Energy-saving has become a buzzword in the heating industry of late. Storage Heaters give you the best energy-saving features and amazing constant heating for your home and office. A storage heater uses the low tariffs of off-peak times to store the heating power till you need it during the peak times.
To store the energy needed for heating, these innovative heaters can store up to 23,1 kW of heating power for use when you need it most. By storing the electric energy during the off-peak times, you can heat your home or office evenly during the coldest days of winter. With energy savings as high as 47%, electric storage heaters will help you save money and heat your home comfortably.
With digital control, you control the way your home is heated and the temperature. The low running costs make storage heaters the best electric heater for your office or open-plan home. With innovative features like remote control and even networking, you can install a storage heater all over your home or retail space and control them from one remote.
The benefits of electric storage heaters don’t stop there. Designed with low profiles these slimline electric heaters will suit any design choice with elegant color finishes and clean, sleek outer covers. With the built-in fan, these heaters spread the heat evenly across the room rapidly for fast heat all day long.
Being one of the most technological electric heaters in our range, you can also install intelligent controllers that will learn from your heating demands to give you a better heating profile all winter long. Features like child lock and weekly programs give landlords and store owners the control they need for lower running costs.
Electric storage heaters give you the best of both worlds, effective heating for rooms and spaces with the benefit of energy-saving technology and networkability.
Storage heaters are some of the most cost-effective and low-energy heaters on the market today. They’re designed to intelligently store energy during off-peak times. This means that storage heaters will take advantage of the lower rates during off-peak times to store energy to be used for heating during the high-peak times when electricity rates skyrocket.
Some models here in QBIC can store up to 23.1 kilowatts of heating power which is more than sufficient to heat up your office and living spaces. They are beneficial for people who use their heaters 24/7 so that they can maximise their heaters’ performance at a lower cost compared to traditional electric heaters.
No, they’re highly efficient and have the ability to take advantage of when the tariffs are low to store up energy to be used for heating during high-tariff times during the day. This is the main reason why storage heaters are considered to be one of the least costly forms of heating devices you can use in your home.
On average, a 1,000-watt storage heater will run you around 7p per hour.
Dimplex’s Quantum Energy System is up to 47% more efficient compared to traditional electric radiators.
If you typically use your heater 24/7, then, yes, you should purchase a storage heater. You will benefit from your heating device storing energy during nighttime when tariffs are low and using the energy stored during the daytime. However, if you go to work during the day and nobody uses your heater at home, it doesn’t make much sense that you’ll purchase storage heaters since you’ll only be using them during the night when tariffs are also generally low.
No, storage heaters aren’t part of your typical central heating system. Central heating systems use boilers, heat pumps, furnaces, etc. to produce heat and then distribute this heat to several radiators through ductwork. Storage heaters, on the other hand, use electricity to operate and are designed to use electricity only during off-peak times to conserve energy.
However, in the case of Dimplex brand storage heaters, specifically their RF models, you can install a Dimplex Hub which can be used to control several units of Dimplex’s RF heating units. You can then download an app on your smartphone and use it to control the settings of your Dimplex devices including RF storage heaters. This is the closest storage heaters can get to being “centralised”
Yes, you can use storage heaters during the day. In fact, they’re designed to be used 24/7. However, the difference between storage heaters and traditional electric radiators is their operation methods and their energy consumption. To fully make use of the full potential of your storage heater, you want them on at night when they can store energy during low tariff hours and then use the stored energy during the day when electricity rates are high.
