Hi are these cheaper to run than the oil filled type heater? Thanks


Energy used is the same on any type of heater - the difference is an oil filled heater retains some heat in the oil filled radiator fins when it's not consuming electricity (ie when a thermostat shuts it off) whereas this convector pretty much only provides heat when it's turned on (consuming electricity)...once it's off (or thermostat shuts it off) there's little heat left in the device itself

Same with those little fan heaters, they consume 2Kw when running but as soon as they're off there's little residual heat so you need them on more....but they heat up a room faster.

I use oil filled at work and they're slower to warm a room up but once warmed up they're a bit more steady in heat flow once their thermostat kicks into play, while they're not burning electricity they're still giving out some heat so the room doesn't go hot-cold-hot-cold etc

have some heat
Thank you ordered two!
Great find, just what I needed!

I always find that question a bit strange as both use electricity. I don't believe anyone has invented a way to get more out of a Kilowatt using a different type of heater. Just some are more controllable using timers and thermostats.

Is it more economical to buy 2-3 of these and run them in individual rooms as and when required instead of heating whole house with gas/central heating '

I have a fairly new build (2004) three story semi.
Are most of these type of heaters 2Kw because I'm sure my mother has one and it's 3 kilowatts

No, it's got to be more economical to use electric storage heaters that are optimised for home heating.... but storage heaters tend to be hard to control as they heat up bricks inside them which then radiates heat over the course of the day,

These convector heaters are a cheap (to buy) and easy to use heater but I wouldn't want to use them as a full house heating solution....other than in an emergency.

Your existing gas central heating surely has the ability to turn off a radiator in each room if it's not required? - such as a thermostatic valve on each rad?

Probably some EU directive like reducing vacuum cleaner power etc.
Must be worth a punt at a tenner even for use in garage .Amazing how you can buy these in and deliver for a tenner and still make money.
Heat added

Think it's more of a safety thing, in the past some appliances were 3kw, eg dishwashers and washing machines too, but 3kw is pretty much the limit for a 13amp plug, so any slightly dodgy wiring or connections could lead to overheating issues and fire risk, eg a lot of extension leads are only 10amp. Not to mention if 2x 3kwh appliances were plugged into a double socket, it is a fire risk. Never underestimate the capacity for humans to do silly things with electricity....
Don't forget you can borrow these from the fire brigade in Cleveland if you don't want to buy them. It's part of the winter warmth strategy and could be nationwide if you check
hot hot hot spot. ta
We use one of these, identical but branded differently in our conservatory. Surprisingly it puts a Dyson fan heater costing 30x as much to shame and keeps the conservatory comfortable even when its subzero outside.
Thank you op. Just what we needed.
This is certainly a bargain and handy to have for heating a cold room or to have if the central heating fails. Just don't let people dry clothes on top of it as they tend to overheat and melt the plastics, burn the clothes and lord knows what else.
Thank you. Just ordered
does anyone have the fan/turbo model, or one with the timer?

Does the timer make a sound?
many plug-in 24hr timers make a constant ticking sound as the turn slowly, that can be quite loud.

You can get digital plug in timers with no moving parts except possibly a relay, a click when it turns on and a click when it turns off.

I have in my office and hardly ever notice it (but then the noise of the fan tends to drown it out).
thanks.
yes it also has a fan, but I hope to be able to switch that off as required.
Quite literally HOT!

If you have economy 7 tariffs, storage heaters are cheaper per kw but seem to cost a fortune and are awful to control.

Not for much longer, soon be able to have a heater that mimics a dwarf star and a vacuum with more suction than a black hole

Yes, but only because they are using a cheaper rate of electricity, only available at night, to heat the radiator. Very difficult to control the input/output of these.

Let's leave - just in case that's true (which it isn't!)

Vacuum cleaners reduced power is true as are other reduced power items so just a guess and only said in a half serious manner. Happy to not get into some bitter vindictive pointless knob waving argument as so often happens on this site

Thanks ordered
thank,s Hoppi,got 2 .pain to register, , . in address. used code warm20 not WARM20 ,
£22 in screwfix.com
Arrived today .great service .Belting little heater and pure bargain for a tenner.
Hi did anyone have a problem fitting the four screws to the feet of the heater?
how much was shipping?
I cannot believe it has already arrived via UPS, amazing! Even Amazon have a minimum order and don't do next day and certainly don't use a company the quality of UPS!

Also I think the timer is almost silent and the fan very quiet
Love it!

Didnt really have a problem, but did think it strange there were 4 holes in each foot but only 4 short screws, I just put them in diagonally, 2 in each foot
