Unlike central heating systems, our heaters are controlled on an individual basis with a thermostat controller in each room. This ensures you only heat the rooms you need heated, when you want them heated. Precise heating in this way avoids wasting energy and minimizes your heating costs. Our controls offer full 7 day programming and feature the latest energy saving technology such as open window detection and remote app control.  Our controls are designed and made by us specifically for use with our heaters.

Our infrared panel heaters operate by reaching the required surface temperature to produce the optimum far infrared heat output. They warm up and cool down rapidly and are either on or off (they cannot be turned up or down). They require a separate controller located away from the heater to accurately measure the room temperature and send commands to turn the heater on or off depending on the desired room temperature and the heating schedule.

HERSCHEL iQ controls

Our Inspire range of panels are designed for professional installation only and must be controlled with our Herschel iQ controllers. The panels are directly wired either to our MD2 hard wired thermostat. Full app control is available for MD2 using the SmartLife app.

Our Herschel iQ range can also be used to control our space heater range such as the Summit and Aspect.
