got 2 b heat 4 a heater! :whistling:
#3
I bought two of the 7 fins from ebuyer, (now £12.70) when they were cheap before xmas and delivery was free when the total basket was over £25, I would highly recommend.
#4
good find
but i dont think these will be cheap to run though
#5
great wee things - a bit 'tinny' but superb value. I also bought 2 ( 9fin and 7 fin) just before christmas with the free delivery thing - a lttle over 25 quid for both delivered.

Just make sure you build them the right way up ! ! really !! There's a long thread from the previous post before christmas with folks concerened over the safety of these. [COLOR="Blue"]I am 99% SURE[/COLOR] that the concerens were because heaters weren't properly built up. Thats what I did. (ahhemm):whistling: All the evident 'probelems were exactly what I experienced when I built the first one wrong... !:oops:

ref post 214 on this thread.

Do these things cost a lot to run?
banned#7
I thought oil filled radiators were cheap to run in comparison with most other forms of heater (convection, etc)...
#8
Cost of running any sort of heating has gone up! dont matter what you get its going to cost big bucks!

no, oil heaters can consume upwards of 8 units per hour ( a 500KW radiator), based on typical price of say 7-8p per unit, your looking at around 64p a hour, cheapest way to heat your house is by your primary heating system, beats me sometimes why people turn radiators off in rooms and use these instead, way more expensive to run

They are actually cheaper than Gas so I have found, they are also a lot easier to control and if you have enough of them you can control heat in various rooms rather than tinkering with Radiators and Thermostats. However a word of warning: I have found that its best to stick with 'named' brands regarding Oil filled rads as the cheaper one's do not last 5 minutes. I wouldn't buy one of these, I would rather put a bit extra to the price and buy a Dimplex who are the Rolls Royce of these without a doubt.
#11
I would estimate a 1000W (1Kw) heater left on for 1 hr would cost about 20p in electric (1Kw Hr), but will depend on the elecricity company and tariff you are on. So about 20p per hour for each 1Kw used.
#12
We have had this discussion before. Most of these electric powered heaters turn electricity directly into heat so they all cost the same to run in terms of heat per amount of electricity. However obviously an electric bar heater will heat up faster and also cool down faster. An oil heater will heat up slowly but keep heating longer after being turned off. Less likely to burn things too. Night storage heaters use cheap off peak electricity and store the heat in bricks inside them and slowly release it during the day thus letting you transfer cheap night power to the day.

Non electric heat sources like boilers are a different case as their cost is dictated by their fuel be it it gas, oil or coal/wood or whatever.

As ever best cheap thing is to insulate and stop drafts. Easy to close door, put snake along bottom and put bluetack/tape over leaky windows.
#13
Bought a bigger one just before Xmas from ebuyer and it stopped working last week! Not worth returning due to postage so has gone to the tip. I've bought a few cheapo oil heaters in the past and they always pack up. You'd think I'd have learnt my lesson with the little blighters. Anyway, my advice is, if you're gonna buy one, get it from a local shop so you can take it back when it does conk out.
#14
I also bought 2 before Christmas and 1 packed up yesterday so I also would advise against buying from here and buy local
#15
With the thermostat on max they will use 1 Kw/hour hence cost a maximum or 10-12p per hour use. Use mine in the bedroom at night on economy seven. It's silent and doesn't emit light as a halogen heater would, so i can sleep ok with it switched on.

How on earth can you assemble this wrong? lol

Another pseudo-expert spouting completely unresearched rubbish! If you're going to offer advice, at least have the decency to make sure it's correct.

