Having already covered the Delonghi Bambino TRN0505M, which is a great little radiator for small rooms, we have decided to cover the Delonghi Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T Oil Filled Radiator as it is the best radiator in the Dragon radiator range.
DeLonghi is a great brand name which produces quality products and my experiences with DeLonghi sales agents has been positive.
As an aside we are great fans of Delonghi dehumidifiers in particular the Delonghi Dem 10 which we personally own.
The Delonghi Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T comes with a host of great features which makes this a very popular seller on Amazon.
As usual with our radiator reviews we will lay this review out in bullet point format for easy perusal.
- ‘Super Advanced Chimney Effect’ heats rooms faster than ordinary oil filler radiators

Super Advanced Chimney Effect
What sets the Delonghi Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T apart from the competition is a superb feature called the ‘Super Advanced Chimney Effect’. Essentially what this allows the radiator to do is to give a quick and effective heating solution.
Cold air gets pulled through the hottest part of the radiator and is then accelerated through the hot vents. It provides a fast flow of hot air that heats the room quickly.
Enlarged Fin Shape
In conjunction with the ‘Super Advanced Chimney Effect’ and enlarged fin shape provides an increased ‘chimney’ or ‘convective’ effect for faster hot air flow.
A new enlarged battery design provides a 25% larger radiant surface for better, and faster, air flow.
Therefore the Delonghi Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T heats rooms faster than ordinary oil filled radiators.
The adjustable thermostat allows you to regulate the room temperature. This feature is handy to prevent the room from getting too dry or too hot.
3 Heat Settings
The Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T features 3 heat settings allowing you to save energy were needed.
24 Hour Timer
The 24 hour timer also allows you to save energy by only having the radiator on at certain periods.
The dial features pins at every 10 minutes so you can set the 1025T to turn ‘on’ and ‘off’ many times during 24 hours.
According to De’Longhi the Dragon-4 TRD4 1025T is powerful enough to heat rooms up to 75m².
- Anti-Frost Device
- Over-heat Protection
- Caster wheels (Handy as unit weighs 18kg)
- Carry Handle
