What are these like to run cost wise against a convector heater ?


According to this, oil is a little cheaper than convection. See grid part way down the page.

Here we go again. The "typical" oil heater is 3/4 cheaper (to run) than the "typical" convection heater because the "typical" oil heater uses 3/4 the electricity of the "typical" convection heater. If they had the same "typical" outputs their running costs would be the same :-)

No, it is not. It looks cheaper because of lower wattage

Bought. Prob won't last very long but with £10 extra for 3 year guarantee still way cheaper than a delonghi.thanks

So what is best was looking today myself?

personally if I didn't have kids I'd get a convector type but with kids running around my biggest fear was they'd knock it over and the place would be burning to the ground, didn't want it to be smoking hot

Ahhh I remember buying one of these to heat our freezing cold student house as we couldn't afford to run the fan heaters on the walls. Good times.

An electric heater is 100% efficient, they all cost the same to run.

Do these use a lot of electricity

Probably up to 1500W at a guess.

The legs will go first.

Yes, but some electric heaters have controls that can reduce excess consumption, such as thermostats, and some thermostats are more effective than others. The spec for OP Currys Logik heater has no mention of a thermostat, although it does appear to have some sort of rotary adjustment in addition to the power level switches.

32439385.jpghas a thermostat, 2 heat settings and cuts off automatically when the temperature reaches desired temp, heats up really quick so far so good, by checking my smart meter app it's cost me 12p to keep it running a whole hour on max.

Is there any websites where you could enter the wattage etc to work out cost per hour...

See what your electricity provider charges you for a kWh. Then multiply that by 1.5!

Why do oil heaters smell so much when in use?

Good advice. This will be the maximum cost, not taking into account periods when the thermostat clicks the heater off.

Granted if the room gets hotter than desired. It will have an adjustable thermostat though.

They’ve been selling daewoo ones at quality save for this price for months

POWER X TIME X MONEY

1.5KW X 1 HOUR = 1.5KILO WATT HOUR

1.5KWH X £0.14 = £0.21

For 24 hours use at 70% duty cycle

1.5x24=36

36x0.7=25.2

25.2x0.14=£3.52

£3.52 per 24hour use when full power is drawn for 70% of the time.

£3.52 x 30 days = £105.60

But that would be heavy use in my opinion.

Except an oil filled radiator stays hot for sometime after and continues to produce geat held in the oil where as a convection heater ceases to produce heat the moment it is shut off. Nice try tho genius.

And long does it take an oil filled radiator to get hot from cold?

So?

Oil filled heater dissipate heat differently and preferably IMO.. but as stated above.. regardless of personal experience of how they warm a room .. they are all 100% equally efficient.

This stuff has been worked out by geniuses..

Just based on the appearance and experience with radiators matching this type of design, I'd say probably about 10 minutes for this one.

I had a wider, larger capacity 2Kw that took a good half an hour...

and what kind of oil do we need to buy? cooking oil or 5w 30?
