All Heating Appliances Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
New person only posting roov deals.....
I wish it was near me(like even on the same island would have done!), there has to be a plumber out there who would buy the lot at that price.
could be worse, could be a back boiler :) :)
It’s still burning natural gas and creating CO2. A slightly more efficient boiler is still bad news for the environment. Supporting this and similar schemes would be far better https://www.hotwater.org.uk/homeowners-could-save-up-to-240-a-year-using-excess-solar-energy-to-heat-their-hot-water-says-hwa/ Compare an electric car to a more efficient Diesel engine.
Surely encouraging people to fit more energy efficient boilers would be part of a Green plan though. Fitting double glazing or cavity wall insulation is included, so a boiler that could use less energy should be too. We're having a Hive system added at the same time to help further I hope, maybe even the Hive thermostats to do a bit more.
Great price if you live in Swindon!
I went to Costco not knowing this is online only deal. Atleast thats what they have told me there. It was a massive queue outside Croydon store.
Also make sure they have some sort of block in the tube that connects the flow and return. As without this can cause problems of the hot water taking the path of least resistance across the bottom of the rad and not actually circulating through the rad
Vertical radiators aren’t great, if you don’t have space etc then I guess you have to get one though
Got three of these that we've just had put up in a house we're renovating. Can't say much to the effectiveness of them but they certainly look the part. Disagree with the comment above implying you want as big a radiator as you can get away with to heat a room.
For anyone insisting on designer looks, excellent value.
These might have a slight benefit on cold air setting if it is sitting on your desk directly in front of your face but for heating I would invest in a couple of large candles instead.
Showing as £10 on the link.
A bargain! These look identical to the Daewoo fan heaters we bought last year from Home Bargains for £10. They can probably be used as a normal fan too (without heat setting) to cool down in the current heat :)
Collect instore available 1 mile from my home. I can't get there because my front left tyre has delaminated (topical comment).
Out of stock at all my local stores (there appear to be only 4 stores in Northern Ireland - so none in Northern Ireland!)
On the contrary, for £3 it was worth a look at. Having said that, obviously the one I received was faulty but looking at a number of other reviews on Amazon people have reported it sparking and going up in smoke. As good a deal as it may be, I'm sure we can all agree that we don't want our house to burn down.
Voltage is "harmonised" throughout Europe, so it will work safely in the UK, assuming you use the correct fuse. This is why UK to EU adaptors work fine abroad, without a need for an inverter or converter. Not sure about the wiring being too close to the heating element as I didn't buy one. I'm wondering why you purchased it, as it doesn't sound like you were that confident about it to begin with.
I'm aware you stated it was an eu plug. I'm not bothered by that. Just curious as to if its illegal :/ the voltage is different in the uk, so could be a fire hazard. If so, amazon shouldnt be selling it really... no matter how cheap. Also, upon further inspection, the wiring is far to close to the heating element. That can't be good.
I stated in bold at the top of the post that this has an EU plug and assumed purchasers would bear that in mind. As for legalities, not sure, but that would take care of a big chunk of Amazon Warehouse's inventory. Personally I'd complain, get a refund, move on to the next purchase.
Mine arrived and broke straight away 🙃 can I ask if any one knows if its illegal to sell eu plugs in the UK without an adaptor?
Expired - It changed to £139.99 whilst I was confirming with Tado that it was compatible... so I ordered from Amazon for £135
Why not sell the Nest and just use the Tado. Using Nest and Tado TRVs would not work very well at all. The TRVs would not be able to turn the heating on and thats the point of them. You might as well just use normal wax based TRVs and set them up for rooms that get too hot.
I don't need to thermostat (have nest already) but interested in the two TRV's for my radiator. With what I get in this deal - can I just sell use the 2 TRV's without connecting a thermostat? I can try to sell the thermostat on ebay to recoup some costs
Thanks @gary333 on the ball as always when comes to the tado deals. I'm just trying to be frugal Scotsman lol
If you don’t want the TRVs you might find other kit which is cheaper just as useful. Tado is all about the TRVs.
hope it helps
Bought two at Brooklands Weybridge
Anyone know the barcode for this??
£34.99 in Northwich or would have had 🤞
Had more than 6 years use from one but paid more!! Heat added, great buy and handy remote.
Heat, got one a few years back, same price still going strong :)
Thought this was a PS5.
Delivery £7 but you don't mind when you think you are getting a radiator like I did. But no I got an extension to the radiator that would not have cost £7 postage! Not a Hot deal !!!
Only a clip on rail for an existing rad.......
The amount of people that haven’t read the comments thinking it was a radiator
Thought bathstore went in to administration.
Just the rail NOT the radiator
Sale on at tado.com 40% off. So should be cheaper direct
Still available at box actually, so this shouldnt be expired
That one is expired now. And so is this.
Great price for a great piece of kit
over £10 cheaper here... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tado-smart-radiator-thermostat-starter-kit-v3-with-2-add-on-smart-radiator-thermostats-12499-at-boxebay-3492721
These are manual. A few models are manually adjusted these days so you could turn it on and have the vents closed, though you wouldn’t realistically.
Good point I will try that first and see how I get on (y)
I've not idea, its not my rig. I suppose it could be has you are venting out it might be mixed enough to not matter; might be ways to impove on this, i do think the insulated hose for the out-take should be the first thing to try.
