What is a Dimplex OFX Oil Filled Panel Radiator?

The Dimplex OFX Radiator is our best selling and most popular panel heater we have available.

 

This particular heater comes in three different outputs 750W, 1000W & 1500W. You also have the option of manual 24-hour timer, which can be set to switch the heater On/Off in any 15 minute periods.

 

Personally I prefer the timer option as you can set it to come on at specific times during the day, which helps getting out of bed on a wintery cold morning, especially living in the UK!

The best part is these heaters come with 3 years guarantee, so in the unlikely event something goes wrong you are covered.

 

Depending on which heater you require, the physical size will vary – please see below.

Not only are Dimplex Oil Filled Radiators suitable for domestic premises, they are also suitable for commercial too. They provide a balance of convected and radiant heat, just like a conventional radiator but with the added advantage on ‘plug-in’ portability.

These traditional ‘panel' style radiators will offer many years' service. With a totally enclosed heating element, the design is very safe, reliable and does not dry the air like some convection or radiant heaters.

 

70MM DEPTH!

 

What size heater do I need?

Assuming the room is well insulated with standard ceiling heights you can use the following examples:

750W: >8m2 = 4m x 2m

1000W: >11m2 = 4m x 2.8m

1500W: >17m2 = 5m x 3.4m

You can also work it out yourself!

 

All you need to do is the following calculation.

Width(m) x Depth(m) x 90 = REQUIRED OUTPUT

Example: 4m x 2m x 90 = 720 – Therefore you would go for the 750W heater. Remember it’s always better to choose the higher output to cover your requirements.

 

Now, let’s look at running costs…

 

Electric portable heating is the most cost effective solution for providing heat in your home or office. To work out an accurate running cost for your heater you can use the following calculator.

Calculating an accurate running cost varies from room to room because of many variables, number of doors, windows, aspect etc. However the following calculation can be used to provide a broad idea:

Energy input (kW) x pence per kWh= running cost.

For example a 1.5kW fan heater run continuously (without stopping) for 1 hour would be:

1.5kW x 14p/kWh = 21 pence per hour

The above calculation is based on 0.14p per kWh - please check with you current electricity bill for an actual hourly rate you are paying.
