5. Usha QH3002 Halogen Room Heater Usha QH 3002

This element heater is basic, but efficient. Boasting of low power consumption, the heater uses halogen light, radiating heat through infrared waves that are generated by the light. 

Heating Capacity 

The Usha QH3002 room heater is equipped with two heating positions, meaning it can be adjusted to heating power of 400 watts or 800 watts. It does not have a fan, but radiates heat from two quartz elements. This makes it suitable for a small room or for heating the immediate surroundings. 

Safety 

While the body of the heater is plastic, the elements in the front are guarded by steel grills, which can get hot. However, it comes fortified with a safety tip-over switch, which ensures the heater is cut off in case it falls over. On the downside, this heater does not automatically cut-off in case of overheating. 

Ease-of-Use 

Weighing around 2kgs, this heater is portable. Its positions and heat settings are adjustable, making it pliable to usage as per requirement. Hooks at the back of the device allow for the cord to be easily mounted out of the way. 

Durability 

The body of the heater is protected by a powder coated finish that saves from corrosion. The quartz elements need to be changed when they wear out. The warranty period for the product is one year. 

All together, the Usha QH3002 room heater scores modestly on all significant measures.

4. Bajaj Blow Hot Halogen Room Heater Bajaj Blow Hot

An ISI marked product, one of the key differentiating features of this heater is the 2 year warranty it comes with. Very few heaters in this price range come with a 2-year warranty, which just goes to show the faith Bajaj has in its product. 

Heating Capacity 

Two inbuilt heating elements, each with a 1000 watt power, are supplemented by a fan that circulates the warm air around the room. You can adjust the heat settings to 1000 or 2000 watts, depending on how cold the weather is. 

Safety 

A sturdy blower, this is not something that might get knocked around. Two safety features adorn the Bajaj Blow Hot, an automatic cut-off to prevent overheating as well as a thermal cut-off that can interrupt electrical current if necessary. 

Ease-of-Use 

Weighing 4kgs, this heater is not easily portable. Adjustable heat settings make for a convenient feature. One can also modify the height and tilt of this blower for better accuracy of direction. 

Durability 

Furnished with a resilient plastic body and robust in its make, this heater scores high on durability. The 2 year warranty is a resounding reminder of the same. 

The Bajaj Blow Hot might be pegged at a higher cost, but if you buy this model, you can rest assured for two years after the purchase.

3. Nova NH 1201 Room Heater Nova NH-1201F

Aesthetic and elegant with a white plastic body, this room heater would blend in well in your drawing room or office. Equipped with almost the same features as the Bajaj Blow Hot, the Nova NH 1201 heater is however, priced lower, and comes with rotating fans. 

Heating Capacity 

Quartz heating elements allow the user to select the 1000 watt or 2000 watt settings. The Rota-matic Swivel technology ensures better dispersion of heat with the rotating 12-fin fan. 

Safety 

Safety features include overheat protection, which means it automatically turns off in case a burnout is suspected. There is also a tip-over switch in this model, which deactivates the heater in the event of a voltage override. 

Ease-of-Use 

Variable thermostat settings, built-in handle for easy portability, revolving and tilting settings, all add to the ease of using this heater. Weighing less than a kilo, the Nova NH 1201 is light, compact and handy. 

Durability 

A plastic insulated body gives this heater a strong exterior. The heating element is made of quartz, which is expected to have a long life. An accompanying warranty puts one at ease for the duration of a year. 

This heater will look good on your desk or by your bedside while instilling you with a warm sense of luxury.

2. Orpat OEH 1250 Room Heater Orpat OEH-1250

At first glance, this heater looks quite like the Nova NH 1201, making it equally appealing aesthetically. It is a feature-packed element heater, equipped with a copper wire motor and a blower that makes it rather effective. 

Heating Capacity 

Adjustable heat settings at 1000 watts and 2000 watts with a blower to boot, means this device can heat a small to medium room effectively for extended periods of time. The fan inside ensures a uniform heating experience and frees you from having to huddle close to the heater. 

Safety 

Armed with a double safety-feature, the Orpat OEH 1220 cuts-off automatically in case of overheating and also has a separate thermal cut-off. The cool-to-touch plastic exterior, even when in use, makes it safe to have around kids or pets. 

Ease-of-Use 

A convenient handle on the top makes this device easy to lift and carry around. With a twist of a knob, you can adjust heat settings to suit your comfort. 

Durability 

The heating element is a non-sagging, stitching type, which gives it a long life. The body is made of hard plastic, making it robust. The warranty period is pegged at one year. 

Visually appealing and replete with all necessary features, this heater is priced below the Bajaj Blow Hot and Nova NH 1201, making it a value-for-money product.

1. Orpat OEH 1220 Room Heater Orpat OEH-1220 (White and Grey)

Scoring just above its cousin model at the 1st rank, the Orpat OEH 1220 has all the very same features mentioned above. What gives it that final edge then? 

It is even more compact and priced yet lower than its cousin. While the Orpat OEH 1250 weighs a little over 1.5kg, the Orpat OEH 1220 is lighter at 1.1kg, making it very easily portable. Priced the lowest among the top 5 heaters below Rs 2000, this heater offers the most value-for-money. It is also extremely popular, as can be seen in shopper reviews across online portals. 

Good things comes in small sizes, is quite true when it comes to the Orpat OEH 1220 room heater.

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.

    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.
