Early / Late boost in dimplex storage heater

Hi, I don't understand how the early and late boost works on the storage heater. Someone told me I should turn the output switch off when I am at work during the day, then turn the output control up when I get home. But hardly any heat comes out!!! When should the early and late boost be used?

    What times of day does 'early boost' and 'late boost' refer to? and should you lave the boost on the hottest setting, does it use up all the stored heat too quickly? - Thanks

    I rent a house with a Dimplex night store heater. It has two dials. One is 'Room Temp Boost' and the other is 'Input'.



    'Input' is obviously the level of heat, so I don't need any help with that.



    'Room Temp Boost' ranges from 1-9 with a key stating that 1 = No Boost, 2 = Late Boost, and 9 = Early Boost.



    How does the 1-9 dial relate to a time of the day?

The output setting if turned off isn't adjusting the temperature in the room automatically if its off,and by turning the output up is like turning up the heat.By turning the output switch on you can let the heater automatically control the heat.Still you need to monitor the adjustments to your liking and then you know how hot it will be when you come back into that room.

I have two dimplex XLN storage heater, it was working last year but after someone put damp clothes on it, they are not working, could you help me please


It sounds as though it has tripped the internal cut-out - this can be manually reset quite easily by yourself. It would probably be best to ring Dimplex customer services on 0845 6005111 to get them to talk you through it step-by-step though.

Hi,
It may be that the off peak to your house has failed to switch on, possibly due to the off peak time switch in your meter cupboard not working, I suggest you contact your local electricity board and ask them to check your off peak supply

Output switch is the one that says Cool-Off-Heat. Turn this offwhen you aren't home.
Output control is the thermostat. If you want to heat the room turn up the thermostat to the desired heat after putting the output switch on heat. It will take a few minutes for the heater to get hot. Early boost would be if you want immediate higher blower speed to speed up keep the heated air from being too hot and late boost will hold off the fan until the heater is higher in temp and the air temp discharged will be hotter.

it does not relate to the time of day it relates to the temp in the room
as you know most heaters do not run continuously, they cycle on ambiant temp.
the boost setting is actually tweeaking that cycle,
you are actually setting the vairence in the temp setting
each modle is slightly differant but

here is an example

9 late boost, might let the temp differential drop as low as 25 degrees
1 early boost might only allow a 2 degree differential

Dimplex night storer, how does it work?


Are you setting the input to maximum and the boost to late? You do not say what size the heater is in either kilowatts or kilowatt hours eg 2kW or 18kWh. These heaters will tend run out of stored heat in the evening especially in colder weather.
