Today I bought  a small fan heater from Bunnings. It’s a Heller 1500W Ceramic Heater [ http://heller-usa.com/detail.php?id=163&typ… ] and I also taped up the cracks and air vent in my room in this old house in Melbourne.

Originally I was thinking about oil, aqueous or some other heater type with thermal mass. After chatting to Sam,
it was back towards the fan heaters and fixing those draughts! Unfortunately I will be using a certain amount of electricity and will keep the settings on 750W when using.

So I guess:
A) get the room close to airtight :) e.g. remove draughts, not suffocate yourself
B) get a heater that can punt the hot air around and not just slowly heat one corner etc
C) any one else got suggestions?

Awesome Donal, and put on a Jumper, socks, jacket and smoking slippers, and you will be toasty as! 

Don’t forget that things are also better with the back door shut ;)
