Small space heaters are typically used when the main heating system is unavailable, inadequate, or when central heating is too costly to install or operate. In some cases, small space heaters can be less expensive to use if you only want to heat one room or supplement inadequate heating in one room. They can also boost the temperature of rooms used by individuals who are sensitive to cold without overheating your entire home.
Small space heaters work by convection (the circulation of air in a room) or radiant heating. Radiant heaters emit infrared radiation that directly heats objects and people within their line of sight, and are a more efficient choice when you will be in a room for only a few hours and can stay within the line of sight of the heater. They can also be more efficient when you will be using a room for a short period because they save energy by directly heating the occupant of the room and the occupant's immediate surroundings rather than the whole room.
Safety is a top consideration when using small space heaters. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that more than 1,700 residential fires every year are associated with the use of space heaters, resulting in more than 80 deaths and 160 injuries nationally.
Small space heaters are classified as vented and unvented or \"vent-free.\" Unvented combustion small space heaters are not recommended for use inside your home because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. They may also bring unwanted nitrogen oxide into the home; nitrogen oxide can cause asthma and other respiratory problems. These heaters can also introduce water vapor into the home, which can result in mold and other structural damage. Most states have banned unvented kerosene heaters for use in the home. California, and some other cities and counties, have banned the use of unvented natural gas heaters in the home.
Vented, small space portable heaters are designed to be located next to an outside wall, so that the flue gas vent can be installed through a ceiling or directly through the wall to the outside. Look for sealed combustion or \"100% outdoor air\" units, which have a duct to bring outside into the combustion chamber. Sealed combustion heaters are much safer to operate than other types of space heaters, and operate more efficiently because they do not draw in the heated air from the room and exhaust it to the outdoors. They are also less likely to backdraft and adversely affect indoor air quality.
Less expensive (and less efficient) units use the room air for combustion. They do not have a sealed glass front to keep room air away from the heating elements and should not be confused with a sealed combustion heater.
Electric small space heaters can be more expensive to operate than combustion space heaters. Although they avoid indoor air quality problems, electric small space heaters still pose burn and fire hazards and should be used with caution.
For convection (non-radiant) space heaters, the best types incorporate a heat transfer liquid, such as oil, that is heated by the electric element. The heat transfer fluid provides some heat storage, allowing the heater to cycle less and to provide a more constant heat source.
They are portable heaters that provide warmth in concentrated areas in a room. Instead of having to heat the whole house, you can place one of these devices in a part of your home where you want extra warmth and enjoy the heat at a fraction of the cost.
The wattage varies from about 750 to 1500 watts, which is about two to four times the wattage of a heated blanket. Because of this, there can be a wide range in how much you may spend when you use a space heater in your home.
In addition to temperature controls, you can also opt for safety features like an automatic shut-off. This is especially important if there are concerns about the heater being knocked on its side or toppling over. If that happens, it should turn off, otherwise, the risk of fire is imminent.
Some models also come with a fan feature. This innovation is life-changing because instead of having a molten lava area within 10 inches of the heater and an igloo-like environment across the room, a blower fan within the unit can help distribute heat more evenly throughout the room.
There are some scary statistics about space heaters. In the case of home fires with fatalities, the culprit was one of these innocuous household items a whopping 79% of the time. This speaks to the fact that people leave them on and unattended, especially when sleeping.
The main reason that they cause fires has to do with the proximity of flammable objects to the heater. Remember to keep anything that can catch on fire at least three feet away from the unit. This includes clothing, furniture, drapes, bedding, and mattresses.
There are multiple benefits from investing in an air conditioner-heater combo. For starters, most of these units are lightweight and compact. That means you can quickly move them around without having to struggle. In fact, you might not even have to carry most of them as the majority of these units are on wheels.
Another fantastic dual unit, this air conditioner and heater will keep you cool during the summer and warm during the winter. It produces over 12,000 BTU and is great for smaller rooms up to 250 square feet. Installation is simple, and the unit even comes with handles along with castor wheels to move it around with ease.
In an effort to promote energy conservation Northern Electric Cooperative sells residential Marathon electric water heaters. These residential water heaters play an integral role in keeping electric rates low and saving energy.
Northern Electric homeowners who connect their water heater to the load management system may qualify for hundreds of dollars worth of rebates on a new water heater. Only one water heater rebate can be redeemed per structure every 10 years. Members may also be eligible for a $6 per month bill credit for having a water heater connected to load control. The load control system allows Northern Electric, in partnership with power-supplier East River Electric Power Cooperative, to cycle the water heaters on and off during times of peak demand on the system. Cycling water heaters on and off can save energy at times of high demand while also cutting down overall power costs.
Only Northern Electric members can purchase a new 85, or 100-gallon residential Marathon water heater from the co-op. Members can purchase a water heater at the Northern Electric main office in Bath or at the Redfield office from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during normal business hours. Purchases and pickups on weekends will come with an additional charge.

For leaker replacement of a Marathon water heater under warranty after regular business hours please call 605-225-0310 or 1-800-529-0310.
Gas-fueled space heaters usually use propane, kerosene, or another fuel to create heat. Their pilot light burns the gas as fuel to warm the room. Electric space heaters plug into a standard electrical wall socket.
Conductive space heaters use electricity to produce heat via heating elements (usually metal coils). They create warmth by having direct contact with another object or person. For example, heated seats in a vehicle are conductive heat.
Many people prefer to use propane heaters because they heat more efficiently than their electric counterparts. Overall, propane heat is less expensive and burns cleaner, leaving less of an impact on the environment.
We like the heavy-duty grill on the F232000, protecting the heating mechanism. This propane heater will automatically shut off if it detects low oxygen levels, its pilot light goes out, or it tips over.
An electric water heater is a tank that heats water with high-voltage electric heating rods that run vertically through the tank. Water is heated starting at the center of the tank, radiating outward.
A gas water heater is a tank that heats water from a gas-fired burner located at the bottom of the tank. Hot water starts at the bottom and rises upward, where it is drawn off the top by a discharge tube.
Gas water heaters require a gas line and an open flame (at the bottom of the heater) to heat the water. Occasionally, the user must relight the gas pilot light with a lighter or a piezoelectric built-in lighter.
While an electric water heater does heat water slower and more expensively than the gas models do, it heats the water more efficiently. The heating rods are submerged in the water in a sealed tank, so there is very little heat loss.
Though gas water heaters burn hotter, they are less efficient than electric water heaters because much of the energy output is wasted through the vent at top. The vent is necessary for discharging toxic gases.
Electric water heaters span the very best and the very worst types of electricity supplies. At the best, though still rare, is electricity supplied by solar or wind. At the worst is electricity supplied by dirty coal-fired or nuclear power plants.
Gas water heaters occupy the middle range for environmental impact. Gas is never as bad as electricity supplied by coal-powered plants, but never as good as wind or solar electricity. Gas is a non-renewable fossil fuel. While gas has long been thought of as a cleaner type of power than electricity, more recently some regions have enacted measures to ban the use of natural gas.
