A heater is an appliance that is designed to provide warmth and comfort to a space. 

Indoor Heaters

Indoor heaters are designed to provide warmth to indoor spaces such as homes, apartments, and offices.  They are typically powered by electricity, gas, or propane. Some of the most common types of indoor heaters include:

  • Convection Heaters:¬†¬†Convection heaters work by warming the air in a room.¬† They use natural convection currents to distribute warm air throughout the room, making them ideal for larger spaces.
  • Radiant Heaters:¬† Radiant heaters work by emitting infrared radiation, which warms the objects and people in a room directly.¬† They are perfect for smaller spaces and are often used in bathrooms or bedrooms.
  • Fan-forced Heaters:¬† Fan-forced heaters work by using a fan to blow warm air into a room. They are quick to heat up a room and are ideal for spaces that need to be heated quickly.
  • Oil-filled Heaters:¬† Oil-filled heaters work by heating oil that is contained within the heater.¬† The oil then radiates heat into the room.¬† They are a¬†suitable option for heating larger rooms and are known for their quiet operation.

  • Freestanding Heaters:¬† Freestanding patio heaters are tall, standalone heaters that can be moved around as needed. They typically provide heat in a circular pattern and are a popular choice for outdoor restaurants.
  • Wall-Mounted Heaters:¬† Wall-mounted patio heaters are mounted to a wall or ceiling and provide heat in a directional pattern. They are ideal for smaller outdoor spaces such as balconies or patios.
