Naperville, IL, December 17, 2020, ZEXPRWIRE, When shopping for a space heater, you’ll come across a lot of words, some of these words describe types of heaters and others describe heating technologies. Convection heating describes the process of warm air rising and cool air falling. As air passes across a heating element, it circulates up and into your space. The cooler air falls and the cycle starts again. Radiant heating, on the other hand, is more direct. Heat is literally radiated off a heating element to the surrounding area. This type of heating is best for spot heating and warming small rooms. And you may see some heaters described as fan forced. This means they use a fan to boost the way they heat your space, speeding up the heating process or pushing the heat to cover a larger area. Many heaters use a combination of these technologies to warm your space. Oil-flled radiators are a good example of this. They’re filled with heat conserving oil, which moves through the body of the heater and radiates heat off the fins,then warm air gradually circulates throughout the room. They often don’t use fans, so they’re super quiet, although they may take a little longer to heat up. But once your space is warm, it will stay warm longer, even when you shut the heater off. The HeatCore space heater takes all of these technologies into account. They radiate heat off a panel and convection circulates warm air throughout your space with and or without the use of a fan, depending on your room size.
HeatCore space heaters heat up a lot more quickly than their oilfield counterparts, and they’re also safe to touch. The convection ceramic heaters are convection heaters that use a ceramic heating element hidden deep within the body of the heater, so they’re safe to the touch.
The HeatCore space heater oscillates for even coverage throughout your space. It works great for nurseries or rooms with children or pets. Infrared heaters are a little different there, radiator heaters. And instead of warming the air, they warn people or objects in their path. If you’re standing close to an infrared heater, you’ll immediately begin to feel warm when you turn it on and you’ll instantly notice a difference when it shuts off. So they are not the most efficient. The main benefit with infrared heat is that it doesn’t dry out your air like traditional heat, so your moisture levels stay just like you like them.
For the most part, all these heaters work well. Choosing one is pretty much up to personal preference. But here are a few tips. If you want something to leave in one room for most of the season, the new hybrid HeatCore heater is the best option. While they may take a little bit longer to heat up their super efficient and almost completely silent. Perfect for your bedroom or wherever you watch TV. And honestly, infrared heaters are great for this purpose too if you like the look of a piece of furniture then get an infrared. The main difference is whether you want something that heats up immediately or is super energy efficient. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a heater, you can pick up and take with you from room to room, the HeatCore hybrid ceramic or even basic convection heater might be better for you. Most people use space heaters to save energy. This starts with choosing one that’s powerful enough for your space but not too powerful, or you may see it reflected in your bills.
As a rule of thumb, you need about 10 watts of heating power for every square foot of your space. So for one hundred and fifty square foot space, you’ll want about a 1500 watt heater. The HeatCore space heater runs efficiently at 1200 Watt high fan mode and 700 Watt low fan mode. 1 to 3 hours timer function. There are also some features you can look for, especially in newer heaters that are there specifically to conserve energy. Programmable thermostats let you set your exact temperature and the heater maintains that temperature by turning on and off as needed. And some models have timers, so you can set the heater to turn off after a specified amount of time. Most space heaters are very safe, including the HeatCore space heater which include safety features like tip over and over heat protection. Some models do retain heat, so you may need to be careful about touching them while they operate. But many heaters stay completely cool to the touch even when they’re on. And if safety is one of your top priorities, you can always look for a heater with a safety certification. And finally, you can usually find safety tips in your owner’s manual as well as our article. By the way, if you’re looking to heat a garage or non insulated space, you want something that’s made of heavy duty materials and can stand up to really cold temperatures.