I like this rig and considering it myself but doesn’t the hot air that goes out come straight back in with the second duct being so close ? Or do the fans switch on at different times so guaranteed fresh air from outside comes in...
I've just bought the 9000btu version and I only have one question which I can't find the answer to anywhere... Aren't the air vents on the top meant to open and close automatically on their own? Every other AC unit I've ever used has the air vents opening and closing as needed. Are these ones manual? Thanks folks.
I will take it when visit tesco tomorrow, can you check stock yourself?If yes , then how?
so i can checkstock
What can we do with barcode bro?
Hardly wasting. Electric fires are more or less 100% efficient (y)
Yes, i had the same setup, i purchased this kit, then an Extension when i found it at £50 in the sale, plus another 6 smart radiator stats when they were at £69 a pair. It isn't a cheap setup by any means, but its definitely good. Temperatures around the house a far better balances, and we aren't heating bedrooms all day unnecessary.
Can anyone help me; I’m looking to upgrade my main thermostat, it’s currently a wireless non-smart one for a combi boiler. Do I just by this kit and the wireless extension?
Similar position here, though I get mine free through Eon. We've never had gas with Eon.
I purchased these from Box last time they were in the sale. I've had the automated features provided free by Apple. No idea how as I was lead to believe this was only for hardware purchased through Apple, i didn't even use teh same login as my Apple ID. Either way, i'm paying no subscription...
That's very positive, many thanks.
May be a load of old poo but these may be worth a look if you can't get to Tesco - Clatronic HL 3378 Fan Heater - £3.86, Like New (only 3 available) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B004540AWU/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all Two heat settings (1000/2000 W max. Cold (ventilator). Indicator light. Overheating protection. High stability. Sturdy carrying handle. Power supply: 220240 V, 50 Hz, max. 18002000 W. HL 3378 Fan Heater Modern and stylish 2KW Upright Fan Heater. 2 heat settings with adjustable thermostat control plus cold blow facility. Safety overheat protection system. Provides fast and efficient heating for homes and offices.
Works well as a fan as well.
I have one from same as this I got from aldi for a tenner, bought as a cheap backup, agree about the thermostat being pants though. Use it to just heat up a room quickly or just to take the chill off in autumn/spring without putting central heating on. Never a bad idea to have a few of these in case your central heating fails in the middle of winter, and at this price why not.
Not much good though if you want T=20°C and it doesn't switch till T(on)=10°C and T(off)=30°C (y)
Had one of these and the cable burst into flames and set the whole thing alight. Ruined my new carpet. Surprisingly an older heater from pre 2000's still working strong.
Cheers. I’ll expire now (y) 🏻
Sold out online
I hope the speaker isn't 1500 Watts!
Nice. I might ask the neighbours to chip in otherwise they will be getting music for free.
Key ring ones are better.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254504916908 I got 10 of them for £2.99 off ebay and seems they are still available.
This is the type you want: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07V2XN5SJ/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_awdb_d2l7EbA0541VS
Don’t buy this design. Rips your fingers apart when the valve is stiff. Buy the ones with the wider flatter handles. These also slip if you ignore the pain and keep turning and wear out quickly.
I buy them to let off steam.
Thanks for sharing @Justin_wells and welcome to the site! <3
Stop being silly , you get a pump with some pools already
Apart from the expense of an electrician to install and sign off (for the average Joe), a cheap residential shower would not be rated for a continuous use duty cycle.
It's expensive, about £10/day, and takes a couple of days for a 12ft pool. Worth it though. Make sure you invest in a decent cover to keep the heat in/ leaves out.
Seems expensive for what is little more than a kettle which costs £10. I think if it was me I would run a 10mm cable from the consumer unit to a commando socket on the back wall of the house. Then I would mount a cheap 9.5kw shower in a box. So 3 times the heating capacity (including a pump) for probably half the amount.
Nothing is guaranteed but corsair do deal with incidental damage on a case by case basis and have been known to reimburse for loss. Peace of mind and all that Jazz.
You wouldn't have cover anyway would you? Incidental damage to other components isn't covered by ANY AIO warranty, used or not, is it?
There are other factors such as less flexibility in their CS teams when things go wrong and Hermes (very slow) if an item is too large for Post Office return. If you can afford to loan them cash for 3 weeks, you will always get your money back with minimal fuss. The days of fantastic deals on the whole have gone, and I have spent a staggering amount of money with them since 2003. I have had some amazing deals, Macbook Pro for £300, but I think they have wised up somewhat. If you have time, there are deals still there, but less frequent compared to the good old days. Whilst officially 30 days warranty, I have never had a refusal when an item has failed after several months. If an item comes with a substantial warranty i.e. Bosch Professional tools, you may find the have been registered already so you have to factor in if making expensive purchases.
Buy new when it comes to Corsair Water Cooling, their complete warranty is unbeatable. They replace any component that fails upon said leakage. C'mon don't buy without it.
Gotta disagree there, I think it is a bit of gamble when purchasing from warehouse but more often than not, I've found a gem. Just a month or so ago I got the 1000XM3's from warehouse for around £140, absolutely mint/new condition. Purchased a couple other things, all better than described.
