When on EHU it has to be the convector, I like the fact that it has a thermostat so you don't have to get out of bed to turn it on or off, up or down. It is also silent running and lightweight to carry.
Helen forgot to mention that she is quite fond of a gas lantern which will knock out in the region of 800w.
Quite enough to take a gentle chill off.
Likewise I have two Tilley Lamps as well as the heat I like the gentle yellowness to the illumination.
Not bothered about the gentle(sic?) aroma of paraffin but others might.
Recently acquired a gas heater of up to 4Kw I only really wanted a 2Kw one but it arrived at the right price. Rather like a Calor Gas mobile heater but without the carrying capacity for the gas bottle it's only 3" deep.
No I'm not going to use it at 4Kw in the Dandy and yes I've got a carbon monoxide alarm.
I do think though the brightest idea I heard was that of using an electric blanket and mine might just make an outing.
Mike didn't realise you have solid fuel at home, did a missive on cheap fuel for Phoenix I'll PM to you.
