    Default Best heater for our bedrooms?

    Looking for suggestions on the safest and most economical heater to run throughout the night and keep our rooms heated & comfortable?

    We've got small Noirot electric panel heaters in our bedrooms and they work great. They have a thermostat so only come on once the temperature drops past a certain point.

    Thanks do you need to wall mount the panel heater?
    Are they economical on your power bill?

    No you don't need to wall mount them. Ours is on wheels. The man at Harvey Norman said they are the most efficient power-wise, we also had them at work and left them on permanently cos they are cheap to run. They are expensive to buy though.

    I recently bought panel heaters for all our bedrooms and have them all on wheels. I'm really happy with them. I was told they are more economical to run even compared to the oil heaters. (We used to have oil heaters but they broke) And I think they actually heat the room better than the oil heaters do. I don't keep them on all night though.

    Are there different brands of panel heaters?

    The Noirot ones have good reviews, hope I can purchase locally!

    Yes there are different brands. I have heard the Noirot ones are good with a lifetime warranty you can get them at Good Guys.

    I ended up going with Everdure ones as I needed to buy 3 and they are cheaper with a 7 year warranty. You can set what temp you want them to heat up to, they show what the temp currently is and they have a timer. I don't leave them on all night though and tend to just get up early morning and switch them on. First night we had them I realised how cold our rooms actually get of a night brrrrrr. We have had them about a month and I'm happy with them.
