Benefits of an oil heater
Low upfront cost
Oil heaters are generally more affordable than other heating options such as gas heaters or reverse cycle air conditioners. With prices starting at around $100, it’s easier to find an option that suits your budget.
An oil-filled heater (also known as oil-filled radiators) consumes less power than other heating options such as electric radiators. The oil inside heats up the fins, and the large surface area of these fins heats up a space efficiently. Plus, it retains heat for some time within a room even when you turn it off.
Oil heaters are also known for their quietness (as there’s no fans needed to operate them), meaning they’re great to use all night for a sound sleep.
Normally found on wheels, oil heaters are easily portable between rooms and spaces.
