Space heaters offer warm and quiet comfort for any room in your home or office during those cold winter months. Portable and convenient, advanced heater models offer a number of benefits over centralized heating and other heater types.
First off, they are small and compact and can fit any corner of the room. They are great for providing warmth for small to medium sized spaces, though you might need a bigger unit if you have a fairly large room. They do not require complicated plumbing, ducting, and installation as they can be simply plugged into a 220 volt outlet and are ready to operate. They come in a variety of colors, sizes, and finish fitting any décor, and are small enough to stow away in a closet when not in use.
Portable space heaters also require little to no maintenance, unlike large central heating units which require constant cleaning to ensure reliable operation. Portable heaters only need the occasional clean with mild soap and water for the exterior housing. Fewer moving parts also mean fewer things to go wrong with an electric space heater.
Portable heaters work by running an electrical current through a wire or heating element, which converts the electricity into heat which is then radiated into the air. This means that electric heaters are almost 100% efficient, meaning they convert almost all the energy put in them into heat. An integrated blower then pushes the warm air out as it draws more cool air to be warmed up. This system requires less energy and can save you a lot of money in the long run compared to a more expensive central heater. They are also great for heating up small spaces which is totally impractical for large heaters, and has no emissions and no risk of fire, which is common with gas or wood burning furnaces.
