Can you tell me if these tubular heaters are safe to install vertically please?
Unfortunately this item is not designed to operate vertically.
Can these be used in bathrooms
This would be fine for bathroom use as long as the necessary precautions are taken in regards to electrical supply and water sources etc.
Are the expensive to run?
This unit runs off 55 watts therefore it is like running an over grown light bulb, costs are very little.
I want to buy the 2 feet and looking for its running cost if the standard rate of electricity is 13.42KWH pence.
This unit uses 55 watts of electricity per hour so it would cost pence per hour to run. It would be like a light bulb.
Hi, we have a rabbit which we keep in a hutch in a new shed. would the slimline tubular shed heater be safe enough to use to keep the rabbit warm in the winter?
This unit can be installed in a shed with a rabbit. However it must be fitted where the heater and cable is not accessible to the rabbit.
I am looking for some greenhouse heating (6' x 6' twin walled pvu) just to keep frost-tender plants over winter. What size would be required?
Would the 0.5m Slimline tubular heater be appropriate for drying clothes in an airing cupboard with approximately 1x2m footprint?
We would only recommend this usage by fitting a tubular heater guard over the tubular heater for safety purposes, to prevent any drying clothes falling onto it directly.
My new shed is 8x5 ft and its insulated so to house my chest freezer, would this be sufficient to heat the shed during the winter months , and can it be mounted onto the insulation (kingspan)
With the dimensions given, we would recommend the larger size of this product to heat your shed during the winter months. Please follow the link below for further details.
With regards to mounting onto insulation, we would not recommend this. You need something more secure like your shed framework.
Could this be attached to a solar panel and be left on all the time? I have fabrics in my summerhouse/shed and don't want them to become damp. Thank you.
As long as the solar energy is converted to mains UK 230V electricity, and the heater can be plugged into a standard UK 3 pinned plug socket, this heater can be used in this manner. The Tubular Heater can be left on for long periods of time, but as with all electrical appliances, they should be checked regularly to avoid damage.
we have a timber summerhouse at the end of garden.
what would you recommend to keep the chill/damp ff during winter months.
we are pensioners so must be very cheap to run and safe.
This product would be suitable for your requirements. It would cost less than 1p per hour to run.
I am looking for a wall mounted heater I can put in my rabbit shed which turns itself off when the set temperature has been reached. Is the tubular heater suitable?
This tubular heater would be suitable, but we would advise to use a guard over it. Place where the tubular heater and cable are not accessible to the rabbit.
Need to keep cardboard boxes with kitchen units in a 14X12 FT shed over winter. What unit would I need to keep damp away cheaply?
Tubular heaters are designed to keep damp and frost away from sheds and garages, so this would be suitable. Also damp can be controlled with a dehumidifier, so we would also recommend you to use one to take out the moisture in the air.
Ask a question?
Can these heaters be used on a windowsill behind curtains?
The clearance required for this tubular heater from any surface is 30mm to either side and 50mm at the top and the bottom. If the tubular heater has these clearances on the windowsill, this should be suitable, but a guard must be used over it. The surface temperature of these heaters get extremely hot (like a light bulb) so a guard would protect any flammable materials from coming into direct contact.
