About this deal
Manufacturer Refurbished Includes essential functional accessories to power on and work the unit. Non-essential accessories may NOT be supplied. At 500W, it offers the same power at maximum setting as some of the full-sized heaters above do on minimum. It makes some noise, but not much more than an old disc-driven computer. Apart from the temperature setting, the only other control is a timer to switch it off after up to 12 hours. Electric oil-filled radiators are portable so you can heat only the room you are using to reduce your energy costs. Oil-filled radiator vs central heating
You must notify us of your intent to cancel within 14 Working days of the date you received the item. Please note any quoted time slot is approximate and does not guarantee delivery between those times. Once set up though, the app is actually simple: just a temperature dial, a high/low power switch and a 24-hour timer. These functions are also available using touch-sensitive controls on the heater’s ‘screen’ which go invisible when you’re not using them. So it’s not as complicated as it looks, just more complicated than it needs to be.The radiator starts heating the air already in the room. When the air gets hot it rises and shifts the cold air to the floor. You will have to allow for enough time for the heater to warm up before the space reaches a comfortable temperature, maybe 20-30 minutes. Some are equipped with a timer that you can use to preheat the room prior to use. If the heater is equipped with a thermostat, it can be set to switch off when the oil reaches the desired temperature.
Electric heaters may be essential if you live in one of the four million or so households in the UK that don’t use mains gas heating and are a good solution if you’re just looking to heat one room, or only need to heat in short, sharp bursts. Apart from the thermostat the only controls here are a three-step power dial and an old-fashioned 24-hour timer divided into 15-minute segments that you pull out for ‘on’ and push in for ‘off’. If you have provided us with a mobile telephone number, DPD couriers will send a text message on the day of delivery advising of an approximate time slot for the delivery.Oil filled radiators are brilliant at retaining heat and will continue to emit heat once switched off - this is because oil cools down very slowly.
Oil-filled heaters tend to take longer to heat up than other electrical convection heaters, but keep heating the room longer after they are switched off. In addition, oil-filled heaters are up to 99% energy-efficient because they directly convert all the electric energy into heat energy with barely any losses. Their thermostats, timers and adjustable heating modes consume less than one percent of the heater’s energy needs. What are the disadvantages of oil-filled radiators?

I used an electronic temperature gauge and timer to see how long it took each heater to warm a room by five degrees. I took my readings from 10 feet away to make sure the warmth spread. The performance of any electric heater will depend hugely on room size and insulation, so I tried them all in both small, well-insulated rooms and larger, draughtier rooms. I also took into account weight, portability, ease of use and how good they looked. Start by converting the watts into kilowatts and then multiply by your electricity cost per kWh. You can do this by dividing the watts by 1,000 and then multiplying by the current electricity cost.
