Good price

Can anyone recommend this as a safe, energy efficient heater? Wary of electric heaters in terms of power consumption etc....
Thanks.

I use an oil filled radiator like argos.co.uk/pro…953. Based on this energy.gov/ene…ers they're the best option for safety and the best of a bad lot for power consumption as an electric heater... Not sure what offers there are on these right now, got mine a few years ago in Tesco...

AFAIAA all types of electric heaters produce the same amount of heat per KW of electricity so no difference in efficiency - just look out for something with both a thermostat & timer

personally I prefer oil filled radiators as they are silent & you can use them to dry clothes (that can cope with the radiators hotness)

some links :

homebase.co.uk/en/…820
(very cheap for a convertor heater)

homebase.co.uk/en/…025
(only big enough for box rooms & caravans)

No such thing as an "energy efficient heater". 100% of the energy consumed by any heater is converted into heat. Some might turn into light or sound, but that's converted to heat as soon as it hits anything anyway. The only differences is in the way they heat a room - some might heat the air more, some might heat things directly in front of them more than things behind. An oil-filled radiator takes a little time heating itself up before heating the room, but that's countered when it releases heat slowly after being turned off.

Thanks guys.

I have an oil filled radiator and agree, works well and as you say, releases heat when off and not drawing much power and has a thermostat so pretty good.

Its £20 delivered... Not £15 delivered !

thanks. ordered for collection in Sutton.

Actually many air conditioning units can be used as heating units with some of them proving over four times the input power as output heat. So you get >400% of the energy consumed back as heat. The bonus is you can use them to keep cool in the summer

Very clever but what's being said is what always needs to be said on these threads - you don't get something for nothing with electric heaters unless they're storage heaters and you're on Economy 7. There's a widespread myth that oil-filled radiators provide miracle heat you don't pay for, but they don't. The 400% COP of air conditioners in heating mode (and I have one) is under ideal conditions. Under realistic conditions this is impaired by things like the evaporators icing up.

I remember seeing these in store last winter and they were £18.99 back then....where do they get their original prices from?

Back up at £39 on the web..
