Design and usability
Taking design cues from the leading Dimplex Quantum heater, the Q-Rad150 is sleek, slim and stylish combining good looks with simple controls and it boasts a range of unique, intelligent features which work automatically to help keep you warm for less.
The Q-Rad150 combines the latest, most advanced technologies to give you maximum control over your heating, allowing you to choose when you want heat and at what temperature using the intuitive heater control. A low thermal mass allows Q-Rad to heat up quickly and react more responsively to changes in room temperature. This means improved control, comfort and energy saving.
This electronic interface comprises of an LCD display screen and six touch-sensitive buttons: Menu, Back, Advance, Up (arrow), Down (arrow) and Enter, which make an audible 'beep' when pressed. The pitch of the sound will rise and fall in line with the temperature selected and the temperature display is also colour-coded to assist the visually impaired. (Note: audio feedback may be disabled when not required). Q-Rad features a Child Lock to prevent little hands from tinkering with your settings. Simply press and hold the Back and Enter buttons on the heater control for three seconds. The words 'Child Lock' will appear at the bottom of the screen to tell you that this function is active.
The QRad 150 has a convective element and a radiant element. It uses one or both heat sources automatically to maintain an accurate target room temperature. It calculates the time needed to heat a room, with both the convective and radiant element beginning by operating at full power. As the room approaches the target temperature, Q-Rad begins to cycle the convective element between full and reduced power until the target temperature is reached. At this point this switches off the convector avoiding overshooting and saving you energy. To maintain the target temperature, it cycles the convective and radiant elements on and off as required.
For more information on the Dimplex QRAD, watch this short video from Dimplex;
The Q-Rad 150 has a unique self-learning delayed start function, which learns the thermal characteristics of a room and determines how long the appliance needs to operate in order to reach target temperatures based on factors such as room size, heat losses and the prevailing weather. Measuring the heat-up and cool-down times of the room, and how they vary with external temperature, the heater will work out what time it needs to start heating in order to reach the user-defined target temperature at a specified time. Inevitably, this minimises wasted energy and can deliver cost savings for users e.g. If you plan to get up at 7am and your desired temperature is 21oC: with a traditional system, you would need to estimate when to set the heating to come on to ensure it preheats the room in time. Depending on your settings and prevailing temperatures, this could mean that the room is still cold when you get out of bed or that it has been warm for some time before it needed to be. However, with this clever feature, Q-Rad anticipates when it needs to start heating to reach 21oC by 7am, pre-heating for shorter periods when the weather is mild and longer periods to ensure you're warm in the winter.
The Dimplex QRad150 comes with 4 pre-programmed timer modes: Out All Day, Home All Day, Holiday and Use Timer. The times of these may be modified to suit your lifestyle, plus there's a handy Advance function that lets you change your settings temporarily. Should a window or door be left open accidentally, it will detect a sudden change in temperature and scale back the output to 50%. Once the window or door has been closed, Q Rad 150 will return to normal operation. This technology ensures the output from the heater is reduced when heat is escaping from a room, thereby avoiding wastage and saving you money.

Super efficient sales service. Dispatched within half an hour of ordering. Delivered next day in a predetermined one hour time slot and brought into my apartment.
It’s good looking, the controls are simple to use and it belts out the heat.
I’m so impressed that I have ordered and received two more.
Amazing service. An email arrived within half an hour of ordering to tell me that the heater had been dispatched. It arrived the following day in an hour time slot given to me that morning.
The heater was very very well packaged.
It looks amazing and, despite its size, it belts out the heat! The controls are easy to use. I am so delighted that I have ordered and received another two.
Thank you very much for your really great service review and we appreciate your fantastic comments.

Looks good on the wall and kicks out heat well. Timer is not complicated to use like some reviews have said. However it is a bit faffy to change one setting, if like me you're using the 24 hour timer. It's great that it's got loads of timer options though. My electrician installed it but didn't mention any problems with doing it.

Easy to use and heats the room well
Purchasing the heaters online was straight forward but the delivery was late. I initially called to change the delivery to a date that suited me, which I think should have been offered online but there it was a straight forwards process. On the updated delivery date DPD seemingly misplaced the radiators and did not deliver until the next week. This meant I had to take an extra day off work causing a significant inconvenience. While this delay may not have been the Heater Shop's fault I would expect better for a product of this cost.

Lovely heaters exactly what was needed
31 January 2017 19:57
This is as excellent radiator. More expensive that the PLX range but has more options and has an electronic timer. Which is not affected when the additional room thermostat kicks in unlike the PLX.
Order was easy. When I did have to contact you again I found out that you were a hub for many other 'companies'. However this did not detract from the fact that the goods arrived on time and in perfect condition. They are now fitted and are working well. Thank you.
Thank you for your excellent review.

Chosen because the control panel matched the way in which the QM150 storage version works. This way all the heating appliances in my house operate in as similar a way as possible. Perhaps the rear panel of the appliance could be made of thicker steel to avoid a bit of flexing around where the mounting bracket attaches.
Very helpful. Prompt delivery on exactly the day I requested (at the break of dawn in fact!)
Thank you very much for your really great review. We appreciate the informative comments that you have made, which will be very helpful to potential customers looking to purchase similar items.
I hope that our couriers didn't get you up too early!
