Can a space heater really help you save money on your winter heating costs? This is one of those seemingly age-old questions that never seem to get a straight response. In short, the answer is yes—but you should follow a few important guidelines in order to get the most savings. Otherwise, you could actually end up increasing your heating costs, and nobody wants that! With winter in full swing and many Americans shivering in their socks looking for more frugal ways to stay warm, here are a few tips to help you save on heating costs with a portable space heater.
Turn Down the Thermostat
One of the main advantages of using a space heater, other than boosting your coziness and warmth, is that it helps offset the costly operation of your central heating system. That is, as long as you remember to turn down your thermostat. Typically, for each degree you lower your thermostat, you’ll save 3% on your heating costs. Researchers at the Good Housekeeping Institute recently put this strategy to the test and found that you can save as much as $200 if you lower your thermostat to 62 degrees F and supplement your room with a space heater.

For many, the winter season means delicious baked goods, holiday time with family, and perfect weather for a cup of apple cider or a bowl of chili. For others it means months of unpleasant frosty weather, the constant hassle of layers and layers of clothes, and an ever-increasing electric bill.
Although there isn’t much we can do about the weather outside, we can keep warm inside while saving on heating costs with the new Dyson heater. The Dyson Hot is an innovative tower heater designed to quickly heat your space without distributing unhealthy allergens.

The holidays are here! It’s the season for rockin’ holiday parties, savory meals, decadent sweets, finding (or receiving!) that perfect gift, and most importantly, cherishing the time we spend with family and friends. While many of us look forward to the holidays with sparks in our eyes, others—namely the estimated 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies—aren’t always so keen.
Too often, the family Christmas tree, a beacon of holiday light and memories, quickly becomes your sneeze-inducing enemy. Your Aunt’s traditional walnut-sprinkled fruitcake has you racing in the other direction. And while all those scented candles add a wonderful fireside ambiance to any space, for you, they’re a stifling headache and a case of the sniffles waiting to happen.
With so many potential allergy triggers stacking up around you, it can be tough to share in the excitement of the season. To help you avoid the wrath of this season’s allergy traps, start with these helpful tips:

We’re only one month into the beautiful Fall season and half of the U.S. is already seeing chilly, windy weather that feels more like winter. Yesterday, with the low here in the mid-30s, I had to pull out my old faithful space heater for the first time since January and boy was it a lifesaver! Portable heaters are great for days when it’s not cold enough to run your central heating unit. They also serve as an efficient source of supplemental heat to your central system, leading to significant savings on rising energy costs.
There are so many benefits of using a personal space heater; I could go on and on. So if you don’t already have one, there’s no time like the present. Just in time for cool Fall nights, our most popular space heaters from top brands are on sale for up to 25% off the original price now through October 31st.

If you’ve been looking for an air purifier lately, you may have noticed several that include ionizers. Though they’re beginning to appear practically everywhere, ionizers are common features found in air purifiers, fans and air circulators, heaters, and swamp coolers. But what, exactly, is an ionizer—and why should you invest in a product with one?
In short, ionizers emit ions—charged particles—to help an air purifier’s filters trap contaminants in your indoor environment. Many of our air purifiers, such as the Honeywell HFD-120-Q Tower air purifier, now feature ionizers to capture particles that otherwise would be too small to filter out. This is extremely helpful if you have allergies, asthma, or chemical sensitivities, as ionic air purifiers more effectively remove pollutants ranging from pollen, mold, dust, and pet dander to viruses, smoke, odors, and chemical toxins.
But in addition to boosting air quality, ionic air purifiers also reduce static electricity, improve your mood, and help ward off fatigue. So how can such a simple mechanism have so many positive effects?

When the weather forecast called for a wintry mix on January 9, like many Atlantans, I sat back and eagerly anticipated a snow day. I was definitely not prepared for multiple days of being stuck in my house. However, one positive outcome has resulted from what some are calling “Snowpocalypse”. Choosing a Vornado heater to keep my bedroom warm and toasty was a great decision. Continue reading

I’m pretty sure that my desk is located in some bitterly cold northern land. Although I see my co-workers using fans during the warm summer months and sitting comfortably jacketless during the cooler months, I’m not convinced that their desks are really in the same office building as mine. I am always cold. So when it’s time to test drive desk heaters, I am the first to volunteer. Recently, I tried out the QMark 202SLB Radiant Under Desk Heater.
