Stay warm whilst you study

It's that time of year again, with young people everywhere moving to university and away from their warm, cosy home environment. For those cold winter nights in student accommodation where the thought of paying to heat a whole home fills you with dread, portable heating can be ideal as it heats just the room you are in. Dimplex offers a range of options that provide an easy way to supplement the heating in even the coldest of student accommodation. As well as this, most Dimplex portable products come with a 3-5 year warranty, meaning your products will be covered throughout your student life.
