A space heater can provide some extra warmth in a drafty room or chilly office. In Consumer Reports’ space heater tests, we found multiple models that work well and even look good. We also found that you don’t have to pay a premium for top performance—many models we rate highly cost less than $100.

If you’re shopping for a space heater right now, consult our space heaters buying guide for some baseline considerations (a space heater won’t necessarily save you money, for example) and our expert tips on finding the right model for you.

And be sure to review how to find a safe-to-use space heater, as well as our safety tips around operating one at home—and in the bathroom. Notably, it’s safest to keep space heaters on the floor rather than on a table. That means a remote control can come in handy, especially if the knobs and dials are on the bottom of the unit (less stooping over and squinting at the settings).

Finally, there’s noise. A machine that makes a racket can be annoying if you’re running it while trying to watch TV (or work).

Most of the space heaters in CR’s ratings earn a Very Good or Excellent score in our noise test, and those that did worse typically had other shortcomings. Here are the quietest space heaters we currently rate.

We evaluate space heaters for heating a standard-sized room in 15 minutes and directly heating a person—spot heating—in the same amount of time. “Our spot-heating test uses a mannequin wired with sensors,” says test engineer Chris Regan, who oversees our space heater ratings. “We want to know how your body will feel when you’re sitting within 4.5 feet of the appliance.”

We also test space heaters for safety, as shown above, including how hot the surface gets (so that you don’t burn your fingers) and whether the model gets so hot that it can ignite a piece of fabric (like nearby curtains, for example).

Below, grouped alphabetically by task, are ratings and reviews of space heaters that excel at both heating a room and directly heating a person—as well as models that aced either one task or the other. For even more options, see our comprehensive space heater ratings.

As winter ends but summer struggles to begin, there’s only so much that wool socks, slippers, and fuzzy fleeces can do — especially if the heating in your building has been switched off a little prematurely. To help you cope, I’ve rounded up the best space heaters to keep your home office, garage, or even boyfriend’s bedroom warm. Once you’ve chosen yours, be sure to carefully read the safety manual. You’ll want to keep it “at least three feet away from anything that can catch fire — clothing, papers, bedding — and make sure you’re plugging it directly into the wall, never a power strip or extension cord,” says Alexander Hoehn-Saric, chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. It’s key to find a “stable, flat, nonflammable surface — you don’t want it to be knocked over unintentionally.”

A ceramic space heater works by heating up a ceramic plate and uses a convection fan to distribute this warmth outward. If you’re sitting close to it, this style of heater will provide a more immediate effect compared with the slower burn of an oil-based one. The trade-off? A noisy fan and higher energy consumption. Oil-based heaters will eventually succeed in heating up a larger space for longer periods.

Although the CPSC offers guidelines for safely utilizing space heaters (as well as an archive of products recalled for safety issues), it does not enforce any mandatory safety features. Instead, Hoehn-Saric explains, “there are voluntary industry standards” that some manufacturers will choose to meet. Two U.S.-based independent laboratories, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and Intertek (ETL), assess heater safety, and products approved by these labs will be advertised as such. “When you see the markings of an accredited laboratory, you know that that product has been manufactured to those standards,” Hoehn-Saric advises. “So if you’re buying a new space heater, look for those markings.” National Fire Protection Association communications manager Susan McKelvey told me the same thing: “Our only general guideline for buying a space heater is to check that it bears the mark of an independent testing laboratory, which ensures that the product meets established safety standards.

I’ve noted the output and thermostat settings of our heaters, so you can buy the best one for your particular space. Many of these picks have adjustable thermostats or fan-only settings that will use less power. Just note that while space heaters can provide comfort when central heating systems fail, they likely won’t save you money unless used sparingly. “There’s no such thing as an energy-efficient space heater,” says Michael Thomas, the founder of Carbon Switch. “The only scenario where a space heater is ecofriendly or energy efficient is when it’s used to reduce the amount of energy a central heating system uses. For example, you might want to warm up just one room or a small section of a house. If doing so means turning off the central heating system, then it might save energy.”

