UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--De’Longhi, the leading international brand in portable heating and cooling, today announces four new additions to its home comfort product portfolio. The brand that decades ago originated its entire family business in home comfort expertise in Treviso, Italy now debuts the NEW Pinguino Ex Series Portable Air Conditioner, NEW HSX Slim Style Full Room Panel Heater, NEW Full Room Radiant Heater, NEW Capsule SafeHeat Compact Ceramic Heater and a NEW Premium Compact Dehumidifier at the 2017 International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, Illinois from March 18-21.
With so many options on the market today, consumers may be confused about what to look for in a portable heater or air conditioner. Even though shoppers avoid high energy usage, expensive or loud machines and products they deem unsafe – they often are not aware of the technologies available to them offering different kinds of temperature disbursement and control. With its new 2017 product launches in home comfort, De’Longhi is bringing its strongest and most diverse offering to market based on real consumer insights to educate shoppers on the helpful technologies that will make their home safe, energy efficient, and most of all comfortable.
The brand’s history in the category dates back to the ‘70s and 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 products that meet their needs.
“As technology becomes more advanced, families have more options when it comes to home comfort – with factors like noise, money, energy usage and design weighing heavy.” said Mike Prager, De’Longhi Group NA’s President and CEO. “This year De’Longhi is presenting our most diverse portfolio of choices to continue our tradition of understanding our consumers’ needs and incorporating their feedback into our designs and innovations to create a happier, healthier and more comfortable home.”
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average household spends more than $2,200 a year on energy bills, with nearly half of this going to heating and cooling costs. With such an expense, De’Longhi’s new comfort products are a diverse range of products that address the changing needs of today’s home owner and renter, such as safety, mobility between rooms, noise control and energy savings.
The latest debut to the popular Pinguino line, the De’Longhi Pinguino EX Series Portable Air Conditioner, offers an updated modern design. It features an air flow direction control which allows the air flow to be directed to any part of the room you choose. The new front-facing display allows users to easily see changes when operating the full function remote; the display will dim automatically so it is less distractive.
The De’Longhi Pinguino EX Series portable air conditioner is a powerful 14,000 BTU, 3-in-1 unit that cools, dehumidifies, and offers a fan option with three speeds. The included BioSilver air filter traps dust and particles and prevents mold, mildew and bacteria from growing on the filter, keeping unwanted odors out of the room.
The Pinguino Ex Series also features No Drip Technology, which is an auto evaporation function that prevents leaks. 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 Ex Series Portable Air Conditioner, model PACEX140ES, will be available in April 2017 with a retail price of $599.95.
The De’Longhi HSX Slim Style Full Room Panel Heater is a stylish approach to fast, full-room heat. The ultra slim panel heater features a 3-inch design with a sleek glossy white finish and 1500W heating power. Following on the heels of the successful launch of the HCX9115E Slim Style digital panel heater, De’Longhi’s new model offers a smaller footprint and mechanical controls. The uniquely slim design is perfect for dining rooms and entertainment spaces that need to be heated quickly and efficiently, while blending in nicely with modern home decor. Additionally, it is easily wall mountable with the included install kit.

The easy to use sensor touch controls combined with the various draining options for collected water, choose to empty the tank or drain directly into a sink, make care and maintenance simple.
