A heater produces and radiates heat, typically to raise the temperature of a room or building. There are many factors to consider when choosing a heater, including how much space you need it to cover, how quiet you want it to be, whether you want it to oscillate or have directional heat, and how easy it is to control from a distance, particularly with smart-home compatibility. The best heaters are durable, have a low risk of catching fire or producing carbon monoxide poisoning, and are inexpensive to run.
Most heaters use corded electric power to generate heat, and the amount of electricity they consume will depend on the size and how warm you want your room to be. Larger heaters will generally cost more to operate than smaller units. They may also consume more energy if they have a fan as well as a heating function. If you choose a heater that uses energy-efficient technology, such as ceramic, it will be cheaper to run than other types of heater.
This compact heater is a good option for a small space, thanks to its light 2.1kg weight and simple carry handle. It has a wide range of settings, from 10 fan settings to four heat settings and three modes: natural (which varies the airflow for a distracting effect), normal and sleep (which gradually reduces its intensity as you drift off). A thermostat and timer are also built in, so you can set a target temperature and the heater will turn off when it reaches this level. It’s also a sturdy unit that feels stable when kept free-standing, and will shut off if tipped over. heater