Lasko Ceramic Portable Space Heater


com/strategist/_components/clay-paragraph/instances/cked9l048003j3h63d5fdyl5p@published” data-word-count=”21″>Heating style: Convection ceramic | Safety features: ETL listed, cool touch, overheat protection, tip switch | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, adjustable thermostat

Ideal for small rooms and single-person use, this space heater is affordable, portable, and plenty warm. It meets all the criteria I looked for and then some. Its highly adjustable thermostat offers 11 temperature settings, and the fan strength is adjustable, too, which allows volume control. This heater has both overheat protection and a tip switch — though, being compact in form, it’s less likely to topple than larger models. If you’re looking for a space heater to take the edge off for a few hours when your radiator isn’t doing the trick, this one is safe and efficient.

Comfort Zone CZ499R Ceramic Electric Tower Fan-Forced Heater


Heating style: Convection ceramic | Safety features: ETL listed, cool touch, overheat protection, tip switch | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, adjustable thermostat, timer

Better for medium-size rooms, this oscillating heater is ETL listed and received an unusually high safety score from Consumer Reports. It offers conveniences like an easy-to-read digital display, a remote control, and a timer. Rotating fans (with two adjustable settings) will distribute heat effectively around your room, and they do so very quickly. It will shut off automatically in the case of overheating and features a tip switch — unlike Lasko’s very similar tower heater.

Vornado Velocity 3R Whole Room Space Heater



Heating style: Convection ceramic | Safety features: UL listed, overheat protection, tip switch | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, adjustable thermostat, timer

For a little more money than our best overall pick, this compact Vornado offers powerful yet quiet convection heating with a minimalist aesthetic. It comes recommended to us by Lyons Den Power Yoga founder Bethany Lyons, who uses it for hot yoga classes. Compared with those by other brands she’s tried, she says, Vornados are longer lasting, quieter, and even more aesthetically pleasing. And while some people doing hot yoga at home will use several small heaters at once, this one is powerful enough to heat up your whole room.

Honeywell UberHeat Ceramic Portable Heater



Heating style: Ceramic | Safety features: Cool-touch, overheat protection, tip-switch | Efficiency: 15, 000 watt, low and high settings

Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens owns two of these “slightly retro” Honeywell heaters, which will suit those who are design-minded yet unwilling to invest in a pricey Vornado. This heater doesn’t forgo safety for style either — with its cool-touch housing, overheat protection, and a tip-switch for peace of mind. Kitchens says these heaters do their best work in the bathroom, and she places one under a kitchen bench for use on chilly mornings. Two rubber feet, as well as a sturdy stand at the back, also make them ideal for tabletop use.

Lasko Designer Series Ceramic Space Heater



Heating style: Convection ceramic | Safety features: ETL listed, overheat protection, cool-touch | Efficiency: 15,00 watt, adjustable thermostat

Or, if you’re sick of mid-century-modern aesthetics, this heater offers a pleasingly elegant Mediterranean-inspired look. Our junior writer Brenley Goertzen uses hers to heat a large (and occasionally drafty) sunroom in chilly Minnesota. “It gets our space warm in about ten minutes,” she says. “In winter, we use it nearly every morning.” She likes that this heater, with its unusual coiled stand, “blends with the surrounding décor,” looking right at home alongside a floor lamp and plant stand. The heater comes with its own remote, and its temperature and oscillating fan are both adjustable, including two “quiet comfort” settings that prioritize warmth while limiting fan noise.

Dr. Infrared Heater Advanced Dual Heating System With Humidifier and Oscillation Fan



Heating style: Infrared | Safety features: UL listed, overheat protection, tip switch, 12-hour automatic shut-off | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, low and high settings

com/strategist/_components/clay-paragraph/instances/cl517l2pm003d3e6i7hzgyk92@published” data-word-count=”59″>Hot-yoga instructor Nicole Katz stands by infrared heaters as more effective at warming up entire spaces than ceramic ones. She says this under-$200 one is a “solid choice” that even has a built-in humidifier, which will keep your skin from drying out and add a dose of extra-cozy comfort even if you’re not setting up a home hot-yoga studio.

DeLonghi Safe Heat ComforTemp Portable Oil-Filled Radiator


Heating style: Oil | Safety features: Overheat protection | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, adjustable thermostat

Oil heaters work by gradually warming up oil then radiating that heat outward. They don’t offer instant gratification or spot heating but will slowly heat up a large room then keep it warm all night — even after you flick the “Off” switch. This one offers a “comfort temp” button that allows you to regulate temperatures within your preferred range for long periods, and it’s sealed, meaning you’ll never have to replace the oil, as you do with some older styles.

