The future is electric
The UK heating market is changing faster than ever before.
Reason 1: Energy costs
The rising cost of energy is forcing homeowners, suppliers
and the government to find ways of reducing fuel consumption.
36% of the UK’s energy is used to heat the space and hot water
in our buildings. So it’s no surprise there is a concerted effort
to reduce our exposure to volatile price movements.
Reason 2: Legislation
The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions
by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. This means
that we need to secure lower carbon energy supplies today.
As electricity moves to low carbon sources of generation,
and with significant drops in emissions targets expected
by 2030, electricity will become a universal and versatile
source of low carbon energy.
“Technologies that use electricity to generate heat are well
placed to become major low carbon heating technologies
in the coming decades.”
DECC – Future of Heating, March 2011.
Specifically, electric heating:
• Is 100% efficient at the point of use – every unit of electricity
that you pay for becomes heat.
• Can be controlled with a degree of accuracy not achievable
with other systems.
• Can be quickly and easily installed as there is no pipework to
consider, making it ideal for both refurbishment and new build.
• Can operate as standalone heating or a complete system,
subject to requirement and budget – with the flexibility to add
to the system at any time – making it ideal for extensions.
• Has a low lifetime cost as it requires very little, if any,
maintenance and will last at least 50% longer than a gas
system on average.
• Is not limited by planning issues associated with flue
requirements in new build.
• Offers very low safety risk as it doesn’t burn fossil fuel.
Reason 3: Benefits
Electricity is the obvious choice for our future heating needs
due to its many benefits, both at national and local level:
• It can be produced in the UK, allowing continuity of supply
at a steady price.
• It is increasingly being produced from renewable sources,
neutralising its carbon intensity.
The future of domestic space heating is electric.

Heat explained
Before we explore our world of heating
solutions, let’s look at heat itself.
The human body is a walking heat
machine. But while it’s very good at
losing heat, it’s not quite so efficient
at retaining it.
We all react differently to weather and
temperature variations; very young, fragile
or older people are more susceptible than
most. Cold weather affects the death rate:
during the winter, there are typically
25,000 more deaths in the UK than at
other times in the year, directly attributed
to low temperatures. The most serious
risk, particularly for older people and
vulnerable groups, is hypothermia. Even
mildly cool indoor temperatures of 15.5°C
can trigger hypothermia in older people,
manifesting itself as confusion, slurred
speech and loss of complex motor skills.
If the body core temperature drops below
34°C, the effects may be life threatening.
Of course, many older people and/or
those in fuel poverty may be anxious
about using heating to keep warm during
the winter. For this reason, it’s important
to ensure entitlements such as winter
fuel payments are claimed, insulation
measures have been adopted, and that
the heating system is as controllable
and energy efficient as possible.
Different types of heat and how they affect us
Heat is transmitted in three ways: radiation, convection and conduction. The optimum mix for human comfort is a blend
of 80% convected and 20% radiant from a heating appliance.
Radiant heat
Gives a feeling of comfort. It’s like the
warmth from the sun or the warmth when
you hold your hands in front of a fire or
radiator in the winter. The air itself is not
heated directly and the rays of energy
travel in straight lines, only converting
to heat when the rays strike and are
absorbed by the body.
Convected heat
Is carried around the room in the form of
heated air. When air is heated, it expands,
becoming dense. The heavier, cooler air
around the heater – under the force of
gravity – displaces the warmer, lighter air
upwards. As the heated air rises, it diffuses
some of its heat, warming up air which is
at some distance from the heat source.
The hotter the initial heat source, the further
the convection current will flow before
diffusing into the air.
Conducted heat
Travels through solid objects. Heat a bar
of iron at one end and the other end will
become hot gradually. Even using the best
materials for conduction, this is a relatively
slow method of transmitting heat.
6 · Why the future is electric · Dimplex Heatbook
Which heater is best for me?
Different types of electric heating
There are two types of electric heater:
Direct-acting heaters
Designed to use standard rate electricity,
these provide fairly instant heat when
they are switched on. Panel heaters,
convector heaters, fan heaters, electric
radiators and radiant heaters fall into
this category, providing heat only for
the time they are energised.
Direct-acting heaters are 100% efficient
at point of use and are used mostly for
rooms which only require heating for
short periods, like bedrooms – although
in compact, well insulated modern
properties, they can be used as a
complete heating system.
On a given tariff, 1kWh of energy used
will cost the same, whether it’s a fan
heater, panel heater, oil-filled radiator
or even a hairdryer using it.* The key to
improving efficiency is to use products
that have thermostatic control to ensure
that the room is not overheated,
thereby saving energy.
Off-peak Quantum heaters and
storage heaters
These absorb energy in the form of
heat from electricity when it is supplied
at a lower price (usually at night) and
store this for slow release over an
extended period.
If the Quantum or storage heater takes
a full charge and has a rating of 18kWh,
and is charged for seven hours, then it
will cost 18 x 7 x cost of a unit of off-peak
electricity, per day.*
Since Quantum and storage heaters use
energy supplied by low-cost, off-peak
electricity for a given property, they will
always be cheaper to run over a 16-hour
day than direct-acting heaters, such as
electric radiators or convectors, which
use standard rate electricity.
We take a closer look at each type of
heater in our ‘Introduction to direct-acting
heaters’ and ‘Introduction to off-peak
heaters’ overleaf.
*The actual annual running costs for
an individual room/property will vary
according to many factors such as
lifestyle, insulation levels, weather
conditions, correct sizing of heater,
appliance selected and room temperature
required. The information given here
should be taken as a rough guide only.
1kWh = a 1kW appliance running for
one hour, so the input of the appliance
x length of running time (e.g. 1 hour) x
kWh cost = hourly running cost.
If you are looking to heat a room on
a permanent basis, it would be best
to use an installed heater such as a
Quantum (if you have access to an
off-peak circuit), or an electric radiator
or panel heater.
Portable electric heaters are
especially useful for when you wish
to heat a single room when you’re
involved in a sedentary activity, such
as working from home, or you need
additional spot heating.
• Oil-filled radiators: Providing a mix
of radiant and convected heat –
and virtually silent in operation –
these are ideal for older people,
keeping baby rooms warm and
for people working in a small
home office.
• Oil-free radiators: These are
similar to oil-filled products,
but have faster warm-up times,
a lighter weight design and they
are easier to recycle.
• Convectors: These are slimline,
lightweight, easy to move from
room to room and just as easy
to store away when they are
not in use.
• Fan heaters: Great for an instant
warm up, fan heaters make a room
feel warm very quickly, and are
easy to move and store.

