Mine is a couple of months older. No problems. By the looks of it they must have used a far higher thermostat setting than what we use.

These oil filled heaters are better for health also as they dont consume the oxygen of the room to generate heat and are also practically fire proof-highly recommended by doctors....

How does a heater consume oxygen?

Unlike open fire the heat is generated by electrical resistance in the element and not by burning fuel (which consumes oxygen). Heaters reduce the relative humidity so the air feels extremely dry.

Well Aroy you are right n I was wrong-these heaters dont consume oxygen to produce heat,only when they heat up the impurities on them like dust hair etc burn up consuming o2,and not to mention the fire hazard.

Reviving this old thread. Has anyone experienced 'Glen' oil radiators. I am in the market for one and am confused between Glen and Usha. Tilted towards Glen as its offering a 3 yr warranty compared to 1 yr by usha

I am using a Westinghouse brand Oil filled heater since last 3 years in Bangalore. Its good , heats quicker based on settings/Wattage you chose, and manual thermostat to decide the room temp. Its manufactured by a haryana company under Westinghouse brand. Its safe and no risks for kids as there are fins and air passing thru the fins heats up the room. When I was looking for Oil heater I saw the Usha one online, preferred Westing house at that time, but as far as I remember both looks same in design, hence I presume the manufacturer may be one, usha may be marketing it.
