    What are the different types of space heaters?

    There are a range of different types of heaters available from small electric heaters to the more industrial diesel/paraffin-powered heaters. Choose from a range of wattages and popular heat types such as fan or convection.

    Portable Fan Heaters

    Portable fan heaters use a fan to pass air over a heating element, the heated air rises and warms the room where the heater is placed. They are the most popular type as they heat up a room quickly. These small electric heaters are lightweight and easy to use. All you need is a plug socket, and you are ready to go.

    Portable Convection Heaters

    Portable convection heaters work by drawing in cooler air from underneath the unit. The air then passes over a heated element inside the appliance and rises back out of the top. This warm air heats the room and when cooler it sinks to the bottom of the room and the process is repeated. Convection heaters are lightweight and easy to carry. Ideal for homes and offices.