A GUIDE TO HEATING
Introduction to direct-acting heating
One type of direct-acting heating is the panel convector
heater or electric radiator. Slimline and wall mounted, these
heaters provide rapid heat whenever the user needs it.
To maximise their operational ability, these heaters have:
• Low thermal inertia, meaning they heat up rapidly in
response to immediate heating needs.
• An electronic or gas-filled thermostat, so they avoid
room temperature ‘drift’.
• A range of controls, allowing the user to match their
heating requirements with their occupancy patterns.
Our range of heaters achieves this by using
convection heat, or a combination of radiation
and convection, to heat up a space quickly.
(See ‘Heat explained’ on page 6 for an
explanation of the different types of heat.)
This means that the room is warm for the
period of time selected and can be held
accurately at the temperature required for
the duration of occupancy, creating a
comfortable environment. And, when the
heater is switched off, it reacts just as quickly.
Is one type of direct-acting heater more
efficient than another?
There have been many spurious claims of
‘higher efficiency’ in the electric heating market.
The fact is all direct-acting heaters are
100% efficient at point of use. If your heater
uses 1kWh of electricity, 1kW of heat will be
transferred into the room for one hour. As The
Law of Conservation of Energy dictates:
(see our oil-filled range on page 62).
However, the very small thermal storage
capacity of a fluid-filled radiator also results in
slow release heat to the room during start-up
(Graph 1) and a slightly prolonged release of
heat to the room after switching off.
‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but
can only change from one form to another’.
By comparison, a radiator panel convector or
Q-Rad electric radiator heater (see page 16)
with no fluid would release heat to the room
more quickly during start-up (Graph 2) and
stop releasing heat more quickly at ‘switch off’.
With that said, all direct-acting heaters do not
operate in the same way. Take a fluid (oil or
thermodynamic) filled radiator, for example:
the fluid in the radiator will transfer the heat
uniformly around the radiator, giving a higher
proportion of radiant – as opposed to
convected heat – compared to a convector
heater. This is useful for certain applications

