Three of the Best: Portable Heaters

With temperatures fluctuating outside, you might not want your central heating on, but still require a burst of heating for those odd cold spots in your home.

Dimplex portable heaters bring versatile, cost-effective and safe supplementary heating for your home. Whether you are looking for an ultra-compact MicroStove giving a boost in temperature whilst remaining aesthetically pleasing, or an EvoRad that can be simply wheeled into any room, electric portable heating remains one of the most cost-effective ways to provide additional heating.

What is more, portable heaters with Electronic Climate Control, or thermostatic control, ensure the room temperature does not fluctuate and are less likely to cause overheating, which wastes energy. And when you are done with them, they can be neatly stored away out of sight, ready for when next required.

All of Dimplex’s heaters come with overheat protection and a manufacturer’s guarantee for reassurance and peace of mind.
