Convection heater: For quick heat and quick results, you can’t get much faster than a convection heater. Suitable for any room in the house thanks to their portability, convection heaters heat the air rather than surfaces – drawing air in, heating it and then circulating it around the room. Whisper-quiet, they’re excellent for heating bedrooms overnight, but less effective for bigger rooms or high ceilings.
Panel heater: Slimline and streamlined, this eco-friendly choice is made up of a flat glass panel, often covering a steel sheet. Ideal for bedrooms, offices or studies, they give off a controlled amount of heat in a small surrounding area – which makes them a good safety choice around pets or children, as they often won’t be hot enough to burn.
Fan heater: Much like convection heaters, fan heaters heat up air rather than objects. However, the fan allows the heated air to be pushed round the room faster, so they’re better at warming up a room quicker. What you gain in speed, you lose in quietness though – as the fans are usually quite unavoidably noisy.
