An affordable smart wi-fi enabled and weatherproof wall mounted patio heater that ticks a lot of boxes
Devola – 1.2kW Weatherproof Wall Mounted Weatherproof Patio Heater – DVPH1200B
Perfect for both home and commercial users this 1.2kW heater is cheap to run and one of the cheapest heaters on the market at the moment. Devola don’t seem to be struggling with the stock issues that other UK retailers are dealing with too!
This small but powerful heater will heat a room up to 12sqm, it will do a little less outside but that’s to be expected of a 1200W heater.
Bulb Life & Heating Type
These infrared bulbs don’t last forever, but we could expect the average 8,000 hours+ of operational time before needing to change the elements.
They provide infrared heat which offers direct near-instant heat to objects rather than the areas around it.
Power Settings & Specifics
This heater has 2 power settings. (600W, 1200W)
As well as customisable temperature control (5-45c), this heater also has adjustable power settings. It’s fantastic at getting the temperature right and saving money and the environment.
Suitable for ceiling, wall and gazebo hanging but bear in mind it’s not the lightest heater on the market, weighing in at 5kg make sure your mounting area can handle the weight.
The 1.2kW Devola infrared heater measures in at 77cm x 16cm x 8cm. It’s somewhat larger than other heaters in this niche but not by much.
We like the design, it’s not too glitzy but comes with all the bells and whistles under the hood. We particularly like the LED integration to show you the preset temperature, so you’re not left guessing!
Features & Extras
This is where the Devola brand of patio heaters really comes into their own. Boasting a whole host of features and extras including but not limited to: Remote control operation, child lock, body sensor, customisable temperature settings and it’s wi-fi enabled.
We’re so impressed in fact that one could argue this heater is a strong alternative to the Veito range of heaters.
Finally, this heater also comes with a 2-year guarantee – so if something does go wrong within the first few years of ownership you can rest assured that Devola will get it fixed.
Not only are these heaters suitable for indoor and outdoor operation, but they offer superior and true weatherproof operation when installed outdoors.
Solid rating 6 – complete protection from dust and touch.
Liquid rating 5 – this heater is protected from low powered water jets from all directions.
This rating makes it suitable for installation in any location. Whether in a commercial setting or residential.
We think this heater is great for both residential and commercial users due to its versatility and low cost.
With the average cost of electricity running in the region of 14.7p/kWh let’s calculate the hourly running cost for you.
Heater running costs:
Full Power (1200W) – 1.2kW x 1 hour = 1.2 kWh x 14.7p = 17.64p (per hour)
Half Power (600W) – 0.6kW x 1 hour = 0.6kWh x 14.7p = 8.82p (per hour)
Assuming we were to use this heater for 2 hours a night every night.
On full power (1.2kW or 1200W) our monthly electric bill will be £10.58
On medium power (0.6kW or 600W) our monthly electric bill will be £5.29
Of course the heater does automatically shut off when the optimum temperature has been reached, but in an outdoor setting this is rarely the case. It’s incredibly economical to run and if you’ve got a small patio or even conservatory to heat then this is an ideal patio heater.
