What Are You Buying?

Keeping warm and staying happy are always a top priority during cold seasons, especially if you have kids in the house. The Dimplex Oil Free Baby Column Heater is the perfect appliance for warming up small rooms and for keeping the kids’ bedroom toasty even in those unforgivingly cold seasons.

Well, this heater checks out. With its unique oil-free heating technology, this portable heater generates much more heat at an increased rate.

Research actually shows that oil free radiators have an advantage over oil-filled heaters in that not only do they heat a room much faster, but they’re also more economical. Perhaps that’s why the Dimplex Chico column heater is quite budget friendly.

At 700 watts, the Dimplex Oil Free Baby Column Heater is definitely energy efficient given the lower power requirement. But don’t be fooled by the lower consumption, it’s more than sufficient to thaw up some freezing nights. This is all made feasible by an advanced fin design which allows for better heat distribution.

Similarly, there are multiple heat settings as well as a built-in thermostat to get your temperatures just fine. And I couldn’t wind up without mentioning something about the independently tested and passed BEAB safety standards (British Electrotechnical Approval Board), thumbs up on that one.


How Easy Is It to Use?

How about staring with the fact that the Dimplex Oil Free Baby Column Heater contains absolutely no oil? So that means users don’t have to struggle with potentially flammable fuels that always seem to create a mess. In addition to eliminating any risk of leaking, this heater is also small enough to actually take with you to places and light enough to move from room to room.

Its lowly weight of 5.4kg makes it ideal for smaller rooms or areas with limited space. But I found that you can push the space limits just a tad if you have budget constraints since the oil free heater warms up really fast.

Aside from warming up more quickly and posing zero fire hazards, the column heater from Dimplex has also been touted as highly eco-friendly due to its ease of recycling. But that is of course after it has served its long, warm and useful life.

Anything Else You Should Know?

I know this is quite typical for most appliances, but I feel it’s worth giving a quick mention. The Dimplex Oil Free Baby Column Heater has a slight, plastic smell when used initially. However, I found that it subsides the more you use the heater and eventually wears off with time. I guess it’s because of some of the components heating up for the first time. Either way, you might want to give it a couple of days in the living room before moving it to the kids’ bedroom.


Conclusion

It’s compact, it’s affordable, it’s light, it even looks a bit flimsy; but it offers some of the quickest heating I’ve seen outside of a car. If you’re working with limited space or just wish to add a little warmth to the little ones’ rooms, then buying the Dimplex Oil Free Baby Column Heater is the best decision you could ever make.

Not only will it take up virtually no space, but it’s the safest way of providing portable heat to all areas of your home. As part of Dimplex’s Eco range of portable heaters, you can definitely rely on this model to save you from both high power bills and unnecessarily low temperatures.