Introduction to off-peak heaters
Off-peak heaters, such as Quantum
and storage heaters, are electric heaters
designed specifically to operate using
cheaper, off-peak electricity and, as the
name implies, to store heat. There are
four types of heater, each offering different
levels of comfort control:
1) Smart fan-assisted models (Quantum)
2) Combination models
3) Automatic models
4) Manual control models
To see a video explaining how
off-peak heating works, please visit:
www.dimplex.co.uk/how
How does an off-peak heater work?
Off-peak electricity is supplied from the
national grid to your house, usually overnight
when demand for electricity nationally is low.
This is called the ‘off-peak’ period (Fig. A).
Because it’s off peak, it’s supplied at a
cheaper price than standard rate electricity,
so it needs a separate off-peak electrical
circuit and meter. This circuit is dedicated to
operating the off-peak heaters and is only
switched on during the off-peak time period
(Fig. B). This will take place at certain times
of the day or night, and will be dictated by
your electricity supplier.
In the same way that your kettle uses an
element to heat water, electricity is used to
heat elements in your heater. Over a number
of hours, the elements gradually transfer
the heat to a very high-density material that
absorbs and stores the heat for use the next
day. The off-peak heaters use state-of-theart insulation material to retain as much of
this heat for as long as possible (Fig. C).
Additionally, smart fan-assisted models
(Quantum):
When the off-peak period finishes, for the
majority of off-peak heaters, the heat is
gradually released into the room in a
controlled way over the course of the day.
In the case of smart fan-assisted models
(Quantum) almost all of the heat is retained
until it is required.
• Are fitted with the revolutionary iQ
Controller which enables heating
requirements to be preset.
What are the benefits of off-peak heating?
• Offer highly accurate room
temperature control.
All storage heater models:
• Allow for quick and easy installation
(no pipes, boiler or flue).
• Offer 24 hours of warmth for the cost
of 7-10 hours of cheap-rate electricity.
• Are 100% efficient.
• Require no annual maintenance.
• Are clean.
• Are safe.
• Are easily upgradable on a
heater-by-heater basis.
• Offer unsurpassed insulation levels,
ensuring heat is retained for significantly
longer than conventional static
storage heaters.
• Have an ultra-quiet soft-start fan to
unobtrusively and efficiently heat the room.
• Have an easy-to-use electronic
user interface.
• Feature a ‘Boost’ element, ensuring
that heat is always available, even with
unexpected demand.
Please view the products individually
for their specific features and benefits.

QUANTUM HEATING SYSTEM
heating system
The Quantum heating system provides
low-cost, low-carbon, electric heating
on demand. In fact, the system offers
unrivalled running costs, will actually
use decreasing amounts of carbon over
its lifetime, and has a 10 year warranty.†
Cost savings
With Quantum, up to 90% of your
heating is provided using low-cost,
off-peak energy. Quantum also uses
insulation material with almost the
lowest theoretically possible thermal
conductivity – even lower than that
of still air. This means heat barely
passes through the material,
minimising heat loss.
Quantum is recognised using SAP
2012 (the government-recommended
system for measuring a home’s energy
performance) as being up to 27% cheaper
to run and using up to 22% less energy
than a standard storage heater system.*
This means that if a Quantum system
replaces a manual static storage system,
certain properties could expect annual
running cost savings of up to £418 every
year.* With these savings, the extra
upfront cost could be repaid in just
over two years.^
Heat on demand
Peace of mind
Its exceptional levels of insulation
mean Quantum can store energy
during periods of low demand, turning
it into efficient heat only when needed.
The Quantum iQ controller‡ uses a
sophisticated self-learning algorithm
to take just the right amount of heat
to match your lifestyle and climate
conditions, intuitively and precisely.
So you can relax knowing there is
sufficient heat available.
A soft-start fan ensures the heat is
released into the room unobtrusively,
quickly and efficiently. In fact,
Quantum can heat a room faster
than just about any other central
heating system. Furthermore, because
the heat outlet is positioned at the
base of the heater, the room is heated
from floor level, ensuring maximum
comfort and efficiency.
Quantum delivers high reliability, plus
it’s virtually maintenance free. And for
added confidence, every Quantum
comes with our 10-year warranty†.
Furthermore, Quantum is BEAB
Approved. Recognised across the
UK and Europe, the BEAB Approved
Mark from Intertek demonstrates
the safety pedigree of a product:
our commitment to best practice,
to producing quality goods and to
customer safety. It’s the highest
safety standard achievable in the UK.
†
10-year warranty is a standard 2 years, plus additional
eight years on registration. ‡Patent applied for.
†
Quantum is also up to 47% cheaper
to run than an electric convector or
radiator system.* Depending on the
property type, annual running cost
savings could be up to £975 when
replacing an electric convector or
radiator system on standard tariff with
a Quantum system on Economy 7.*
See page 14 for a closer look at running
costs figures.
What’s more, Quantum is the only
product available in the UK† which meets
the SAP 2012’s specification criteria for
classification as a ‘high heat retention
storage heater’. As a result, Quantum
has been accepted as a ‘Green Deal
Measure’ by the Department of Energy
& Climate Change. The ‘golden rule’ of
the Green Deal states that the expected
energy savings must be greater than
the costs of the improvements.
For more information on the Green Deal,

