Contacting Us

If you have a query or question about anything, you can contact us in the following ways:

  • If you haven't yet created an account at our shop, please contact us by using the 'Contact Us' form (on the menu above) or by emailing sales(at) We aim to reply to all emails as soon as possible - usually within the hour if we receive your email during the working day.
  • If your question is about an order you've already made, it would help us if you could use the messaging system in the customer area - once you've logged in, click on 'My Orders' and then click on the order number you have a query about. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter your message in the box at the bottom and send it. This keeps both your messages and our replies attached to the order to which they relate so we can both review them more easily.

Items paid for by credit card or debit card will generally be dispatched on the same or next working day.

Apologies for the increase in postage costs - this is entirely and solely due to Royal Mail's dramatic price increases / size decreases (effective 2nd April 2013) which have more than doubled the cost of sending most parcels via Royal Mail, especially longer ones.

Only the smallest size of heater tube (18"/45cm) and 1x 24"/60cm heater can now be sent by First or Second Class post and should arrive within 2 to 3 working days after dispatch.

The two largest sizes of tube (36"/90cm and 48"/120cm) and more than 1x 24"/60cm heater can now only be sent by ParcelForce and should arrive within 2 to 3 working days after dispatch (ParcelForce does not deliver on Saturdays).

Our shop software isn't currently able to distinguish between the different lengths of heater on checkout, and so all postage rates will be available to choose from. If you accidentally choose 1st or 2nd class postage on either of the three larger sizes of heater tubes (more than 1x 24", or the 36" or 48" sizes) they will have to be sent via ParcelForce instead. This also applies if you order a mixture of small and large sizes - the largest length in your order will determine the postal service used. If this happens we will contact you to obtain your authorisation to charge your card for the extra postage to send by ParcelForce, or you may cancel your order and we'll refund whatever you've paid.

You will receive a confirmation email when your order has been received, and a further confirmation email when your order is dispatched.

Delivery costs are shown in the mini cart displayed top-left of the shop, when you click on your cart, and at checkout.

If you haven't received your parcel within the expected timeframe and may have been out when delivery was attempted, please check your tracking number and also check with your local Royal Mail delivery office / ParcelForce depot to see if your parcel is waiting for you there.

Both Royal Mail and ParcelForce should leave a 'While you were out...' card if they receive no reply, but sometimes don't, or the card gets mixed up with junk mail and accidentally thrown away. Items will be returned to us by Royal Mail if not collected after a number of weeks. If this happens we will contact you. If your parcel is returned to us and you wish us to re-send it an additional postage and packing charge will apply. Alternatively (if the products are returned to us by Royal Mail in a re-sellable condition) you can choose to cancel your order and we will refund the purchase price of the items to your card. Postage and packing will not be refunded.

Please note that all parcels will require a signature on delivery and cannot be left in the porch, shed or round the back, etc. Please make sure someone will be in at the delivery address (or nominate a neighbour) to sign for it.

Customers outside of the UK (Airmail Restrictions)

We can sometimes send Dampp-Chaser heater tubes to customers outside of the UK, providing their mains voltage is appropriate (220v - 240v, 50Hz), although you would need to replace the UK 3-pin plug with one suitable for your country's electrical sockets. Due to length and weight restrictions on airmail services (60cm length and 2kg weight per parcel), please contact us with your requirements and ask for a carrier (UPS) quotation first. We can only send the 18" and 24" heaters abroad, experience has shown us that the larger sizes - 36" and 48" - will get bent/damaged/broken in transit. The shipping estimates during checkout are based on one heater per cardboard shipping tube. We can sometimes repack the heaters so several can fit in one cardboard tube, and maybe also remove the UK 3-pin plugs if you don't need them. This can save weight and shipping cost. If the postage is less once re-packed, we'll refund anything over £1 back to your card once shipped. Any customs duty or taxes payable when the goods enter your country are your responsibility, so please check this with your customs authority before ordering.

Please Note: If you have not received any emails from us (and perhaps you haven't received account creation or order confirmation emails either) and you have given us a free email account address to contact you by (such as Hotmail or Yahoo) please make sure that mail we have sent to you has not been treated as spam and put in the 'trash' or 'junk mail' folder by your email provider.
