Hi YiXin

It will only use 2400 watts when on full. On settings lower than full, you will reduce the heat generated, and thus use less power. The amount of watts(energy) used is directly proportional to the heat the unit puts out. Hope this helps. A FixYa rating would be great for my solution. Thanks for using FixYa. Stay cosy :)

Dimplex Convector Heater EPX1000 turns off by itself

I have the same problem with 3 of the 5 EPX1000s I have fitted in my flat, although mine don't even warm up. They just immediately turn themselves off. My only conclusion is that they are rubbish. Specifically, the so-called overheat protection doesn't work. Avoid.