day so it gets really warm and I don’t need any heating.
As a result I just put the heater on its ‘out all day’ setting
and then when I need heat in the evening, it’s there and
that’s lovely. You just press a button and the job is done,
very simple to use.

A unique concept in electric heating
Highly controllable
The Quantum iQ controller‡ monitors the weather and responds to changing
climate conditions automatically. It follows target room temperature closely,
adjusting settings to maintain the required temperature to within +/-0.3°C.
The iQ controller‡ is always monitoring and learning your heating habits.
It anticipates your needs, adapting and delivering just the right amount of heat for
complete comfort. Whether you are at home all day, or only morning and evening,
Quantum matches the heating requirements of your lifestyle (see graph below).
Of course, if you want to adjust the heat levels manually, you can. The easy-to-use
electronic interface with clear LCD display puts you in control. There’s a seven-day
programmer with three adjustable pre-set timer profiles, a ‘Holiday’ mode, landlord
setting, child lock and more. So sit back and let Quantum take control. We take a
closer look at ‘Using Quantum’ overleaf.

QUANTUM HEATING SYSTEM
A closer look at running costs
The running costs of electric heating
systems in this case study are
calculated using energy consumptions
derived from SAP2012 energy use
estimation methods. This energy use
is combined with a standard electric
heating tariff for electric radiators
and an Economy 7 tariff for storage
heaters and Quantum. The kWh unit
rates are as stated in SAP2012 Table
12 (BRE – published on behalf of
DECC) ‘SAP2012 – the Government’s
Standard Assessment Procedure for
Energy Rating of Dwellings’, 2012
edition, February 2014.
With these assumptions SAP2012
has been used to calculate the space
heating running costs for 3 property
types with two different levels of
insulation. The first level of insulation
is based on 1960s building regulations
and air tightness, whilst the second
level of insulation is based on 1990s
standards. The annual space heating
energy requirements are based on
average regional weather conditions
for Northern Ireland.
The results show that certain
properties with a Quantum
heating system using an E7 tariff
can reduce, on average, running
costs by between 44-47% when
compared with direct acting
systems such as electric radiators
using a standard tariff. Quantum
can also achieve savings of up
to 27% if used in a property to
displace conventional manual
storage heaters on an E7 tariff.
Quantum offers significant running cost savings
compared to other electric heating systems.

Q-RAD ELECTRIC RADIATOR
Model QRAD150
Dubbed ‘the electric radiator with a
brain’, Q-Rad monitors the effect of
its actions on a room’s temperature.
It knows precisely how long it takes
to reach the desired temperature
and when to turn off as it approaches
that target. This minimises the
energy that it uses, while maximising
comfort – so you stay warm for the
lowest possible cost.
• Is our most intelligent electric radiator.
Thanks to its low thermal mass, Q-Rad
is able to heat up more quickly and
react more responsively to changes
in room temperature than a fluid-filled
electric radiator. This means improved
control, comfort and energy saving.
• Reduces output automatically if a window is left open to prevent heat loss,
thereby saving money.
Taking design cues from our categoryleading Quantum heater, Q-Rad is
sleek, slim and stylish. Combining
good looks with flexible installation
options, Q-Rad is ideal for use in
many applications, including in place
of conventional convector heaters or
electric radiators.

