Ok heater but no timer

published

The heater seems ok but it does not have a timer. You can ask it to turn off in 12 hours manually but something like come on at 6:30 am turn off at 9am is not possible. Amazing for a heater built recently

Purchased in for $319.

Impressed

published

I was wary of purchasing an oil heater for a timber house with high ceilings but this thing is great. The heater pumps out hot air almost silently due to the great design. It has two timers (to turn off and turn on) so you can wake up comfortably to a warm house.

Very impressed by the heater and would definitely recommend to others.

Used for kids bedrooms

published

We leave this on high with a Heater Mate thermostat plug to do the regulating. Keep it on at 20 degrees all night. Great for the kids( 4&8yrs) bedrooms in winter. It clicks when heating up and cooling but once I’d explained what that was it didnt bother them and never woke them. Expensive though. But works like you hope it will. And yes the foldaway wheels do make it easier to store away in summer.

Turn off the sound!

published

The heater is fabulous EXCEPT you can't turn off the sound. I set the timer to turn the unit on an hour before I wake up to heat up my room before I have to get up for work and the beep it makes to indicate it is on is so loud that it wakes me up!! The beep is totally unnecessary and if i had known about it before purchasing I wouldn't have chosen this heater. I would have given this a 5 star if the sound wasn't such an issue.

Good heater, perfect for what us.

published

I purchased for my sons room as his room gets much colder than the rest of the house, & I didn’t want to run the ducted air-con all night. I usually turn it on before I put him to bed and by that time the room is nice and warm. its easy to use and does exactly what it says it does. I don’t use the timer, I run it from bedtime until my son wakes up. I like that I can set to a certain temperature without worrying about the room getting too hot as it has a auto shut off If it’s too hot. It was simple to set up, & the oil smell for first time use went away within a few hours. We’ve been using every night since we purchased it and have had no issues with it.

Perfect as a heater

published

Bought this at GoodGuy and it was super effective heating up my master bedroom. I had to turn off the heater at 2am as it was hot in my bedroom (in the middle of winter).
Very easy to use the dials and settings.
Took less than 30mins and my room was visibly hotter.

It smells so bad that you get headache in no time.

published

I’m using this heater for the 2nd year. It still smells bad. What a waste of money! I would not recommend it. I followed all the instruction that was mentioned in the catalog. In fact I kept the heater out in open space for 8 hrs to get rid of the smell. It was just waste of electricity.

Great heater, let down by timer.

published

Overall a great heater.
Easy to setup.
Quiet operation.
No smell after following initial use instructions.
Great functions, especially eco mode.
My only negative point is the timer function. I see that others have noted the same.
To be clear this only has a single use 24hr count down function to turn the unit off or on to its last setting. You can’t set a 24hr repeatable programme. I hoped to get around this using a smart plug/ timer but when the power is turned on the unit will go on to standby mode, rather than turn on to the last setting.
Annoyed, but will survive.

Dragon 4 TRD41500ET

Have recently bought this heater to replace a cheaper brand that after a couple of years, could not keep heat above 18 ,on highest setting.
I use it to heat a babies room of approximately 8 square metres. The room has lots of windows and a slate floor, so I realize a big ask but hoped a De Longhi would do the trick.
I am now setting it to highest setting of 28 and it also does not keep room above 18 and room still feels cold. As my grandson has respiratory problems I bought this heater as I was told it would not dry air as much as other heaters.
Should I set it to a lower setting?
Kind Regards Mel

DeLonghi Dragon 4 TRD4 Series

Details

Features

  • A chimney-style design helps the coil fins to facilitate the quick flow of hot air upwards. This can help to make a space warmer, faster.
  • A room thermostat and programmable timer up to 24 hours can be used via manually adjustable knobs.
  • Folding castor wheels allow you to move this portable heater with you, as you move to different rooms in your house.

Points of Praise

  • This Dragon 4 series of heaters warmed up rooms speedily and thoroughly, which reviewers were happy about.
  • Once a desired temperature was reached, these heaters provided a consistent level of warmth that didn't fade away.
  • This heater was often a preferred choice by parents when it came to using a heater in their children’s bedrooms. The ability to set a timer for heating, followed by an auto shut-off mechanism kicking in, was appreciated by parents for safety reasons.
  • The DeLonghi Dragon 4 series of heaters were quiet while turned on, which was regarded as a user-friendly feature by reviewers.

Points to Consider

  • The heaters were commonly reported to give off a slight ‘oily’ smell when first being used, but this usually went away after a few days.
  • The inability to program the settings so that the heater runs on a repeated daily or weekly setting was viewed as inconvenient by some reviewers.
