Veito Blade Mini – 1.2kW Carbon Infrared Weatherproof Patio Heater Review
Weighing in at just 1.6kg this small but powerful heater is packed with features. We absolutely love it and we’re sure you will too.
We would expect this heater to provide up to 15sqm of heat. It’s small but with 6000BTUs of output it is incredibly efficient. Most heaters in the 1.5kW range struggle to compete with this.
Bulb Life & Heating Type
This isn’t your standard heater, with carbon infrared elements you can expect this heater to last in excess of 10,000 hours!
Power Settings & Specifics
As with other Veito heaters, they’re built for flexible heating. With 4 heat settings – 600W / 800W / 1000W / 1200 you’re in control of just how much heat you want.
Rated 220-240V 50/60hz and comes with a 3 pin power plug.
This heater must be installed at least 1.8m from the ground and at least 50cm from the ceiling to prevent fires.
Features & Extras
This is where Veito heaters really shine. With an abundance of extras and features you’ll be hard pressed to find any other heaters offering so much for your money.
With a weatherproof rating of IP55 the ingress protection rating for this heater is superb.
Solid rating 5 – protection from dust ingress and below.
Liquid rating 5 – protection from water jets.
It is also supplied with a handy remote control and comes with wall brackets and screws, so you’re ready to install it straight out of the box.
It also has a handy anti-tip protection, to prevent fire should the heater fall off the wall bracket.
We’re also a huge fan of the 2 year warranty that comes as standard with all Veito products.
This heater has a free stand available for £45.00 should wall mounting be unavailable for whatever reason.
Suitable for home and commercial users with existing users claiming usage within the home, conservatory, patio, bathroom, as well as restaurants, bistros, offices, farms and much more. It is an all around heater suitable for everyone!
We’re also amazed at the value for money you’re getting with this superior heater. At a purchase price of £180 (check latest) and assuming full element life of 10,000 hours – this heater will only cost you 1.8p per hour of heat before electricity.
How much does the Veito Mini 1.2kW Heater cost to run?
Once again, as this is a small yet powerful heater, you’re getting brilliant value for money even when running it!
Based on an average price of 14.7p per kWh this heater will cost you as follows:
Heater running costs:
Full Power (1200W) – 1.2kW x 1 hour = 1.2 kWh x 14.7p = 17.64p (per hour)
Power Setting 2 (1000W) – 1.0kW x 1 hour = 1.0 kWh x 14.7p = 14.7p (per hour)
Power Setting 3 (800W) – 0.8kW x 1 hour = 0.8 kWh x 14.7p = 11.76p (per hour)
Low Power (600W) – 0.6kW x 1 hour = 0.6 kWh x 14.7p = 8.82p (per hour)
Assuming we were to use this heater for 2 hours hours per day.
Full Power (1200W) – Our monthly electric bill will be £10.58
Power Setting 2 (1000W) – Our monthly electric bill will be £8.82
Power Setting 3 (800W) – Our monthly electric bill will be £7.06
Low Power (600W) – Our monthly electric bill will be £5.29
An astonishingly cheap heater. We would argue this is probably one of the most economical heaters on the market at the moment.
