The image of storage heaters that people often have are of the bulky, unresponsive units of the 1970’s and 80’s. Well since then storage heaters have come a long way.
These days the modern fan assisted storage heaters are slimmer and store and distribute the energy more effectively.
The Quantum storage heater by Dimplex is one of the most efficient and effective storage heaters to hit the market. First of all it boasts a more compact and better insulating inner core, which means that it can store up to 70% of useful heat.
Like the fan-assisted storage heater, the Quantum heater also has a fan based system to distribute the heat. Where it goes beyond most other models is that it not only has sophisticated heating controls, namely a very impressive LCD screen and dials to give power to the user, but the charge controller is fairly advanced, which means that the heater has inbuilt algorithms that enable it to learn the heating habits of the domestic user. Old style heaters relied on output dials, which estimated the local room temperature – a very ineffective way to run a heating system.
Where the Quantum is also good is that it has an additional energy management system, which consists of a separate wall device which plugs into the telephone socket, then ‘two-way’ communicating with your energy company to optimise the periods when it is charging and when it is not.
The Quantum storage heater is also pleasing on the eye – also coming in various sizes to suit the requirements of your living space. It has a smooth curvature and can fit into tight spaces thereby maximising your habitable space.