Pelonis 1,500-Watt Oil-Filled Radiant Electric Space Heater



Heating style: Oil | Safety features: ETL-listed, overheat protection, tip-over switch | Efficiency: 1,500 watt, three thermostat settings

Our writer Jeremy Rellosa has “very toasty, cozy memories” associated with this affordable oil heater that’s lighter and more compact than the DeLonghi above. “In January, the heat in my apartment was broken for a few days, and no amount of sweaters or blankets alone could make it warm enough to focus when working from home,” he recalls. This Pelonis was able to warm up his Brooklyn apartment bedroom within 20 minutes. “It’s super quiet,” Rellosa adds. “The subtle ticking of the oil heating up is actually quite soothing.”

Heating style: Convection | Safety features: ETL Listed, UL Listed | Efficiency: Adjustable thermostat and airflow

We here at the Strategist love Dyson’s products. Though pricey, the brand is known for quality and innovative heating and cooling technology, from vacuum cleaners to TikTok-hyped hair styling tools to heaters like this one, which purifies the air and utilizes that iconic oscillating fan to cool things down in the summer. Blasting HEPA-purified warm air, this heater can warm up a medium-size room with ease and minimal noise. Controllable via remote or smartphone app, it has an impeccable safety pedigree, being both ETL and UL listed. Kitchens, as well as fellow senior editor Jen Trolio, have invested in a Hot + Cool and are happy with the purchase. “It heats really well,” says Trolio of hers, which she uses to heat a small home office. “There are better air purifiers out there for the cost, but for the design and the all-in-one product in a reasonably compact footprint, I like it a lot.” And a final underrated feature, she adds, is the remote that’s “nicely designed to magnetically attach to the top of the unit.”

Mr. Heater MH9BX Portable Buddy Heater

$144 now 38% off


Heating style: Propane | Safety features: Tip-switch | Efficiency: 9,000 BTUs

com/strategist/_components/clay-paragraph/instances/cl517ob76004h4e6iy1mgylj5@published” data-word-count=”184″>For cozy evenings on the porch or stoop or even cold nights in the RV, you can’t beat a Mr. Heater. This propane-powered heater is beloved by outdoor experts for its affordability, ease of use, and toasty, radiant heating power. According to the manufacturer, if run on high, a one-pound propane canister can power the Buddy for up to three hours; on a lower setting, you’ll get more like five. Strategist editor Maxine Builder is a fan of Mr. Heater, saying it “puts out serious heat” and is a cinch to use: “All you have to do is screw on the propane canister, click the pilot light on, and once it catches, set it to either high or low.” She finds it so effective and easy to use that she “convinced my husband’s mom to buy two more for outdoor hangs.” Michael Dean, an outdoor-living consultant and the founder of Pool Research, says it has “a nice carrying handle and can easily heat up a patio or be placed on a tabletop. It’s plenty warm if you have three or four folks around it.”

Baby room heater: which one is better to choose?

The baby room heater must be safe first and foremost. Therefore, we immediately exclude all devices operating on gas, liquid or solid fuel. Despite meeting all safety standards, they cannot be guaranteed to resist children’s curiosity and temperament. After all, heater for a child – is just an interesting toy. Hence, another selection criterion – heater for nursery should be discreet, not attracting too much attention, which means that decorative electric fireplaces with their bewitching flickering of artificial flame will also not be the best solution. The most suitable options are an electric convector, an oil cooler and an infrared heater.

Let’s consider each option in more detail and try to answer the question of which heater to choose for a children’s room.

Children’s room convector would probably be the best solution. Without a fan, the convector does not produce noise. This is very important, because children have much more sensitive hearing than adults, and due to the simplicity of the design, it is almost impossible to break this device. But which convector should you choose? After all, only in our online store there are more than 250 models!

Electric convectors are floor and wall, and here, of course, you should give preference to a wall structure that a child cannot overturn. According to the type of connection, it is better to choose a device that connects directly to hidden wiring, without an outlet and an electrical cord that a child can pull. The casings of convectors with a band heating element, with the same useful power, heat up much less than the casings of other models, which ensures complete safety from burns when touched.

Also pay attention to the presence of a thermostat, automation and remote control. The remotely controlled convector for a child will be preferable, because it will deprive him of the opportunity to independently remove the device from the set mode.

