You only need basic DIY knowledge to install your Herschel Inspire panels. If you’re fitting your panels on the walls, you can use the template provided to drill holes and fix the brackets to the walls; then all you have to do is attach a plug head to the end of the cable. If you’re mounting the panels on the ceiling, they must be screwed to the ceiling joists or securely fitted into a suspended grid with suitable fixings.
For a discreet fitting with all wires and sockets hidden, you may prefer to have the panels hardwired by a qualified electrician. This is not a DIY job.
Herschel Inspire panels are suitable for use in bathrooms, provided they are hardwired by a professional electrician in an appropriate location. The panels are IP54 rated, which means they are protected against splashing water. Always defer to the manufacturer’s guidelines about the bathroom suitability of any product.
We always recommend installing your panels with thermostatic controls. A thermostat will control the heat output of your panel, ensuring your rooms stay at the right temperature without wasting energy. A thermostat with programming functionality will also allow you to schedule your heating, helping you save energy by heating only occupied rooms. The Herschel iQ system is a great choice for Inspire panels, giving you thermostat control from one central location. Herschel iQ receivers must be hardwired, however alternative plug-in controllers are available.
This panel has a heat reach of approximately 2.5 – 3m.
Take care when installing multiple electric radiators or heaters to ensure you do not overload the ring main of your property. If you are unsure, consult a qualified electrician. Electric radiators and heaters can also be connected to your mains supply with a fused spur. This is not a DIY task and must be undertaken by an electrician.
Herschel Inspire Infrared Panels come with a 10 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

What You Will Need
Herschel Inspire White Infrared Panels provide a versatile infrared heating system, with nine sizes of slimline panel which can be fitted on walls and ceilings. This 550w panel is one of the mid-sized heaters in this range and is perfect for smaller living rooms, home offices and exercise rooms.
The Inspire collection is Herschel’s range of premium infrared panels, crafted to an exceptional degree of quality and designed to last for decades. Whatever interior design scheme your room may have, you can be sure the white Inspire will fit right in with its understated white powder finish and lightweight aluminium frame. However, if the plain white finish of the Inspire isn’t quite your style, you can customise your panels however you want using heat-resistant paint. Get creative and make a bespoke statement piece for every room.
Unlike many other traditional heating methods, infrared panels come with a range of installation options: either mount them on the ceiling or fit them to the wall like a picture frame. Their slim 25mm housings make them fantastic space-saving alternatives, and by mounting them on the ceiling, they can even be used in children’s rooms or public spaces where they’ll be kept well out of reach. Inspire panels reach a temperature range of 85 – 95 °C to deliver comfortable far infrared heat that’s perfect for everyday heating indoors.
Inspire panels can be wall mounted DIY with only a few basic tools, and by fitting a plug to the cable, you can even install them yourself with minimal effort. However, if you prefer a wire-free finish or want to use your heater in a bathroom, you can also have them hardwired by a professional electrician.
Our range of Herschel Inspire white infrared panels includes nine sizes: 250w, 350w, 420w, 550w, 750w, 820w, 900w, 1200w and 1250w.
Thermostats & Controllers
Herschel Inspire panels do not come with in-built controls. This is to protect the lifespan of the products, which will usually extend for decades, well beyond the 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. Rugged and durable, with no moving parts, your Herschel Inspire panels should outlive any digital components. It’s for this reason that we sell thermostats, timers and programmers separately. Your controllers wire in separately, and you can replace them as many times as you want without damaging the panels. This also gives you the freedom to choose exactly how you want to control your panels – collectively or individually, automatically or manually, remotely or directly.
We always recommend installing your panels with a programmable thermostat. Thermostats monitor and maintain temperatures, whilst programmers allow you to set each panel to a heating schedule with different temperatures at different times of the day. This will drastically reduce your energy usage, and ensures your rooms are comfortable whenever you need them. Infrared panels with thermostatic controls can be up to 60% more efficient than traditional convection heating systems.
Benefits of Far Infrared
Infrared panels give off most of their heat as far infrared radiation. This is a gentle, natural form of heat which travels at a similar wavelength to the heat given off by our bodies. Far infrared feels gentle but is easily absorbed by our bodies, making it one of the most efficient ways to heat homes and offices. Unlike outdoor infrared products which give off visible light and a more intense form of infrared heat, far infrared remains comfortable for hours on end – a luxurious heating solution that’s ideal for all your main living spaces. Other uses for far infrared include spas, yoga studios and incubators for babies.
Infrared heating is growing in popularity all the time as home and business owners recognise the unique benefits and unparalleled energy efficiency offered by these versatile panels. Radiant heat warms people, objects and surfaces directly, minimising the heat loss through draughts and the circulation of air. Radiant heat allows you to zone your heating, and it can also reduce damp and prevent the circulation of dust – the ideal heating solution for allergy sufferers. The panels are durable, require no maintenance and are the natural choice to pair with solar panels for 100% carbon free heating.
