Streamline your storage heater system with Dimplex Quantum
Userlevel 6

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 Using the world’s most advanced off-peak heater, it’s the perfect replacement for your old, outdated storage heating system.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.

I met the lovely people from Dimplex at an Industry event earlier this week and they are doing awesome things in their Customer team, and getting more Digital.

So not only would you get an awesome new, more energy efficient product to keep your home warm, you'll get great service from them too!! 🙂

You might want to check out how and why we work with them here.


I've got a 2 bed flat with good insulation. There's no gas supply and only electric, both heating and water as well.

There was an old storage heater in the living room and panel heaters in the bedrooms and water tank that's electrically heated as well.

I'm looking to replace the storage heater and panel heaters as they are old and bulky. I've looked at Electrorad Aeroflow electric radiators, but they are quite pricey and not sure if they are better than the cheaper Dimplex panel heaters?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Any comments would be much appreciated.
