    Interesting to see none of the photos actually have a power cable.

    Damn, just bought the 1.5kw from TGG last week for $125 :(

    Not enough stock for cart - I only wanted 1.

    OOS already?

    Can't price match?

    Kmart is selling the same type of heater for $80 or $55

      Except this one is oil free

        Which doesn't mean anything really. These things chew power just like a fan heater. If you can afford get split system reverse cycle, it'll use 20% of the power this does.

          Well, it does potentially someone wants to move away from using non-renewable resources, although I'm not sure what is in there if it's not oil. it also might be something that conducts heat faster than oil, who knows as it's not explained. I'm not saying it's better, I'm just saying it's potentialy not comparable to the kmart heaters that were linked

          Yes and no.

          They have the same power usage of a fan heater, however the oil is heated up, which then heats up the air. This results in overall lower power consumption over a night of useage to maintain temp - compared to a fan heater.

            @The Hobo: Not at all. When it's heating the oil, there's a time delay before the air is heated. Then when it's off, the oil remains hot for some time after.

            The benefit of oil heater compared to a fan heater is silent operation and less fluctuation of temperature in the room, but certainly no more efficient than a fan heater.

            There no free energy as such.

            No, the power consumption over a period of time to maintain a fixed temperature is exactly the same - it doesn't matter whether there is oil, a fan, or a chicken leg attached to your electric heater. They're all 100% efficient because all of the electrical energy is converted to heat.

            If it takes a total of 7.9KW of heat energy to maintain your room temp overnight, then it takes a total of 7.9KW of heat energy to maintain your room temp overnight 👍

        What a pathetic "review". The Kmart heater is probably only 1100w compared to the others which are probably 2400w. I swear to god did nobody else pass year 7 physics in this country? Newsflash, electric heaters like this are 100% efficient. Want more heat? Get a more powerful heater.

    Does it have a timer function?

      yeah - see the dial on the front? That'd be the timer.

    •  

      yes.. it does have a timer

      Blessed be the tech-savvy people who know what the dial in a photo of a heater is and don't neg those seeing no timer is mentioned in the product description ask perfectly valid questions.

    Ha. My wife insisted on buying 2 of these at great expense a few years back.
    That was supposedly because it was gentle heating for the kids
    Hardly used them because they were so slow and you had to plan ahead or use the timer (and then remember to switch it off for those days you didn't want it on)
    She then sold them on gumtree for like all of $20.

    This is wrong.

    If the heater is drawing 2400w from the mains, then it's putting 2400w into the room - it cannot be more energy efficient than this without breaking the laws of physics.

      I think the "explanation" here is that this particular heater is supposed to heat up quicker, so your room heats up quicker and you don't have to run it as long.

      Which, in practice, is just marketing BS. Buy yourself a fan heater if you need instant heat.
