Kilkis wrote:Inverter aircon units are a more efficient way of heating a single room than a simple electric heater but cost more to buy and need professional installation. All simple electric heaters put 1 kWh of heat energy into a room for each 1 kWh of electrical energy consumed. An efficient heat pump system will put around 3 to 4 kWh of heat energy into the room for each 1 kWh of electrical energy consumed. If you do opt for a simple electrical heater, fan heaters and oil filled radiators heat the room better than radiant heaters.

And I agree about the gas heaters very damp unless you have plenty of ventilation ....NB see photo of thermostatic valve .. hope this helps .jeff
