Infrared heaters use soft, convection-like heat to efficiently warm a room. These heaters use energy waves that transfer heat once they touch a surface—so place infrared heaters directly at areas of your home that need heat the most. Because there is no combustion in this process, no oxygen is burned and no moisture is removed from the air. Additionally, because infrared waves do not rise to the ceiling like combustible heat does, the floor to ceiling temperature variance is almost nonexistent.
The Honeywell HZ-980 MyEnergySmart Heater comes with a programmable thermostat to warm rooms up to 1,000 square feet and also comes with various energy- (and money-) saving features. Adding supplemental heat to large rooms has never been this customizable and efficient, which is why this model was recently named a top choice by a consumer reporting agency. A programmable timer, digital controls, 2 MyTemp settings, and multiple safety features make it a top choice for customers.
