Bargain price for one of these hot rad I mean hot deal

Fantastic price. We all might need one of these come end of January!

better buy now, it is a steal at this time of the year.

Cold, doesn't post to north of Ireland.

If you keep this on, it costs like £90 a month to run.

This is an older model and the newer one has a timer and is more efficient-they are a good brand though and normally over £100. Both Aldi and Lidl have oil rads currently in their stores and worth comparing with those.

latest model at amazon is £131.62

I don't know how expensive to run but we have one in work and it pumps the heat out. As a standby item I would consider buying for the home.

could you not just buy this and a timer plug for a couple of quid

As a law of thermodynamics transferring anything to heat is a 100 percent efficient process.
How you keep the heat in the room is another matter.

You should only worry about efficiency when you do not want heat out of a system. For example a light bulb, you want less heat and more light. In fact the old incandescent light bulbs gave off almost 99% heat and 1% light from each kwh electricity consumed

A plug timer would do same job.

The newer one has fancy fins and funnels air so that heat is rapidly transferred to the surrounding air. This will probably do the same over a longer time.

Bargain at tthis price..

Fantastic price, good deal....

Got one of these and trust me they do a great job in keeping the room hot for a long time by using for like 3-4hrs a day. And my electricity bill has been modetare aswell. And at this price, its a superb deal. HOT!

Good deal as its an awesome company. I bought mind a fairly new model 2 years ago including 10 year warranty for £45. 1.5kw & it's perfect ! Helps heat places where your central hearing is having trouble & yes it is expensive if u leave on ALLLLL DAYYYY. But go for a less voltage output like mine. Mine is as big as any other model as its a dragon series. & it's great !! Bills not been soaring they've been okay :).

Just too expensive to run.I will stick with gas central heating and stove.

link not working

If you pay 12.5p/kwh for electricity, it would cost you 25p/hour to run it on full. However, it may not be on all the time if you turn the temp down.

I don't like the ones with a built in thermostat - I would recommend going with an ET-05 plug in thermostat (on ebay etc), then placing the heater away from the plug. This way the heater doesn't turn off because it's made it's self hot, but not the rest of the room.

And yes, the new model is NOT more efficient in turning electricity in to heat.
It MAY be more efficient at heating the room quickly, say; but then it will also probably cool down quicker too.

Gas is significantly cheaper if you have got it generally.
HOWEVER, if you don't or your system is broke, the upfront costs are likely massively higher than £30.
There are a lot of situations where it might be better to accept a fair bit higher running costs over incredibly high up-front costs.

We use a similar unit (uk dimplex) as a back up heat & to warm our very ancient cockateil.
The way to reduce cost & heat loss is to a great degree, INSULATE, even if it's only temporary, whilst you have the rad on.
Secondly DON'T place heaters against outer walls unless you are attempting to dry that wall out because of water ingression & mould / condensation over time, ..you will merely be sending warm air to the outer skin just a bit more slowly than placing a radiator underneath a window. (which is stupidly common in uk housing stock).
Warm the inner core of a house & use it as a thermal mass heatsink for slow release if possible (a bit like economy 7 heavy storage heaters).
Try a small piece of reflective insulation, foil foam PIR type behind it to push it back into a room, this way we save a lot of on/off heat cycling from the portable rad.

In fact having placed it by the bird, surrounded it with offcuts & partially blanketed the cage & heater to direct flow past the old fella it uses a fraction of what it did before, we have doubled this up in effect by placing the dog cage in the same area, added insulation around th exposed sides (1/2 walls in a bay window) covered over with bubble foil which keeps the dogs snug via the same venting heat).

once again, look & plan ways to insulate over the heating season that you can live with, & you will save a shedload of cash you haven't got!

A good buy is to get a moisture / humidity temperature display set up to monitor & maintain decent levels without going overboard, remember gas heating creates a lot of moisture compared to dry electric heat, necessitating some form of trickle ventilation.

The old "wire dial" thermostats are pretty shonky for the era we live today & don't really teach anyone about heating levels, but even a small kid can read the temperature of an lcd unit & make an appropriate decision.

With these oil rads they click in & out normally, so you get an idea of how often it's having to re-heat, handy though might be audible in bedrooms,...where you are better off buying an electric blanket then getting dressed faster in the morning, or like we do have the underfloor heating on in the bathroom & a strict dressing times rota adhered to!

Definitely giving off some heat

Just tried to buy... Item listing has ended

Been here before,nothing is 100 % efficient,please research before making sweeping statements.
The person that invents a 100% efficient energy machine will be the richest person on earth.
Apart from that,a cracking deal.

Dammit! Too late.

So, do tell where the energy 'wasted' goes?

What about people selling air source heat pumps? These are listed at around 300% efficient.
That is, they create about 3x the heat as the electricity they use.
Magic? No - they just extract heat from other sources (outside air).

100% at wasting energy = 0 percent efficency work done.
Heat is a form of wasted energy in a machine (any machine)
Please read up on your physics before arguing further.

Happy with mine, checked on my smart meter and it works out around 40p an hour to use on the highest setting and it kicks out a lot of heat.
