I recently received a Delonghi Full Room Radiant Heater to review from Amazon Vine Voices. Right away, I knew this useful heater can have its advantages because it possess an easy wheel system that will allow you to move the radiator around the room or to another spot in your house.
We have decided to put it in our own bedroom which is the biggest room on the second floor. But due to its location (facing north and above the garage) we thought that the radiator would help us not the get too cold at night. And we were right! Since we are using it we have slept better and do not wake up due to cold temperature in our room. We have programmed it to stay at 20 degrees Celsius for our comfort.
While I was testing it, one afternoon the room was particularly cold, so I decided to bring the temperature higher at 25 degrees to see how it will start. Immediately I could sense the heat coming out of the thermal slots which was nice. After a certain period of time, I decided to touch it to see if it gets too hot for the touch. I was please with the fact that I didn’t burn myself doing so. It was indeed warmer but not burning hot. So the thermal slots maximizes the heat flow but maintain the low surface temperature. Apparently this unit contains 35% more steel than standard radiators which enhance the rapidity of the heat and allow it to be more even.
This specific unit also has an energy saving 24-hour programmable time and adjustable thermostat with 3 heat settings. I have tested it and it works perfectly well. When you put the heat at maximum the radiator will immediately kick in and start heating your area. The digital panel and the easy to push buttons makes it easy to control the temperature.
There are two other interesting functions on the radiator. The first one is the antifreeze function. If you set the temperature to 5 degrees with the minus button, the appliance will activate to the antifreeze function and a snowflake symbol will appear. This will program the appliance to turn on automatically at the max power if the room temperature falls below 5 degrees Celsius. The ECO function can be selected in order to set the radiator to go to the most appropriate power level to guarantee optimum comfort while reducing energy consumption. We have decided to select this function when using the radiator.
You will also see a working indicator when the unit is heating the room. If it is red, the unit is working at the maximum power. If it is orange, the unit is heating at medium power. If it is green, the unit is heating at minimum power. Finally, if the indicator is absent, it means that the unit is not heating the room at the moment.
You will also have the possibility to program the unit for delayed start or delayed stop. This could be useful if you have specific time period you would like to have the unit working.
Finally, the Delonghi Full Room Radiant Heater possess a safe thermal cut off if the unit accidentally tips over. Note that even though this unit contains oil in it, it is completely sealed and it does not leak. You won’t have to refill the unit at any time while using it.
We also realized that compared to a smaller heating unit that we already have, the Delonghi Full Room Radiant Heater will take a bit longer to warm up the room. However, once it has reached the temperature desired, the warmth will stay longer.
The Delonghi Full Room Radiant Heater is available for purchase at a store near you. It is also available on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
