A portable heater that costs pennies to run has people rushing to Dunelm.

With the cost of living crisis, many people are looking for alternatives to their central heating.

Furthermore, with cold spells set to hit the UK, finding cheaper ways to keep warm is becoming more important than ever.

Smaller heaters are a great way of staying cosy for less – with the Dunelm portable heater being the latest example.

Priced at £14 with an hourly running cost of just 68p, shoppers claim it heats up a full room in just fifteen minutes.

There are three settings on this mini-heater – one is a fan and the other two blow out warm air.

Plus, it can be easily transported thanks to its size and excellent carry handles.

The popular heater has racked up plenty of five-star reviews, with one customer describing it as a ‘brilliant product – very efficient and not expensive to warm a room in.’

It’s clear that the shoppers of Dunelm have been blown away by how effective and cheap this mini-heater is.

Somebody else wrote that it’s an ‘inexpensive little heater that heats any room in fifteen minutes,’ while one more added: ‘Great fan heater, which warms the room quickly, great value and economical to run!’

According to Boiler Choice, a 35 kW gas boiler will cost you around 84p to run for an hour, while a 35kW LPG combi boiler costs roughly £2.66 per hour.

Especially if you spend most of your time in one room throughout the day, it’s far more economical to go for a portable heater and target your energy usage.
