Advantages: Instant heat
Disadvantages: Not great for large rooms
I woke up this morning shivering in my bed, this time last week I was sleeping in little shorts the heat was so bad. When I looked out the window this morning I was amazed to see snow covering the cars and rooftops. I grabbed my dressing gown and my cosy slippers and shuffled out to the sitting to only to find my mum had this halogen heater set up in the centre of the room and the central heating on full blast. This heater is fantastic for that instant heat you require on a day like today. It heats up in no time at all while you wait for the radiators to warm. It rotates as well just like a fan and spreads to lovely heat in every direction. That's the reason my mum had in right in the centre of the room to make sure it didn't just heat one spot. The glow of the front panel is enough to warm your bones it looks so cosy. This isn't going to heat a large room on it's own but it will heat a small room no problem so if you have a large room this may not be for you or maybe you could get two. This isn't as extravagant as it may sound as this heater only cost ten pounds that's nothing for the comfort it gives and the reality and piece of mind it gives in the bad weather that as you can see can come at any time of year. In very bad weather the pipes can freeze and that means no central heating and even no hot water bottles. So knowing this heater is always standing by is a great comfort.
The back of this heater heats up quite a bit so do be wary of that. It is nice and compact at only two feet tall and comes in under twenty inches across.
The control buttons are located at the top of the heater and there is a choice of heat levels but but we always put it up high because it only ever comes out on really cold days. The rotation function can also be turned on and off at the top of the heater so if you are snuggled up watching the TV you can have a direct heat rather than it heating the rest of the room. I have heard people say that these type of electric heaters will increase your electricity bill but I haven't heard my parents scream that the bills have suddenly shot through the roof after using this for a few days. You should be careful with your pets and of course children when using this heater like you would with any dangerous appliance or if you had a coal fire lighting.
I was so happy this morning that we had this heater and for only ten pounds I don't think you can go wrong with one of these.
Summary: Instant heat when you need it most
