Quantum heating

Quantum is the world’s most advanced off-peak heater – designed, developed and manufactured in the UK by Dimplex - using low-cost, off-peak energy, makes it the most economical electric heating system on the market today and the perfect replacement for old, outdated storage heaters.

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.

Cost saving

With Quantum, up to 90% of 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.* Based on a one bedroom flat and with these savings, the extra upfront cost could be repaid in just over two years.

* Calculated using SAP 2012.

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 is an award-winning off-peak heater that totally transforms heating…

Safe heating

Quantum is the product of nearly 70 years of heating experience, from Dimplex’s own in-house research, development, design and manufacturing facilities in the UK and is BEAB Approved – the highest safety standard achievable in the UK. For additional peace of mind, we provide a 10-year warranty as standard. Terms and conditions apply and the product must have been installed in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

Intelligent heating

The intelligent built-in IQ controller intuitively and precisely responds to changing weather conditions and heating requirements to maintain the ideal room temperature. 

You can also pre-set your heating requirements – just like central heating – or, if required, make manual adjustments with Quantum’s easy-to-read LCD display and user-friendly low torque rotary control for instant heat when you need it – day or night. There’s a seven-day programmer with three adjustable preset timer profiles, a ‘Holiday’ mode, landlord setting, child lock and more.

Whilst it’s technologically advanced, the Quantum Heating System is incredibly easy to use.
