What you need to know about Fan Heaters
Fan Heaters are an inexpensive investment, and probably the best way to heat a small room or enclosed space rapidly. A fan pushes air quickly past a heated element (usually a metal grill) within the heater, transferring warmth to the internal atmosphere of the room. The high airflow means that they can be directed accurately towards the area that needs heating, be that where you are sitting, or where a damp towel is hanging. Some models come with inbuilt thermostats, so the heater can turn itself when the room reaches a desired temperature, while others only have a timer.
The drawback of a fan heater compared to the other varieties of heater available
is that they require proportionately more energy to assist with moving the heated air around a room. Of course, this is compensated for by the speed with which they accomplish it. However, if you intend on using your heater regularly on a long term basis, you would be better served by a Convector Heater
or an Oil Filled Radiator
Tips for using your Fan Heater
Fan Heaters can be expensive to run in the long term. To save on costs, ensure that you use your heater in well insulated places. More insulation permits less heat to be lost, which means that the heater will have to be run less often. Avoid touching near the heating element during use, & keep the Fan Heater a few feet away from curtains, upholstery, or any flammable substances. Do not allow water or other fluids to come into contact with the heater, & keep the air intake and outtake uncovered while the heater is on.
