“ Manufacturer: Sealey / Compact / Alimentation: Electric / 2 Heating Levels / Fan Forced / Thermostat / Carrying Handle „
Having bought many Sealey products before and being impressed with there efficency and reliability when I was in need of emergency heating due to central heating failure when I saw this Sealey Fan Heater on sale for £12.98 I didn't hesitate to pick it up.
I needed something that was easily portable so I only had to buy one heater so we could heat a room and transport it to the bedroom say for half hour before bed easily. The case for this heater is a tough rigid plastic case with a built in carry handle.
There are two dials on the front of the heater, one for selecting either cool, warm or hot for the heat setting, and the second is a thermostat control allowing a room to be kept at a constant temperature.
Performance wise this heater blows out pretty hot air and heats rooms very well, the cold blower function will come in handy in the summer as it spreads around a good amount of air quickly.
The internals of the heater are very basic as with all fan heaters it has an electricaly heated element with a fan to disperse the heat into the room. Despite all the horror stories about the amount of electricity these use, we have a key meter and this was costing us around £5-£7 a week to heat mainly the sitting room, and bathroom in pretty cold conditions. This wasn't as bad as I was expecting.
Overall I can't fault this heater it does what it should, it heats rooms of a small to medium size very quickly indeed and the thermostat really does help to keep the costs of using this heater down. Wouldn't advise using this as a main form of heating for to long as they do dry the air out very quickly and will become expensive in the long run. For short term heating or just that extra little bit of heat they are worth their weight in gold.
