After some advice on electric heaters for an elderly neighbour
Found 6th Jan 2013
I have an elderly neighbour who is after an electric heater for her cold, old house. She has a coal fire but sometimes needs a boost for the bedroom or kitchen. She's been using those halogen heaters but the bars have gone and she need an economical but efficient replacement. I've seen the cheap oil filled radiators (our common room at uni is a porta cabin type box on the roof, we have one of these - they take a while to warm up but once they do the heat is even and seems to stay warm for a while), but I don't know if she'd be better with a fan heater for a super boost. Her main priority is electric bill so any advice would be appreciated.
