Product Overview

The Dimplex 20 in. 500-Watt Linear Proportional Baseboard Heater has a innovative sleek and compact design. This revolutionary heater has a built-in electronic thermostat with heat proportioning for improved efficiency and reduced energy consumption. Dimplex baseboard heaters are the ideal heating solution for any area of your home.

  • New electronic proportioning thermostat, with CSA-C828 compliant control (+/-0.5oC/1oF), RF transceiver for on-board temperature control and heater-to-heater telegraphing
  • Faster heating of the room than a conventional baseboard due to rapid vertical laminar air flow, directing heat to the ceiling, speeding dispersal of warm air into the center of the room
  • Improved performance and reduced length through use of top heat discharge and new fin design
  • Superior shark-fin blade design on a steel tubular element for improved heat transfer and longer life
  • Discreet styling, reduced length and added versatility of placement provide more options when designing a room
  • Full length automatic overheat reset for safety
  • Optional wall mounted remote control for multi-heater temperature regulation
  • Finish - specially-formulated epoxy/polyester powder coating is environmentally friendly and resists fading and abrasion
  • Heating element - a nickel chromium element is totally enclosed within a steel sheath, providing superior life expectancy and resistance to rust, shark-fin shaped aluminum fins are firmly staked in an upright position to provide directional wicking for top discharge heat transfer
  • Controls and wiring - supplied with an installed electronic proportioning thermostat for CSA- C828 compliant control; an RF transceiver for remote heat control and whole-home temperature syncing, wall mounted remote control for user convenience (optional accessory)
  • Installation - easily removed front caps; knock-outs on both sides of the convector; and pre-stamped mounting holes make installation easy
  • Applications - all residential applications, commercial offices, lobbies, washroom

Can I use the thermostat on one of these to control a second unit?

Need two baseboards for a single bathroom. If both CAN be controlled from one unit, do I need one with thermostat and one without, or both with thermostats? Thanks!
Asked by: Bik
Good Morning, The LPC comes with an on board digital thermostat. Each LPC has its own thermostat. The LC series does not comes with a thermostat, you have the option to purchase a dial thermostat or have a wall thermostat. Thank you

20 in. 500-Watt Linear Proportional Convector Baseboard Heater is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heater I have installed lots of these heaters. Great little units, simple to install. For the couple of people that complained about instructions and lack of information. You should stop doing electrical work before you hurt yourself or burn down your home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive but extra features are worth it Bought this to heat a small master bathroom, which it does well. More expensive than the more common models, but the on-board electronic programmable thermostat was worth it for us. Did have to get the optional spacer kit from the manufacturer to get the heater a bit off the floor and wall, this puppy gets hot and shoots heat upward as opposed to outward. Only problem I had with installation/wiring was that the green ground screw was in a hard-to-reach location in the heater, so I bought a 6" ground extension from HD, problem solved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insufficient information to purchase! I have re-read the specifications a few times and find no mention of the voltage this item operates on? How do the electrically ignorant people who entered this information expect someone to purchase the unit without this vital information? Can the unit be internally wired to provide 500W at both 120 and 220 Volts? Is it wired for 500W at 220Volts only? Is it wired for 500W at 120Volts only????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heater This is the second heater I'm buying as I'm very happy with the first one. I use them in smaller bathrooms. I also got the wall thermostat so they can both be synced from same thermostat. It's great. Installation was was easy, no issues.
