12 Types of Portable Heater for Rooms You Need And Which One Fits Your Lifestyle 


Human always prefers to live,work in a warm place rather than a cold one. In the winter, we have to face the problem that how to keep our home or office warm. Our ancestors drilled wood to make fire. Nowadays, with the advance of technology, we don’t need to do that anymore. We can buy a portable heater for room.

Many kinds of space heaters for room can provide us a comfortable environment with warm air. There are two kinds of portable heaters for room  their different structure and the way they work.

1. Convention heaters

A convection heater (otherwise known as a convector heater) is a type of portable heater for room that uses convection currents to heat and circulate air.
(source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convection_heater)

The explanation of the convection heater from Wiki shows us that this kind of portable heater for room warms our room by heating the air in the first place.

That means the convention heater for room needs a relatively long time to warm our room if we compare it with infrared heaters.

2. Infrared heaters (Heat lamp)

An infrared heater or heat lamp is a body with a higher temperature that transfers energy to a body with a lower temperature through electromagnetic radiation

This kind of portable heater for room instead of increasing the temperature of the air firstly, transmits the heat directly to clothing and skin.The infrared heater can heat the temperature quicker than the convection heater.

These two kinds of portable heaters for room are the most common type people will choose.In the following parts of the article, we will compare them from different perspectives.

Best portable heater for Room

The first point that should be taken into consideration is the place where you want to warm up. We should choose portable heaters for room with different power according to the size of your room area. Usually, an electric heater of 900W is appropriate to the bedroom of 12 square meters. The room of 15 square meters is suitable for a 1500W electric heater.

And the bedroom of 20 square meters, under the circumstance, that the power supply line allows, can choose the electric heater of 2000W above. In an office or room, when only one person needs to warm, buying an infrared heater will be a good choice. Instead, convection heaters will be better if the whole family wants to heat together.

As the convection heaters for room need to heat the air first, they would be more suitable for the small and enclosed spaces like bedrooms, offices, basement areas, and family areas. Infrared heaters can be used in outside spaces like garages and sheds. When it comes to energy-saving, this is another point we will take into account.

The real question we should focus on is not how efficient a portable heater for room is, but how effective it is at increasing the temperature of the intended space. So the key tip of saving energy when using a portable heater for room is choosing a proper kind of heater according to space.

Precautions for use

Though the advance of technology increasingly lowers the risk when we use portable heaters for room, we still can see how harmful the portable heat can be if we use them unproperly from the statistics.

When using a portable heater for room, we have a lot of matters needing attention and take some safe operation. Before we using high-power heaters, we should fully aware of the maximum current that the power supply can bear.

According to the total power divided by 220, the maximum current required can be calculated.
Lines, protectors, switches, sockets, and so on with a slight margin can be used, otherwise, there will be danger of burning, leakage, and spontaneous combustion.

Sockets cannot be located in heating parts too close, cannot be covered by other items. When there is no person in the bedroom, the heaters' power must be shut down.

As to the installation and position of portable heaters for room, they should be put in a place that is not easy to fetch.
being far away from combustible content, most portable heaters for room should be more than 20 cm or so back from the wall.

If the electric heater is placed in the bathroom, we should be more careful to avoid the adverse consequences caused by the water.We have better install power supply sockets outside the bathroom, and protect the wires of heaters by using insulating rubber.Also, we must make sure that preventing the joint of the heater and wire from water.

Some people like to lean against low-power heaters to keep warm, and even put their hands and feet on the radiator, which is easy to burn themselves.

Some people bring their portable heaters for room directly toward their bodies.If they do so for a long time, their skin will be hurt. So, when using the portable heater for room, you have better not be too close to them, especially don't turn the heater air outlet directly toward a part of your body. Skin in the winter will gradually lose surface grease, leading to poor moisturizing ability.

Under the circumstance, if we still use the heaters indoors, the atmosphere will be more dry, resulting in skin water shortage, chapped, itching. Accordingly, when using a portable heater at home, we should struggle to increase indoor humidity. For example, we can raise a few water plants, put a few bowls of water or clean the ground regularly, use a humidifier, and so on.
