These radiators are energy efficient heating solutions.


No more efficient than any other entirely electrical heating solution. If anything, they can be wasteful as they need to be turned off well-before the end of a heating requirement to benefit from the retained stored heat that it releases slowly. Great price for a 2kW unit.

Thanks op as needed one
Have some heat

Is this cheaper to run than a fan heater or halogen heater?

Is this cheaper to run than a fan heater or halogen heater?


Same cost if you benefit from all the heat you pay for. Fan heaters and halogen heaters tend to be the most effective type of heater for instant on / off of both heat and cost. Oil-filled solution such as OP take longer to supply any beneficial heat and continue to provide beneficial reducing heat after turned off (hosepipe versus filling leaking bucket effect).

how much would this cost to run for let's say 6 hours a day? not sure what electric unit price is

Does this run on electric with plug and do you need to put oil in it to use it

Current electricity utility price is likely around 12p per kWh unit. Absolute max this heater can use in a 6 hr period = 12 x unit cost, so say max £1.44 in a 6hr period. It's unlikely to be "on" all the time though as the thermostat will turn on & off as required - assuming the thermostat temperature is reached at some stage.

It has wheels so you can plug it and move it as well.

Take out of box. Plug into wall socket. Select one of three power levels. Wait a while for heat to be absorbed by oil and gradually emitted, say 5 mins to start feeling any benefit. Set thermostat. Job done.

Way better than fan heaters. You turn them on & get instant heat but turn them off & room gets cold straight away.

With oil filled, takes a while to heat up...and there might be some oil popping sounds...but room stays warm for a good while after its turned off

So it's exactly the same, really.

"These radiators are energy efficient heating solutions" - this was made up by the OP, is not in the description on the website and if it were, the ASA would slap it down. Please don't perpetuate the myth that oil-filled radiators save money over other types of electric heater - they don't.

The first one is more powerful, so will give out more heat, and cost correspondingly more to run. There's no black art here - they all produce the same amount of heat for the electricity you pay.

​I didn't say they saved money. I didn't read whatever the OP said..So don't make up stuff or assume!

My post is based on my own experience with both types of heaters.

They are both the same type of heater - convector.

Yes. Whilst replying to me!

Which is better. Convector or oil filled?

Don't know what the other guys talking about but these are a lot cheaper to run then fan heaters. Also fan heaters let out dry air which is proven to be bad for skin. I have this particular one and it's only useful in small rooms

Nothing special about the price it's been like this in store for several months now, check in 2 different Tescos.

This was on HUK previously, would only recommend for small rooms as I have one, far to small to heat up ur average bedroom or living room.

It's a legitimate question if you've never seen a heater before

This is silent. Fan heaters make a noise.

These cost exactly the same to run for the amount of heat you get as any other non-storage electric heater. Schoolboy physics - conservation of energy. Nor do they or fan heaters change the amount of moisture in the air. Heating air by any means reduces the relative humidity, however, so if you sit in the blast of very hot air from a fan heater then that will be dryer, relatively speaking. If you point the air flow away from you then it will be no different to an oil-filled radiator.

Guys we've got an issue in our bedroom. We've got 2 radiators but it is a very large room for a bedroom. They work as they should and get very hot but don't do the job well enough. The room never really heats up properly whereas the rest of the house is fine.

There seems to be a few people on this thread that know what they're talking about so do you think adding this as a 3rd radiator (obviously electric rather than gas/mains) could help solve the issue or would you recommend a different solution or larger unit?

thanks in advance.

I love oil filled radiators-this is a fab price. Will be ordering. I have managed to live without one this winter but it hasn't been as cold I think this year. On the plus side, def noticed a price difference in my electricity bills this winter!

These can be useful in a bedroom overnight rather than having the whole house heating on. To only heat one bedroom, you'd otherwise have to go round the house and turn off other radiators, eg lounge. So in that respect they 'may' (depending on what you want heated, efficiency of your central heating system, size of rooms, etc) turn out more cost effective than having the central heating on overnight.

We use a 500W one of these in our bedroom with a small fan pointing towards it. This makes the room more evenly heated.

I've got the same problem, boiling hot rad and little room warmth. I've put my particular problem down to poor loft & cavity wall insulation..

Got one working at the moment and room is lovely and warm , stay clear of argos one's , they are utter ****...

And these should only be £20...did notice Tesco cheekily put them up to £29 a couple of weeks ago, but good find, anything thats cheap and keeps you warm is good in my book
