I installed a heater for the same reason as James. Been installed for 3 weeks and upper surface has a burnt, brown look. Arlec has told me that warranty is void because electrician hard wired it instead of using a PowerPoint. Will be avoiding cheap chinese made rubbish from Arlec in future

Inexpensive, effective heat
My partner couldn't cope with cold bathroom temperatures in the mornings, so we picked up a cheap Arlec radiant strip heater. I am a career firefighter, so was very reluctant to install such a heater, but am satisfied with the heater *if installed correctly*. It would be easy to skip the instructions and install it too close to a ceiling, or above a bath etc. If you don't know what you're doing, hire a professional- the potential cost is just not worth it. The heater itself is quick to heat up, has the classic pull cord operation with two setti...ngs, and works well for the space (2m x 2m bathroom). It's cheaply made but sturdy enough. The hidden cost is in the price to run 1200w of electricity sucking radiant heating elements - we definitely noticed an increase in the electricity bill. That said, you are paying for a comfort. If you need a quick or inexpensive fix, this could fit the bill quite nicely.
