About this deal
If you think this strategy can work for your lifestyle, try it out for a month to see if there’s a difference in your bills. Just keep in mind that the large, electric stove-style appearance may be a bit too clunky for those seeking a more discrete space heater. It offers power modes of 750 watts or 1,500 watts, along with a convenient remote that allows you to adjust the fan speed, temperature, timer, and brightness.
The combination of PTC ceramic heating technology and a high-speed fan enables rapid heating, effectively warming up a 200-square-foot space within seconds. After testing over 40 space heaters, the Vornado VH200 Personal Space Heater w/ Vortex Circulation Technology is our best overall pick.We cannot stress this enough: It’s imperative to read the entire instruction manual before using a space heater.
Space heaters are one of the most common things that lead to fires in the home,” explains Light, so much so that Edwards says if you own a space heater, you also need a fire extinguisher in your home. During testing, we found that the large handle made it very easy to carry and lift, and it's one of the lightest options on our list, at 3 pounds. One dial controls the power, while the other dial allows you to choose from a fan-only setting (no heat), 750 watts (low heat), or 1,500 watts (high heat). We tested 43 space heaters in our Lab and assessed them on heating performance, design, safety, and value.In testing, the temperature change was noticeable after just a few minutes, with the heater producing a solid, effective stream of hot air. The GiveBest Portable Electric Space Heater is a two-in-one ceramic heater, complete with two heat levels (1500W and 750W) and one cool air fan, which allows the appliance to be used all year round. The handle makes it easy to move throughout my house any time — and anywhere — I need an extra blast of heat. We love the Atomi Smart Wi-Fi Portable Heater because it is Alexa- and Google Assistant-compatible, is controlled from an app, and has a user-friendly display—plus, it heats up quickly, especially in the area in front of the heater. Edwards adds that space heaters should have an indicator light to confirm that the machine is on or energized.
It also comes with a remote that is easy to use and worked from as far as 8 feet away while we were testing. Unsupervised, curious kiddos could approach the heater, touch it, and experience discomfort from the hot exterior.Also, never use an extension cord with an electric heater—choose a model with a long power cord if proximity to an outlet is an issue. While it doesn't have a large carrying handle like our best portable option, it's less than 4 pounds and has a small built-in handle, so it's relatively easy to lift. Portability: We carried or wheeled the space heaters across the room, noting how comfortable they were to handle and how easy they were to move. Biermeier warns that while “in theory, the safety functions on a space heater would allow you to run one all night,” there is always the risk of a safety function failing, which could cause a house fire. Look for models with automatic shutoffs or temperature regulators, particularly if your space heater will be running frequently or overnight.
