Come winters and everyone starts looking for space heaters to cozy up their home. Suitable for warming small areas or individual rooms, space heaters are budget friendly alternatives for those who cannot afford central heating. If chosen wisely, they are extremely safe and can reduce your power bills by a great margin. If you are intent on buying one for your home, here are some of the best space heaters you can opt for.
The Lasko 754200
It may be small, but the Lasko 745200’s power packed performance makes up for it and helps heat up a room in no time. If one is willing to overlook the absence of tip-over sensor, the heater would definitely edge out bigger and pricier models with its state of the art safety features which include a cool case that remains cool even at high temperatures and an overheat cut-off sensor.
The DeLonghi TRD0715T Safeheat 1500W
Suitable for slightly bigger rooms, the DeLonghi TRD0715T provides a slow and steady heat that remains for even an hour, after switching it off, with the help of a reliable built in thermostat and timer. The radiator style heater is practically silent, making it the best choice to cozy up your bedroom at night without producing any noise. The disadvantages one would have to bear with this heater are the time taken to heat up and its weight. In addition, it gets very hot after some time, so try not to touch it to ensure safety.
The DeLonghi EW7507EB Radiator
If you do not fancy the DeLonghi TRD0715T, consider opting for its smaller cousin, the DeLonghi EW7507EB that is similar in performance to the former albeit the costs involved. The only hitch with this model is that it comes with a digital timer and control, which would require you to reset, every time you plug in the heater.
The Lasko 6462
This oscillating space heater has some impressive features, including three selectable oscillation sweeps for uniform heat distribution, simple and intuitive controls, an overheat cut off sensor and a remote that lets you operate it easily. The only concern is the absence of the tip off sensor in this tower heater that however you can easily overlook keeping its numerous advantages in mind.
The Honeywell HZ-980
Forget heating up the air. The Honeywell HZ-980 actually heats up the objects and people in the room. Although a tad bit pricier than other models, the space heater comes with a power of 1500 watts and a very powerful fan that helps distribute heat uniformly throughout the room in a very short span of time.
The Vornado ATH1 Whole Room Tower Heater
Similar to Lasko in performance, the Vornado ATH1 heats up a room fast and features an oscillating base for uniform heat distribution. It also comes with a built in 9 hour timer and is priced a bit higher than the other models in this list.
The DeLonghi HMP1500
The perfect choice for anyone looking for a heater that combines the thermal mass of a radiator and the heating features of a ceramic heater, the DeLonghi HMP1500 is very silent in operation due to the absence of a fan. Priced a bit lower than the Lasko, the DeLonghi HMP1500 helps heat up the room quickly, but cannot hold onto the heat for long after being switched off.
These are some of the best space heaters available in the market today. If you want to buy one for your home, consider these models and choose the one that best suits your room size and budget.
