Room heaters are an essential electronic appliance for those who live in the colder parts of the world and also for others who experience chilly winters.  Not only do heaters keep homes and rooms warm but also cosy. If you are someone who is looking for a room heater then you may definitely be spoilt for choice since there is no dearth of the types, prices, colours and varieties of room heaters available. The following given list focuses on the main types of room heaters that you can choose from based on your requirement and preference:

1. Convection heaters

Convection heaters are those which are filled with heat transfer oil to radiate the heat from the external surface area. The heat can be regulated through the thermostat. The best thing about them is that they are low maintenance and do not need to be cleaned on a regular basis as well.  Infact they never need to be refilled and this too is a positive about them.  They are great for bedrooms but if you are looking for a heater that quickly heats up the space, then you must not choose this option as their effect spreads slowly.

3. Infrared and radiant heaters

Radiant heaters are those who provide instant heat, thanks to the infrared rays.  They are perfect for those who need instant and quick heat since they offer direct heat.  They are highly energy efficient and yet silent in their working.  Some of them are made using wooden cabinets and hence they look like wooden furniture rather than an appliance, thus proving to be apt for dining areas and living rooms.

4. Micathermic panel heaters

These types of heaters are unique in the sense that they are hybrid in nature. They release 80% convection heat and 20% direct radiant heat.  They are extremely lightweight and some of the models are wall mountable as well.  they are silent in their working and do not emit any light.  But remember that they are hot to touch and hence not recommended for those who have kids and pets at home.
