polglase: Is the flame displayed in the LCD screen (instead of the snowflake which is the default)?
apm45: I found leaving set at 16 degrees worked well, the room felt a bit warmer than that to me, possibly because the heatermate was at floor level?
Procrastination eventually pays off.
StarBlazer: I would buy 3 tomorrow if they had an external probe or remote sensor. The problem is that all but one of my usable sockets in the bedrooms are either behind furniture or curtains and so would not be able to record an accurate temperature (no airflow). I may ask them again if they are planning a remote version.
apm45: I used it again last night, but this time with the heater set to 2kw. Again it worked well, although this time the energy usage looked quite different, with shorter more intense bursts. The red lines on the picture below show the heater turning on and off throughout the last two nights. I can't really compare if either is more energy efficient as last night was not as cold as the night before. I can't see any reason why there should be a difference though. I just thought it was interesting to show how well the heatermate works.
Skolink: Thanks for posting that, it is interesting. It doesn't actually show if the Heatermate works well or not, you would need to log the room temperature and see how much it varies below and above the set temperature. I'd be particularly interested to see it with a large oil fin or something else with large thermal mass.
LazyDr: I'd be keen on two please! Live in the Tron. How much did they end up costing last time?