‘Eco Start’ delayed start anticipatory control
Q-Rad boasts a range of unique,
intelligent features which work
automatically and help to keep
you warm for less.
Eco Start is Q-Rad’s unique, self-learning delayed start function. This learns the
thermal characteristics of a room then determines how long the appliance needs
to operate to reach target temperature according to room size, heat losses,
prevailing weather conditions and so on.
By measuring the heat-up and cool-down times of the room, and how they vary
with external temperature, the heater works out what time it needs to start heating
to reach the user-defined target temperature at a specified time. This minimises
wasted energy and can deliver cost savings for users.
For example, say you plan to get up at 7am and your desired temperature is 21°C:
with a traditional system, you would need to estimate when to set the heating to
come on to ensure it preheats the room in time. Depending on your settings and
the prevailing temperature, this could mean that the room is still cold when you
get out of bed or that it has been warm for some time before it needed to be.
However, as the graph below illustrates, this clever feature means that Q-Rad
anticipates when it needs to start heating to reach 21°C by 7am, preheating for
shorter periods when the weather is mild and longer periods when the weather
is cooler.

...but if the room

To maintain the target room temperature
the appliance cycles the heating
elements on/off as required. The radiant
element does not turn off until the room
reaches target temperature, unless there
is rapid heat loss in the room, (see open
window technology) thereby ensuring
a continuous radiant heat output.
As the room approaches
the set point the appliance
begins to cycle the
convective element.

Q-RAD ELECTRIC RADIATOR
Energy-saving features
Dual-element technology
Q-Rad has a convective element with a variable power output, as well as a radiant
element. It uses one or both of these heat sources automatically to maintain an
accurate target room temperature.
Q-Rad calculates the time needed to heat a room and the convective element
begins by operating at full power. As the room approaches the target temperature,
Q-Rad begins to cycle the convective element between full and reduced power
output until the target temperature is reached.
At this point, Q-Rad switches off the convector, thereby avoiding overshooting
and saving you energy. To maintain the target temperature, Q-Rad then cycles
the convective and radiant elements on and off, as required.
Open window detection
Should a window or door be left open accidentally, Q-Rad will detect a sudden
change in temperature and scale back its output to 50%. Once the window or door
has been closed, Q-Rad will resume normal operation. This technology ensures
that the output from the heater is reduced when heat is escaping from a room,
avoiding wastage and saving you money.

The buttons make an audible ‘beep’
when touched; the pitch of the
sound rises and falls in line with the
temperature selected. The temperature
display is also colour-coded to assist
the visually impaired. (Note: audio
feedback may be disabled where
not required.)
Q-Rad comes with a child lock to
prevent little hands from tinkering with
your settings. To activate the lock,
simply press and hold the Back and
Enter buttons on the Heater Control for
three seconds. The words ‘Child Lock’
at the bottom of the screen tell you that
this function is active.

Q-Rad has been designed
specifically to heat a room in the
shortest amount of time possible.
Thermal imagery
Image A – Typical convector
Image B – Q-Rad airflow
Image A shows the hot airflow
(heatstream) from the top of a
typical wall-mounted electric
convector heater in profile view.
The heatstream is slow moving,
turbulent and being directed straight
up. It creates a slight vacuum
between the heater and the wall,
pulling the hot air towards the wall.
This increases the likelihood of heat
transfer through the wall, reducing
the potential benefit from that heat
output – not to mention the risk of
wall staining.
Image B shows the heatstream
from the top of a wall-mounted
Q-Rad electric heater. Here, the
heatstream is faster moving, less
turbulent and being directed away
from the wall. The length and
inclination of the louvres in the
Q-Rad air outlet grille have been
optimised to direct the heat into
the room. This clever design
feature minimises heat transfer
and wall staining, and helps to
heat the room in the shortest

Elements
Two mineral filled sheathed electric
elements are embedded in aluminium
heating plates. Low element operating
temperature of around 200ºC reduces
air drying effects and dust burning.
The heating plates have a unique
design – the forward face has greater
surface area to maximise radiant heat.
The reverse side is in its natural
smooth aluminium state to minimise
heat loss to the wall.
The design provides an even
temperature across the front panel,
using the whole surface area available
and maximises the throw of radiant
heat into the room.
Construction
Durable polyester powder coated
steel with mesh steel front grille.

