I purchased one of these but when I plugged it in, after a few minutes it became very hot. I switched it off as I suspect it may be a dodgy Chinese poor quality item.

​never switch an appliance like this off if it becomes hot, always poor water on it instead.

How is this a deal? It is just a link to an item on ebay. I could put thousands of links to things that are just for sale.

Just checked mine out and it is definitely much hotter after plugging it in. I will be sending it straight back for a replacement.

That was bad advice. The floor is now wet, I got a bit of a shock and now none of my other electrical items in my house are working anymore. (except my laptop which has gone to battery power.

2KW = 30 -40 p an hour (depending on your tariff ) .

o yeah, i've seen these, usually outside waiting for the scrap metal guy to collect it.

good find op, heat added

heat added to my front room

Don't expect anything longer than a few weeks use out of it. Cold from me even if it was half the price.

Voted hot, I don't understand all the hate

Poor (rather than rich) water?

​​What are people's views between a convector heater and an oil filled heater please? I was looking at an oil filled one for £40 from Lidl. If they are very similar I would rather spend less money on this.

no that's the same person, creating multiple accounts and failing to be even slightly funny

I use these. Had same 4 in different rooms for 2 years now. Only issue is the feet are very wobbly

Our elec tariff Is 8.9p/kwh, so it's pretty much half that.

We got the fan version of this from Homebase last year for a tenner for the summerhouse - it's great. Only need it on for a few minutes to warm the room up.

​If anything, an oil-filled radiator is LESS efficient since the oil must be heated before it begins to radiate heat into the room. This also makes it less controllable because it will continue to radiate heat when switched-off until the oil cools. Also no good where instant heat is required. I've tried both and much prefer a convector heater (preferably one with a switchable fan to help circulate the hot air).

this will heat the room up quicker than the oil filled radiator,but it will also cool quicker.

yep.ones with a fan built in are much better,had one in my front room the last few years.saves putting the central heating on.

Technically they will be pretty much the same efficiency, though I think convectors are better as the heat is instant, and you can turn it off once you no longer need the heat and leave the room, an oil radiator will continue to heat the room unnecessarily, so could cost more to run.

2kW is the max consumption. The unit has switchable options for 700W, 1250W and 2000W plus "...With Adjustable Thermostat..." which means when the room reaches the theromstat's trigger temperature the electricty consumption will be near zero for the duration of the off period regardless of the heat settings.

General summary: convector heaters with switchable fans tend to be the most flexible for most instances. Example unit v similar to OP but with fan £15.95 dlvd Amazon marketplace amazon.co.uk/gp/…GC/
Convector heaters inject heat into a space faster then oil-filled, and equally stop heating immediately when switched off. They are quick to add heat in response to thermostatic control. Oil-filled heaters take a while to release their heat when turned on and continue to release the heat after being turned off, this makes thermostatic control of the oil-filled heaters smoother but less responsive, and also potentially heat-wasteful towards the end of the heat requirement unless the heater is turned off at a suitable period prior to no longer being required. Convector heaters with fan enabled will distribute the heat around a space more quickly, but this has the effect of "diluting" proximity heat until the entire space nears the thermostat temp. Traditional fan heaters will typically offer simialr facilities to convector heaters with fans but can often be used in "no-heat" mode to blow air around in summer to provide a perceived cooling effect, but can be noisy in heating / blowing mode. HTH.

£16.20 delivered from CPC if you want to buy from a mainstream company. It was £9.99+vat but that offer has expired.

cpc.farnell.com/pro…606

Personally I'd buy a small fan heater from CPC for £6-£7 as you can direct it towards you and it heats you up a little more quickly while still heating the air in the room.

If you're after a long term electrical heating solution, go for a fixed air conditioning system as they are a lot more efficient than a conventional electric heater - you can get 4-5kW of heat out for 1kW in - they are a lot more expensive though .....

What would you suggest as an alternative ?

These have been on here cheaper, but If you need to heat a room up quickly then I recommend them . The metal case is thin and dents easily , so don't kick them. They normally come in a box where you have to screw the feet on yourself . Providing you screw them on tight , no problem . The element wires are thin, so could break if you drop it , but otherwise should last for years and if one should fail, then just throw it away and get another one.

Convectors can make the air dry so if you suffer from coughs you might want to consider something else.

Oil filled is like central heating it takes a little longer to heat up but not that long but when it switches off the oil stays warm and residual heat still heats the room once it cools the thermostat turns is back on while saving you money!

Convectors are instant heat but once off they are cold within minutes! For a house i'd go with an oil filled radiator but depends what your using it for? Top up central heating then get a convector! In a shed get a convector

​Id go for an oil filled radiator as it's safer. These convection heaters heat the room up faster than oil rads, but since there's nothing protecting the element inside, little debris, splashes of water (if in bathroom) etc will end its life.
