Im doing a bit of the old DIY, mainly for summat to do really

Ive removed the central heating radiators in the room, to strip and repaper the walls

filled and smoothed some of the bits I deemed a bit rough and where the scraper-steamer took a bit more plaster off than I had hoped for, now just second filling to get the levels right

being as its chilly in there, Ive put a halogen heater on , though it dont seem to warm the room up much, iffin Im standing near it, I can feel the warmth on my legs-body, but it dont seem to do much else

Ive heard that this is a thing with them, is it true or what ?

should I sack it off and get the oil filled mobile radiator out the shed instead

Thats the Boys mate, the one we got is Gas and electric, bit smaller but as Powerful, it dont half throw some heat out, think it was about 120 nicker.
Remember setting one up in back of transit when on a porch rendering job and had no bait cabin. Soon warned up. Was smaller that that.
