Consumers have a lot to consider when deciding on which portable heater will most suit their needs.
There are different benefits to each of thefan, oil, ceramic, radiant and micathermic heaters on the market.
Nancy Humphreys, senior category manager at Kambrook, explained some of the pros and cons.
“With a wide range of portable heaters available, remember that each product is suited to a particular environment,” she said.
“Ceramic heaters are ideal for small to mid-size living areas, such as bedrooms.Portable and affordable, fan heaters are great for personal heating in smaller spaces such as studies.
“As one of the more versatile options, oil heaters are great for all sized, closed living areas and radiant heaters offer instant, personal heat and are ideal for use in larger open plan spaces.”

“When it comes to thedifferences between convection and radiant heat there are some key points to remember.Radiant heaters emit heat from a hot surface (e.g. the glowing red bars in a radiator) to generate heat without directly warming the air.
“Radiant heaters are ideal in larger, open plan areas, and spaces that have high ceilings which do not retain warm, heated air. Radiant heaters do not dry out the air as quickly as most other forms of heating.
“Convection heaters fill a space with warmth by heating air. These are ideal for smaller spaces sealed against draughts, where the warm air can be continually reheated.
She saidmicathermic heaters were different to other types of heaters and could be a better choice than an oil, fan or radiant heater.
“Micathermic heaters can heat up quickly and evenly, reaching full power output in just minutes. Offering instant warmth, this type of heating requires less time and energy to bring the room up to temperature.
