The Advantage IR2 Infrared Heater is an affordable, yet efficient way to heat your property. The heater provides you with high-powered heating elements for a lower price than other electric heaters and at the same time the benefits of far infrared heating. That means direct heating of surfaces, no glow or buzzing and efficient low radiant heating.
These Herschel Advantage infrared heaters are made from high quality ceramic heating elements that both direct and reflect the heat to a large surface area in the room. Typically they only take about 10 minutes to fire up to full heat and from then you should feel nice gentle warmth.
The Herschel IR2 Advantage infrared heater is a 1.3kW bar heater comprising of 2 650w ceramic elements. Much like its bigger brother (the IR3), the IR2 packs a lot more punch than panel heaters when you consider its size, making it ideal for larger spaces or outdoor patio heating.
This infrared heater gets going in approximately 10 minutes, at which point it starts emitting a nice amount of far infrared heat – a more efficient form of heating that traditional electric convection heating.
When the heater is installed it should face the ground at a 60 degree tilt, ideally positioned from 2 to 2.5 metres above ground. The reason we recommend this positioning is to give the heaters the maximum chance to spread the warm rays to the room – go too high and you limit the heating effectiveness or go too low and it may get too hot!
Perfect product to heat a car garage, a workshop or a high street retail shop. Can also be used as outside pub heaters.
