Winter may be weeks away, but that doesn’t mean it’s not chilly outside. And if you’re like me, anything below 65 degrees Fahrenheit is considered sweater weather and grounds to turn up the heat. (FYI: I grew up in Los Angeles.)
But instead of layering up with a cozy sweater and jacking up your heat, a space heater could be a more efficient solution. For one, they can heat up a room quickly. And secondly, they could potentially save you some cash, according to Consumer Reports.
Now, there are several types of space heaters, including oil-filled radiators, fans and ceramic heaters. To decide what’s the best option for your home, consider the size of the room you want to warm up and how you want the heat to be distributed. For example, oil-filled radiators can be ideal for medium to larger rooms because of their bigger size. Plus, they tend to be popular due to greater heat retention and lower energy use.
On the other hand, heat fans are ideal for personal work spaces and smaller rooms, according to Today. These type of heaters warm up quickly and often distribute warm air to one main area.
If you’re not sure what may be appropriate for your needs for the colder months ahead, I’ve provided a list of some of the most beloved space heaters floating around on Amazon for you to check out.
