Type of Heater
As the name suggests this heater draws cold air over the heating element to generate warm air. This warm air then leaves the heater and rises towards the ceiling while the cool air moves in to replace it. This process continues again and again and thus the surrounding area becomes warm. Convector heater can come with or without a fan.
A fan heater works by using a fan to pass air over a heat source like a heating element. This fan is a key part of the heater design.This heats up the air which in turn warms the surrounding room. The fan carries heat away from the device, which can be made smaller without overheating.
There are several types of heaters in the market like Halogen, Fan, Quartz Heaters......
Infrared heaters creates heat just like the sun. This invisible light gets absorbed by our skin, clothes and other objects, which is how things around an infrared heater warm up.It is warmer in direct sunlight than in the normal shade as the shade blocks a lot of the light, and like the sun, infrared heaters in your home will only warm areas directly in front of it.
Oil Filled Radiator/ Column Heater
In this type of heater electricity is used to heat the oil inside the fins. Then the heat generated from the oil is transferred to the air circulating the fins or the heat generated flows around the cavities that in turn distributes heat in the surrounding area.
These heaters are nothing but personal heaters. It distributes the heat from red hot surface and heats the area in front of it.
The main advantage of a rotating heater is the deflection media that is able to spread the heat out in many directions.
Outer Body Material
Regulates the desired level of heat in your room by adjusting the temperature.
Heat setting is nothing but increasing or decreasing the temperature levels of the device as per requirement because overheating wastes energy. So, you may also increase the power of heating if you have a bigger room. In addition modern heaters have a paired thermostat through which you can control and regulate the desired level of heat in your room.
