    Hi all

    I work from home and winter is almost upon us. I don't want to heat the whole house all day when I spent 8 hours in my office.

    What are the best options? I've looked at Dyson (at £400-£550) and they seem expensive.

    Cheers

    Just a small oil filled radiator works for me (in a shed office)... Up to temp in no time. Cost about 40 quid from DIY shop.

    Seconded. These throw out a lot of heat for their size.

    New dimplex stuff is very good, I have two wall mounted convector heaters in my cabin. They are very good the controls are excellent with lots of timers and such. They also shut off if they sense a breeze such as when the kids leave the door wide open rather than hearing the planet :p

    Small room - 1000W should be fine. Get one which allows you to run it at 500W or 1000W.

    You should be able to get one with for under £50, though you can get ones with a timer for £5-£10 more if you want it to come on automatically.
