It's ok discussing hi-tech methods of heating, but someone that is unemployed living in a council house on £74 a week will think you are mad.
Surely it makes much more sense to keep all the radiators on but at a lower level to maintain a certain level of comfort. Otherwise you get cold air in from a colder room every time you open the door. A cold house takes a lot more energy to warm up than one that's kept evenly warm, even at much lower level.
Apologies to Astrania and others - discussion of heaters was too off topic and not useful for those worrying about covering winter energy costs. x
