It's all a matter of perspective, though. If you can't find a heater locally for some reason, or they're crazy expensive, which is more expensive: An inexpensive heater that costs 2x normal because of import taxes, or the local purchase? Twice the normal price still isn't all that bad when the item in question is truly inexpensive.

Right. So yeah, if you're looking at double the normal price (due to import taxes), instead of $20 you're looking at $40, worst case (more likely $30, I'd think)? An annoying amount of money to spend on a small heater, to be sure, but hopefully $40 isn't going to break the bank. It's not like we're talking hundreds of dollars here.
