its a ceramic heating plate just plugs into ordinary socket a bit like the underfloor heating in effect but gets a lot warmer just for use on race return or very damp weather over a period of time may even use it later part of the week in the early races

thanks for posting pics for me david Wink

425 watt phil not really sure long term it wont be in use frequently only early season towards end of the week or when I feel the atmosphere in the loft is damp after a prolonged period of damp weather I would say no more expensive than the oil heaters its not something I have experimented with yet I am installing a kitchen at home at present and been quite busy but will have a experiment next week when I have made the cover for it ...atb

A credit to the pirate pair I would say Ray. Just wonder how the bloom/dust from the birds etc will effect them & if any changes to the ventilation will be required there. At the end of the day "wink, wink" well worth a punt type of thing in your cold climate I suspect. Cheers.

Hi Guys - and Darren

This is what I have found out about electricity consumption and costs.

Darren see below.

425 watts used for ONE hours will cost around 6.53 pence per hour.

Information from:- https://www.sust-it.net/energy-calculator.php

Not so bad if used wisely.

Somewhere I have two round loft heaters, each around 4 foot long - maybe I will hunt them out.

Could be helpful.

Phil
