Manuals & Installation
The Herschel Advantage IR2 is designed for a wall mounted fitting only and must be installed by a professional electrician. Please ensure it is mounted as per the manufacturer’s guidelines: 2.3 – 2.5m from the floor and no lower, and at least 0.3m away from the ceiling. This heater is designed for installation in commercial or industrial spaces where it will be mounted well out of arm’s reach. This is because it has exposed heating elements, so every care should be taken to ensure that the appliance is installed in a location where there is no risk of accidental physical contact. Herschel Advantage ceramic heaters are not suitable for domestic applications.
Though infrared radiant heat is not affected by the movement of air, the sensation of far infrared can be offset by persistent gusts and breezes that may come in from open windows, doors or roller shutters. This is because wind-chill can cool your body quicker than the radiant heat will be able to replenish, so please bear these facts in mind when choosing an installation location for your heater. In ideal conditions, the Herschel Advantage IR2 will be able to heat areas up to 9m², however, this can be reduced by up to a third in exposed locations.
The IPX4 rating of this product means that it is protected against splashing water and is suitable for installation in outdoor locations. For an outdoor fitting, the manufacturer recommends installing this heater beneath a permanent shelter that extends at least 2m from the wall. The heater itself should be at least 0.3m from the shelter’s surface. This is to ensure the unit has a long service life and will be well protected against particularly harsh weather conditions.
To maximise the efficiency of your infrared heaters, we would highly recommend fitting them with additional controls. This can make them more versatile to use and also assist in reducing energy consumption to a minimum. We offer control units such as push-button timers, motion sensors and dimmers for outdoor heaters, as well as a wide range of thermostats for indoor installations. Though they may cost a little extra, heating controllers quickly pay for themselves by reducing your energy usage and your heating bills.
The Herschel Advantage IR2 comes with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

What You Will Need
The Advantage IR2 is a versatile infrared heater that covers a wide breadth of applications: indoor and outdoor. It’s equally at home installed in a warehouse or garage as it is mounted beneath the shelter of an outdoor loading area. This ceramic heater will deliver comfortable and consistent warmth for hard-to-heat spaces but without any of the orange glare that can be produced by other infrared solutions.
No other heating method is as effective as infrared when it comes to comfort heating for spacious interiors because it doesn’t rely on the movement of air to be felt. Convection heaters that work by producing warm air currents can be incredibly inefficient as heat is easily lost through draughts and poor insulation. Infrared radiation doesn’t have this issue. It travels through the air to warm people, surfaces and objects directly so all heat is transferred straight from the source to the end user. It’s a much more effective way of heating spacious, high heat-loss areas like warehouses, churches or garages, as infrared can be zoned and directed to specific areas that are occupied frequently without wasting energy warming the entire room.
Herschel ceramic heaters use far infrared heat to produce a comfortable sensation of warmth that can be felt on a deeper level compared to ordinary outdoor heaters. Their main advantage is that they combine the gentle heat of a domestic infrared solution but with a higher heat output that can project over large spaces. The ceramic elements take around five minutes to heat up because of the gentler form of infrared they use, but once they get to temperature, they provide pleasant heating that’s perfect for keeping staff, customers and clients warm throughout the day.
The Herschel Advantage IR2 is designed to be wall mounted well out of arm’s reach due to its exposed heating elements, and angled toward any key areas you want to keep heated. As such, its use should be restricted to commercial and industrial applications where there is no risk of contact. Its 1300W output gives it a potential heated zone of 9m² – perfect for warming workstations, warehouses and other large industrial spaces. The IR2 isn’t only effective because of its pleasant far infrared warmth; it also produces no visible light when in use, providing a completely discreet heating system that blends into the background.
As testament to the outstanding quality of Herschel’s products, all of their ceramic heaters come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
This heater has a smart powder-coated steel housing and black heating elements which give it an understated look suitable for almost any design scheme. No complex maintenance is required and the only upkeep necessary is the occasional dust down with a soft cloth to ensure the heater runs as smoothly as possible. For an indoor installation, we highly recommend pairing your ceramic heater with a Herschel iQ thermostatic controller, which will ensure your energy usage is kept as low as possible and provide you with more precision control over heat levels. Take a look at our fantastic range of indoor and outdoor controllers to get the most out of your infrared system.
