We always take a warm room for granted. You don’t realize the value of a space heater until you are shivering wrapped up in many blankets with tons of socks over your feet just hoping that the night will end. As someone who speaks from experience, space heaters are a necessity in the winter time. For whatever reason, our heater unit just doesn’t seem to get the job done in our house. Because of this, I have gone through several space heaters over the years to accommodate my growing family… Call them growing pains if you will. I have learned through trial and error that some space just don’t cut it. I have put together some space heater reviews of some of the more popular space heaters on the market in hopes that you too don’t have to experience the growing pains I went through.
There are several important factors to look for when deciding what space heater to choose. Luckily my in depth space heater reviews will go over all of these points in detail. Trust me, you don’t want to be stuck with a huge power bill because you picked the cheaper model. Just another part of the growing pains that I was talking about earlier. A cheap space heater ended up costing me several times more than what I thought I have saved off of the original price tag. The space heater reviews I have below will go over what is the most efficient space heater on the market so you don’t get stuck with a huge power bill.
Did you know there are actually different types of space heaters? Our space heater reviews actually state what type of space heater it is so you aren’t left frustrated that you bought the wrong space heater for your needs. Before deciding what space heater to use, first look at your needs. Do you need to heat up just your desk in your office because it’s at the far end of the house? Or are you looking to heat up your whole bedroom? If you are looking to just heat up a small area in a room then a radiant heater is the way to go for you. A radiant heater emits infrared radiation (don’t worry it’s not harmful) that warms up whatever is close to the space heater. These are perfect for small areas and they are also the most efficient space heaters out there. If you need to heat up a larger area like a whole room then a conventional space heater is the way to go as it heats up the air in the room. This of course comes at a price… literally. The larger the space heater the more money your power bill. Fear not though as not all space heaters are equal! There are also kerosene powered space heaters.
