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.
Halogen: There are several types of heaters in the market like Halogen, Fan, Quartz Heaters......
  • A halogen heater uses halogen elements rather than electrical coils or propane or butane conductors to provide the source of heat.
  • This halogen heater also comes with oscillating tabletop fan so as to heat the air when it circulates through the oscillating halogen heater, then propel the heated air in the nearby space.
  • There are some more types of heaters that use blowers to throw warm air in a direct line from the heating elements.
  • 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.
    Convector: 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.
