    I have one of these in my van, put it in tonight to see how effective it would be. So far it is nice and warm inside and I have a clear windscreen. Every other vehicle in the street is icy.

    We spent the first winter in our cottage with no central heating & I'd ripped all the storage heaters out too!! I bought some of those Halogen heaters & soon realised just how rubbish they are- feel hot if you put your hand in front of it but doesn't disperse any heat. Tried a few others, even an oil filled rad but these in the link above were so much better than all the others. They could heat a room where the others would just heat an area of a room & you have so much control with them too. The thermostat, timer & turbo fan are priceless features for van heating!!

    What if drips of condensation off your van roof dropped in the slotted part? :confused:

    Would you say it's safe Smurf? I'd be a bit edgy about using an electric heater with open grills and possible condensation dropping inside it.

    The heating elements are in the bottom of the unit. Any drips of condensation, even if the missed the grill & hit the element would just sizzle off just like a drop of water hitting a heat ring on an electric cooker.

    That one has no fan or timer though. The timer is really handy- it means you can have it coming on & off at various times throughout the night i.e. it doesn't have to be on all night. The fan is also a bonus, it rapidly moves the hot air around.;)
