The rising costs of heating oil, natural gas, and electricity are understandably pushing Americans to look for more economical ways to heat their homes this winter. Using a space heater to save money and energy can be just the solution. Although purchasing an additional heating appliance sounds like a redundant and more expensive choice, the truth is running a portable heater in the rooms you use most frequently and keeping your thermostat at a lower overall heat setting can save quite a bit of energy and cut utility costs.
Our selection of space heaters includes a variety of electric heater types, such as ceramic, convection, infrared, micathermic, and more. The most common type of heater, convection heaters transfer heat through a liquid – like the permanently sealed oil in oil-filled radiators – or through an electric coil or wire. Some models utilize a fan for effective whole-room heating. Ceramic heaters are convection heaters that use an internal ceramic plate to generate heat and a fan to distribute warm air across a room. Many ceramic heater models have a tower design for quick, even heating. Infrared heaters are radiant heaters that provide direct warmth through invisible infrared waves. These heaters often contain an electric ribbon, quartz tube, or infrared light bulbs that produce quiet heat. Micathermic heaters are thin, low-profile panel heaters that combine convection and reflective heating technologies along with a mica stone heating element. These space-saving heaters are portable and wall mountable.
