Storage Heaters

Storage heaters are an extremely popular way to heat homes designed to take advantage of cheap, night time economy 7 electricity in order to heat the home cost effectively and reducing consumption ensuring that running costs are kept low.

Storage heaters are also cheap and easy to install, requiring no pipe work or flues. Storage heaters also have no moving parts or internal combustion and are virtually maintenance free and do not require an annual safety check.

An older storage heater model can be bulkier and fairly basic, but many of the modern versions come with a built-in thermostat which allows them to release heat as needed, depending on the external temperature. This means you'll use less energy overheating your house when it doesn't need it, and should help you save on your bills. Storage heaters are exceptionally quiet, even those that use a fan.

Dimplex Quantum QM150 1500W Eco Fan Assisted Automatic Storage Heater

The build quality is poor. I had some difficulty getting the outer covers off, as a bracket was bent and distorted. I ended up putting it in a vice to undo a damaged screw and straightening the bracket. Once I’d done that it went together fine and so far seems to work well.

Dimplex XLE100 1000W Slimline Storage Heater

A smart and efficient heater, sophisticated enough to to cope automatically with spring clocks going forward, to replace a heater out of the ark. The only proviso is that it might have been made clearer that, unlike the storage heater it was replacing, it needed not only an Economy7 connection but a permanent connection to normal electrical power, for which neither I nor the installing electrician was prepared. A second visit was necessary for the electrician to organise a new cable run and socket to enable its connection. How long it will last remains to be seen - probably, given all its complications, not as long as its predecessor?

I placed an order for a new storage heater at 3.14 pm, thus missing the stated 3 pm cut-off for next day delivery. Despite this, the doorbell rang at 9.30 the next morning with a large pallet wheeled into our garage. Service of that kind could hardly be bettered.

Thank you very much for the really great review of our service, it is very much appreciated.

Dimplex Quantum QM070 700W Eco Fan Assisted Automatic Storage Heater

This is the second Dimplex Quantum Heater that I have bought from Heater Shop and I am delighted with my purchases. My home is cosy and I love the degree of control that I have with these heaters. They are also very smart in appearance and do not detract from my contemporary decor. I no longer have warm nights as the energy is stored and cold afternoons because the energy has been wasted. The heaters appear to be very energy efficient and they keep my home warm throughout the day without the need for a boost.

I ordered this heater for my hallway in June but due to delays in my refurbishment I only had it fitted last week, just in time for the change in the weather. Ordering was efficient, the member of staff was courteous and delivery was prompt. I was impressed that the gentleman knew that I had made a purchase a few months earlier. I would certainly use Heater Shop again.

Thank you very much for the great feedback of our service and 5 star review.
