Perfect for small room

I purchased this item for my workspace, but it doesn't generate enough warmth for the larger area. Considering returning it. However, my husband finds it very effective in our bedroom, where it creates a cozy warmth.

Dear Duong,

Thanks for sharing your experience and we're sorry to hear that you considered returning it. The 500W heater is designed for localised warmth only e.g. a study or a bedroom just as your husband is using it :)

Should you need to heat a larger space we always advise using the wattage calculator (https://homesdelux.co.uk/pages/wattage-requirements-calculator). If this is something you would like to consider in the future, please get in touch and we can see if we can organise a discount.

Warm regards,
The Homes Delux Team

Great customer service and good personal portable top-up heater.

Overall, the customer service from Homesdelux/Keith was great and the product is as advertised.

The customer service from Keith was great, responsive and helpful 👍. I wasn't expecting the order to be followed up by a phone call a few days later, as I filter unknown numbers, Keith then followed up by email.

The Herschell 500W heater is largely well made and thought out product. It works as advertised, as a personal portable top-up heater.

It's a much more pleasant (and now preferred) type of heating feeling than conventionally available heaters, but its effective heating range seems to be within 1m of the panel, further out and I can barely feel any of the heat.

The feet are attached with screws that tighten against the back of the panel, but unfortunately this will of course damage the finish on the back of the panel. It's a minor issue but I'd rather not mark/damage the finish of a brand new item.

The controls are easy to work with and are intuitive. Before buying this, I had read a 2022 review saying Herschel was expecting to update the unit by adding the option to disable the sound and making it remember the last set temperature. It appears neither has happened. The heater will make a sound for every button press on the unit or in the third party Smartlife app. Again a minor issue but gets irritating.

I've tried the app for a short duration, but I'd personally not use the app as it adds nothing for me, as the heater is going to be right next to me. In the previous mentioned review, it was said they had added it to HomeAssistant which I've not yet attempted, but that's a bonus.

As for energy usage, it appears to flat out use around 500 watts no matter the temperature set, preferring to get to the set temperature as fast as possible, which it then seems to just shut off until the temperature drops and it starts up again. As of 06/11/2023 the average electricity price is 27p per KWh, so it costs roughly 13.5p per hour to run this heater.

It would be helpful & interesting to one day have a comparison of infrared heaters, their energy usage and effective heating range. Hopefully Herschel will improve on the minor issues in future releases.

Hi Brendon,
Thanks again for choosing us, and many thanks for the in depth review, nice pics!
I will pass this invaluable feedback on to Herschel.
All the best, from the team at Homes Delux.

Excellent portable infrared heater and customer service

There aren't many portable infrared heaters on the market at the moment. This one costs more than some, but is well designed, works great, is lightweight and likely will pay for itself over time as it uses a fraction of the electricity of other types of portable heaters. (It's important to remember that infrared heaters warm up people and objects, not whole rooms. Think heaters at outdoor pubs and restaurants these days.) I had little problem setting it up with the Smart Life app on the iPhone. Also, hats off to Keith at Homes Delux who is easy to reach and very helpful. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the kind words, KoS. Glad you are happy with the heater!

Herschel 500W heater

I have bought this heater in preparation for the winter. Having had solar panels installed, the plan is that this heater is sufficiently low power that during the daytime, I’ll be able to heat a room essentially for free. It’s too early to be able to tell yet. However, the heater itself is remarkably thin and unobtrusive. It provides noticeable warmth very quickly. The feet on this heater are far more part of the design, and less an ugly after thought than some other models I looked at.
Delivery was amazingly quick - placed the order, and my heater arrived next day.

Great little heater and top notch service

I bought this because I live in a one-bed flat heated by expensive electric space heaters. Like many people, I'm quite worried about the energy price cap, so I was looking for a more cost effective way to stay warm. After some reading I learned that infra-red panel heaters are the cheapest way to heat your home using electricity and this particular heater costs on average 7p per day to run.

So glad I made the investment! Although this model is meant only as a top up heater, it's brilliantly effective. It heats differently to the kind of heaters you may be used to – rather than heating the air in the room, it provides radiant heat, which means it warms objects it's pointed at. It feels like warm sunshine! It's sturdily made, but also lightweight and easy to move to where you need it. The Smart Life app to control it is great, too – although it needs wifi to connect, once it's set up you can control it from your phone where ever you are, which is great if you forget to turn it off before you go out or if you get stuck out in a cold snap and you're thinking of your poor pets at home.

I'd just like to say a few words about the service from Homes Delux too. I received the heater promptly after ordering, which was great. But they also kept me informed every step of the way, with confirmation of payment, dispatch and tracking. Cordial and customer focussed throughout, which is a personal touch generally lacking from most big online retailers these days.

I heartily recommend both product and supplier!

Thanks for your kind words Carrie and we are glad you are happy with the heater!
