Aldi is selling a new oil-filled radiator and fan heater for under £30 that costs pennies to run

Aldi is selling two new electric heaters to help curb the cold weather this chilly January – an oil-filled radiator and an electric fan heater – both priced at just under £30 each.

The best electric heaters are a no-brainer buy for the winter season if keeping warm without breaking the bank is your top concern. Not only will the cost of running an electric heater set you back just mere pennies, but their compact size is also ideal for those in need of a discrete and non-disruptive way to keep a house warm in winter.

Aldi's new oil-filled radiator and electric fan heater will be available to shop on the 16th of January in Aldi stores nationwide, and given their super affordable price point, we suspect stock won't last for long.

The Oil Filled Radiator (£29.99) and Electric Fan Heater (£24.99) are the hottest heating buys to keep a watchful eye on this winter season, especially as the oil-filled radiator vs fan heater debate continues to be a hot topic.

Oil-filled radiators and fan heaters are some of the cheapest electric heaters to run, allowing shoppers to save energy at home compared to relying on traditional gas heating.

The Oil Filled Radiator will cost households just 23p per hour to run, while the Electric Fan Heater will cost a slightly higher 29p per hour to run – both highly more affordable than the general cost to run central heating.

Compared to the previous Aldi stove-effect electric heater, these new electric heaters are more than half the price of last year's release, with two different models to choose from depending on personal preference and requirements.

If you're on the hunt for one of the best oil-filled radiators, Aldi's oil-filled radiator is compact and easy to store, featuring an adjustable thermostat and overheat protection, making it a cost-cutting must-have for the winter. The power cord storage allows for easy storage in even the smallest of rooms.

If we had to compare, we'd say that Aldi's oil-filled radiator is most similar to the VonHaus 6 Fin 800W Oil Filled Radiator, which currently retails for £39.99. Therefore, Aldi's £29.99 offer is much more competitive.

On the other hand, the electric fan heater boasts four power settings, adjustable heating angles and tip-over protection, featuring a built-in handle for easy portability from room to room in your home.
