Welcome to the dead of winter, a time that is so gloomily cold, that even your furnace or heat pump can’t completely take the edge off the temps. That’s where a space heater comes into play.
And these aren’t your parents’ space heaters, either. They are sleeker, safer, and more energy efficient than those from the past. That said, you have a few choices depending on your preferences (speed, efficiency, noise, cost, style).
Radiant: Sealed, oil heaters work in much the same way that old-school radiators do…they conserve heat and distribute it effectively, efficiently, and inexpensively. Radiant heaters are the quietest, but they take 20-30 minutes to heat an area.
Ceramic: Compact units that come in a variety of shapes and sizes that are best used for individual spaces such as offices and bedrooms. Although not as quiet or efficient as radiant heaters, they heat an area quickly and come in a range of prices, depending on durability desired.
Utility or Fan Heaters: These are heater/fan combinations that work best for larger areas. They work quickly and are inexpensive, but are louder than other options and are not efficient.