Dimplex products comply with EN60335,
the European Standard covering safety
requirements of electric heating appliances,
and momentary contact with any part of the
heater should not cause injury. However, in
order to be effective, heaters of any type do
get hot especially around the air outlet grille.
Therefore, if aged or infirm persons,
or young children, are likely to be left
unsupervised in the vicinity of a heater,
we advise that precautions should be
taken to ensure that contact cannot occur.
We recommend that a guard is fitted around
the heater as is normal with some types of
heating appliances in similar circumstances.

Installation to radiator circuit
Installation must be in accordance
with manufacturer’s instructions.
Liquid is drained by removing bungs
to inlet/outlet connections (½ inch
BSP fittings). Connect to radiator circuit
(electric element remains in situ).
Radiator refilled from radiator
circuit and bled using valve
concealed below top-right
header cap. Electrical connection
as electric-only installation.
Operation when part of radiator circuit
When the central heating system
is in use the appliance will act as
a normal radiator. Out of season
or when the boiler is not in use,
the radiator may be operated
independently by switching on the
electric element. In use, expansion
of water must be guaranteed through
return connection. Return connection
should be left open to ensure this.
*For BTU output multiply by 3.412.

for annual servicing. Dimplex electric fires also come complete with a fitted plug,
and many don’t require a fireplace – you simply plug-in and go.*

Model AC3N
Bringing modern styling to the ever popular Dimplex AC range, these over
door heaters provide powerful and effective heating above entrances to
shops, offices and almost any small doorway.
Because they warm the door entrance area, they often allow doors to
remain open for longer, promoting increased business, and can equally
be used as high-level fan heaters where the need arises.
For extra convenience, the AC3RN model gives remote control operation
and a recessed model AC3CN is available for installation in suspended or
plaster ceilings where ‘hidden’ installation is required.

Instant heat – where it’s needed
• By producing a highly directional beam of heat (just like the Sun),
these heaters only use the minimum energy needed to heat the chosen
area without waste.
• The short wavelength at which the heater emits energy ensures maximum
effect is felt instantly, making them perfect for infrequently used areas or
where pre-heating a whole building is impractical.
• Additional auto controls make these heaters economical for ‘zone’
heating within factories and warehouses, and for ‘on demand’ heating in
community halls and public buildings where usage may be unpredictable.
• Radiant heat effect allows high heat-loss buildings to be heated.

•Integral fan allows the LST heater to
heat the room up more quickly and
react more responsively to changes
in room temperature than non fan
assisted heaters. This means
improved control, comfort and
energy saving. Utilising fan
technology also means that it is
possible to achieve a higher heat
ouput than comparably sized
non-fan-assisted convector heaters,
yet still comply with surface
temperature restrictions.
• Highly accurate electronic
thermostat (to +/-0.2°C) with
frost protection settings.
• Advanced touch control system
offering temperature selection,
preset programmes for maximum
control with complete flexibility,
and visual/audible feedback.
See page 19 for more details
of this functionality.
• 24-hour and 7-day timer control
ensures suitability for domestic
and commercial applications.
• Maximum surface temperature
remains under 43°C to comply with
NHS estate health guidance notes.
• Open Window Technology
automatically reduces output to
prevent heat loss if a window is
left open, thereby saving money.
See page 18 for more details of
this functionality.
• Stylish, compact and
slimline design.
• Splash proof to IP24 for use
in bathrooms.
• Child lock – locks controls so
that they can’t be tampered with.
See page 19 for more details of
this functionality.
• Safety cutouts.
• BEAB approved.
•‘Eco-Start’ delayed start

The perfect heating solution for hospitals, schools, kindergartens,
nurseries, retirement homes, sheltered housing, nursing homes and
sports halls. The Dimplex LST range has been specifically designed to
meet the heating requirements of particular environments where vulnerable
members of the community such as infants, the young, or elderly are liable
to be present. Each fan-assisted heater has been optimised to give the
maximum output to efficiently and rapidly heat the room, from the most
compact and slimline style available, ensuring that no part of the heater
exceeds 43°C surface temperature.
Eco-Start
The LST monitors the effect of its actions on a room’s temperature. It knows
precisely how long it takes to get to the desired temperature and when to turn
off as it approaches that target temperature. This minimises the energy that
it uses, while maximising comfort – keeping occupants warm for the lowest
possible cost. See page 17 for more details.

