Crown 2kw fan heater £4.98 @ Morrisons

ChetChet

I didn't buy this as I don't need one but Morrisons had a 2kw Crown fan heater for just under a fiver (either £4.97 or £4.98)

Apologies for the vagueness but its a cracking deal

Looked exactly like the one in the photo but I don't have a model number

    Yes they are stupidly expensive. I use an oil filled myself which appears to be much more efficient

    Still thought i'd post this as ive never seen a 2kw one for under a fiver but totally agree - only buy electric heater if you know how expensive it will be in the long run

    Oil filled need to be on for ages before you get any benefit of them being on, fan heaters are instant heat which is handy to have on in the mornings while getting ready for work.

    2KW fan heater costs about 18p an hour to run, if i remember rightly?

    So a 2KW oil filled will cost the same, only it will take a lot longer to get warm.

    Will be more like 25p an hour based on unit prices I've found recently. Which would equate to £90/year @ 1 hour each day. Not a cheap way to heat your house!!

    worth picking up if only for using in emergencies

    I have one, and for quick heat, it's spot on.

    Very noisy, though. (It's a few years old, but the exact same model.) :/

    I am on night rate electricity, between 0030hrs and 0730hrs this heater costs about 7p per hour to run on full (2kW). since I have to be at work by 6am, a heater like this provides a fast, good roomful of heat safely on a timeswitch when I need it for a reasonable rate - certainly better than switching the central heating on - everyone else in my house is sensibly asleep when I get out of bed.

    Buy this and stick it in the footwell of your car, switch it on and connect to an extension lead. On a frosty morning five minutes before you need your car switch on the heater from the comfort of your house. No scraping and a nice warm car when you drag yourself outside!

    A radiant halogen heater is still about a third of the cost of a fan heater - you could have that on a 400w setting for the same time as this and provide the same heating effect. :3

    think i might try cling film to insulate the windows to help conserve heat....anyone tried this?

    Would this be safe enough for camping?

    I used B&Q's film insulation (not exactly cling film) last year and its quite effective, its a 2 man job to put it on the window but kept the drafts down. I was thinking of getting it again this year.

    thanks :)

    i cant find a cling film roll wide enough to cover the window in one pass. I know the idea is to create a tight seal but do you reckon 2 i could use to sheets taught and then tape in the middle and further taught (using hair dryer)...?

    wonder if that would work...

    I used the Wickes film insulation. Seems to be working quite well - I even put two large sheets of it over two entire large sash windows, which stops the draughts if nothing else - we hardly ever open them anyway.

    I wouldn't say it's a two man job - I did all the windows (including the two large sash windows) by myself. My method is to expose a little of the double sided sticky tape in the centre of each side of the window, so you end up with a couple of inches of exposed sticky tape at the N, S, E & W compass points. Then you stick the film to the N point, stretch it down to the S point, then E and W. Now the film is held in place you can expose the rest of the sticky tape and finish attaching the film one corner at a time, keeping the film well stretched. It should already be pretty well stretched if you use this method, so you won't need to heat it a lot with the hairdryer.

    Are you seriously going to use cling film? I really can't see that working, and even if it does I can't see it looking very good. I'd shell out a little bit more for something that's actually designed for the job.

    I've just come out of grimsby morrisons, can't see any heaters for a fiver. They have the halogen ones for 10 which is about standard, and oil filled for 25.
    On the clingfilm debate, which is perhaps off-topic, I have full upvc triple glazing in my house and its brilliant. Cost barely more than double glazing, too.

    How can 400w be the same as a 2kw heat source?

    It is NOT more efficient. It is EXACTLY THE SAME efficiency as a fan heater or any other type of electric heater and therefore will cost ABSOLUTELY THE SAME AMOUNT TO RUN FOR A GIVEN HEAT OUTPUT. The only way you can cheat is to use storage heaters on Economy 7.

    Sorry to shout, but they don't seem to teach physics in school nowadays.
