Product Description

Product Description

With its unique oil free heating technology the Dimplex 2kW OFRC20Tic Oil Free column heater provides more heat faster than a standard oil filled column radiator of the same heat output. When using a portable heater you want to feel its warmth quickly and the oil free column heater from Dimplex does just that. The absence of oil means that the OFRC20Tic heats up very quickly indeed. In fact manufacturer laboratory tests show that this economical oil free column heater, provides approx 30% more effective room heat than an equivalent output oil filled column radiator, based on the average room temperature after one hour. What's more the test data also shows that OFRC20Tic uses less energy when heating a room from 15 to 25 degrees celsius. The unique patented fin design provides enhanced heat distrubition making the OFRC20Tic perfect for almost any room in the house, and because it has no oil there is no risk of leaking; it's light enough to move from room to room; plus it's easier to recycle/dispose of at the end of its useful life. With two heat settings, thermostat and 24 hour digital timer the OFRC20Tic offers complete user control, and the integral cable tidy makes this nifty heater easy to store away when not in use. The OFRC20Tic has been fully and independently safety tested to stringent BEAB Intertek standards and comes complete with a 3 year manufacturers warranty.

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.

Manufacturer's Description

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.

I bought 2 Dimplex OFRC20c (NB: the model WITHOUT timer) and 2 of the 1.5kW model Dimplex OFRC15c from Amazon in November 2010 in anticipation of another cold winter in the UK. And thank God I did. These heaters have worked so well through the December cold gust that both I and my wife quite literally feel that we have a new house. Gone are the days when we walked around fully dressed to keep warm during the cold months.

The smaller heaters have been warming our two smaller bedrooms (12-14 square metres, normal ceiling height) whereas one of the larger heaters has been in our living room (20 square metres, 3.5 metre ceiling) and the other one has been warming the large bedroom (18 square metres, normal ceiling). We have no additonal insulation in the house and the sash windows (some deity's curse on mankind...) are drafty.

During the period we've had the heaters, we've never had to operate any of them on the full power setting. We consistently use power setting I (of II) and the thermostats are typically set halfway between min and max. Each room has been comfortable enough for me to walk around in shorts and T-shirt despite sub zero temperatures outside.

With respect to power consumption I have not noticed any adverse change compared to previous years. That said, our previous heating arrangement for said rooms was an inverter airconditioning system so I'm probably comparing with the worst heating system ever from an energy standpoint.

Long story short, I am very happy with my purchase and would thoroughly recommend both the 20c and the 15c to anyone with a need for portable heating. With hindsight I could probably have bought only the 15c model for all four rooms. The 20c is a real powerhouse and unless it gets seriously cold, I doubt I will ever see myself coming close to using it's full capacity. It's nice to know that there is plenty of juice left, though...

I rent a large old victorian house with no central heating. This heater manages to warm a 12ft by 15ft room with high a ceiling and draughty sash windows with no problem.

During our second coldest winter for years we decided to invest in a portable heater for our conservatory and 'should God forbid the central heating break down' an auxillary form of heating.
Principly we were looking for an efficient, economical and portable heater and the Dimplex OFRC20Tic 2kw Oil Free Eco Column ticked all the boxes. We are delighted with its performance and lightness and modern appearence which blends in well with our home.

I chose this product after reading other customers' reviews - many thanks to everyone for helping me to make my choice.

This arrived on the scheduled day and it took just 5 minutes to get it out of its sensible packaging (strong but not difficult to open), attach the feet and switch on. Yes, it had that 'new product' aroma at first but that quickly disappeared. It took a few minutes to heat up fully from the middle outwards and it provides plenty of warmth on this chilly night. The instructions in the enclosed leaflet are clear but actually I didn't really need them to be able to work out how to set up the timing device etc. because it's highly intuitive. It's reassuring to know that further assistance is available from the Dimplex website if needed and the 3 year guarantee is good.

The cable is 51" long but the heat does fill my 16'x14' drafty living room very well wherever the heater is positioned without taking up too much space. It's not a thing of beauty but I'm yet to see an attractive heater of this type!

It's British and eco friendly too. I am really warm with a clear conscience! I'm already planning to order another one for upstairs to further save on escalating central heating oil costs. Well done and extra brownie points to Dimplex and Amazon for an excellent product and superb delivery time! Highly recommended.

Update - one year on: this has continued to be a fantastic buy! Even in December I'm not having to put my central heating on for more than a couple of hours a day (just to take the chill off the rest of the house and to help to dry washing) as it keeps my main living room very toasty indeed. It has more than paid for itself in the past year.

The Dimplex oil free column heater if simply fantastic. Because it is oil free there is no odour or noise of oil heating up/cooling down. Its heating capacity is far above what I had expected. Delivery was promised around 6 December and the item arrived on 3 December! Without doubt my best purchase this year!

fabulous radiator, has kept my bedroom very warm during this cold snap. If i was to gripe, i would say the cord was a bit short.

This was bought to heat my hallway as I have central heating in other rooms, but when I tried it out it was so efficient, and so easy to set the timer and have it come on by itself in the freezing cold mornings, that I now no longer even have my heating on in all the house (especially at night). I simply use this in my bedroom and it warms up so quickly, and does not use any extra power on my electricty bill!!! It switches on by timer in the mornings and i can turn it on/off myself inbetween that. Its nice and slim so stores easily,. and love that i can drag it on its wheels from room to room. I have never even used the higher settings on it , or even both of the heating switches, as its so good. It will heat a large place very quickly, and you find your self turning it either down or off. I am a total convert, love it to bits and its saved me so much money this winter that i will always have one now.Also it is not dangerous around kids like an oil heater may be as it does cool down to the touch easily and quickly like a radiator. Oil heaters take a long time to heat up and a long time to cool down, so this one is much faster and im not worried about leaving it on when im out or overnight. PERFECT 10 out of 10 x
