Warmer, Longer, For Less; The Future of Heating – Today

In 1800, William Herschel was testing filters to help him observe sun spots. When he used a red filter, he found there was a lot of heat produced by the light. Interested to discover more, Herschel split the sunlight into its different colours using a prism to measure the temperature of each.

He positioned another thermometer outside the last visible colour Red, as a control to measure room temperature. However, Herschel found that this final thermometer was reading more than all the other thermometers in the visible light bands!

He therefore concluded there must be a heat-producing invisible wavelength below (“infra”) the colour red and it became called “InfraRed”.

We are building on Herschel’s legacy and are pioneering the use of Far Infrared to heat people and buildings in more efficient, effective, stylish and comfortable ways than many traditional forms of heating.

We call it “Comfort Heating”

Our range of Far Infrared heaters is the most comprehensive in the world. We have high quality heaters to suit almost any application, inside and out, and combined with our control systems, are at the forefront of the revolution in heating.

Herschel’s Guide to Outdoor Heating

The COVID19 pandemic has meant that the safest way to socialise is outdoors. The problem in more southerly climes is that even on the nicest of days it very often gets chilly or cold on an evening and if you want to enjoy socialising outside, outdoor heating is a must.
