The Dimplex Brand is recognised as a Leading Brand, and is of excellent quality. Super easy to install.

Fantastic review, thank you for taking the time to write such great comments.

Ordered Online Day One and my Heaters were delivered the following day with FREE Delivery. The packing materials were of exceptional quality and therefore there was no chance of damage to my Heaters in transit. The Heater Shops prices were the best I could find Online and therefore exceptional value for money

Thank you very much for your absolutely fantastic review.
You have picked up on everything that we constantly do to improve the quality of our service which is of great importance to us as we want to ensure that our customers are always a priority.

Excellent replacement, and easy to fit.

Exactly what was wanted for my son's flat as the other did not work. Speedy delivery too, and brilliant to have a slot in time of delivery, as all day deliveries can be very hit and miss, plus someone has to stay at home all day to take delivery, which is not always that convenient.

Thank you very much for your great review of our service. 
I'm really pleased that the delivery service was efficient and convenient for you too.

Good heater which meets my needs. Would have been easier to fix to the wall had a simple paper template been provided as the bracket is offset from the centre of the casing.

Heater delivered in good time extremely well packaged and all in order.

Not used in anger yet but it works well and I'm sure will meet my requirements for a large drying cupboard when the central heating is off.
Positioning the bracket to fix to the wall would have been made easier if a simple paper template illustrating the bracket screw holes in relation to the outline of the casing (as it is off centre) was provided.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback, we appreciate your comments greatly.
I am very pleased that you are happy with your new heater, but do apologies that your template was slightly off-center. If you call us on 01473 276686 we will be more than happy to source a new template for you if you still require it.

These heater heatsup okay but does not keep the room warm. As soon as one switches it off the room turns cold almost immediately.
Not a good buy.
An oil heater would have been a better purchase

I bought 13 heaters but unfortunately when the builders opened them they had no timers. I contacted the heater shop and explained the mix up. I would like to exchange them for the heaters with the timer option. To my surprise I was then told that since they have been opened I could not return them. I explained that They were just delivered and still brand new and not even used.
Just a mix up as these heaters had no timers.

I was then told to send pictures of the boxes to show that they were not all roped up as the heater shop said they could not take them back if the boxes were ripped apart.
Thank God the boxes were opened with care and they were all in good shape. So I sent the picture the next day of all the 13 boxes. To this day no one has had the decency to respond back to me!!!!!

All I wanted to do was swop the heaters to the timer option and pay the difference. So I am appalled with the service that I received after paying such a large sum of money.

Very disappointed customer

           Many thanks for your valuable feedback, I have fully investigated this unusual situation and the following appeared to have occurred. Heatershop originally quoted you a very efficient oil filled radiator with timer, to which you requested the cheapest branded heater we could provide (with no stipulation of a timer)  We then supplied the Dimplex PLX without timer, and received a call from you saying that you needed to return the products as you would prefer a timed heater. (having opened and removed every one of the 13 heaters from the original packaging.
Our returns department advised you if the products were returned in as new condition we would credit or exchange immediately after which you were going to contact our returns department when the products were ready for collection. We are still awaiting that call. 
I also understand we have tried to call you again and left messages toady with no response.
Please contact us ASAP to allow us to service your situation correctly.

Very neat heater. Does not take up too much wall space and 500watts with the thermostat control is ideal to maintain a comfortable temperature in our approximate 5sq m entrance porch.

The heater was excellent value, arrived the next day at the stated time and was well packed. Installed easily and just what was needed to heat our small hallway.

That's great to hear, thank you very much for your excellent review.

Living in Ipswich I was able to call in on the firm and bought exactly the heater I wanted without the worry of needing to be in to take a delivery.

Thank you for taking the time to review us and I am glad that we were able to help you.
