Let do some easy mat.

Load is 2.2 KW. 220 heater uses 10A (220X10 = 2200 W = 2.2 KW) 110 heaters use 22A (10X22 = 2200 W = 2.2 KW). Electricity companies charge per Kilowatt, so, theoretically, you pay the same.


You pay for the energy you use, and that is measured in kilowatt-hours. So if you have a 2 kW heater it doesn't matter about the voltage - provided the heater is run at its correct voltage as marked on the rear plate. A 2 kW heater uses 2 units (kilowatt-hours) for each hour it is switched on, which costs about £0.30 or $0.30.

IS there an adapter for a 240V heater that will allow you to plug it into two 110V outlets?

No. Sounds like a fairly hazardous thing to try as well. If it's to use a heater in the US, then buy a US heater at a lower cost than any adaptor that might do the job for you. If it's to use on a UK building site that has 110V but doesn't have 240V, it breaks all the rules because you end up with 240V where you shouldn't.
