How much does the Veito Blade S2500 2.5kW heater cost to run?
We’ve calculated the cost to run on all 4 settings below.
The current average per kWh in the U.K is currently 12.2 pence. To get the hourly usage we need to do the following:
Hourly heater running costs:
2.5kW x 1 hour = 2.5 kWh x 12.2p = 30.5p
2kW x 1 hour = 2 kWh x 12.2p = 24.4p
1.5kW x 1 hour = 1.5 kWh x 12.2p = 18.3p
1kW x 1 hour = 1 kWh x 12.2p = 12.2p
As this is targeted to the commercial market we’ve assumed 5 hours of usage per day in the below calculations.
(2500W) our monthly electric bill will be £45.75.
(2000W) our monthly electric bill will be £36.60.
(1500W) our monthly electric bill will be £27.45.
(1000W) our monthly electric bill will be £18.30.
As you can see this is an incredibly efficient patio heater. If we were to use it for just 5 hours a day, then we’d expect the element to last over 5 years before needing a replacement.
