About this deal

The design is very clever - if you put your hand above the radiator, it generates significant airflow ( without a fan or any moving parts) through intelligent heating vent design, so you are not just depending on the radiator heating the air immediately around it, it actually creates a great deal of airflow itself. The only thing I can see the DeL doing better is the timer (if you want one) and a marginal increase in speed at which it might get the room up to the required temp, but you'll use more electricity in doing so. Secondly, I intend to use this in a free-time/holiday cottage a fair drive away which I use from spring to autumn, and I have a gsm phone device plugged into the wall there, which I'll plug this heater into, and I can then turn the power on and off by sending a text message: so I can leave this heater in the 'on' position and turn it on and off simply by turning the power on and off at the wall remotely, via gsm. This may be a useful feature, but the overall power consumption should be the same as any other oil-filled. You slap this sucker under the window, turn it on, and the draft that enters is no longer a cold draft.

Posts are for general information, are not intended to substitute for informed professional advice (medical, legal, veterinary, financial, etc. If you can get the air moving over the heating fins more quickly, either by funnelling it like this or by using a fan, then - yes - more heat will be extracted from the radiator more quickly.I can also accept it is faster at getting a room up to temp due to its design, but cannot begin to guess how much so. It does have a timer you can set so that the heater comes on before you reach home but I have found that I haven't used it as once home it the room is cold, I switch it on and within 20 minutes the room has warmed up well. I don’t really live with background noise and I have sensitive hearing, silly things like this irritate me (I really should just put play a radio). Almost impossible to get through to them, and when I did get through they didn't seem to be able to help at all.

Working in a similar way to De'Longhi's Vento range, but at a more advanced level, the convective chimneys of the Dragon 3 range provide a "Super Chimney Effect" with multiple narrow chimneys, which increases convective air flow in a superior way.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.
