Small Space Heater Reviews
Welcome to Small Space Heater Reviews for 2014 - 2015
This year's electric space heater reviews include best sellers from Vorndo,
Lasko, DeLonghi along with my personal favorite, the Dr Infrared Heater.
New for 2015 is the Lasko 6462 whole room heater with 360° coverage, the
Crane Mini Fireplace Heater and more.
Only the best electric space heaters awarded a minimum of 4 out of 5
stars by actual users are included here.
With over 1,800 different models available, electric heaters are not a one size
fits all appliance. A few things to consider before buying a space heater are
room size, presence of kids or pets, personal taste, budget, and your
tolerance for noise.
Whether your goal is to save on heating costs by dialing back the thermostat
and heating only the room you occupy (zone heating), or you need a little
extra heat to make your favorite room more comfortable on cold winter
nights, you're sure to find an energy efficient solution to your heating needs
here at Space Heater Reviews.
|Small Room Heaters - Office Cube Heaters
|Whole Room Compact Heaters
Full power 1,500 watt heaters housed in space saving enclosures.
Oil Filled Space Heaters
The heat retention properties of oil make the radiator type heater one of the
most energy efficient in use today. Radiator heaters are also among the safest.
So much so, many universities prohibit the use of any other type of portable
heater in their dormitories.
Whole Room Ceramic and Convection Heaters With Fans
A space heater with a fan will heat any room 3 X's faster than one without and
distribute the heat to a larger area.
Quiet Whole Room Heaters Without Fans
When people complain about noisy space heaters they're really talking about the
fan. Get rid of the fan - get rid of the noise. It's that simple.

the flame display year round with or without heat

Noise Every space heater ever made has at least one noise
complaint. If you're hyper-sensitive to sound i would
suggest buying a heater without a fan.

it's only a 1,500 watt heater and I wish the manufacturers
of quartz heaters would stop making this claim. Realistically,
the Lifesmart infrared fireplace should heat up to 400 sq ft -
which is still a large space.

extra heat to any room in your home.
