Oil Free heaters are a new development in Portable heating. Some are styled like traditional oil filled column heaters whilst others are more modern in design. Like their oil filled counterparts outputs vary from 700w to 3kW. The main benefit with oil free radiators is that they warm up very fast, are lighter in weight (yet durable) and responsive to providing heat when you need it in comparison to oil filled products. In terms of energy saving features, look out for thermostats, heat settings and timers. More advanced features include electronic climate control, remote controls, and twin panel elements to increase control over the appliance.
The Dimplex OFRC20c is an oil free alternative to traditional oil filled portable heating appliances and makes up part of the Dimplex Oil Free Eco range of portable heaters.
This unique oil free - environmentally friendly heating technology not only makes the OFRC20c approximately 5kg lighter than an equivalent output oil filled column radiator, but also 30% more heat effective too. Easy glide castors offer easy manoeuvrability, and the thermostat, 24 hour programmable electronic timer and choice of heat settings provide the user with greater control over energy consumption.
