To run a 2KW Fan heater ? Can anybody point me to a table(s) that can give a rough estimate of how much these things cost to run ? Or at least tell me how many units they use/hr etc etc ?

Thanks as always

A 2kW fan heater running for one hour will use 2 kW Hours worth of electric.

Find out how much your supplier charges per kW Hour, theres your answer.

Simple really.

Cheers Click, I didn't believe it would be that easy to work out what with all the conversion figures etc etc that seem to be applied to electricity usage.

Cheers Rocky. With the heating up the spout atm, I'm using one of these to just keep the chill off in the front room. Seems to be working great actually. It's kept the room at 63 deg today, even on it's lowest setting icon_smile.gif
