Not sure yet
Installed two of these a couple weeks ago and one has been working great, but the other’s LED display stopped working showing only partial digits and missing icons despite the heater working properly. It obviously needs to display correctly for safe usage so I think I have to return it, but seems like it could be a poor product. Hopefully Dimplex customer service can help.

    Bought 5 heaters and had to replace 3. Out of the 3 replacements 1 has already failed. All of the heaters started working immediately and then stopped working within a few days. They all were getting 240v to the heating element when thermostat would kick on, but would not produce any heat. If these worked properly, they would be absolutely genius. I purchased the wireless thermostat that can control all the heaters. I also downloaded the phone app to control via wifi. The heaters that do work can be turned up on our way to the condo. The look is much nicer than the old school electric baseboard heaters, however the construction seems to be lightweight, bending easily. Purchased 1st round in Dec 2016 and replacements Jan 2017. The packaging is also thin cardboard and came damaged, cracking one of the thermostat controls on the top of the unit.

    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.

    Great Heater. Terrible APP and Thermostat
    I am not sure why a company with the excellent level of customer support of Home Depot would even sell this product. The heater itself works as advertised. The WiFi Thermostat and APP DO NOT! I guess I should have heeded the bad reviews but I thought they would have been worked out. The APP and the thermostat will not connect and I bought this particular brand for this feature. 10 days ago I spent almost an hour on hold and then about 45 minutes with a customer support person at Dimplex. As hard as we both tried, the APP and the thermostat would not connect. The customer agent promised to send an e mail with instructions and then to get back to me with any other solutions or a plan to replace the thermostat. To this date I have heard nothing from Dimplex. As I wondered when I started this review, I don't understand why Home Depot Canada would sell a product with this type of poor customer support.

    Good Day,

    We are very sorry to hear that even with our technical service's assistance, you were unable to pair the controller with your baseboards (s). If the controller was purchased at Home Depot within the last 60 days they would be in a position to exchange this item for you. It it possible there is a defect in the item.

      Worked great but has now failed
      Bought 18 months ago and used it with the control panel to use wifi remotely via the app. Worked great but now the screen has went blank and can not use the heater any more. Trying to contact Dimplex to get help to see if the screen can be replaced. This unit should not have failed so soon.

          No "Off" setting - poor design concept
          Works fine, BUT you can't turn it off! I called Dimplex; true, unless you throw the breaker this is always on. So it has an economy setting which is only 5 deg below the regular setting. If you don't want any heating in the room, you have to pulse the temperature setting down below ambient. For such advanced electronics, this is poor design. I would have been so easy to add an "Off" setting. or make the setback range go beyond 5 degrees.

          Yes as you mentioned, this baseboard series with electronic built in thermostat does not have an off setting . This is outlined in our instructions/installations manual and on our website.

            Not good quality
            I bought two of these less then a year ago and about two weeks ago, one of he led displays quit and therefore so did the heater. Last week the second one experienced the same thing. No display. This a concern because if you are away for say two weeks and this happens, you have zero heat. I tried to call the number for Diplex listed in these reviews but not in service. I will be sourcing new heaters quickly since winter is almost here.

              Les stries murales sont common à des degrés divers avec tous les types de radiateurs à convection, y compris les plinthes électriques et les radiateurs hydrauliques (eau chaude). On peut même parfois le voir derrière les réfrigérateurs. Les stries murales commencent lorsque les particules qui se trouve dans chaque maison, sont attirées dans un radiateur à convection. Quand l’air se réchauffe, il devient également flottant (l'air chaud monte) et monte le long du mur. L'air chaud plus rapide devient turbulent car il se mélange à l'air froid en mouvement plus lent,
              Cela explique aussi la présence de stries sur la grille en haut du convecteur.

                  I purchased five of these heaters for my new garage/man cave. Four worked perfectly. The fifth would not heat. Home Depot replaced it but the new one does not heat either. Because I like the four that work properly, I am ordering three additional ones for a new addition to my home. Hopefully, they will work.

                    Really small, but heats up the space quickly. Nicer looking than traditional electric baseboard heaters. This took my 250 sq.ft. room from 45 to 65 in about 15 minutes. Easy to install and wire once I learned that there is no return back to the panel to complete the circuit. The circuit is completed within the heater.

                    Overall great product!
                    We installed a couple of these in our house replacing the old style baseboard heaters with these. What I like: - Heats up the home really quick - Our energy bill has came down a bit due to the programing and zoning I set up, I don’t have to go lower all the baseboards for night in the unoccupied areas, it does it automatically - They look much better then the old ones we had! What I dislike: - because of the shark fin design on the heat exchanger it puts out a lot of heat that rises directly; this works great at warming up house quickly, however we had a small incident where the window trim started melting and almost caught in fire; not hating on the product just read the manual and keep distances from flamable materials in mind (our old heater had a diffuser that moved heat away from the wall, so it wasnt ever a problem) - the thermostat has a low performing capacitive touch screen - setup is a bit tricky, need parience but once it is set up it works flawlessly Overall there is some room for improvement, however I love the product! Ps: no idea what the other gentleman is talking about when buzzing, this doesn't even click when they come on, they are silent

                      It was installed within a few hours by a professional (I had more than one). They are a new elegant design and fit the room perfectly. Has a thermostat so it fits into FHA guidelines for a heat source, but it doesn't have an "on/off" switch so I just turn off the breaker until needed. I'm installing it in the summer for a refi request so I can't really speak to how much heat it gives off, but the electrician said he's installed before and the customers like them.

                      Most miserable product
                      This is the most miserable product I have purchased in a long time. We spent about $1,500 to update all baseboard heaters in the house. It was miserable to install them because the front elements don't fit properly. It was miserable to configure the WiFi connectivity with the controller because the WiFi connection cuts out, the instructions are unclear and require trial and error, and the the WiFi range is not sufficient to cover the whole house. Finally, it is still miserable to use the controller because of its poor ergonomic design: touch buttons are not sensitive, setting a program is cumbersome and requires endless tapping and the whole layout is not clear. Most of the stock at Home Depot consists of returned, open item units sold as if they were brand new. Missing screws, and accessories were the norm. I regret making these purchases.

                        Works very well
                        We bought a number of these for our cottage. They are very slim and take up much less space. The only downside is when you use the spacer (which we recommend) that you then have a gap which small fingers and other items can fall into. We had a friend design and make a full filler for the gap. They should include this piece.
