Owning a space heater can be very convenient in enclosed spaces such as an office or a reading room. With the rising costs of home heating, everyone is looking for more cost effective ways to stay warm in the winter. High efficiency heating systems, programmable thermostats, increased insulation and weatherproofing windows and doors all help in reducing your heating bill. But have you ever considered using a space heater to help lower your heating bills further? Using space heaters as a supplement to your regular heating system can not only help lower your heating bill, but it can also help the environment as well. By lowering your thermostat by just 5 degrees and using space heaters in frequently used rooms, you can eliminate as much as 800 pounds of CO2 emissions annually.
Today’s space heaters are far safer than their predecessors. Look at these little heaters at your local stores and you will find that these are not your father’s space heaters
. Most modern heaters are equipped with auto shut-off switches that turn the heater off when tipped over, and some are encased to prevent accidental burns. Also, many have built in thermostats that help regulate the heat and save energy. Some have blower fans and some even oscillate.
You have to choose the right size storage heater for your home. It is basically a compromise between the longest expected cold period and the price and space needed for the heater to run. If the storage heater is too big and the costs will be higher, with a big impact on the building's space; to too small the cost of daytime electric heating will be very high. Another disadvantage is that as the heating is on all the time, if the owner has to leave suddenly for a few days, this can mean all this heating is wasted. A space heater
works best in small rooms because the heat does not disperse well. However, in small places, the heat will be consistently warm and comfortable.
