Find the perfect air care solution for your home

Heaters BG 1

Heaters, fans and air treatment buyers guide

Are you looking for additional heating to keep you and your family warm in the winter months? Or maybe you want something to cool you down during the summer. Whatever the weather, our range of heaters and fans will keep you comfortable all year-round.

And if you’re looking to improve the air quality in your home, we’ve got you covered with our collection of air purifiers and dehumidifiers. If you’re not sure which option is right for you, this guide will help you find the perfect air treatment solution for your needs. 

Heating appliances

We stock two main types of heaters: small portable heaters and electric fires

Portable heaters

There are several types of portable heaters to choose from. So what’s the difference? Convector heaters generate heat via an electric element, with warm air rising up and then circulating around the room. Traditional fan heaters, however, blow air through a heater element to provide a quick blast of heat, while panel heaters use a combination of radiant heat and convection heat to warm a room.

Electric fires

If you’re looking for something that has a little more style as well as heat, an electric fire is a great option. They’re perfect for a cold winter’s night and add a cosy aspect to a room. 

We have a range of electric fires in various styles and sizes in stock, so you can be sure to find the right one for you. Dimplex have some fantastic products that simulate smoke – have a look at our site for Optimyst fires.

Cooling fans

A classic bladed desk or pedestal fan is a great budget-friendly option. While they don’t cool down the surrounding air, they create a powerful breeze that will help you to feel cooler when at close range.

Alternatively, Dyson’s bladeless fans provide high-velocity cooling and are quieter than traditional bladed fans. Some models can also heat and purify the air too (see below).

Air treatment

Air purifiers

An air purifier cleanses the air in your home by drawing it in through a filter to remove impurities and odours. This makes them ideal for asthmatics, allergy sufferers and homes with pets. Dyson has a range of products that can deal with 99.95% of microscopic allergens to give you fantastic air quality day after day.


A dehumidifier keeps your home clean and healthy by removing moisture from the air. This helps to prevent mould from forming on the walls and ensure the moisture level in your home remains at a healthy level. Dehumidifiers are particularly useful if you dry your laundry inside. 

There are two main types of dehumidifier – desiccant and refrigerated. Desiccant dehumidifiers are suited to lower temperatures, such as in cellars, but they tend to cost more as they need to work harder. Refrigerated machines are often cheaper but they can be noisier. It’s worth researching before you buy there are various factors to consider, such as the size of the space and its location.

Dyson Hot and Cool Purifiers

If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution, a Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier is the perfect option. As well as keeping the temperature in your house just right, it also purifies the air and removes odours and contaminants from your home. Some models even provide live air quality reports on an LCD screen.
