  • Will a convector heater suit my needs?

    Convection heaters operate on the principle that warm air rises and they take advantage of the natural convection effect produced by warm air to distribute heated air throughout the room.

    They are light and easy to carry and can be wall mounted. They provide steady, silent heat. Some models come with fan assisted features to speed up heat distribution.

    They are ideal for medium-term use but they do not maintain heat once switched off.

    For more information please see our heating guide.

  • My convector heater has a metal frame but has no earth wire - Is this normal?

    Convector heaters are typically Class II appliances. This means they have double insulation. To confirm this there will be a symbol on the heater of a square within a square (see left). Double insulated or Class II electrical appliances are products that have been designed in a way so as not to require a safety connection to electrical earth.

    Class II insulation provides sufficient barrier to protect the user and are independently safety validated. 

  • How much does it cost to run my heater?

    It is very difficult to accurately determine how much it costs to run a heater within your own environment. It depends largely on the type of house, size of room and quality of insulation.

    However the maximum the heater will cost will per 1 unit of electricity per hour, per kilowatt of heat. For example, if you have a 2KW heater the maximum it will use is two energy units per hour. Oil filled radiators are more economical to run because they retain heat longer and power demand through the temperature control is called upon less frequently. Electric heaters heat only the room you are in and not the entire house, providing extra heat only where required and helping to optimise energy consumption.

    Electricity costs vary across suppliers. If you check your bill you will be able to find out how much you are paying per unit of electricity.

  • How long is the cable on the De'Longhi heaters?

    Most Delonghi heaters have a cable approximately 1.5m in length.

    Extension leads are not be used with the heaters as their rating is likely to be inadequate for power level required.

  • What precautions should I take before using my heater?

    • Always check the appliance and the power cord for signs of damage or deterioration.
    • Never cover the appliance, even temporarily, to prevent the risk of overheating.
    • Keep the appliance away from flammable objects.
    • Completely unwind the power cord whenever using the appliance
    • Do not let water penetrate into the appliance
    • Make sure the appliance's rated voltage corresponds to the mains power supply.
  • Do any of your heaters contain PTFE?

    None of the De'Longhi heater parts contain PTFE type materials.
