Types of Electric Space Heaters

Electric heaters come in a few different styles, with pros and cons to each:

  • Column Heaters: Sometimes called an electric oil heate, fin heater or radiator heater. These hold heat pretty well, but can be heavy and take a while to heat up. They usually work best when there's some air flow, so a few models come with built-in fans.

  • Fan Heaters: The USA-style small electric space heater. Great for under desks, or near your feet when watching TV. Cheap and cheerful, but not suitable for big rooms.

  • Panel Heaters: These convector heaters are perfect for warming up a bathroom. Light, slimline, portable, and in some cases, these heaters can be wall mounted.

Features

It's worth thinking beforehand about how you'll use your heater. Hate getting off the couch? Get a heater with a remote control. Forgetful? A heater with a built-in timer has you covered.
