Updated on 08/03/21: Due to the low number of OVO members using storage heaters, we decided to focus on other tech solutions that can help them lower their carbon emissions faster, and on a bigger scale.
As a result we no longer offer Dimplex storage heaters with our vcharge technology. If you’ve already signed up for it, this won’t affect you in any way. Everything will carry on working just as it should.
If you’re thinking of buying new storage heaters, this handy guide tells you everything you need to know.

Storage heaters use off-peak energy, usually overnight, to store up heat that can be gradually released throughout the following day. To do this, storage heaters have a highly insulated core, made up of a very high-density material. They’re designed to retain the stored heat for as long as possible.
Storage heaters began making their way into people’s homes in the 1960s. And since then, the technology has come a long way. So if you’ve not replaced your old heaters for some time, you could be missing out on some significant running cost savings thanks to high heat retention heaters, like Dimplex Quantum.
Quantum storage heaters are the bees-knees of high heat retention models. With advanced technology, they offer greater efficiency, comfort and control compared to older storage heaters. Using the world’s most advanced off-peak heater, it’s the perfect replacement for your old, outdated storage heating system. With exceptional levels of insulation, Quantum stores energy up during periods of low demand, and turns it into efficient heat when needed.
Other great features you can expect are:
- An ultra efficient heating system with low running costs delivered by maximising the utility of off-peak tariffs
- Dynamic storage capacity - automatically adjusts to user requirements
- Infinitely controllable electronic heat output to precisely match user lifestyle
- Incredibly quiet fan assisted heat output
- Attractive state-of-the-art design, no deeper than a double wet radiator
OVO customers will also get exclusive access to the Dimplex Control app. With this you'll be able to set your ideal temperature for each heater in the app, by room or zone! You can also get your bills under control by seeing hourly, weekly and yearly spend on heating, and switch on Holiday Mode in the app if you're going away.