RENEWABLES OVERVIEW
Low-carbon solutions overview
The course is set for a route towards
low-energy buildings in the UK via
progressively tightening building
standards and targets for all new
housing to be zero carbon by 2016
and commercial buildings by 2020.
Government policy, legislation
and incentives are also clearly
emphasising the need for
improvements in the energy
efficiency and sustainability of
the UK’s existing housing stock.
Meeting these challenging
standards will inevitably require the
use of renewable technology and
increasingly, particularly in the new
build sector, require combinations of
technologies to be applied to achieve
the required carbon saving standards.
Renewable technologies, strategically
based around low-carbon electricity,
will come to the fore, with longer
term UK energy policy based on
a decarbonised electricity grid.
This is in place of unsustainable
and insecure fossil fuels, creating
a greater dependency on electricity
as the primary energy source.
Whether domestic or commercial,
our range of renewable heating
solutions, designed specifically
to complement each other,
perfectly matches the future needs
of low/zero carbon buildings.
1
Ground source heat pump
Dimplex has over 30 years’
experience in heat pump
manufacturing and has developed
a ground source range that
covers small domestic systems
from 4kW to commercial systems
up to 130kW, able to be installed
in multiples to meet the heating
needs of buildings of all kinds.
3
Solar thermal hot
water heating
An ideal complement to a heat pump,
a Dimplex solar thermal system can
provide up to 60% of a property’s
hot water demand, helping to reduce
energy costs and combat fuel poverty.
Supplied as an easy-to-specify
complete package, including carefully
matched unvented hot water
cylinders (4), and flat plate
collectors with a range of roof
mounting options, the system
is easy to fit either as part of the
build or a refurbishment programme.
5
2
Air source heat pump
Air source heat pumps are
increasing in popularity in the UK.
With our vast experience in
manufacturing highly efficient units
for cold central European climates,
the Dimplex range spans solutions
from compact domestic units
through to high-efficiency units
with outputs of up to 60kW,
suitable for commercial premises.
4
Energy-efficient unvented
hot water storage
Dimplex has produced a range
of unvented hot water cylinders to
accommodate renewable energy
systems, with models designed
specifically to operate with either
solar thermal systems or heat
pumps or both.
Energy-efficient
space heating
Dimplex SmartRad sets new
standards for the way we think
about space heating. Fast and
responsive with accurate roomby-room control, SmartRad is

Heat pumps
Our environment is full of energy,
even at sub-zero temperatures.
Heat pumps use conventional
refrigeration technology to extract this
energy and raise it to a temperature
suitable for heating purposes.
For Dimplex, there’s nothing new about
renewables. From our manufacturing
plants in Northern Ireland and
Germany, Dimplex produces the widest
range of heat pumps available on the
UK market and leads the way in the
development of energy efficient heat
pump technologies.
Depending on the product and project,
the heat pump may be eligible for
funding under the Renewable Heat
Incentive (RHI) scheme. Please visit:
www.decc.gov.uk for more information.
One system for all types
of heat sources
Dimplex heat pumps offer you two
different future-proof heat sources,
outside air or ground.
Air source heat pumps utilise
the outside air as their energy
source. Heat pumps can
even extract heating energy
from the outside air at
temperatures as low as -25˚C.
Ground source heat pumps
extract heat from the earth
all year round via ground
heat collectors buried
beneath the ground.

Dimplex heaters are ideal for use
in many commercial and industrial
applications as outlined here.
This table should be taken as a
guide only. Individual requirements
will depend on a number of factors
including size of building, insulation
levels, and recommended
heating level.
Don’t forget heat pumps are also
ideal for a wide range of commercial
installations, from offices through
to schools.
*May require the use of additional product guards. **A small selection of possible applications.

