1. Saves Money: Oil Filled Room Heaters are an ideal option to save money in your electricity bills as they are over 99 percent energy efficient. Almost all the electricity is converted directly into heat which means once the room has become warm, less power will be required meaning more efficiency, less waste of electricity and obviously reduction in bills.
2. Cosy and Warm: Unlike regular heaters, Oil based room heaters do not suck up and dry out the ambient air in a room thus avoiding suffocation, dry skin, rashes etc.
3. Warm for Longer Periods: Since oil heaters are based on the concept of oil heating, they continue to warm the room even after the heater is switched off as hot oil can take a while to cool off.
4. Less Noisy: These heaters are the quietest and produce the least amount of noise even in a smaller room and moreover, you can use these heaters all night.
5. Portable: Presence of caster wheels makes the portability much easier with oil filled room heaters. Simply, move the heater from one room to another depending on where you need it.

Havells OFR – 11Fin 2900 Watt PTC Fan Heater Packaging & Delivery:
- Weight of this heater is close to 17 kgs, hence I was curious to see how Havells will pack and ship this item
- Not to my surprise, packaging of the product was very straightforward and organized, delivery as usual was on time as well
- You will need to remove the plastic sheets wrapped around the heater once you slide it out of the box (be careful due to heavy product)
- In the box, you will see a Warranty Card, User Manual, 1 Main unit, 1 Pair Wheels Set, 1 pair U ring with nut

Havells OFR – 11Fin 2900 Watt PTC Fan Heater Self Test Review:
- Before I tell you the pros and cons of this product, you should know I ordered this heater in 1st week of January’20 for my bedroom which is 12′ X 12′ in size.
- I stay in Delhi-NCR so you know winters are bone-chilling here especially in January
- Once you unbox the heater, you will see that there are 3 speed modes, On/Off switch and a speed knob to adjust the temperature
- This one is an 11 fin heater and fins have been designed in a zigzag manner which means there is more surface area leading to better heating efficiency and can radiate heat in all directions uniformly
- 3 speed settings are set at 1000/1500/2500 watts and fan takes about 400 watts of power
- For the first time, I switched on the heater with the fan OFF and my 12′ X 12′ room was all heated up in around 12-13 minutes, with the fan ON it took only 7-8 minutes
- Thermostat feature made sure temperature stays set uniformly and there is an AUTO CUT to prevent overheating so you do not have to worry about switching the heater on and off
- Best thing I liked about this heater was that it was able to heat the entire room and not just one specific area like other heaters, noise level was at the minimum so you will not be bothered
- Heater does not dry out the room since there is no burning of oxygen in this oil filled radiation heater, thus this heater unlike others is safe for babies and old folks as well
- Just like an AC, you will immediately feel the difference as soon as you come out of the room
- The heater has been filled with HD 320 Grade Oil which is highly refined, this means longer life of the heater
- Length of the cord is good enough around 2 metres and there is a cord storage as well to safely tie the wire
- Just in case if the heater gets tilted, the machine will switch itself automatically
- You will notice 4 wheels at the bottom which is good in case you want the heater to work in different rooms of the house
- About cleaning and maintenance, there is a dust filter that prevents dust from entering the product and it can be cleaned from time to time
- Overall, I loved this heater as it is very subtle when it comes to heating the room with 100% safety.
Havells OFR – 11Fin 2900 Watt PTC Fan Heater has everything that you need in a heater plus the fact oil heaters are a perfect choice if you have a baby in the house as their skin is very delicate and this heater does not dry out the air and can be used even in a closed room.
