Re: Extreme Cold

I prefer a compact oil filled radiator. There's no exposed heating elements and much less danger of a fire.

Downside:
They take longer to heat up and the heat is not directed like a heater with exposed electric elements.
Even though the heating element is not exposed, these cannot be used with explosive vapours as I see flash when the thermostat clicks on or off.
