I need to get a heater, does anyone have a any experience / tips when it comes to buying a heater?
It needs to be fairly cheap to run and actually heat up a room

I've ordered this thanks, been looking for a decent one for a while and this has good reviews.

Assuming the 3 heat settings are 500w, 1000w and 1500w, based on an average 10p per kw per hour you would pay 5p per hour on the lowest setting, 10p on the middle setting and 15p on the higher setting. The middle setting is good enough for me to heat a 12 foot by 12 foot room.

A silly question, but from where do you normally get oil for the heater? and how much does it cost? never had oil heater before.

These are brilliant for heating a room. Brilliant for when everyone is just in one room, or you in your own and dont need to heat the entire house. I usually have mine on the 1kw setting and that is perfect for heating most rooms.

You do not actually fill this heater with oil, it is a sealed unit with oil already inside.

You must be kidding... is it disposable heater then... oil finished through it out???

I think that it is already filled with oil, you plug it into the mains and this heats the oil up inside, the oil then stays hot for longer than water would which reduces the cost of running this.
Thats the way I think it works but I am sure if I am wrong someone will correct me.

it's not disposable

Great price for a large oil heater.
I used to use the small 600w versions for our static caravan as I found them very effective, and economical, and even with 2, was well within our 16amp supply.This is perfect timing, as I could do with one for at home to give the storage heaters a boost (in small village, so no gas to our house).And of course remember these don't use the selected heat setting continuously, as it has a thermostat, so uses slightly less per hour, than you'd expect.Personally I highly recommend oil fill heaters for building up lasting heat in a room, economically, however if you want something more instant, then a fan heater is better, but generally cost more to run at about 2-3KW

I know this heater will got hot, but have some more heat! thanks OP

frost1979 you're right it comes filled with oil which you don't need to change or anything.....

WHAT! ..LMAO

I've had an oil filled radiator for a few years - they are great for winter nghts! I usually keep mine on throughout the night, as it only comes on when temp drops.

I bought one of these from screwfix about 2 months ago. I think they were actually £22.99 then. They're not bad quality. Not great - but not bad. I stuck mine in my workshop (4m x 4m) and it does a good job of keeping the cold out.

Oh - it's incorrectly marked as having 3 heat settings. It's really only got 2 (full stun or half). But that's just for how quickly you need the room to warm up. The thermostat does the rest.

Been toying with the idea of an oil radiator for a while now. Can't keep relying on the electric one, because it costs too much.

This is great.

Oh dear... oh dear...

It's OIL FILLED. It works off electrickery, you plug it in and switch it on.

I do hope a couple of people on here are taking the mickey!

what is economical

1. Keeping you home heating on and setting it to a specific temp.

or

2. Keeping home heating on to low temp (12°C) and keeping this heater on where we all are mostly sitting?

I think its 2 but want to know other's views?

I really like the flat panel ones, you fit them to a wall flush like a radiator.

Some of the better flush flat panels even have oil in them as well.

If you can find them cheap, tell me.

why not get this one delivered for same price ? cheaper with cashback ...

I bought one of their clearance ones a few months ago, wasn't impressed. The thermal cut out meant it never even got near the thermostat setting. Took it back as it wasn't really doing what it was sold as. Looks similar to this one.

Quick warning, once ordered you can't cancel the order with screwfix as you can with amazon and others, even if it's only 30 seconds later

But you can refuse delivery. You also cannot add anything to an order once placed as well.

Screwfix is usually next day delivery. Pixmania are not in the UK.

Good deal but think I'm gonna wait for the Lidl one next Monday posted here:

hotukdeals.com/dea…905

Costs £29.99 but is 2.5KW with a 0.5KW fan heater. It also has a 3 year warranty. Buying something cheap to take the cost over £30 should enable me to use the £5 voucher posted below for a 45p outlay (meaning final cost will be around £26 after price of newspaper and purchase to go over £30 threshold):

i hv the same one and it works perfect easy to use n heats the room quickly ..:-)

3kw is like running a tumble dryer...Loads of money... so boost then turn down.

Ahujamit: it's hard to answer such questions, you can expect costs/month … Ahujamit: it's hard to answer such questions, you can expect costs/month between £10-20£ or even more(or less) depending on the weather, on the size of the room, and on how much you leave it on. Electricity price here where I live is 14.6/unit, I'm comfortably heating a small room for night, and it costs £15/month. It's indeed better to have it on in the room you are mostly are, but again it depends on the room size. You really have to try it to see what is cheaper. If you have gas heating, I wouldn't recommend it tho.People say oil filled radiators are more effective, that's plain bulls*it, all electric heater is 100% effective, they directly convert electricity to heat. The oil retains heat more, thats true. Which also means it heats the room less. Only difference is, that oil heaters are better on for longer times, because it gives even heat, but again you can do the same with any other radiator with thermostat...



i have gas heating which will not save me much then!

Pretty much right, but being the boring physicist oil actually has about half (or less depending on type) the specific heat capacity of water so it'll take half the time to get to the required temperature for the same amount of 'money in'. This means you'd get heat into the room faster than using water. Eventually water would then have more stored energy to keep passing into the room once you've switched it off but of course you've missed out on that when heating it up in the first place - and you've paid for it whatever. There's also corrosion and expansion of the liquid to consider - oil isn't famous for rotting metal.

If u want a massive electric bill ,as these eat electric .:D

I bought one of these this evening and will be taking it straight back in the morning for this exact reason. The thermal cut-out activates way before the thermostat has a chance to regulate the temperature. In effect you can only use a thermostat setting of up to 3 on a scale of 1-7. Useless.

I'm afraid it saves you absolutely no money at all, because the extra heat given out after it is switched off is EXACTLY cancelled out by the time it takes to warm up. All electric heaters give out the same amount of heat per unit electricity put in, It's basic physics - conservation of energy.

I got the lidl one last year, excellent heater, infact i have it on at this very moment.
I only ever use the lowest setting, occasional the second setting but thats only if I use it in a bigger room, generally the first setting is fine, I would recommend these to anyone.

Bought one on Friday. Returned it today. Pile of junk, you can hear the thermostat rattle round in it, which is good to know becuase as far as I can discern the thermostat has no benefit.

Gave of exactly sod all heat as well, which is also good if your worried about the electricity costs. I am more worried about the toesies being coldsies cost.

I HAVE A OIL FILLED RADIATOR I TINK ITS GREAT BUT TH E THERMO SWITCH HAS BURNED OUT CAN ANYONE TELL ME WERE I CAN GET A NEW ONE
