Additional Details:
Item comes with a good length of electrical cable attached, about 1.5m. The two hoses have compression fittings at both ends. The fan switch on the front has three positions: high speed, low speed and off. The fan activates automatically when the central heating sends hot water through the unit. There are two air inlet grilles, one on either side of the outlet grille on the front of the unit, so it can be mounted under a kitchen unit that is entirely boxed in (no need to cut any ventilation holes). You need to purchase two 15mm isolator valves to allow you to isolate the unit from the central heating in the event of a problem with the unit (between £1 and £3 each from various suppliers but also available here:Plumb-Pak Compression Isolator Valve 15mm Chrome - Pack of 2). There is no cold air setting on this unit, unlike the new Smiths units where the fan can be activated without the heating being on, hence the lower price.

The low setting is very quiet, and is all I need to heat my kitchen which is about 25 square meters. The high setting is noticeable but is not offensive. The brushed steel grille looks good. I had already prepared the area for installation (pipes and electricity) prior to delivery, so it took 30 minutes to fully install and check for leaks, including cutting the plinth.

Wasn't sure if this plinth heater would heat my kitchen as well as the small double radiator it replaced, needn't have worried, it's even better and heats up the room far quicker than the radiator did, a little noisy when it first comes on then very quickly quietens down and is almost unnoticable in operation, the higher speed is a bit more noisy but by no means annoyingly so, in fact if you are cooking in the kitchen with things like your oven working and pans boiling, you'd never know the heater was on. I find the first speed plenty enough to heat the room and don't think I will have to use the second speed at all, but it's there if needed as a boost to heat up the room a bit quicker. Simplicity itself to fit and looks great, comes with a white and brushed steel effect grill so you have a choice of what looks best with your kickboard, went for this model as I didn't need the cool air only facility available on other models by Smiths and you pay a lot more for the same heat output on the cool air only model. Not a lot else to be said except certainly worth the money. Great product at a great price, very highly recommended.....

I have recently had a new kitchen installed and as there was no room for the radiator I purchased this plinth heater. It is so much more effective and so discrete. The best gadget I have bought in ages!

Having a new kitchen fitted we wanted to remove the old radiator and decided to buy one of these.

One attraction to this particular one was the 2 year warranty.

Ours has been fitted under the 2 cupboards than form part of the breakfast bar. We chose to have the white grill front.

I must say that although we havent really used it yet as its June, the fitter did switch it on after fitting and the heat was as good as any big radiator. Im looking forward to seeing how it performs in the Winter though.

Our kitchen isnt as big as the heater says it covers so I am hoping it is more than adequate for the kitchen and the hall.

Looks great actually. I'd never heard of these until a kitchen designer meantioned them.

No instructions in the box though which should be included for fitting.

We have an open plan house and the kitchen/conservatory area was always cold. This heater has made such a difference. By mistake I switched it off when I was hoovering, the difference in temperature was considerable, we were really cold. We only use the first setting which is adequate, second setting a bit noisy anyway.

Purchased this for heating my new kitchen and have been very pleased with it so far. The unit was easy to connect up and wire in and it produces a good amount of heat for the size of the room. The fan on setting two is a bit noisy and obtrusive but the unit works so well that currently it is just left on setting one all the time. There is also a setting to turn off the fan completely which is handy for when you happen to be working right in front of it or when cooking and the room is already a bit warm.

I have not wired it into a room thermostat for operation and the unit simply switches on when it detects hot central heating water passing through it. I imagine with it wired to a room thermostat it would be even more effective. I much prefer this to a radiator and you save space allowing wall to wall units to be installed.

It takes up no visible space and the heating effect is tremendous and instant, much better than having an electric plinth heater.

Works really well in our new kitchen gives out good heat and is quite quiet on setting one, however only 4 stars as noisy when putting fan setting on number 2 (however as it is so efficient setting 2 rarely required).
