Oil Filled Radiater

Post by Polly on Fri 10 Feb 2017 - 18:17

hia

Now this may sound daft but I'm going to ask

800wat oil filled radiator 

Mini 800wat oil filled radiator 

I have the normal size one in the M/H
I am thinking of a mini one as it will fit nicely between the drivers and passengers seat and easier for storage

Now here's the punch line
Because they are different in size big and little 
Would the little give as much heat out as the big one?
Do they do the same job

Polly....it all about the kw per hour.....1000w = 1kw...I would say if leaving the electrical heating on unattended I would say the oiled filled radiator for preference...if it is to use while you are in the van with the electrcal heating on  I would go for a fan heater...... fan heaters come in various watt sizes...some are just 2000w (2kw ph)...but most are 1000 / 2000 w so you could have it on either setting plus they normally have it so you can just have it on cool fan no heat using about 13w.....some come without thermostat and some with temperature thermostat....the latter with thermostat is the better one....there also some fan heaters (although not many) come 800 / 1500 w.....
so to answer your question the 800w oil filled radiator will use less electric than a 1000w fan heater....but we find the fan warms the van up more quickly...
Now I have this one see link below....there are many all of the same model with different names on...Mine uses 25w on the 1st setting cool / cold,.. and 912w the second warm setting and 1780w on the 3rd hot setting (even it says its 2000w on the instructions / box ??? most electrical items it is not what they actually use)...we find ours very good ours as Daewoo brand name on ours....we paid about £10.00 at Parkrose pottery  Bridlington at Christmas this one just gone 2015/2016....fan heater will be lighter


2000W 2KW Portable Silent Electric Fan Heater Hot & Cold Thermostat Flat Upright

We actually purchased a new 800w oil filled rad in Portugal 2 years ago...after several days of use we sold it and went back to the fan heater... used the fan heater on the second 900w/1000w setting...warmed the van much quicker...BUT only used it while we was in, and turned it off at bedtime..
so if you are using it unattended or asleep....use the oil rad

Our oil rad ( that we resold ) was like this one.

Polly I think at your home the electric will be around 11.5 pence per kW (1000w)average...unless you are on a special deal...
if you are out and have already paid for electric in with the camp price all should be ok... 

if the campsite is rated at 13 amp then ok up to around 2990w / 3120 watts....if the site is rated at 16 amp then ok up to around 3600w / 3840 watts....BUT IF THE SITE IS RATED AT 6 AMP then only ok to around 1380 watts max

What about halogen heaters, anyone tried these, we have used a dimplex convector panel heater 2kw thermostatic control although very warm we find the heat is quite a damp heat when the outside conditions are cold & damp.
so our conclusion is that the gas blown air is still the best.

Yes tried one at home....it was not for us...maybe it is for others......we found if you positioned yourself about a 1' to 2 feet away it would burn you and your front..your back would be COLD.. for what ever the reason it never seemed to warm up the air in the room.. it seemed as if the heat was a directed beam...just our views...But I agree with the blown air...that is why I said the electric fan heater...it moves the warm around the van quicker...........

Polly just a quick bit of info...
I have tried many small 1kw / 2kw electric thermostatic controlled fan heaters over the years...

Some have been very good....

odd ones have been as good as useless / crap on the 1kw setting...more like cool air instead of warm air
 It all depends on the dual heating element coil fitted inside.
 if you get one ask them to plug it in to try it out !! on all settings

Polly if you ever wanted to turn you existing heater into a temperature controlled thermostatic radiator heater...have a look at these...
