Anyone got or used a Oil column heater with ceramic fan. Typically the ceramic fan is 400W, sounds a bit feeble, but how good is it? I have a 1200W halogen heater, and on 400W it radiates out a fair bit of heat that makes me not notice how freezing the room truely is. So perhaps a 400W ceramic fan is adequate just to have running right next to me without having oil column on??

Anyone seen this exact model, or a similar version (oil/halogen)...

It Evantair a warehouse only brand in NZ?

Anyone seen this model and know which year it was being sold?

Google searching the model brings up only that auction listing. I cant seem to locate anything on the net similar. Ideally I'd like to know the wattage of each setting, ie oil low/high and halogen?

You need a lot of clear space in front of a radiant heater so it doesn't set fire to things. Not good IMO.

The mica ones are a lot less aggressive with their radiant output, and there is no glow, and lots of convection as well. They are the win for heating I find.
