    Hi

    Need to get an oil filled heater with timer, any suggestion for one under £80 to heat an area approx 30m2.

    Thank you

    That's a big area to heat. A quick look at some of the 2kwh versions state up to 20m².

    I used to have a Challenge one from Argos to effectively and expensively heat a kitchen

    What temperature do you want to heat the room to?

    Unless it's for frost protection, you're not going to warm an area that size with a single heater.

    Whatever you choose, you may well find that a very basic heater with a plug-in time switch is cheaper and more reliable than one with a built-in timer.

    Thanks. The room will have underfloor heating as the main source, but am thinking of getting one to use as and when needed also need one now to get the plaster to dry.

    Thank you,did see that when I searched, but still not sure if I should go for a better quality one like dimplex with the 3 year warranty or delonghi with the 10 year warranty?

    Surely better off with a fan heater in a room of that size, dimplex make nice stove heaters.
