Swan "SH1015" 2kw oil-filled radiator with timer £27.95 delivered (using discount code )

Found 21st Oct 2008
as above, the 9 fin radiator has a 24 hour machenical timer, was priced at £34.00, plus £3.95 delivery. But as i was a new customer, and by using the ZG150 disc code, it knocked off £10 from the total price, and it came to £27.95, plus quidco tracks £1.90, so effectively it only cost me £26.05 (remember to select none the extended warranty option) for all in all, which is very reasonable......a so called branded kit ie delongi one with the same spec will easilly cost you the wrong side of £60. Mine came the very next day after i ordered it the night before, it's quiiiiiick

The radiator is brilliant by the way, first day using it and i am already feeling warm towards it , perfect for a small to medium room or in a small conservotry during winter

Sorry link dosn't work! :whistling: Nothing new with Littlehoods!

Total price shouldn't include Quidco as not everyone has it.

I much prefer these oil filled radiators compared to typical convector heaters as they are cheaper to run

No they're not!

A kilowatt of electricity costs the same in whatever appliance you use it. It may appear to give out more heat, as the oil filled radiators physically heat up and exchange the heat by radiation.

Convector heaters cool down as soon as they are switched off BUT they release heat quicker when first turned on.

Two different forms of heating, but a kilowatt of heat costs the same whichever method of heating that you choose.

Thanks for the post scabek

I've added an image and direct link to your post, for help on posting deals, check out the links in my signature.

That link goes to the SH1010 that doesn't have the timer
Here is the one with timer ]http//ww….do

So what is the most efficient of the two?

Convector heaters and oil filled radiators are both virtually 100% efficient. It's like Snowmaes said "Two different forms of heating, but a kilowatt of heat costs the same whichever method of heating that you choose".

This is a widely held view, yet there appears to be no justification for it. Does anyone know of any reliable data comparing running costs of electric heating? Presumably if Snowmaes is right, there won't be any, since the running costs will all be the same.

Hi there

Just tried the link, got all the way to the end of checkout but the ZG150 won't work (I even signed up to have the catalog delivered, which is the 10quid off deal?)

Anything ideas?

Cheers. Heat added
