Good price but it just does 2kwh and 3kwh. The old model which looked exactly the same did 1,2 and 3kwh but they change the rocker switch to off and 2kwh instead of 1 or 2 kwh. So I replaced it.

You maybe able to help. This or an oil filled radiator?
Sorry.i know some people have all electric and no gas but when you compare a same gas radiator at 3kw using only 8p gas an hour and an electric one using 45p an hour it is criminal.

Not a fan of electric heaters but sometimes you don't have a choice.to choose between the two it would have to be an oil filled radiator.the other releases heat much quicker but when switched off goes cold right away.oil filled takes a few minutes to warm up but when switched off still stays warm for some time.oil filled also circulates the heat much better.

I like convector heaters because they're quick to heat and quiet, I use one in my bedroom before bed, I tried oil filled and they took too long to heat and for me they worked out more expensive but not as effective. convector heaters though are expensive to run. This one on my tariff would cost me 32p an hour on 2kwh. So if you're after long term heating then oil filled will be cheaper but if you're after say no more than an hour to heat a room up then convectors are great.

Or the oil free Dimplex one which I posted (which went cold!) but is of similar efficiency to an oil filled one but about 10% cheaper to run. The one in this deal may be cheaper to buy but can only be considered for short term heating.

The oil free one heats up quickly and is cheaper than a simple convector but costs more initially. £109 from Costco, reduced from about £140

You are not really comparing apples to apples.
A comparison would be a bottle gas portable heater. Which are not cheap to run either.

Besides if you were running on all electronic I would hope you would choose a better tariff than 15p per kWh. Also 8p for a 3kw heat output on gas is very cheap considering how efficient gas heating is.
The 2kw version of this heater is currently on Ebay with Hughes direct for £36.79 using code PRIZE20

Wouldn't bottled gas still be a cheaper option than electric, I'm pretty sure it used to be.

More than half the energy used in electricity generation is lost and another 10% or so is lost in transmission. mpoweruk.com/ene…htm

A standard domestic gas heater uses a 13kg propane bottle in about 50 hours at a 3kw output. The cost for a refill (once you have a bottle) is about £42.
A 3kw electric heater will use about £22.50 for the same period (0.15*3*50) so using bottle gas would cost you £20 more.

While you are correct energy generation isn't particularly efficient, you are paying at point of use so from a financial point of view it's not your problem.

I should have googled, this suggests bottled gas cost between 14p to 32p per Kwh in 2018, depending on bottle size, I think I currently pay about 13p per kwh for electricity.

Electricity is expensive compared to mains gas due to the inefficiency of generation and transmission, plus covering the subsidies for green and nuclear energy.

Oil filled radiators, convectors and fan heaters all have the same efficiency (100%), because they use exactly the same operating principle, the Joule effect.

Yep, so much utter nonsense in this thread.

Any 2 heaters of the same power rating output exactly the same heat. (Unless one of them has a mini black hole inside (lol))
