Electric Heating We can


●From previous page expect smart


water cylinders, ventilation and air treatment


products such as Mechanical Ventilation &


Heat Recovery to be connected to a whole-house heating and


comfort system in the near future, not


forgetting the energy source


itself like a boiler or heat pump.


Regulatory change driving innovation In the electric heating market, there is another driver which is forcing manufacturers to innovate. Lot 20 of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive was introduced in January 2018 and it sets a minimum energy efficiency standard for all ‘local’ room or space heating products – those that generate heat in the location in which they are situated. This includes electric storage heaters, panel heaters and high heat retention heaters. Products have been redesigned with intelligent features from a series of possible inclusions, all of which ‘score’ differently according to the


‘correction factor’ specified within the regulations, helping manufacturers to meet the required standards. The greatest gains to installers and their customers are from those


products which offer IoT compatibility, ensuring they can improve efficiency now and in the future through intelligent, adaptive controls and enhanced connectivity. We don’t need to stress the importance of stock availability.


Enhanced capabilities Space heating devices are not the only appliances that can benefit from IoT technology to improve home comfort. As the trend for more insulated homes continues, the value of energy efficient water heating and ventilation becomes increasingly evident. We can expect smart water cylinders, ventilation and air treatment


products such as Mechanical Ventilation & Heat Recovery to be connected to a whole-house heating and comfort system in the near future, not forgetting the energy source itself like a boiler or heat pump. The benefits – and the opportunities for wholesalers – are only set


to increase.


Exploiting opportunities Across the home, the Internet of Things is changing the way we use devices and it presents a huge opportunity for electrical wholesalers and their customers. We firmly believe control of electric heating and ventilation are defining elements of a connected home. With devices that are already wired into every room, that are capable of monitoring that environment and also can be independently controlled, Dimplex is in a prime position to deliver on the massive expecations for home IoT systems. As a manufacturer, Dimplex is set to continue innovating, but the


important thing for any forward-thinking wholesaler is to start communicating the real benefits of connected devices to its customers. One thing is for sure; the end user will be more interested in learning about how to improve home comfort and cut their energy bills, than they will be about understanding which egg goes off next.
