Heating a home can be expensive, but a space heater is one option that could end up costing less. It’s also a great way to heat a space that doesn’t have a heat source, like a garage or shed, or even your cubicle at work. Here’s what to look for in a space heater.
Great for Cubicles
Get toasty toes at work without overheating those around you. GiveBest
If you’re looking for a space heater to take to work, look for one that heats 200 square feet or less, so you don’t inadvertently end up making others too hot. A quiet fan is also a plus in this type of environment.
Can Warm an Entire Floor
Advanced system works in rooms up to 1,000 square feet. Dr Infrared
If you need to heat large rooms or even an entire floor of your home, look for a space heater that operates using infrared or convected heat rather than just blowing hot air. It will distribute a natural-feeling heat more evenly.
Advanced Safety Features
Enjoy warmth and peace of mind. TaoTronics
Space heaters have a bad reputation for being dangerous. That’s why some of today’s models incorporate important safety features like automatic shut-off in the event of overheating or tipping. Another great addition is a timer that allows you to choose when it runs and when it doesn’t. If you’ll be using your space heater around kids, it’s critical to shop for a space heater with safety features you feel comfortable with, and remember to always read your product’s user manual.
