was able to add it myself, thanks..
That's one seriously loud heater.
good find op, heat added
can anybody let me know how much this would cost to run per hour? I would only have it on for maximum 1 hour each evening so I could then work out the electricity bill for the quarter
depends on your rate but about 26p per hour
Depends what rate you are charged per kw
From google
Energy input (kW) x pence per kWh= running cost.
For example a 2kW fan heater run continuously (without stopping) for 1 hour would be:
2kW x 14p/kWh = 28 pence per hour.
I know the oil filled ones are a big jump up in price than this but they hold the heat better i think.
I have one of these & although they can blast out heat quite quickly I found the fan quite loud & the construction a bit flimsy. Having said that we use occasionally in the front porch & I paid more than £13 so heat added for the post

Have 2 of these up loft that we kept from a previous heating breakdown.

They dont have a fan. Its a convection heater so warm air rises pulling cold air into the element.

Great little heaters, will warm a room in no time.
Also has a thermostat so will cut in and out to maintain room temperature and save energy.

About 28p per hour if set at max which would be a little uncomfortable.

Real usage would be less if using the thermostat and a 50% duty cycle over the hour would be possible.
Like giving a donkey ( electricity company ) strawberry's - not to be confused with your local donkey oO

Extra heat added
For those who can't get to a Home Bargains or can't find stock, looks like the same thing is on Amazon for £13.47 delivered. Unfortunately not prime.

If you have a Clas Ohlson nearby,pay a bit extra and get this one with a fan built in.Heats the room much quicker and has a 2 years guarantee

Thank you, that's not bad at all then is it 28p per hour as I will only have it on for max 1 hour then use central heating as well I understand central heating is cheaper and better but as causes dry skin therefore using convector heater as well

thanks.. I was worried about the cost too.. I only got it for my daughters room. Half an hour in the morning when she is getting up for school and it does the job brilliantly...
It's deffo more than 28p per hour. I had one of these as my hallway as was always cold and was more like 40 to 60p depending on how hot I had it. I took it back and bought a more expensive one that is more economical.

You must be factoring in more than just the heater with that cost, or your on a terrible rate.
40 to 60p would mean your paying 20 to 30 pence per kwh which is insane.

They only hold their heat better because they don't give out heat when you first switch them on. They don't save a penny in running costs, and in fact in most cases are less useful because you don't get the heat when you want it and heat is wasted when you no longer want it.

Would be great if there were a "help" link on electric heaters busting myths about them such as that oil-filled radiators give you more heat for your money...

​Thats the way i like it, im wierd like that. Sudden blows of heat goin from room to room gives me headache and feel sick.
For best cost effective heating use a halogen heater, even 400w setting will give more heat than these useless electricity consuming convecter heaters. Mine rests in my garage for over 2 years now as 2000w of consumption will give you a shock bill if used constantly for many hours per day.
We have one of these. Not a bad bit of kit. As has been mentioned, they are a bit flimsy (very thin metal and very lightweight) but the three heat settings and built in thermostat make them a useful alternative to putting on the gas central heating throughout the house if we are only going to use one room for an hour or two.
The three heat settings are .750, 1.25, and 2Kw. The middle setting is 1.25 Kw, which equates to roughly 15p an hour on our electricity tariff, and we find that heats and maintains our average sized living room to a comfortable temperature surprisingly well.
And what many people forget when calculating the costs of heating by Gas vs Electric heat is the size and efficiency of your gas boiler. Our boiler for instance is a 10KW unit, but many modern combi's are 24KW plus.

They won't give more heat. They will, however, provide focused radiant heat in a small area, not heating the air in the room but allowing objects such as you to feel warmed if you are in the right place. This may offer a way of feeling warm using less electricity than heating the air in the room.

​Clearly one month. Which provider doesn't really matter these days.

This ones better and cheaper, will heat up the room more quickly and even has a cut of switch incase it falls over.

Thats subjective.
Id choose a convection heater over fan any day.
Feel convection distrubutes the heat more evenly in the room and the noise of the fan would do my head in.
