Which types of room heater is best for you?

There are generally 3 types of room heater found in Indian market these are,

Convection heaters or Fan heaters

The basic principle of fan room heater is there is a heating element and the air from the fan will pass in it and circulates around the room and heats up a quick. 

Generally, the heating element is resistance were heater. They are inexpensive, and safe to touch while running. But the problem is that it dries out the air around it and deplete the oxygen so you may feel suffocation. 

They are also little noisy for the fan. I don’t recommend this type of heater for a small baby.  If you are residing from a heavy cold area and want to get instant warm out fro heavy cold then you can go for it.

Infrared heaters or Radiant heaters

The infrared heaters use infrared technology to produce heat and reflect it directly to the people/ surrounding objects. 

The reflector is usually made up of stainless steel or nickel chrome. It takes a little time to warm the complete room. They are completely soundless. 

Like fan heater id does not deplete the oxygen but it fails to maintain the humidity. These are budget-friendly less power consuming. But it may be dangerous to use as there is a high chance of an electric short circuit. It is not recommended to touch any part of the heater while running. Place it in a safe place where your child cant reach. These are best for small room 

Oil-filled heaters

This is overly the best room heater in India. I personally like this type of room heater because it is good for health and anyone can use it overnight. It does not dry air and delicate oxygen like other room heaters. 

The concept is that it has a lot of fins which are filled with oil. Betow the fin there is a PTC heater to heat the oil. Then the oil further heat the fin and the fin will radiate heat to the surroundings. The of using oil is that it absorbs the heat and keeps the fin warm log time, so there is no need to keep the heater all time. In this way, it saves a lot of energy.

Generally, this type of room heater uses PTC heating technology as there are power efficient and able to heat very quickly. Here the resistance will increases according to the temperature, so it decreases the current flow and saves a lot of energy.

 There is also a flyer to control humidity by spraying water vapor to the surrounding.

As the heat from the fin takes little time to warm the room there is a fan to quickly spread the hot air around the room and later it can be stopped.

There are also some demerits with this type of room heater. They are bulky and takes large space and these are also very expensive.

Things to Consider while buying

Before buying you must check these features.

Wattage:

The easiest way to calculate the requirement of wattage for your room simply multiply 10 into your room size. Let’s say your room size is 2000squir feet then you should go for at least 2000watt room heater.

Higher the wattage means high power consumption

Heat settings: 

You should consider heat settings to set the temperature as per your need

Safety features: 

Safe is no one priority in all cases. Before buying any product you should consider safety first. While buying room heater you should check whether there is overheating protection or not. Also check the quality of the material. Always go for a good brand and check the product carefully while buying.

Noise Level: 

No body likes noise so you should check the noisee level wile buying. Generally, fan heaters are quite noisy. While buying fan room heate also checks whether there is a base leg or not.
