    All electric heaters have virtually the same efficiency; which is very close to 100%.

    The difference is in the way they distribute their heat.

    Oil filled panels/radiators are slow to heat up - but hold heat longer.

    Fan heaters quickly warm up a room.

    There really is little difference in running costs.

    When buying Electric heater alway makesure to check for the kw. The higher the kw the more the cost of electricity. I have two 500watt heaters at home which effectively as good purchased from Argos.
