for furniture and also reduces the risk of students covering the heaters.

Unlike convector heaters, our heaters are also completely silent. Extensive trials have shown savings of up to 20% on energy consumption and significant savings on maintenance.
