Had a couple of these a few years ago when the heating broke down and they did a job. Build quality isn't the best BUT they did what they were supposed to do and for this price you can't really go wrong can you

Just watch your electric bill shoot through the roof!

Our house had no central heating when we first moved in so had to rely on these heaters. We were paying £700 a 1/4!

Have one of these on as we speak keeping me nice and warm - even on the lowest setting it does a good job and this is a fab price!! Hot (literally)

Agreed, cheaper buying a calor gas fire and using gas bottles!

Generally NOT true, and a common myth. Apart from the enormous initial outlay for heater and bottle "rental" the price per useful KW of heat is often as dear or dearer!

Add to the problem of huge amounts of water vapour those things release into the air & the fact they need a LOT of ventilation to use safely which is "conveniently" only ever mentioned in the small print of the user's manual (which if you do provide it also tends to cause draughts) , the danger of burning people and items, due to the hot radiant surface, also the fire and explosion risk, (it's only a matter of weeks since the last one!) as well as the problem of lugging about steel gas bottles weighing about 25Kg when full, then the electric wins every time. If you want CONTINUOUS heat, then it also means you would need a spare gas cylinder, or face being without heat until you get a refil!

However they are expensive to run too, and both LPG cabinet AND electric convector heaters are not very good to QUICKLY heat up the air in the room. I prefer fan heaters to get the temperature up quickly, but not for long term use anywhere!

Actually at the moment I have NO heating on and I am nice and warm, so I am not surprised!
It is 11 degrees outside, so with normal insulation, doors and windows closed, it's almost 19.8 deg C in my house!

y x c =m2 + y/e x c2 = hot

Better off buying an oil filled radiator than one of these, but thats just my opinion.

U would be mad yo try and heat an entire house with these, but when its really cold and you are living somewhere not well insulated then you cna keep a room warm.

Similar, bit slower to heat up, bit slower to cool down both similarly huge costs to run when compared by output, usually a bit more reliable and longer lived but more expensive to buy.

ihave a oil filled radiator..bot duringsummer for £19 from argos.
The best use of these is in cold spots at home or in ur bedroom when u have the central heating off in the night... just to keep the temperature a bit bearable..when u have to get out of bed. I have been using it at low setting.

I feel we all are jumping into conclusion about the whole radiators - gas/electric without paying any heed to the insulation problem.

Use one of these in the caravan and as a back up in the house - invaluable for a tenner.

LOL! Good for you?!?! Who says your house is going to be the same temperature as mine?? What a weird comment. I live in a penthouse with glass panels and doors one whole side of the living room looking out, so it can get a bit chilly!!

Oh and 19.8C is way below room temperature.....

I would suggest that what you need isn't a heater at all, it's insulation then.
Government grants are around (or have they been cut yet?) Mine isn't up to modern standards though, I only have single glazing, and 25yo loft and wall insulation standard, as I have my loft boarded out and didn't want to lose the space to have the thicker modern insulation installed.

19.8 deg C is a perfectly good temperature for someone in normal health, (and far warmer than the 16 dg C you are legally entitled to demand at work, so you must find that freezing!) it's 68 deg Fahrenheit, what, not that far back, was a good summer's day! Especially so when outside temperatures aren't very low (causing draughts).
You will find that Central Heating systems are only actually designed to provide temperatures of 18 to 21 deg C in the first place, so that's only a maximum of 1.2 deg C more than I was sitting in! eg plumbingpages.com/fea…cfm
WiIth underfloor heating they only recommend 20 deg C! eg. eco-hometec.co.uk/und…asp

The middle aged to elderly who often have under-active Thyroid do need and find higher temperatures necessary, (more common with women) mine was like this (runs in the family) until I had tests and treatment, so now I have normal temperature regulation.
