This is hot...in more ways than one!! I have a similar one, cost a lot more, has only two heat settings, and is not wall mountable. Free delivery is an added bonus! Only 6,120 in stock, so be quick!!
Can someone suggest whether oil filled heater or electric convector heater is best in terms of power consumption n health?
These instantly heat the air whereas oil needs to heat the oil before it can start to radiate heat these can create dry air when used whereas oil not so much oil will carry on radiating heat until the oil finally cools I have one similar to this would buy again if it failed have tried oil & found they take too long to warm up.

It all depends what or where you want to heat for example mine has 600/900/2000 watt settings with variable thermostat control I work sometimes in my kitchen all day 3m x 3m x 2.7m high ceilings = 24.3m3 less cupboard appliance space so say 20m3 walls floors & ceilings all highly insulated with a 1.44m2 double glazed window.

I set mine on the lowest 600w but only 50% thermostat setting (and it does trip in & out on the thermostat during the hour) so lets say maximum 300watts/hour consumption it takes the temp from 14 degrees to 18 degrees in about 2 hrs so 300watts x 8 hrs = 2400watts/1000 =2.4KWh @ say £0.18p per KW so about 40-50 pence per 8 hour day. I did put a meter reader on it once hence the aforementioned calculation is not a guess.

Can you really make a 2Kw heater, pack it, ship it (from China), import it, market it and still provide a profit for manufacturer and seller at under £12? I love a bargain but very cheap mains electrical devices and other goods with the potential to kill do concern me.

I have the fan version going in my office at the moment; it has blown the fuse once for some unknown reason but has otherwise performed as it should.
Normal electric heaters are all near as makes no odds 100% efficient in terms of converting input energy to output heat. Beyond the energy efficiency criteria, they all have their advantages and disadvantages.
Decent heaters, they definately pump out the heat.
as someone else mentioned they can often blow a fuse, especially if using full power and both switches are turned on..... but no problems at all just on the single heat setting
Interestingly, it is more expensive in their promotions catalogue which I have just received!

The power consumption is about the same apart from the part that oil filled heaters maintain a level of heat once they are switched off. In terms of longevity and health. Oil filled heaters appear to last longer on average The heat produced from oil filled is less stuffy and my wife who has a few health issues much prefers it
