Dimplex XLE050 500W Slimline Storage Heater
Dimplex XLE represents the new non-high heat retention standard for storage heating, raising the bar over conventional storage heaters.
XLE storage heaters offer dynamic storage calculation, adjusting the amount of energy that is stored to meet the user’s requirements without wastage. As a result, a greater amount of electricity can be saved with off-peak energy.
Users now have greater control over their heating with the built-in timer, allowing heating times and temperatures to be defined. Heat leakage, a common trait of conventional storage heaters, has also been greatly reduced allowing the room to be at a comfortable temperature in the morning and still have enough stored energy to heat on a night.
The XLE is a modern replacement for older storage heaters with a clean look and reliable performance.
Why Choose the XLE Slimline Storage Heater?
• Harness off-peak electricity tariffs for low running costs
• High-density cells dynamically store and use energy within a slimline design
• Fan assisted to quickly, quietly and more effectively distribute heat
• Delivers variable, programmable room temperatures with three seven-day timer profiles
• Complies with Lot 20 of ERP Directive

ok overall, no infor on day and night connections required.
The order service was good and follow-up but the delivery was late and there was no apology or notice it was delayed. The delivery man was very rude saying he could not find the property to deliver, was un apologetic instead yelled at us.
Overall a bad experience and shockingly poor delivery service and no customer courtesy for being late.

Works as expected, silent and easily programmed.
Good communication and prompt delivery.
However delivery to a domestic address by a 32 tonne articulated truck was a bit of a mistake.
Especially as there was no lifting equipment on the truck.
I was advised that the truck would have a tail lift, but it sadly didn't.
Fortunately I had a lifting platform, and neighbours.
I'm assuming this was all due to Covid restrictions, so I'm not that concerned

I made my purchase with you because the heater was described as a storage heater and appeared to be the same as the one it has replaced. It is not at all the same.
I would describe it as a room heater that can release its heat, fairly quickly, according to the setting. As it has a fan, it does not store the heat for very long.
PS I have heated my house very happily, with storage heaters for over 25 years. I don't get heat at the times I want, from the one I bought from The Heater Shop.
I buy my electricity at the cheap night rate and benefit from convection heat during the expensive day time.
If I had talked to someone about the heater I would have been better informed and may have chosen a more suitable model.
I am very happy with the supply and delivery of my new heater.
After it had been fitted I realised that I should have had a lot more information about the way the heater worked, before I bought it.
I assumed, stupidly, that as it was described as a storage heater it would work like the one it replaced.
The new heater has a fan that wafts the heat into the room. I don't need that because the heater is very cool by mid-day.
Convection is good enough for me, the heat in my old heaters is given out slowly all day. My old storage heaters are switched on by EOn, when the rate changes from high to low.
The room setting for the heater you supplied, set at the factory, is too low and the instruction in the handbook are unclear. I haven't had courage to try to change the temperature from 21 to 24 yet.
I will consider buying any new heaters I need from The Heater Shop but I will require far more information about how they work before any new purchase.
Thank you for your feedback.

Good price and fast delivery
The sales team were really helpful and provided some good advice. The price was very competitive and the item dispatched quickly.
The new Dimplex heater is an excellent replacement for our old night storage heater which has lasted us many years but finally given up the ghost.
As e live in a narrow and steep lane their chosen method of dispatch is by using a large lorry and I had to have the item delivered to a friendly builders merchant as their lorry could not deliver to anywhere but main A roads.
A sprinter type delivery van would have been an ideal solution!
Thank you for the great feedback. With any speciality orders I would advise calling our office to discuss where we are very happy to assist where possible.

We are very pleased with the Dimplex Storage heater up to now, but we have only had it working for a week. Our old storage heaters don't have a fan, so the noise of the fan takes a bit of getting used to. We have had our old Dimplex storage heaters for around 30 years, so hope this one lasts as long.
The service from the Heater shop was very good, we ordered the new storage heater just before Christmas as our old storage heater in the lounge had failed after 30 years of service. The heater arrived within 24 hours of ordering it and we managed to get an electrician to fit it before Christmas. We would definitely use the Heater shop again when our old storage heaters fail.
Thank you for the really fantastic review of our service and delivery.

It's summer so I have not used it yet, but it looks fine.
Delivery took place on the day I was given but the delivery vehicle was too big for a residential street with cars parked on street. Also the storage heater arrived on a pallet, wrapped in plastic. This might be fine for delivery to a workplace or industrial premises but not for delivery to a home. Consequently, with assistance from delivery driver, I had to unpack the heater and trolley it in a number of journeys to my flat. The driver was helpful but I think you need to take account of the fact that not all deliveries are to industrial premises.
Thank you very much for your review, we appreciate your comments.
With larger items, they are always palletised for ease of transport and to mitigate any chance of damaging goods and delivered in this way.
I am sorry if you were not expecting this type of delivery, however, we do try to ensure that all customers are aware of this in all correspondence and our website is also very clear with a page on delivery for those who are unsure.

Why can't they make something simple?
What I wanted was a convector economy 7 storage heater, but it seems they all have fans now and every other option as well. Some options, if used could draw on peak time power! not why you buy a storage heater. The heater also requires a separate hard wired socket to 24hr supply, to enable the above I guess.
Settings are many I found it difficult to reach the one I wanted in several instances.
An on/off knob with a 1-6 heat output choice would have been perfectly adequate.