Heater sizing table
Dimplex provides a number of
options to meet different property
and timescale requirements.
If you need to obtain an indication
of the heating requirements for
estimating or if you need heating
for one or two rooms, please
use this selection guide.
Alternatively, use our online calculator
at: www.dimplex.co.uk/heatdesign.
For single properties, please
complete the form on page 102
and send it with a sketch plan to
our heating design department.
We aim to provide an accurate
assessment within seven working
days. For multiple properties,
please send us comprehensive
scale drawings (scale 1:50 or 1:100)
together with construction details
and any other relevant information.
We offer a 14-working-day service
for this type of assessment.
See page 102 for contact details.
How to use this selection guide
The tables below provide heater-sizing
guidance for traditional electric
heating systems, including Quantum,
storage heaters and panel heaters.
For traditional electric heating the
preferred options for living and dining
rooms are Quantum or CXLSN
combination storage heaters.
Knowing the floor area, the wall
construction and the number of outside
walls will determine the heater loading
in kilowatts, which is indicated in the
appropriate table. These tables do
not take into account particularly old
properties or those built very recently.
If your property fits into one of these
classifications, please complete the
form on page 102 so that we can
provide a more accurate assessment.
For sizing guidance for DuoHeat
radiators please refer to page 101.

Heater sizing table
DuoHeat ® radiator sizing – replacement systems
How to use this selection guide.
For sizing of DuoHeat® radiators to
replace existing storage heater systems,
replace the existing heater with a
similarly sized DuoHeat ® radiator, as
indicated below. Due to the consistency
of heat output from DuoHeat ® radiators,
this will provide a significant improvement
in room comfort levels throughout the
course of the day.
The tables on this page are for
use with DuoHeat ® radiators only –
for other products please refer to
our selection charts on page 100.
Unlike the charts on page 100,
these tables cover all applications –
living room, dining room, kitchen
and hallway – and are designed
to provide for an internal
temperature of 21°C.

be taken into consideration (i.e. if it is
used often, the heater may already
be undersized). Therefore it is
recommended that combination storage
heaters are replaced with a larger size
of DuoHeat ® radiator, to ensure there is
sufficient capacity within the system to
match the capability of the convector
heater being replaced. In the case of
a 24kW combination storage heater,
it is recommended that an additional
appliance – either a second DuoHeat ®
radiator, Dimplex panel heater or flame
effect fire is added:

DuoHeat ® radiators are designed
to provide primary heating in main
living areas, including living rooms,
dining rooms, kitchen/diners and
hallways/landings. This should
be supplemented in other rooms,
such as bedrooms and bathrooms,
with Dimplex electronic panel heaters.
DuoHeat ® radiator sizing – first time installations
The following chart provides guidance
on radiator sizing for first-time installations
in key living areas for existing buildings.
Simply select the floor area of your room
from the left-hand column, and choose
the correct number of outside walls
from either the cavity or insulated cavity
wall columns. These tables do not
take into account particularly old
properties or those built very recently.
If your property fits into one of these
classifications, please complete
the form on page 103 so that we can
provide a more accurate assessment.

Dimplex Heatbook
Bathrooms
Plugs
Any electrical appliances installed in a bathroom should be fitted by a
competent electrician in accordance with the current I.E.E. Regulations.
All portable appliances are supplied with a fitted plug.
Portable heaters are NOT suitable for use in a bathroom.
This brochure is not intended as an installation guide. For safety, products
should only be installed by a competent person, in accordance with current
regulations and the manufacturers instructions. If you require further advice
concerning the installation of our products – especially where the installed
dimensions may be critical to your choice and the location of the product –
please consult your installer. Please note that
the dimensions contained within this brochure do not in all cases include
clearances required around installed products for safe operation.
Unless otherwise specified in this brochure, heaters that can be permanently fixed have to be so mounted that any controls cannot be reached by a
person using a bath or shower. This restriction does not apply to Dimplex
heated towel rails, which do not have controls.
Safety
Dimplex products are designed to comply with EN60335 the British
Standard covering the safety requirements of electric heating appliances,
and momentary contact with any part of the heater should not cause injury.
However, in order to be effective, heaters or towel rails of any
type do get hot especially (if applicable) around the air outlet grille.
Therefore if aged or infirm persons, or young children, are likely to be
left unsupervised in the vicinity of a heater we advise that precautions
should be taken. We recommend that a guard is fitted around the
heater, as is normal with many types of heating appliance in similar
circumstances, to ensure contact with the heater is avoided and objects
cannot be inserted into the product. (Please see page 43 for details of
accessory guards.) Heating appliances should never be covered or
positioned where objects may fall onto them.
Specifications
Dimplex policy is one of continuous improvement; we reserve the right
to alter specifications without notice. Although every care has been
taken in the reproduction of product finishes in this brochure, the colour
photographs should be taken only as a guide. The information contained in
this brochure is correct at the time of printing. You are advised to consult
your dealer before purchasing.