Oil radiators in the nursery

This type of heater can also be used in the nursery. Like a convector, it does not make noise, and modern models with a number of vertical sections, unlike the old flat oil radiators, do not heat up to a temperature that can cause a burn. But as a heater for a nursery, oil radiators are still inferior to convectors.

First, oil coolers are produced only as mobile floor structures, and a child can easily knock over such a device. Nothing terrible will happen in this case, but if the heater falls, it can be injured, especially if the sections have thin sharp ribs. However, this problem can be solved by fixing the heater by any improvised means.

The second drawback is that these simple and inexpensive devices do not include a remote control, and it will be very tempting for a child to twist the knobs on it. This will also not lead to tragic consequences, but the desired thermal regime in the room will be violated.

Based on the above, oil heaters in a nursery are best used only as a temporary source of heat under adult supervision.

Use of infrared heaters in a child’s room

An infrared heater is a complex and fragile device, its use in a nursery would seem to be not very reasonable. However, this only applies to floor standing models.

Infrared heater not only heats the air, it creates a directed flow of thermal radiation, similar to the sun, only without ultraviolet radiation. This flow effectively warms objects at a distance of up to several meters, which allows you to place the device at a distance inaccessible to the child.

In addition, IR rays have a therapeutic and preventive effect on inflammation of the skin, joints, nose, ears, especially in winter, with a lack of sunlight, but you should not abuse it, so the IR heater in the nursery should be positioned so that the child is not for a long time under a direct stream of radiation.

Among the various models of infrared heaters for a child’s room, it is better to give preference to ceiling ones. Ceiling mounting guarantees a safe distance and makes it more difficult for a child to reach the appliance.

Humidifiers for children

Despite the fact that electric heaters, unlike fuel heaters, practically do not consume oxygen and do not emit combustion products, they significantly reduce the relative humidity of the air, “dry” it. However, like conventional central heating radiators. Children’s skin, as well as the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, and respiratory tract are very sensitive to moisture deficiency. Therefore, along with the heater in the children’s room, it is necessary to install an air humidifier, a large selection of which is also presented on our website.


So, if you are faced with the question, which heater to choose for a children’s room – choose an electric convector. You can buy a convector in our online store, where, as already noted, more than 250 models are presented at the best prices.

Which heater is best for an apartment or house: 5 models

If central heating does not provide enough heat, installing heaters will help. These are devices designed for local heating. We will figure out what to look for when buying and which heater is best for an apartment.

We told in the video how to choose the best device for heating an apartment

All about choosing the best heater

Checklist for choosing
— Device type
— Power
— Features of operation
— Type of control
Mini-rating of the best models

We have prepared a simple checklist that will help you choose the right heater.

1. Choosing the type of equipment

Most equipment is powered by electricity, but the principle of converting electrical energy into heat can be different. The performance and power of the device depends on this. Let’s briefly describe the most popular types.

Fan heater. Inside the case there is a heater and a fan. The first warms up the air entering inside, the second directs it into the room. The main advantage of fan heaters is the rapid heating of the room. There are much more disadvantages: high power consumption, oxygen burning, noise during operation.

Convector. The principle of operation is very similar to that described above, but there is no fan. The heated air flow rises by gravity, displacing the cold air, which descends into the lower part of the room. The convector evenly heats the room, it works completely silently. Of the minuses, you need to know about the high consumption of electricity, the slow heating of the room, the movement of dust by convective currents.

Oil cooler. Its case, similar to a sectional battery, contains mineral oil. It is heated by a built-in heater, after which the equipment starts to heat the air. Butterman is inert: it warms up slowly, but retains heat for a long time. This significantly reduces power consumption. Cons: bulky and heavy case, overdrying of air, strong surface heating.

Infrared equipment. The built-in IR emitter emits infrared radiation. It accumulates in the surroundings of the device and heats them up. They heat up the air in the room. Of the advantages of such heaters, it should be noted fast uniform heating of the room, efficiency. The disadvantage is the rapid cooling after shutdown.

Compare different types of heaters in the table.

Fan heaters Electric convectors Oil coolers Infrared heaters
Heating speed high low low high
Operating noise yes no no no
Economy low medium medium high
Human exposure convective currents carry dust, dry the air convective currents carry dust, dry the air risk of burns from hot body, dries the air undesirable prolonged exposure to IR rays
Mounting method floor or stand wall, floor floor standing floor, wall, ceiling

As a result. For quick short-term heating, fan heaters or infrared devices are best suited. If long-term heating of the room is expected while maintaining the set temperature, it is more profitable to buy oil radiators or electric convectors.

