Five Tips for Buying a Heater
Choosing a space heater is a matter of sifting through a bewildering array of types, power ratings, and fuel sources. Let's break it down a little to make the process easier.
What are the different types of space heaters?

Radiant heaters emit infrared radiation that directly warms the objects in front of the heaters (rather than the surrounding air). If you only need heat by a desk or in a small section of a room, a radiant heater is quiet and will use very little power.
Forced-air heaters use a fan to blow air that has been warmed by metal or ceramic heating elements. A forced-air heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but can be noisy.
Convection heaters draw cold air from the floor; the air is warmed by heating coils and emitted from the top of the heater. A convection heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but also can be noisy.
Radiators work by heating oil enclosed in a reservoir, gradually heating the surrounding air. If heating speed isn't an issue, you might want to opt for a radiator. These are extremely quiet and effective--perfect for bedrooms.
Should I buy an electric or a combustion model?
If you want a heater that will be available in emergencies, or that can heat areas larger than a single room, choose a "combustion" model--one that is powered by a gas or fuel like propane, kerosene, natural gas, or diesel. Which fuel type you choose depends largely on convenience and local availability. For example, diesel would be appropriate for a heater you take with you on long car trips.
How powerful a heater do I need?
Heaters are rated by BTU, which stands for British Thermal Unit (the amount of heat needed to heat one pound of water by 1 degree F). To find out how many BTU you need:

Calculate the volume of the space to be heated by multiplying square footage by height.
Multiply that number by 4 if your insulation is poor, 3 if it's average, or 2 if it's good.
The resulting number is a ballpark figure for how many BTU you'll need.
Do space heaters cost a lot to operate?
As a general rule, electric space heaters are more expensive to use than combustion models. To ensure energy efficiency, a thermostat is a must-have feature for any heater. For radiant heaters, models with a 360 degree heating surface can heat larger spaces. If you need a forced-air heater, models with ceramic elements tend to be more efficient.
Are space heaters a fire hazard?
Space heaters are implicated in about 25,000 residential fires every year. To ensure proper safety, always follow the manufacturer's usage instructions and fill out the warranty card to receive informational updates from the manufacturer. Also, look for extra safety features such as an automatic shutoff switch that can shut down the unit if, for example, it gets upended. In addition, choose a model where the heating element is adequately enclosed within the unit.

Hey, al! Just a quick update on my photography situation.

I want to say first that not taking any pictures for almost half a year is torture. I was going through some “meh” periods before, but this draught of photo-less-ness has given me a real thirst for taking pictures.

I’ve recently gotten a job, and once I get some immediate expenses taken care of, I’m aiming to buy a lens for my D40. If nothing unexpected comes up (my computer dies for instance or the dollar collapses) I should be shooting again sometime this Summer.

I would like to ask if anyone knows of a place online they would trust to buy used lenses from. I’m not too picky about buying new ones right now, I just need some glass period.

Thanks, everyone!

Okay, about this photo. This was taken back at a Redner’s gas station. Redner’s is a local chain of grocery stores and gas stations. If I remember correctly, I was down here with my father and brother to buy some kerosene for our heater. We later regretted it, we found out they dye their kerosene here, which is not good for our heater. Live and learn.

Cost of replacement $550.00 This water heater had a tag on it dated 1989. I realize this is the date of mfg. but it is close (say a year or two) to the actual install date. If that is correct, this water heater has been in used for 18-20 years. Not bad. I hope the new one lasts as long.

This was rather a shock this morning, after a freezing night without electricity. There is no gas-supply in many of these Norfolk villages, so most homes are all-electric . . . with 90% of us relying on storage-heaters which are re-charged every night.
Long power-cuts are catastrophic, especially for those with no back-up systems.
Alastair and I, at the chapel, have two LPG-mobile heaters, which take over when the power fails !!
