Dimplex, the world’s largest heating manufacturer of electric heating products, is shaping the future of electric heating. They have developed a revolutionary system that combines state-of-the-art electric heating with an economical demand response management tool.
Designed and developed by their own in-house team of experts and manufactured in their own factory in Northern Ireland, Quantum used low cost, off-peak energy and is up to 27% cheaper to run and uses 22% less energy than comparable static storage heaters.
Key facts about the Dimplex Quantum Heaters:
- Uses off-peak tariffs for low running costs – on a room-by-room basis it is expected that 90% of the heating requirement will be met by off-peak energy
- Automatically adjusts to the user’s needs through its dynamic storage capacity
- Precisely matches the user’s chosen heating profile
- Intuitive easy-to-use controls with LCD display
- Maintenance free
- Designed to cover previous ‘fixing marks’ of most comparably sized traditional storage heaters
Wessex Electricals were successful in tendering for a contract on the Isle of Wight with Housing 21. This contract involves the replacement of night storage heaters with new Quantum Dimplex heaters in 29 bedrooms at Evan Williams Court, Carisbrooke.
We have recently completed a full heating upgrade to 33 flats and communal areas at Belmont Court in Parkstone on behalf of Poole Housing Partnership. This contract involved replacing the old storage heaters with brand new Dimplex Quantum heaters.
In April of 2013, Wessex Electricals were successful in tendering for a heating installation contract with Sovereign Housing, and began work on 88 properties in Chippenham, Wiltshire. The contract consisted of removing the existing air to air heat pumps and install new Dimplex quantum heaters throughout the 88 properties.
We have also carried out further storage heater installation works at 60 properties for Wiltshire Council in the last year. There are an increasing number of Housing Associations and Council’s that are starting to look at the Dimplex Quantum heater because of its ability to offer a low cost heating solution that can reduce tenant’s heating bills, provide instant heat on demand.
