1.2KW Bathroom / Radiant Heater ideal for shed / garage £6.50 @ Homebase Instore

LocalFound 20th Jan
Picked up 2 of these today.

Ideal for shed or garage above work bench etc to give you a little bit of warmth when its cold out there.

Bathroom rated so will be fine in shed/garage.

Usually around £25+ so I thought it was a bargain.

Like with most homebase deals currently, it wasnt a yellow tag. It was a normal white label showing £6.50

1.2 kilowatts
is that average or above normal kilowatts other heaters use?

The amount of power used will be directly proportional to the amount of heat it puts out. The amount of power you want is down to size of the room, how well insulated it is, and how warm you want it.

It does says it has two heat settings, so that will be full power and something less than full power. I assume they don't mean on and off as the two settings

About 99% efficient though. So really good in that respect

These are the ones which fall into the bath in horror movies.

But nowhere near cost-efficient as gas fired boiler + radiator

Depends I guess. If you were like Hitler with your trvs probably not.....

If you use it to heat a room and keep it warm,that’s true.
If you want to put some heat in a room while you are there for a short period of time then this wins.
The Infrared heat is instant if you are working in its path. So ideal to aim across a bench in a shed or near working area in a garage.
Fantastic buy. Great find. Heat from me my local Homebase has 17 so I will pop down when the snow stops it’s quite heavy hear in Scotland we have 10 inches of snow I tried to walk my six months old dog yesterday and the snow is a inch above her head. Thanks again xx
Picked 2 up today. Looks like this is their normal price though but still useful to have in the garage
was £ 19,95 in my local homebase (Washington) but checked price and came up as
£6.50, so bought two for my garage workshop, instant heat just for as long as I need it

I'd say 100% efficent.
Do these need to be wired in please?

You loose 1% in light and other internal losses.


But electric heaters are generally known to be 100% efficient...... but I was covering off the smart arse who would mention the light and the wire resistance 😊
