Keep your family safe with Dimplex's electrical heating checklist
When used correctly, electric heaters are one of the safest ways to warm a room, making them ideal choice for family homes. As winter has arrived, now is the ideal time to evaluate your electrical heating to make sure you remain cosy and safe this season.
When looking to buy a safe electrical heater, you should look for a UKCA marking. This marking is the new product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking, known as ‘new approach’ goods.
The majority of Dimplex’s portable electric heaters are BeAB (future UKCA marking) however some of our older stock may still have the CE marking. Our products offer a mix of safety features including a run back timer to ensure a heater switches off, rather than remaining on for extended periods of time, over-heat cut out functions and a built-in tilt switch which automatically turns the unit off when it’s knocked over—ideal for homes with small children or pets.
For families looking for ease of use, Dimplex’s FutuRad and Qube Fan heater features electronic climate control. These have eco heat mode, which enables the radiator to work out the most efficient way of reaching the desired temperature set point. This feature is designed to save time and money by avoiding continuous adjustment of the thermostat or power levels often associated on other radiators.
