Dunelm shoppers rave about £14 heater that heats rooms fast and costs pennies to run

Winter is well and truly here, so you might be looking for some cost-effective ways of keeping warm

Winter has well and truly arrived.

And with energy bills at an all time high, and set to rise even further next year, most of us are desperately searching for cost-effective ways keeping warm over the coming months.

Well, the folks over at Dunelm may have just the thing, as customers are raving about the store's heater.

People are raving about Dunelm's heater.

Priced at just £14, the small fan costs around 68p an hour to run, which could help save people some money.

The store's website reads: "This DF fan heater is ideal for keeping your home warm this winter. With carry handles this heater is easy to manoeuvre around your house.

"This heater comes with a safety cut out, thermostatic controls a full colour box and a plug that is fitted with a 13 AMP fuse."

And those who have bought it already have been praising the nifty little device.

"Bought 2 of these items for a family and they loved it," said one. "The delivery was efficient and pricing is good as well."

Another review read: "Great fan heater, which warms the room quickly, great value and economical to run!"

"Brilliant product - very efficient, convenient and not expensive to warm a room quickly," put a third.

Someone else raved: "It’s an inexpensive little Heater that heats any room in fifteen minute’s and us cheaper to run."

While another added: "The heater is very light and functions very powerfully, it is small so very portable and easy to store away when not in use.

"It does the job quite well, when you don’t want to use the central heating you can keep it close to your for quick warmth and it is designed safe so you can keep it close to you."

And with Christmas fast approaching, you may be having lots of family and friends round, which means a lot of cooking.

And that's why Martin Lewis’s latest advice on the cost of using certain kitchen appliances is so important.

Speaking on his podcast, Martin warned against the use of energy gobbling microwaves, telling listeners: “The problem with the equation for heating equipment is an oven is going to be about 2000W.

"A microwave I believe, from memory, a best guess explanation, a microwave gives you consistent heat whereas an oven is warming up to full temperature and then topping it up so it isn't running at full power the whole time."

He went on: "But if you're doing a jacket potato for 10 minutes it's going to be far cheaper [in the microwave] than doing a single jacket potato in an oven and keeping it on for an hour and a half.

“However if you were doing a full roast dinner and you were cooking many of them, that is where it's probably cheaper than putting five or six jacket potatoes in a microwave because each additional object you put in a microwave, you need to keep it on longer because a microwave just heats the individual object.”
