The Richmond DPL is a programmable, high quality low profile aluminium radiator ideal for heating areas such as conservatories and under low windows throughout the home. It is easy-to-install with Ducasa’s patented and incredibly strong Quick-Fit wall brackets. the Richmond is fitted with simple-to-use electronic controls and a silent ‘Triac’ digital thermostat accurate to 0.2°c.
The LCD screen indicates the set temperature, mode of operation and programme settings together with the time and day.
The Richmond can be programmed to heat at either your desired comfort temperature, or at your desired set-back temperature for reduced running costs. Using the radiator in manual mode requires just the click of a button.
Programming can be set to use the energy efficient Adaptive Eco-Start feature, which calculates the heat loss of a room and automatically varies the time the heater on switches on – this means your room is warm at the time you say rather than before, therefore taking the guesswork out of programming.
To round up the energy saving features the Richmond incorporates ‘open window’ sensor, which automatically switches off the heater when a sudden drop of temperature is detected and the on screen Eco-Bar indicates how much energy will be used.

To ensure your conservatory is warm and comfortable all year round it is important to fit the correct size and number of heaters.
With a newly built conservatory, it may be possible to calculate the heat loss with U-values which are a measure of insulation and then calculate the wattage required, however it is still necessary to decide the best place to install your heaters.
As most people do not have the U-values of their conservatories we have put together the following guidelines to help you decide which heater to buy.
First work out the size of your conservatory by measuring the length and width then multiply the two numbers.
When you know the size, simply choose the box below which best describes your conservatory and multiple the size by the wattage required.
Example: 11.1m2 x 90w (new conservatory) = 999w
Next choose the heater model and the wattage which best suits your requirements. It’s unlikely our heater wattages will match your requirements exactly, so always best to choose the next size up. All our heaters have thermostats which will switch off the heater when the room is warm enough, so running costs won’t increase.
Still unsure what size or model of heater to choose? No problem - call the team at Conservatory Heating - a family business with over a decades experience and here to offer friendly, free and honest advice.
