Dimplex OPH Radiant Heaters
Dimplex patio heaters, wall-mounted electric outdoor heaters with robust silver aluminium weatherproof IPX4 casing. Perfect for outdoor areas including gardens, seating areas, dining areas or smoking areas. These patio heaters use either halogen or infrared elements (depending on the model) to create highly directional heat that warms people, not the air around them. This, combined with PIR motion sensors on some models, makes these some of the most economical outdoor heaters on the market.

Tests have proven infrared red heaters are more effective warming the skin, this means they will require less electricity to run (more effective on a lower setting). Halogen heaters use a halogen light bulb (so will require a bulb change at some point) which means they are brighter, the heat is more evenly dispersed and they are better at heating over larger distances. Another advantage of a halogen heater is that they are certainly more comfortable if you have to sit close to one!
