Heating The Unheated Room (Part 3)

Finally Alexander's bedroom has heat! Actually, the Dimplex LPC heater has been installed and working for well over one month now, it has just taken me this time to finally write about it! The Dimplex LPC looks fantastic against the tall original baseboards, and it's slim format is unobtrusive, unlike traditional front vented baseboard heaters.
The Dimplex LPC heater, 24 inches wide, 750 watts, located centered beneath the window in Alexanders bedroom.
A close up, the right hand end of the heater contains the controls, and a small LCD readout display. Wiring can be done from either side, as there is wire routing from the left to the right side where the connections are made.

Wall box which will contain the remote control unit. The remote is a controller only, and does not contain a thermostat, which is located in the heater itself, together with the display.

The remote unit, installed temporarily in a dummy box. The wall switch for the room will contain a switch controlling a duplex receptacle, a master ceiling fan/light switch (pictured), and the LPC remote control unit.

  1. I was going to replace my old baseboard heaters with the new Dimplex LPC (well. The one in the kitchen first). The old ones are controlled by wall mounted low voltage Chromolox thermostats ...which you can't purchase anymore. But, I was wondering about the fact that the Dimplex can only be connected on the right side because that is where the built in thermostat is. But, I notice you say it can be done from either side. Could you explain. My old unit is connected on the left and I wasn't particularly looking forward to running new wire so I could reach the right side of the unit. Thanks.
