Russell Hobbs adds new heating and dehumidifier products for Autumn 2019

Russell Hobbs is expanding its range of products with the launch of new heating devices and dehumidifiers.

The new range consists of six heating devices, two dehumidifiers and electric under-blankets and all are set to be available from a range of UK retailers from early September 2019.

There are four electric heaters which include: Russell Hobbs Portable Plug-in PTC Heater, ideal for small spaces such as workshops and offices; Russell Hobbs Retro Fan Heater with a stylish design in black and grey with a silver trim, Russell Hobbs 2kW Convection Heater with three heat settings, a variable temperature output and fan function for warmer months. The 2kW Convection Heater is also available with a handy timer.

The two Russell Hobbs Oil Filled Radiators are available in black or white, and in two sizes; 7 Fin 1.5kW and 9 Fin 2kW, for cost-effective heating in rooms up to 15m2 and 20m2. They feature an integrated handle, castors and power cable storage for easy manoeuvring and storage during the summer months.

All products have a two-year guarantee – a free one-year manufacturer guarantee, with a free second-year guarantee available upon registering the product.

Mike Little, divisional vice president, EMEA Appliances, said: “We are always looking for new ways to be innovative and increase our product range to meet the demands of the market and this seemed like a natural progression for Russell Hobbs. We’re intent on providing consumers with the very best products that offer a range of solutions within the home. This new collection of heating products and dehumidifiers is a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio and we’re confident our customers will be really happy with the new products.”

Nick Birchall, commercial director of manufacturer G2S, added: “We have seen some great successes in the market within our existing portfolio of Russell Hobbs licensed products (microwaves, white goods and floorcare) and now we are really excited to be expanding into the heating and dehumidifier markets to keep our consumers warm and comfortable in Autumn/Winter 2019 and beyond.”
