    Hey guys, my room is very cold. It gets to as low as 6 degrees at night but I was wondering if there was any heaters that I could leave on throughout the night to keep the room at a set temperature that would actually make it warm! My house is very old & has no insulation. Also, the radiators do not circulate heat through the room...

    IMO small oil filled radiator. will be thermostatically controlled and generally shouldn't get hotter than about 70 Celsius on it's surface - so it can't set fire to your room like the fiercer types of heater can.

    Probably worth looking into thermal vests and hot water bottle and checking for any draughts coming through your room.

    I forgot to mention, I do have a baby so it would need to be warm regardless as i dont want him getting sick but thank you; I will be looking into that heater! I do have a draught coming from my windows so I bought a draught kit so hopefully it shouldn't be as cold!!

    Right, IMO it'd be suitable for warming a baby room. I'd pick one up from screwfix where I think you get better value for money but you can get them from argos, large Tescos etc...
    screwfix usually has a decent number of customer reviews on it's website.written by people who aren't total morons so you can make your own assessment on it's suitability.

    electric heating like oil filled radiators comes with higher energy costs than central heating so the ideal thing would be to get the existing system working properly before too long.
