Introducing More Innovations for the Ultimate at-Home Level of Comfort No Matter the Season
UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., March 16, 2016 /CNW/ -- De'Longhi, the leading international brand in portable heating, introduces five new additions to the home environment portfolio, including the Pinguino Smart Portable Air Conditioner, Radia S Digital Radiant Heater, SafeHeat Ceramic Heaters with Silent System and Heat Badge in both Personal and Tower models, as well as a Premium Compact Dehumidifier.
In developing its new 2016 products, De'Longhi leveraged its deep history in the small appliance and personal heating and cooling space to deliver its strongest offerings to date. The brand's history in the category is established by its genuine connection to its consumers – investing time and resources into listening to them and gathering their feedback – in order to produce heating and cooling devices that meet their needs.
In recent years, consumers shared that loud noise levels, energy usage, mobility and accessibility of devices topped their list of concerns and complaints around heating and cooling products. Additionally, they care most about the power levels and capacity of products, their safety and efficiency, as well as design. To introduce its latest additions to the home environment portfolio, De'Longhi has once again leaned on consumer insight to provide the next wave of home comfort and heating trends and solutions.
"As a global leader in the home comfort category, De'Longhi continues to focus on bringing meaningful, premium innovations to the market, while also incorporating the latest innovations to make lives easier – like our new app-controlled smart portable air conditioner with Wi-Fi connectivity," said Mike Prager, De'Longhi Group NA's President and CEO. "We continue to invest in insights and research that help us to get even closer to the needs of North American consumers, resulting in products that help create a comfortable and healthy home environment, matched with distinctive and attractive design that people are proud to use in their homes."
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating and cooling account for approximately 48% of the energy use in a typical U.S. home, making it the largest and most constant energy expense for most homes. De'Longhi's new comfort products address the changing needs of today's home owner and renter, such as mobility between rooms, noise control and energy savings.
The latest iteration of the popular Pinguino line, the Pinguino Smart Portable Air Conditioner, is a smart level of comfort built for the busy individual – allowing users to control all functions via a mobile app. Cooling is easy and on demand with the new Pinguino Smart; whether on the go or in another room of your home, you can simply control all the functions such as on/off, thermostat setting, timer, even change modes from cool to dehumidify or fan only, anytime, anywhere. The easy-to-use app with user-friendly interface creates a powerful, cooling experience right at your fingertips.
The De'Longhi Pinguino Smart is a 14,000 BTU, 4-in-1 portable air conditioner that cools, dehumidifies, heats and offers fan only with three speeds. The unique Whisper Cool technology offers a quiet cool, making it ideal for bedrooms and living rooms. With a simple, no tools required setup that takes only minutes and patented castor wheels, De'Longhi portable air conditioners are ideal for moving from room to room, offering an energy savings by cooling only the room you are in.
The Pinguino Smart features No Drip Technology and has an auto evaporation function preventing leakage in the home, no matter what room it is used in. The full-function remote and easy to use electronic controls make it convenient to change functions and settings with ease.
The Pinguino Smart Portable Air Conditioner will be available this summer with a retail price of $899.95.
The De'Longhi Radia S Digital Heater is a great solution for consumers concerned with heating capacity and efficiency. This portable radiant heater provides a gentle full room heat with no hot or cool spots.
With patented Thermal Slots and 1500 watts of heating power, the Radia S maximizes heat flow that takes the chill out of the coldest room while maintaining a low-surface temperature. Soft, convection heating controlled by three power settings feels just like a furnace, but with simple room to room portability, providing even, gentle heat throughout the any room. The additional ECO plus function can help save on energy by automatically adjusting heat and power settings for the most comfortable and cost-effective warmth.
Bring heat and comfort wherever you are in your home; the Radia S Digital Heater features patented, pre-assembled smart snap wheels that allow room-to-room mobility and accessibility in the house. No matter what room you place the Radia S, peace of mind is provided by the SafeHeat functions and special anti-frost setting, which automatically turns the heater on if the room drops below a pre-set temperature. Crafted with a durable, rust-resistant metal, Radia S has permanently-sealed, pure diathermic oil that is leak-free and never needs to be refilled.
The Radia S Digital Heater will be available in August 2016 with a retail price of $139.95.
For consumers worried about noisy fans and heaters, De'Longhi's new line of SafeHeat Ceramic Heaters with Silent System and Heat Badge provide a soothing, quiet heating experience. Both the personal and tower models contain powerful, yet quiet warming capabilities perfect for full coverage of small to large room sizes.
Created with an all-new Silent System technology, the new De'Longhi ceramic heaters operate at just 40 dBA with over 50% less noise, improving the in-home relaxation experience. The Instant Heat feature allows both 1,500-watt heaters to rapidly heat up in seconds, providing instant, focused heat with oscillation to warm up for full space coverage. The digital control panel offers three-heat settings and a fan only option for summer ventilation.
The De'Longhi SafeHeat Ceramic Heaters with Silent System and Heat Badge are equipped with an ECO energy function, safety thermal cut off and anti-freezing setting, to address consumer concerns of overheating and high energy bills. The unique Heat Badge Indicator offers peace of mind in a household with children, alerting parents to when the heater has warmed up to its ideal temperature and is therefore hot to the touch.
The Personal ceramic heater model is compact in size making it ideal for offices and small rooms; the 24" Tower ceramic heater model is ideal for medium and large spaces. Both models will be available in August 2016. The Personal Ceramic Heater and Tower Ceramic Heater will retail at $89.95 and $99.95, respectively.
For today's modern home owner or renter, air quality is important. De'Longhi's new Premium Compact Dehumidifier is ideal for laundry rooms and bathrooms, as well boats and RVs. It offers air filtration by eliminating dust particles and odors in moist, compact spaces. This compact dehumidifier can even help with drying clothes and eliminating the odors from damp wash loads.
The new De'Longhi premium compact dehumidifier features an auto restart, which allows users to leave the unit on for continuous periods of time, and sensor touch controls that respond to your preferences, allowing you to customize your experience. The dehumidifier offers a couple options for emptying the collected water; you can use either tank or drain options.
