The Advantage IR 1300 / 1950 Infrared Heaters make an affordable, yet efficient way to heat workspaces. 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. They require 5 – 8 minutes to reach full heat output, emitting an effective gentle warmth.

The Herschel Advantage IR series are Far Infrared space heaters designed for heating larger enclosed spaces, such as workshops. Available in two powers: 1300W two-element heater (IR2) and a 1950W three element heater (IR3).

The Advantage IR are available with a silver body and white ceramic elements, or with a black body and black ceramic elements.

INSTALLATION AND POSITIONING

When the heater is installed it should face the ground at a 60 degree tilt, ideally positioned from 2.3 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. The higher the unit is positioned, the larger the heated area, but the less intense the sensation of heat. The lower the unit is positioned, the smaller the heated area but the more intense the sensation of heat.

Perfect product to heat a car garage or a workshop. This heater does not have a grill and is not suitable for household or similar use.

    Expensive but seem to work well. Got two last Feb to heat our cafe that just wouldn’t heat up. Customers seem happy with them but obviously more expensive than regular panel heaters

    I have used the heaters for almost 2 winters and still working well. it takes a couple of days to get used to the principles, but it is ok after that.

    As I use it in my workshop, me and my assistant tend to use it on a timer switch or an override mechanism I installed when the days outside are a bit colder. Only comment is that I probably should have gone for one IR3 plus the IR2, but will be coming back and ordering another IR2 which isnt really a problem.

    We are very happy with these infrared heaters. They are not to be confused with the near red infrared heaters (these are the ones that glow that you find in beer gardens etc) so the heat they produce is far less intense, but it is a nice, comfortable heat and works well in our conservatory.

    If you are looking for a commercial infrared heater then look no further than the Herschel IR2. Over 1.3kw of power but it is not near infrared (the glowing infrared). The heaters get warm and through the heat out but it is nowhere near as intense as near infrared. Would really recommend – we have 6 units in our workshop and even when the weather is very cold the IR2 heaters work extremely well.

    We installed this infrared heater in our conservatory and it has made a lovely difference. Without heating you can’t really sit in that room during the winter, but with this heater the temperature in there is pretty good and I would only not sit in there if it was in minus degrees during the winter (a little like outside today actually!). It sits quite nicely where the ceiling meets the wall so is pretty inconspicuous.

    Worth mentioning it comes with a wire and a UK plug, so recommend you get an electrician to install it properly so it operates on switch.

    1.3kW is a nice output. Installed 1 in my shed and it heats the room up nice and quick even when it is really cold outside. Previously used the infrared heaters that glow red, this one isn’t as intense, but still does the job extremely well.
