I'd use a dehumidifier, trouble with any form of convected heat is it'll lead to cracking. Plaster needs to dry out or cure slowly

trouble is this time of year you need the heaters for the dehumidifiers to work, just stick an infra red heater centrally in the house and a dehumid in the first rooms you want to decorate, or even the kitchen (prior to units going in)

They would do though wouldn't they...........

Personally I would do as spunky suggests and open the windows, let it dry in it's own time :RpS_thumbup:
 
bought a cheap fan heater from screwfix last winter and used it just to take the edge off the room we were doing. worked as well its the red fan heater in there book about 40 quid off the top of my head