2. Determining the power

For all types of heating devices, a simple rule for determining the power applies. On average, for every square meter of a room of standard height, there should be 100 watts of electrical appliance power. If there are windows, another 200 watts are added to each. For example, if the room is 20 sq. m two windows, then the minimum power will be 2,400 watts. It is desirable to add another 10-15% “in reserve” to it so that the device does not work for wear at times of peak loads.

For infrared equipment, things are a little different. Here 100 watts per sq. meter is considered the maximum power, so this figure can be reduced by 10-15% to bring the average.

For rooms with high ceilings (greater than 2. 8-3m), use a different formula. The volume of the room is divided by 30, this is the average coefficient. If there are windows, 200 watts are added to each of them. All these calculations are averaged. They do not take into account the thermal insulation of the room, its heat loss, etc.

Finally. More powerful devices will warm up the home faster. At the same time, if they work part-time, they will work much longer than those that are selected without a “reserve” and constantly work at the peak of their capabilities. It is best to choose devices with a power regulator, they can be adjusted to different conditions.

3. Specify the special operating conditions

That is, we determine the conditions under which the device will operate. For example, if the equipment is supposed to be used for additional heating of the bathroom, it must have a moisture-proof housing. Otherwise, excessive moisture will easily penetrate inside the device, which will lead to its damage, and in the worst case, to wiring problems or fire.

For children, devices with a heated body are strictly prohibited. So, oil coolers during operation heat up significantly. Accidental contact may cause burns. Therefore, for the nursery, only oilers with a protective cover are chosen. But convectors or infrared panels do not heat up during operation. They can be safely placed where children live.

Finally. For children, it is better to choose electric convectors. For damp and damp rooms, devices in a moisture-proof housing are selected.

4. Choosing a control system and additional features

The simplest and most budgetary system is mechanical. This is, perhaps, all its virtues. At the same time, it is less functional and gives large errors when setting the desired temperature. The mechanics are more prone to wear, and when automatically turned off or on, it makes a rather loud click. Given that clicking can be repeated at intervals of 15-25 minutes, not everyone likes it.

Electronic systems are more accurate in settings. You can set the temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree. In addition, they can be programmed with the operating mode. Some models are able to remember one or more temperature modes and run them at the request of the owner. The electronics work absolutely silently. The only way it can interfere with the user is that the display is too bright. Another disadvantage is the high price.

Equipment may have additional functions, which is very convenient. The simplest of them is self-shutdown when the set temperature is reached. The presence of a thermostat and temperature sensors also expands the functionality of the device. It will be able to turn off when the room is heated to a temperature determined by the owner, and then turn on when the temperature drops below the set value. And the built-in wi-fi module will provide communication with the user, who will be able to set up the heater while being away from home.

Finally. More precise settings and wide functionality for heaters with automatic control. They are also more convenient to use, as they give the user more additional options.

We have compiled a rating of the best devices of various types for home heating.

Thermex Frame 2000E

Powerful convector for heating rooms up to 25 m2. m. Can be installed on the floor or mounted on the wall. The case is waterproof, which makes it possible to put the device in a place with high humidity, for example, in a bathroom.

The device uses a ceramic heating element, so the amount of oxygen in the air is not reduced. Management – electronic type with remote control. It is possible to regulate the temperature, a thermostat, a timer are installed. In case of tipping or overheating, the protection is activated and the device automatically turns off.

Zanussi ZOH/CS-11W

Powerful 11-section oil cooler. Designed for heating areas up to 27 sq. meters. Only floor installation is possible. For ease of movement, the equipment has wheels and a handle. Mechanical type control with the ability to adjust power and temperature. One working mode. In case of overheating, an automatic shutdown is activated. The special shape of the body gives a fireplace effect, that is, increased air circulation around the device. So it heats up the room faster.

Let’s summarize which heater is better to choose for an apartment. The best option is an oil cooler. It is environmentally friendly, works silently, retains heat for a long time. Many models are equipped with a timer, which makes it possible to program the inclusion, for example, when the owner returns from work. For children’s rooms, the best choice is an electric convector. It does not heat up, so there is no risk of getting burned by touching the red-hot body.

Convectors are also good for apartments with large windows and high ceilings or spacious private houses.
