You've probably heard of the saying; "choosing between heating and eating." It gets the old point across that heating is (apparently) very costly. But this doesn't have to be the case for you or your family this autumn/winter. In this short article, we'll run you through a variety of different heaters to help get you through the autumn and winter months- saving money and energy along the way. With the UK's cost of living crisis threatening to impact everyone this winter, we take a look at ways that you can save your valuable, hard-earned money in the lead-up to Christmas.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is "what type of heater do I want?" This might be the most important question to ask, as; although you may be cost conscious, you also need to consider the size of your space and the size of heater that you need. Have a smaller space or a home office with wallpaper and curtains? You may only need a small space heater or desktop heater. For a working garage or a basement with cold, concrete walls? You'll probably want to have a look at some tower heaters (preferably with oscillation.) In the UK, there are many different types of heaters available however they can be broken down like this:
Type of Heater
Cost per hour
|Fan Heater||42p - £1.00|
|Convector Heater||35p - 79p|
|Bar Fire||35p - 79p|
|Oil Filled Radiator||26p - 61p|
|Halogen Radiator||21p - 47p|
As we can see, the Halogen Radiator looks like the best, right? It'll heat your living room, office space, garage or basement just fine, right? Well, we've also got to talk about another, hidden factor. Efficiency. This is where so many heater customers go wrong with their purchase. Depending on how large your space is, you may need a heavier piece of kit. Like an oscillating tower heater or an efficient ceramic heater. A Senelux Tower Heater, due to its size and oscillating features can kick out enough heat to fill a basement, garage or any other large room and is made with ceramic technology to keep costs low. The in-built ceramic elements work with state of the art heating co-efficient to reduce the overall operations costs whilst remaining portable and highly efficient.
Whilst keeping costs low may seem like the priority, you also need efficiency. What's the point of having a heater that cuts your costs in half if you also need to leave it on for double the time? That's where heater efficiency comes in. If you would like to see more about tower heaters, click here to see one of Senelux's own designs.
