Find quite economical myself. Just leave it on 1 bar and sit near and heats yourself plus the room nicely, relatively cheaply.

I create more heat scratching my head.

They are as bright as the Sun..

Oos

That'll be the Daewoo die

No wonder they're selling these off they're are bluddy awful, had one and it broke down in stages. It was a lottery which bulb broke first.

If you are considering one get a ceramic heater instead.

Never really seen the point of these over a normal convector or fan, doesn't the fact it gives off loads of light make it unsuitable for heating a bedroom, for example at night?

perfect! I get to heat up the room and light it up too! Two birds with one stone

Got this for £16 last winter for our workshop. It’s a bit wobbly and I find you only feel the benefit if right in front of it. It doesn’t seem to heat the air around it.

Tenner is about right, they are a right pile of carp. They blind you and wobble about dangerously. That's when they decide to work at all. As for bedrooms, just get an electric blanket. So much better and cheaper.

I have one of these and its ok for £10. If your a responsible adult, not elderly or infirm and no children or pets charging around,it would be ideal, easy to knock over unless mounted on a firm base. Throws out a lot of light even on one bar, so you could save on lighting, warms an average room in about 15 mins, although i would not leave unsupervised. Used mine from last Oct/March 2017, no faults as of yet, not expensive if used sparingly. Just sold a 50inch Plasma..now that chucked out some heat 355 watts?.

I have this heater and it's what most people are saying, it has a little button at the bottom that needs to be pushed in so hardwood flooring is perfect for a base. It probably wont work as well on fluffy thick carpets. If it topples it will turn off immediately so in that aspect it is safe although like another poster said if you have kids or pets running about it is not suitable.

I find my oil heater to be the cheapest on running costs wise, but likewise if you have little children keep them away as they can get really hot to the touch.

I got one of these a few weeks ago and its a great heater:
argos.co.uk/pro…673

Immediate heat and also has oscillating or stationary setting.
Using my smart meter I can see it costs circa 12p per hour to run on high (1000w) so presumably 6p on 500w.

Isn't it more efficient to have a fan heater blowing warm air around the room rather than radiatiing heat?

I have one of these. As others have said, the bars soon start to fail. Just one left working on mine now but that's all I ever used. Sitting under my desk, it's all you need to keep warm. Also,using only one bar will cost about 5p an hour to use.

To warm just your body, halogen heaters are good as they radiate heat. To warm a room for short periods of time, a fan heater such as a ceramic fan heater are best. And to heat the whole room over a longer period of time, oil radiators and convector heaters are best.
