Dimplex's DuoHeat radiators could lower energy bills

Dimplex DuoHeat Radiator

The DuoHeat radiators are revolutionary energy-efficient electric radiators. The slim, modern radiator ensures plenty of heat is available throughout the day whilst keeping costs down by using two automatically controlled heat sources. One source of heat comes from off-peak energy, which is retained at the heart of the heater and emitted throughout the day. The other source of heat, a low-wattage radiant element at the front of the radiator, is used only when necessary to retain your chosen room temperature.

Electric heating systems are 100 per cent efficient at the point of use, meaning all electricity consumed is converted directly into heat to warm your home. With electric heating no energy is wasted, unlike boiler-based systems where energy is lost whilst travelling through the flue. As the DuoHeat radiator has no moving parts it can be expected to last up to 15 years, five years longer than a boiler's average lifespan, making electric heating systems much better value for money when considering installation, maintenance and replacement costs over the life of your system.

A further benefit of electric heating is the fact that installation is so quick and simple. It also does not require any pipe-work, and therefore can be installed very quickly, with little disruption to the household. The DuoHeat radiators can work as a system or operate individually, allowing other radiators to be added when budget permits.

Karen Trewick, Marketing Communications Manager for Dimplex, says: "Dimplex offers a wide range of energy-efficient heating solutions as we understand how important conserving energy and saving money is throughout the winter. Many of our products also offer accurate and easy-to-use controls for maximum efficiency and comfort through the home."
