Online purchase GRAND TOTAL £26.99

Thanks, just ordered one. £5 delivery but knowing my luck they'd be sold out by the time I could get down there...

Ha ha ha, ive just unpacked mine and was about to post this but you beat me to it.
This is in fact my second radiator, however, the first one was bought last year and had a timer, was also from Screwfix, my grandad knicked off me
Great price

BTW I got mine from Aintree but didnt ask if there were any more oO I may of just been lucky

How quick does one of these heat up?
I currently use a fan heater but I'm guessing one of these will be more economical on power?
I noticed the one with a timer is £25.99 which looks good. EDIT: just noticed it's unavailable.

Takes less than 5 minutes to get to full heat. The quality of dials could be a bit better but at 21.99 I'm not complaining, tried mine works a treat.

Just ordered for the cold winter nites

They take EXACTLY the same amount of power for a given amount of heat. It's basic physics. If it is "more economical on power" it will give out less heat.

Good price, but remember these are expensive to run!!!

What's the point? Oil filling has no advantage.

Electrical heaters cost a fortune to run too, as electric is about 4x the price of gas.

Garage/Shed - where there is no central heating
Conservatory
Attic
Spare room

anywhere where you've not got heating it's easier to have one of these than get a rad plumbed in

So sticking one of these in the living room (normal sized square) would eat up basically the same amount of elec than a storage heater that you can manually pump out heat (as well as overnight storage)

good price.

True but since it heats oil not air it retains it heat for far longer meaning the elements need to be on for less time therefore it is more power efficient.

This should be £26.99 which includes delivery

Sorry, you're churning out another myth. It only retains heat for longer because it doesn't give out heat instantly. It takes longer to warm up, and it takes longer to cool down. The two cancel each other out completely. So in general, this is a less useful heater than a fan heater, because you have to wait for the heat and if you don't anticipate switching it off, the heat given off while it cools down is likely to be wasted.

Trade that off against it being quieter, and IMHO a bit safer because the hot element is completely enclosed, unlike with a fan heater.

You pays your money and takes your choice. This is NOT more efficient than a fan heater. It's basic physics, but I guess they don't teach that at school any more. As a result, people are conned all the time into wasting their money to no advantage.

Yes, they would both use the same amount of electricity for a given amount of heat, even though with the storage heater that heat is given out over a different period. The cheat with a storage heater is that you can use cheap rate electricity to charge it up, so although it doesn't break laws of physics, it can cost you less to run. You can't do that with an oil-filled radiator, a fan heater, a convector heater, etc because it's not full of bricks to store the heat.

Storage heaters usually use the cheaper overnight el;ectric assumingyou have Econ7 or similar so will be cheaper to run in theory although maybe not as adjsutable as one of these

As somone else says these are great for say an unheated conservatory if you put it on a timer as much much cheaper to buy initially than a heat pump or additonal radiator plumbed in. Although may cost a bit more ongoing, however as our obne is only probably used 6 months of the year for a couople of hours a day, the pay back period must be pretty long on a heat pump unit or additional rad

Are they not available from branches?

Nice for a conservatory

We have no branches beside us

P.E

I doubt whether this will be powerful enough for your average conservatory in winter - they are notoriously poorly insulated and really shouldn't be regarded as being habitable rooms. But if you must heat the sky...

Fair enough - but there's no obligation on the OP to include the delivery charge in the headline price if they are available from branches.

It takes the chill off enough to be useable as we have one and use it thanks so its not hearsay...

Modern conservatories are a lot better these days so the better the spec of the conservatory the more likely something like this may be appropriate for a cheap heat source for occassional use especially

Oh I'm sure it's better than nothing - my comment still stands though.

Got one for £21.99 from Beckenham. They had another...

Cheers OP.
Got one with timer for £25.99 in Oxford.
For the version with the timer look for part number 84978

hmm.. NO.

There are 150 branches nationwide most have 1 or 2 in stock at 21.99! And most ppl seem to have manage to get them for 21.99

Just bought 2 from Chester, hopefully will be as good as everybody is saying they are!

I got one of the timer ones in Stirling yesterday, still had two left.

Mine is going back tomorrow - complete waste of time. It cuts out all the time, not just with the thermostat. Similar reviews on Screwfix to be honest.
