How much does it cost to run an Infrared heater?

This depends on the heat output of the heater. A Tansun Sorrento 1.5kW patio heater uses 1.5kW of power per hour (1500 watts.). 1kW of electricity costs approximately 12 pence per hour ( depending on your supply Tariff) so cost per hour of use = 12p x 1.5kW = 18 pence per hour. This calculation may be applied to all our heaters including Panel Heaters. Panel heaters run on much lower wattages than quartz heaters.
