Drive away those chills with portable heating!
Not just for those that haven't been able to get into work over the past couple of weeks but also for those that regularly work from home, Dimplex offers a stylish and energy efficient selection of portable heaters. These can provide a powerful source of warmth directly where it is required, without the need to heat the whole house.
As more and more of us choose to work from home, the need for effective heating of a single room or office area has also risen. While these people will save on commuting costs, the financial implications for increased presence in the home throughout the day, particularly in terms of energy use, cannot be ignored. For those who are concerned about a rise in heating bills as a result, the portable heaters offered by Dimplex provide an immediate, efficient answer.
A key example is the GloFan, which features an attractive black design enhanced by Glo-Ring technology, which glows either blue or red depending on the mode chosen. It offers heat up to 2kW, and cool air for the warmer months.
Further options for the home office include the Studio G, a speaker style ceramic tower heater, which can be conveniently operated by remote control from the comfort of a desk. It features oscillation through 76 degrees to warm an area faster, with a 2.5kW output and two heat settings.
Finally, the Microfire is perfect for those who want their portable heater to make a style statement. Available with a glossy black or red finish, it uses the striking Optiflame effect to give the appearance of a real fire, and can be a focal point in any home office.
Nick Paul, Marketing Manager, Multiple Retail, for Dimplex, says: "For those who work from home energy use is sure to be a real concern, particularly as fuel costs continue to rise, and they will be looking for ways to keep warm without being wasteful.
"Portable heating is the answer here, and Dimplex offers a variety of models with designs and styles for all tastes. Our GloFan is an excellent example, proving an effective and cosy source of heat, housed in a stylish appearance."
