All consumer heating requirements assessed by a leading student accommodation provider. Occupiers compared Herschel to their previous convector heater (feedback in May 2016 following a trial over the winter period).
On the levels of heat/temperatures:
“Really very good, very satisfied”. “Works a lot better than the old heater & seems to hold the heat better”.
On the ‘feel’ of the heat:
“It felt like a warm summer’s day, not like a heater, & was very comfortable”. “Old heaters were more stuffy, this one felt a lot better”. “I can feel the heat all over the room, & it feels like being surrounded by warm water rather than having a heater on”.
On the speed of warming up:
“Heats very quickly, literally in matter of minutes. I can turn it on go & make a cup of tea, & the room will feel warm when I get back”. “Very quickly, its hot in 5 minutes”.
On heat loss:
“Not a problem”. “The room seemed to stay warm for a long time”.
On changing anything:
“No. It looks so much better & takes up much less space than the old heater”. “Not really, I prefer the new heater”.
On temperature overnight:
“Ok”. “No problem”. “Its been fine overnight”.
