Product Description

Product Description

With its unique oil free heating technology the Dimplex 2kW OFRC20c 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 OFRC20c 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 OFRC20c uses less energy when heating a room from 15 to 25 degrees celsius. The unique patented fin design provides enhanced heat distrubition making the OFRC20c 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 and thermostat the OFRC20c offers complete user control, and the integral cable tidy makes this nifty heater easy to store away when not in use. The OFRC20c 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 and choice of heat settings provide the user with greater control over energy consumption.

Bought this heater for my conservatory, as in the past it's proven to be unusable for 6-8 weeks during the Winter. It's allowed my family to use it as we would any other room in the house, even during the snow and freezing temperatures.

It warms the room very quickly (10 mins) on high, and then maintains a comfortable heat when turned down. Also, we've barely seen a difference in our electricity costs.

Can't recommend highly enough!

Hi, after doing quite a bit of research, I ordered two of these heaters, one for downstairs and the other for upstairs. Both heaters heat the rooms very quickly. They are oli free, so less chance of leaks. Another good feature is that if you are energy conscience, they can be run at 2 different settings, 1.4kw & 2kw. We run both of ours on the 1.4kw which is ample enough. Three year warranty with Dimplex. Hope this review helps :)

This works very well in a bedroom where it provides heat economically and compactly. You can move it around easily and it is not too bulky, for the price it is excellent value compared with others on the market.

Heats up much faster than our oil filled rads. Don't worry about the initial smell from new, it burns off after a couple of uses and then its fine.

I have recently bought the Dimplex OFRC20C 2kW version and it has just arrived today (with FREE delivery) given that I had ordered it on Thursday (5 days). It was very easy to assemble and plug straight in. I also purchased an energy monitor to measure how much electricity I am using so I can pay my fair share (which I imagine shouldn't be too much). On full power it is 2kW but this can be reduced after a few minutes to maintain the heat level.

The good points are that it gets to work straight away and I can feel the room getting much warmer, but if I am absolutely freezing I will stand next to it for a while and it feels great! I have a fairly Large room, and live 2 floors up in the attic room so it can get very cold in the Winter.

Slight downside is that it is smaller than the picture, and kind of yellow-grey colour, not bright white. And the cable is very short. Also unlike a more advanced model, this does not have a timer. But I purposely bought this one because a timer costs around £3 to buy separately.

And another annoying note, this product went down in price a few days after I bought it...I would say that for what it is, the product can be around the £40 mark..but I'm not too bothered because its great.

Finally It is a quite well designed heater that distributes heat evenly, the side panels conduct the heat well and in turn radiate well, but the top gives off the most heat. And the leaflet that it comes with gives an indication of the different power levels.

We have had this a week and have decided not to use it as it is too expensive to run. It is very efficient. It really pumps out the heat, however we followed the instructions and turned it up high for 10 mins then reduced it down to the lower setting and also turned the thermostat down to a lower level. Read the other negative reviews about electric consumption and believe them; this thing really eats through the electricity and for this reason we can't afford to run it, even on the lowest setting. We checked the consumption on our electric meter. After just one hour it had used 45 p of electricity. Over the course of a week this meant our electric consumption went up about £15. We instead plugged in our older oil filled radiator which instead has 3 heat settings, the lowest being 800W. We then checked the energy consumption on this and it was about 18p for the hour. So despite the fact the lowest setting on the oil filled radiator is just over half of the lowest setting on the new oil free heater the new heater managed to use nearly 3 times the electricity.

Well all I can say is that I am surprisingly happy with this item as
it's really warm and heats up within minutes on full settings.

Also I was shocked that this item had arrived yesterday
(I had ordered the day beforehand!) as the
Delivery estimate was for: Thursday, 20 November 2014 - Monday, 24 November 2014 .
Now if only every seller would be this quick at delivering things. :p

Anyway I can say that from what I've experienced so far, I'd HIGHLY
recommend this seller to everyone.

Also this heater is something that I'd recommend to everyone who
are looking for a really warm and efficient. plus eco friendly as well
as being really cheap to run heater!