1 "unit" = 1kWh (1000watts). These are 1000watt radiators. They use no more than 1 unit per hour.
So how can a 1000watt radiator "consume upwards of 8 units per hour"? Next you mention "a 500KW radiator". WTF? That's 500,000 watts!!!!! Come on lad, get a grip!

when its 2am and you've been working 14 hour shifts - it's very easy to put the wheels on the top and not notice that the thermostat dial is upside down. Result is (because these are not totally filled with oil) heating element is on the top with no oil round it - thanks to gravity - so it over heats and burns the paint off the unit and can cause it to deform and no doubt burst if left long enough. (winner of the world '[COLOR="Blue"]AND[/COLOR]' record there )

Trust me - it can be done, I am living proof and I consider myself reasonably intelligent. (now there's a debate...) :p
#19
I also bought two of the larger ones before xmas, both of them lasted just over 1 month. Packed in within 2 days of each other. Great while they lasted, and did the job while our heating was fixed. If I had invested more though I would still have two working heaters to use again or at least make some money on.
#20
Great price and worth buying in case the central heating goes kaput. If you're unlucky enough to have a Potterton Suprima fitted with a dodgy pcb this should read 'when the central heating goes kaput' (Google Potterton pcb so see what I mean).
#21
got 2 of these from eBuyer (cost 12.50 then) and I am very impressed with them for the price. In my humble opinion, you cannot go wrong at this price. Hot deal!
#22
hmm gives me an excuse to buy something for £41 from ebuyer!
#23
I got too before christmas 11 fin versions. Touch wood both are still ghoing strong. I tried this at my sisters house who has card meter. Worked out to about 12p per hour, that was worked out with nothing else switched on just the heater. Well worth it. Warms room up very quickley everytime. I use mine when its really cold along side rads to keep baby warm.

If the 11 fin come round cheap again willbuy couple more.

I bet they won't last as long as my Dimplex one's. You pay for what you get these days and I wouldn't touch one of those with a barge pole. My mate had two similiar one's from eBuyer, one started smoking and the other started pi55ing oil out everywhere. So no thanks!

WOW - half a megawatt - that's some serious heating!

Read further into this. hunderds of people bought these, then returned them inclucing myself.

Mine caught fire too, they seem to be very unsafe!!![/CENTER]
#27
They work fine. But it's very important not to operate them upside down. Somebody did this and posted all over saying they set his house on fire and was never heard of anymore, but that was because he's made it run upside down. I think there is a safety warning in the package - do not operate this heater upside down.
#28
yup - I put mine on upside down too - it seems quite a few of us did.

It caught fire!

I brought two - they both went back & I got one from B&Q instead.

worto.

edit - oh & there was no safety notice in mine but mine was missing the instructions anyway.
#29
On a label stuck to the heater it said.......NWOD EDISPU ESU TON OD................and mine caught light also
#30
I bought two of the 2500kw ones before xmas from ebuyer - both have now stopped working - delivery driver that picked them up said he can guarantee if he delivers something from ebuyer he ends up collecting it again within the month - just hassle and not worth a penny! I will not be buying from ebuyer again.

Hi i did the same b4 xmas and mine died 10 days after, emailed ebuyer ask them to pick it up as will cost you too much.
they got parcel force 2 pick it up and i got full refund.:thumbsup:

got new 1 from b&q working a treat, cya unrealuk :)
#32
DO NOT BUY.
They EXPLODE.

I purchased five for my office - the last two were returned last week.

This is not a bargain - they fail - they are not safe.
#33
I got two of these and the first one set on fire nearly smoked the house out so sent them back stay away from them i say :x
#34
Got the 2.5KW one of these just before christmas, they actually don't cost loads to run.

We've got the white meter package and it costs 10.6p per Kwh during the day and about 4.7p at night so that would mean this costs about 26p during the day and about 14p at night if it was constantly using power, the thermostate turns it off and on though so its about half those figures
#35
can somebody please confirm which way is upside down?!
e.g. should the power cable be at the bottom.

this is a very serious issue and merely the fact that this can be happen is a serious design error imho.

i doubt these meet the relevant british standard? what's going on here?

(i have been using one for 2 weeks with no issue so far so I think i must have done it right)
#36
How can people confuse the upside down thing anyway, it's pretty obvious because the controls would be the wrong way round if you done that if you done that + the power lead is deffinatly not supposed to come out the top :roll:

I agree with the above as i also bought two 11fin heaters just before x-mas and currently demanding a refund, which ebuyer isnt trying to resolve. Ebuyer is definatley not a place i wish to buy as my experience with them has been bad. You have to wait on the phone lines for 30 minutes and when you finally do speak to someone they wont show you any form of customer service and try to fob you off. Good luck to the rest of you who wishes to shop with this company.
