Beat the Bills With These Space Heaters and Indoor Heaters

It’s getting cold, and the season for space heaters and indoor heaters has arrived!

Heaters — there’s a variety of types available on the market. They may come in different designs, but they all share the same purpose, and that is to provide warmth. As energy bills rise through the roof, a space heater could be just what you need to 

When the winter season kicks in, the weather limits your time spent outdoors. This leaves you with two options: 1.) cosy up your outdoor space with patio heaters, 2.) invest in an indoor heating system and snuggle in the living room.

Sure, you can have both – but if the latter sounds more convincing on your end, this post is for you! Read and browse through these round-up selections of space heaters and indoor heaters.

Designed to provide warmth in small, enclosed spaces, you might need a space heater. It comes in handy for different situations and helps save you money when it comes to heating costs.

Space heaters are usually small and portable, partially enclosed structures. They work alongside your home’s central heating system, such as electric, solar, gas, and so on.

Moreover, they consume a lot of electrical energy, meaning they can heat a room – small, in particular, fast. For non-electric models, the power source is mostly combustible fuels.

This includes propane, natural gas, wood and kerosene. Such resources require a vent to exhaust the gases safely outside the occupied area.

Simply place the portable heater down in the room you need to warm up and let it do its magic on the double! A unit won’t draw attention to itself as it cosies up your space. 

Being able to move it from room to room as needed means you have a reliable source of extra heat at a reasonable price.

Indoor Heaters

Indoor heaters are no different from the ‘space’ types as both share the same evident goal. But rather as a completing piece, an indoor heater makes a perfect home feature.

Available in different sizes, one can be your living room’s focal point or an accent to the bedroom. Among the popular options is electric, and stove heaters are great examples.

Both space and indoor heaters come in various kinds, such as:

  • Infrared (IR)
  • Oil-filled
  • Propane
  • Panels

Each appears and works in a different way, so consider this and see what best suits your needs.

Electric

Electric heaters take electrical energy as an input source of power. Then, they convert that energy into thermal energy for heating the air or objects in a given space.

Infrared

Infrared heaters work by emitting electromagnetic waves into the air. The process is identical to how the sun uses radiation to heat the Earth.

Instead of warming up the air, they heat the objects (e.g. furniture) and human bodies around it. These types of heaters are also good for large basements, and some even look like real fireplaces.

Oil-filled

Also known as radiator heaters, oil-filled heaters are like old-fashioned radiator ones. Inside the body of the heater is diathermic oil.

The oil gets heated up and circulates through the columns or fins. As those fins get hot, the surface temperature rises, releasing heat into the air.

Oil-filled space heaters are portable and run on electricity.

Propane

The only type of heater that doesn’t use electricity but instead on liquid propane (LP) as a power source. It’s not limited by the constraints of a power cord and can operate in case of a power outage.

The way it heats a room is like an infrared heater. It emits electromagnetic waves into the air to warm objects close by.

Panels

Panel heaters are new and more advanced. They can be mounted on a wall or the floor with the included stand.

They work the same way as oil-filled units by letting hot air radiate off the model. The only difference is that a flat panel heater doesn’t use oil but electrical currents.

Consider it a good option as a supplemental heat source for rooms that don’t get quite as hot as you need them to.
