Oops - I've added that missing link.
Dang, that's a clever little set up idea with the gas water heater, but my water heater is actually outside! There isn't much in the way of closets at all in here.
Yes, I am aware that the heaters are electric and can really add to my electric bill. But I plan on using it as you say - just a bit in the morning, and in the bath while showering, before bed, etc. I like the idea of the programmable timer on the Delonghi for this reason... That way I could have it turn itself off a half hour after I go to bed, for example. I'm not sure, but I think the fan on the Delongi is only for initial heating until actual oil heats up. I'm not sure how well this radiant heat will distribute. Thus my interest in the Vornado with its fan. The bedroom is quite sunny and pleasant during the daytime (which means, of course, it will be blistering during the summer). I'm the sort of person that gets cold easily, so I really want to find the most effective unit.
Thanks for your thoughts.
