2kw free standing/wall mountable convector heater £9 delivered @ CPC

Be prepared for the upcoming cold nights with this heater. Not the most efficient method of heating but convenient for a quick 'boost', especially for those with storage heaters who have to rely on the Met Office to incorrectly predict the weather. £9 delivered, can't go wrong.

That's all folks, now sold out, please can we expire.

I'd have to agree not the most efficient, but then these are usually about £20, so at only £9 it's a bargain, and the saving will help offset the electricity usage for a while
Say you're saving £11 on this item if you had bought for £20. Can anyone tell us how many hours you'd be able to use the heater with £11 worth of electricity?
All electric heaters are 100% efficient so what you are saying is a misunderstanding of how this works.
do you know if there exspensive to run? im looking for something to heat my conservatory.thanks
Roughly 20-25p an hour depending on you leccy tariff.
Great price.. yep a fortune to run but when your in an all electric apartment with inefficient storage heaters these do the job!
Any other sources of heat better that anyone could recommend would be great
I use one of these in my bedroom in winter. It warms the room in ten minutes. I have an oil radiator too which takes an age to warm the room so I don't use that anymore.
Cost will be closer to 8-10p per hour. They have an inbuilt thermostat so they do not stay on for the whole hour.

If you leave them on a very high setting, then you are likely to roast...........

Great price....HOT

I used to sell these to electrical wholesalers 25 years ago for £12.50 each. Mind you they were made in Britain
I prefer a fan heater myself, seems to warm a room up in no time at all.
These are excellent heaters. I have a very similar one ( only 2 settings ) and it warms a 15 x 9 room in no time at all and has to be one of the cheapest ways of keeping warm, is certainly cheaper than my gch which I rarely use now.

Trouble with fan heaters most of them make a hell of a racket.
Wonder how long the lead is, they seem to get shorter all the time.
Thanks op, Just bought 3 of them, Weathers too unpredictable at this time of year for storage heating and sometimes with storage heating it's too hot as you can't turn them off so end up opening all the windows lol.

I think they'll come in handy until mid-October when the storage heaters remain on constantly and will help boost towards the evening/night.

Maybe you`ll let us know length of cable when you get them?

Ok, I'll try and remember
these are €25 (17.50pounds) on the irish version of CPC.

9 is a great price

Sounds faulty. Mine is silent, other than when the thermostat switches.

they're only efficient at turning electrical energy into heat energy. that doesn't mean they're efficient at heating a room.

a company called rointe do a range of electric radiators which they claim are cheaper to run than a gas central heating system if installed throughout the property.
they are expensive to buy though.
Ordered thanks. Heat Added!

It would appear that you're the one to have misunderstood my comment; I stated that they are not the most efficient heating, not because of the input/output but because convector heaters only heat the air passing through the the product hence the name convection, so therefore doesn't propel the heat but rather rely on physics. There are more efficient heating methods, such as heat pump heating appliances these allow for a lesser input of energy with a greater output of thermal energy. But you're correct in saying that the appliance converts 100% percent of the electrical energy into thermal energy.

No, there are no moving parts. Just a heating coil.

Yes, in context anything that P1$$es heat through lots of glass / uninsulated walls, floors etc make heating expensive to run, you need to address the living space requirements & heat retention as best you can (eg thinsulate by celotex, other brands available, to reduce the monsterous heat losses incurred.

I recommend them. They heat a whole room as opposed to fan heaters that just blast warm air in one direction. The metal is very thin and they dent easily. The wire coil breaks after about a year , but you just throw them away and get another one . Very good price OP.
Just bought 2! Very happy...
I have one as well ..It is silent and works well.

Well 2 or 3 of you seem to have them already,can someone post what the length of the flex is please?
Ideal for a small room if you don't have central heating

I would say he was referring to the massive inefficiencies in producing the electricity (30% is realistic) in the first place and then transporting it all the way to the home (10% is a rough estimate given losses in cables and transformers). Once in the home there will be wasted sound and light (indicator light) too because everyone know that no device can be 100% efficient - Perpetual energy machine heaters? Pah!

Energy used in 1 hours is:
2000w x 60 seconds in each minute x 60 minutes in each hour = 7,200,000 J or 2kwh

Cost = Unit price (of a kwh) x Energy (kwh) x Time (hrs)

So, if the cost will be £11 or 1100p:

Time = Cost / (Unit price x Energy)
= 1100 / (10x2)
= 55 hours

So not the most efficient or cost effective way of heating a home.... keeping a gas hob on would be far cheaper.

No they aren't!
There will be wasted energy in the form of sound (reported and obvious) and light (indicator light) produced. Everyone know that no device can be 100% efficient - Perpetual energy machine heaters? Pah!

And the was no mention and therefore no misunderstanding either about 'how an electric heater works'.

Good spot, have some heat...I just got their mailing and it's on the front cover @ £11.50 (+ VAT!) (HG0091619)
