New Dimplex XLE Lot 20-compliant storage heaters with digital control
Dimplex has released a new range of XLE slimline electric storage heaters, giving installers advanced, Lot 20-compliant models for storage heating upgrades.
With five models of varying size/output, the XLE range is the latest in Dimplex’s programme of product development to meet the requirements of Lot 20 of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive, which applies from January 2018 and which sets a minimum efficiency standard for all local space heaters.
The Dimplex XLE range offers dynamic storage capacity which automatically adjusts according to the user’s requirements, allowing energy saving by smartly calculating storage of off-peak energy and providing users with greater control of output throughout the day.
All models feature an integral digital controller with accurate electronic thermostat for seven-day time and temperature control, together with quiet, fan-assisted heat output.
Christian Hadley, head of product marketing for Dimplex, says: “When specified correctly, electric storage heating remains a viable source of heating in thousands of homes in the UK, but too many homeowners and tenants are left paying more than they need to because of outdated technology.
Models are available from 580mm (0.5kW) to 1,067mm (1.5kW) in width. www.dimplex.co.uk.
