bainbridge, when have you ever known a radiator to make noise? it's not a fan heater.

it's silent.

i know it's not a fan heater i meant the timer on the radiator !! Sorry should of said that !!

Oh, i see... i'm not sure about that.

Last time this sold out pretty quick, got one this time around! Thanks OP!

I've got this. And it is v noisy. When it heats and cools it makes creaky noises as it heats or cools

When the metal expands? It can't be that bad.

Thanks Vik1

Ordered. Thanks

It's enough to wake me, and the click of the timer is annoying. I end up just leaving it on and buying a digital timer which is a few quid.

Mine could be faulty and I'm a light sleeper,

for the price its a good deal, I spent 80 odd

These are quite good and get really warm fast... well worth it at this price

If you don't mind the noise of a fan heater, buy one instead - much cheaper and cost the same to run for the same heat output as an oil-filled radiator or any other non-storage electric heater. And have no warm-up time at all.

Ordered, thanks OP

Thanks Bulldog - was just looking for a new heater earlier today and this will do the trick.

How effiecent are these things? I dont want to get one and then get a large electric bill.

Noise for me is not such a big issue as my computer sounds like a jumbo jet sometimes so i've probably become desensitised (deaf) to it.

I'm a bit torn between this and a convection heater? Anyone have both or tried both recommend either way?

mooo

Well it'll use 1.5kw/h on the highest settings so you can work out your costs based on what electricity supplier charges per kwh.

No, not an idiot. It has a 'stat, so cuts out when the room is hot. It only draws power when it's heating. Mine cycles on and off a lot once it's heated up.

Wow, I'm guessing the 'text speak' means that you've got a great sense of irony, too?

Loads of these oil filled heaters aren't silent at all. They aren't as loud as a fan heater, but they make noises when they expand and contract (often loud clicking or pinging) and ones with electromechanical timers sometimes tick or whir.

The point is, though, as I and others have said again and again (and here already!), that it costs the same to run as any other electric heater for the amount of heat you get (apart from storage heaters).

Best to keep a bowl of water in the room the heater is being used, speak from experience, they dehumidify the air badly, dries your skin out big time. (am wrinkly enough without dry heat..)<3

Ordered and heat added.

Just noticed it has a 10 Year Warranty as well.

A radiator with a damp towel draped over it. A kettle boiling. A greenhouse in the sun.

If you use one of these for any length of time you will get a large electricity bill.

goto tesco clubcard site and choose small domestic appliances section then exchange £10 or £20 worth of vouchers they will then email you a code for double the amount.
just double check you choose the ones for tesco direct and not instore.
