Many people choose electric heaters for homes because they are affordable and do not emit carbon monoxide and other toxic gases. In addition, there are many models to choose from such as:
Space Heaters – which are suitable for heating smaller areas or rooms. They are quiet and can directly heat a specific area.
Baseboard Heaters – which are portable, easy to maintain and safe because they have overheat protection. They are suitable for bedrooms because they have no fan and are therefore very quiet.
Garage Heaters – which are designed for heating areas of approximately 150 to 560 square feet, that are without enough insulation to retain heat. They are spot heaters, meaning they can be pointed toward the people or objects needing warmth.
Infrared Heaters – which are silent and extremely efficient because they directly heat the objects facing them.
Oil-Filled Heaters – which are radiator heaters that are recommended for heating rooms as well as small spaces such as under desks or on table tops. They are easy to maintain because they use oil that need not be replaced and never burns.
Electric Fireplace Heaters – which can be an alternative to real wood-burning fireplaces without any of the mess. They operate at a cost as low as a few cents per hour.
Electric Wall Heaters – which are effective for use in small rooms such as bathrooms. They can be installed in a recessed wall cavity and are available as convection or radiant heat models.
Many electric heaters for homes are self-contained with built-in thermostats. They are not recommended to be installed in exterior walls to avoid problems with condensation and exterior insulation. The best electric heaters for homes are those that meet your efficiency and cost requirements.
