What to Look For When Purchasing a Heater

  • British Thermal Units (BTU) measure how much heat the unit puts out. The BTU rating determines how much space the unit can heat safely and effectively.
  • Variable settings allow you to set the unit's heat output and its energy/fuel consumption. During warmer periods or in smaller spaces, you can turn the heater down and conserve energy/fuel while maintaining a comfortable temperature.
  • Built-in blowers and fans or oscillating units distribute heat more evenly over a greater area, thus saving energy/fuel and increasing the overall comfort level in the space being heated.
  • Portability is an important feature when you only want to heat or supplement the heat in specific areas. Having the ability to easily move the heater from one place to another allows you to heat only the area you choose.
  • Built-in safety features, such as automatic shutoffs, anti-tipping devices, and heat guards, make heaters much more user-friendly and give you peace of mind.

Wood Stove Heaters

Traditional wood stoves burn logs from 18 to 22 inches long to generate heat. Some stoves have glass fronts that allow you to enjoy the dancing flames while taking advantage of superior heating. Look for a stove with an ash drawer to make clean up easier and safer.

Types of Electric Heat

  • Fan: Fan heat forces air through the unit with rotating fans and circulate it throughout the room. This is type of heat is best for large rooms.
  • Radiant: Radiant heat uses heating elements that emit an infrared radiation. It can reach high temperatures
  • Oil: An oil-filled heater is a form of convection heater, where the heating element heats up the oil which then heats the metal wall, then flows through the cavities of the heater. Oil reaches high temperatures.

Garage & Shop Heaters

Garage and shop heaters use more energy than forced-air heaters. They are used to heat up garages and shops in the colder months, allowing you to work year-round or store liquids and houseplants without worrying about anything freezing.
