Damn, feel for you guys. They've got over 2000 in stock, let your folks know.
Anyone know how long the power cable is?

They are normally very short. Dont know about this one specificly however.

I'd guess 1.5m max, more likely to be 1m.

How efficient is this?

How does it compare to IR/convection/fan?

I use fifteen of these to heat my home because it's much cheaper than central heating.

Top work, hot deal!

Do these eat electricity? Used a few before but never paid much heat to them?

Nope, the whole idea is the oil is heated up and heat maintained this way. It turns off at intervals and let's the heated oil keep the room warm just so.

Depends what you are using it for, gas heating is cheaper but electric cheaper if you just want to heat a small area.
Hot lol

About 2000W when heating. What do you mean? A 2000W radiator will put out 2000W heat.
Ordered to replace our old one thanks
Be careful buying on line bought 3 from Aldi all went back with bent fins. Glad only up the road as wouldn't like to have to post back. Just a mention.

CPC package well, not like Quidco etc. Should be okay.
Is it actually white in colour or cream like most others nowadays!?
Can’t see any details on their website on guarantee?

Would be white really.
Ordered 1 of these no to long ago, not that great to be honest

Ordered. Thanks.
If its made anything like the pro elec extension leads I'd steer well clear.

Infra red is most efficient i think, but it doesn't heat up the room properly, it heats up the objects in the room.

Like Tottenham Hotspur. It works but don't expect it to win any awards.
Good price and CPC are a great company to deal with. Super quick delivery and great at sorting out any problems

Heat output from radiators is typically measured in BTUs. 1 watt is approximately 3.4 BTU. At maximum output it's going to generate about 6800 BTU/hour of heat. As a guide you probably need around 5000 BTUs to heat a medium sized room of 12ftx12ft. And no electric heaters are not cheap to run but an electric radiator would probably be more cost effective than a fan heater or convector. If you need supplementary heat they are a solution.

An electric heater puts out the same amount of heat be it fan, convection or oil radiator if they are the same power. The only difference really is that a fan heater will heat up a room very quickly and turn off until the temp drops while an oil radiator will take a long time to heat up but retain the heat for a longer time but it still uses the same amount of energy.

If electric wasnt so expensive all homes would use it for heating as it's far more efficient but the lower cost of gas offsets this.

2kw is basically around 25p per hour assuming 12.5p per 1kw on average. Use this overnight for 8 hours will cost £2...is this really cheaper than gas central heating

Or have I ballsd up my maths...

No you're right and the unit cost maybe even higher than 12.5p. So it's never going to be cheaper than gas. Just think about it, that's just one room. Imagine heating a whole house with electric.

Anyone unsure should read this thisismoney.co.uk/mon…tml
Thanks OP, great deal. Ordered
Its pretty warm, 3 settings, 800watts with button I on only, 1200watts with button II on only. 2000watts total with Button I & II are on.
Does stop itself when reached a heat point & auto start, so not running electric full time.

Must cost an absolute fortune. How did that other member say they use 15 of these heaters around the house instead of gas?! That would beat least £30 a day for 8 hours of heating....so £900 a month electric bills

It's absurdly expensive. We live in a badly insulated flat fitted with "Rointe" heaters, which are backed up by pseudo-scientific nonsense to claim they're somehow more efficient than other electric heaters...which means the landlord can inflate the EPC rating.
Just having the two 1.4kW bedroom heaters on overnight costs around £2.50 -- and on cold days, as the thermostat is on the heater itself, they never actually heat the room adequately.

Yep, I'm always a bit baffled when people ask how efficient an electric heater is... It's... almost 100% efficient. If it wasn't the energy would be turned into something else such as light or motion. Introducing a fan might distribute the heat more evenly but "Ye cannae change the laws of physics" (sorry ).
Looking at the 2 most popular quotes on the top, sounds like Oil rads are not worth it over the electric cheaper ones you get for £15-20 quid in Asda.
