Most homes have the luxury of central heating these days. But things can go wrong sometimes. Or you might just want some additional heat in one particular room. Space heaters are a great way to warm a room up quickly and with modern technology, as the name suggests, don’t tend to take up too much space.
Here are eight of the best space heaters:
Sophisticated, classy and powerful. There are lots to like about this space heater from De’Longhi. We like the curved edges and the ceramic feel. Plus there is the handy handle that makes carrying it from room to room really easy. As for features, it has a safety cut out switch and weighs only 1.3kg.
The problem with most oil heaters is the time they take to heat up. No such problems with this one. It has a timer you can set in advance, and it takes no time at all to get your room nice and warm. Not only that but this is one of the more energy efficient space heaters on our list.
You get instant heat with this heater so it is ideal for really cold rooms that you want to get warm immediately. You can use it anywhere too, from the garage to a caravan. So it is very versatile. Portable and lightweight, a great option to keep under the stairs for when needed. 2 heat settings.
This is so stylish you could almost pretend it is a fancy speaker. It comes with 2 heat settings and has an automatic shut off switch in case it is knocked over. Very quiet when on and gives out a surprisingly powerful blast of good heat.
Dimplex is renowned for their space heaters and this is a good chance to grab a bargain. It’s great for a bit of extra heat for larger rooms that have cold spots and comes with 2 heat settings and a timer. You also get handles and a 3-year guarantee.
Another heater that doesn’t look like a heater. Made from ceramic, we like the LED dial on the front which gives you more control over the heat setting. Operates instantly and has tilt protection installed.
This De’Longhi tower heater oscillates to spread the heat throughout your room. It distributes heat efficiently and has 3 settings including an eco-energy mode. There is a tilt protection function and we love the elegant and stylish design.
Finally, the Lasko is a funky little heater that is quite clever. It automatically adjusts its output according to your room temperature. It has an illuminated switch for easy controlling and the heat goes down to the floor (the coldest area) which then rises naturally to heat the space. The upright panel can be placed on the wall out of the way and there’s tilt protection installed.
