Answer: 
I suggest not. The instructions say that the wall temperature above the unit can reach 165 degrees F. would mount it well away from where it can be bumped to avoid burns.

Answer: 
The rising heat as with any heater should not be blocked. You can put a desk near it and closer than other electric heater, but you need to leave a space from wall to let heat rise as is in instructions. Also have table close by and the open top of the heater will leave things prone to falling into the vent and melting to the fins.

Good morning, they can be placed under a desk but make sure there are no wires (computer wires etc) nearby. Please see the installation guide for furniture placement. http://www.dimplex.com/cms/publications/7211700100R15_EN_Website.pdf

All Linear Proportional Convectors must be connected from the right side of the heater.
NOTE: The left hand end of the enclosure can be used as a junction box and the space under the heater can be used as a wire way.
Linear Proportional Convectors are high performance heaters designed to operate at higher outlet temperatures than conventional baseboard heaters. They can be directly mounted onto drywall, plaster, wood or concrete walls. Due to the higher outlet temperature, the wall surface can reach temperatures of 160º F (71º C) or above and some materials may discolor or deform at these temperatures, e.g. vinyl or plastic. In these cases the heater can be mounted with an offset from the wall and floor to reduce the temperature being applied to those materials. By installing the heater with the provided Installation Optimizer kit, the temperature of the wall above the heater can be reduced to 129º F (54º C). Please check with your place of purchase as to the shipping cost. Read Less

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seem to do the job I didn't give an excellent review because I don't have others to compare. They do seem like good heaters, fairly easy to operate and install. I used the included spacers to get the heater away from the wall and it didn't seem to get too hot. I had a few covers (bought quite a few of various wattage's) slightly bent but the go back easily. They look nice for a heater, take up less wall space, and like the thermostat/control included. I received one that had obviously been previously used and HD sent a new one out quickly along with some extra spacers from Dimplex. Overall a good experience. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small and no noise I was looking for a pair of heaters to put in my basement to replace and old 3500 watt at 112 inches and a 84 inch 1500 watt. I read the reviews and was reluctant because of the noise complaint. I bought two heaters and they installed easily. Instructions were simple and the size was easy to get them level and to the point I only needed one hand to hold in place and another for the level. Very pleased there. There is no noise at all that I was able to notice. I did notice some buzzing when I initially tested, but I had the front faceplate barely on and only one screw holding it to wall in case I needed to take apart again. This was resolved by securing to wall and placing face plate firmly on unit. Happy to report no buzzing at all. The units are small and the on board thermostat should be set 2 to 4 degrees cooler than you want the room. Remote setup is easy. Just hold the buttons on both the unit and controller. take lock icon off by hitting same button again on heater and then press any button on remote. CON: Remote does NOT monitor room temp. It has no two way communication. It just tell the heaters thermostat what setting you want. I didn't realize that and had I paid more attention I would have gone with the cheaper heater and hardwired in some thermostats. However, not a bad heater and they work great and look great. Would highly recommend and they save space big time. January 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent heat - on site to buy more I bought one to replace a 40 year old baseboard heater in my church secretary's office. I also bought the remote thermostat. Installation was quick and painless. There is no hum, no popping or any other issue. Programming the remote was a bit confusing, but once paired, it works like a dream. December 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very space efficient and quiet heater I replaced my old creaky and very long radiator with this much shorter and quiet unit. The digital thermostat is clear and easy to use. The wireless remote that can be purchased separately is perfect for controlling all of your heaters remotely without needing to rewire your residence. To the gentlemen who is experiencing an overly loud buzz, I would check that you've grounded the unit properly or that you're using the right voltage and wattage for house's specific electricals. The only improvement they could make is to have deeper venting fins so that the heat could be projected somewhat away from the wall. January 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Uber noisy horrible product All dimplex above 1000 wats make horrible loud buzzing noises. The remote wireless controller is horrible to program. BAd product. I regret buying First review ever written i am so mad, i was compelled to do it. January 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazed I was told about these heaters by my electrician cousin. He has recently installed them on a job site. So after researching them I decided to get them. I am slowly adding them to my house and after one day I can feel the difference in my main living areas where I have installed them so far. I hope they are worth the extra money. My heaters were all very old so I am sure there will be a huge difference. But the force of the heat coming out it amazing. Just make sure nothing is above them as the wall gets really warm and it says it can warp certain things if too close. December 10, 2012
