Good price, have some...heat!

Hot

Another hot deal for the winter!

I recommend the 1200w ones that are about £4 more. The bulbs are really small in this compared to the 1200w ones, and does not kick out anywhere near as much heat.

Good price though, so have some heat.

Mine is a B&Q version and looks different but I have to say it was the best 15 quid I ever spent. Absolutely brilliant if you want a blast of immediate heat. Safe to put your feet right up close and ideal if your house is cold and you want a quick bit of heat for an hour or two without wanting to heat the whole house up. Highly recommended.

Fantastic deal!

nice find

The heater will give me heat so ile give you some heat

These give out more light, than heat.(_;)

Don't halogen heaters cost more to run that a standard convector, yet not output any more heat?

Still a hot deal, but something to bear in mind!!

Brilliant find, just purchased mine!!

Yes, this will drink electricity.

Maybe for the electricians out here... but how can it cost less to run one of these vs standard electric heaters? Last time I checked, running 800W continuously is not exactly economical...

Voted HOT, HOT, HOT!

... which is more than can be said for the heat output of this 800w heater.

CHEEPSTUFFRULES!

It'll cost the same to run continuously as any other 800w conventional electric heater

It'll cost more to run continuously compared to any other conventional electric heater less than 800w

It'll cost less to run continuously compared to any other conventional electric heater more than 800w

So it depends what you are comparing it to

Excellent! Just bought one. Thanks! Heat added

Good price if you are in the market for an electric heater anyway.

The description copied in is obvious sales carp though, unless the fraction referred to is near-1/1

That's what I thought X)

OK, I had a quick look around and it seems conventional fan heaters range from 1kW to 3kW. So I guess 800W is a fraction of 3kW...

Still though, slightly misleading stating 'High efficiency energy saving' I think, 800W is quite high.

Excellent very efficient heaters according to the description

been that price, or less for years in Trago Mills, Falmouth

Just got one for HIS man cave Lots of heat.

You won't get much more efficient than an electric heater. They are almost 100% efficient

Rom

Yes almost 100% I would say, just like every electric heater

great price thks heat!

Efficient or not, the price is good. We had a different one which broke (courtesy of a soon to be castrated dog) and tried to replace it but neither currys or homebase had any halogen heaters at all in stock. Just ordered this yesterday for a couple of quid more off amazon and nothing came close to this price

Home bargains do a 1700-2000W fan heater for £7.99. That's close-ish ... and 2 -2.5x the heat output. Thermostatically controlled too.

And costs 2-2.5x as much to run (unless they are switched OFF by the thermostat), just in case the, erm, penny still hasn'y dropped for anyone.

Only because it gives out 2-2.5x the heat.

But it's thermostatically controlled so no need for it to run continuously. It'll provide the same heat output in half or less the time.

Has the penny dropped for you yet?

I love these halogen heaters but I recommend spending about £20 for a decent one. I got a cheap one on ebay and it arrived with a smashed bulb and by spending a bit more I got a good one at Wilko

The price may be good but what is the quality of this particular heater like?

Need one of these for work. Thanks

Albert Einstein summed this whole thing up pretty well ..

This device effectively converts 800w electrical energy into 800w heat and light. The fact that it produces so much more light than a convector heater would tell me that it is actually less efficient (assuming your objective is a warm room rather than having a blingy heater in the corner).

You should buy 2 or 3 at this price.


You'll probably need them

It's a very small amount of light energy though, comparatively. Incandescent lighbulbs are >5% efficient. The rest is heat.

Good price
