In Pakistan, just like summer, winter also gets too chilly, particularly in workplaces. Even if you have installed a heating system that is in use, you can still feel cold. To prevent sneezing or cough, you need a room heater which can provide warmth. While choosing cheap heaters for your office, you should consider some essential points so to get the most out of your investment:
Sort of Space You Want to be heated
The cheap room heater you are going to buy entirely depends on the type of space where you are planning to place it. In offices, different aspects need to be considered, for instance, are there any separate workstations in an office or is it just a large open space? How will you use a space heater? What is the size of the main space? By taking into account all the aspects, you can choose a space heater that holds a forced air feature. This will push the air into an office space which varies in size, shape and type of space to make it versatile.
Type of Room Heater Required for Workspace
Keeping in view the unique office space, you can select a space heater from a vast array of heating appliances available on our online store. Below, we’ll discuss the different types of room heaters so you can make the right choice:
These heaters are ideal for those suffering from the nasal or asthmatic problems. Fan heaters are lightweight, portable and compact. It can be placed anywhere in the room you like. Usually, fan heaters are considered energy efficient which means that you don’t have to worry about the electricity bill when you’ll switch on the heater.
Some fan heaters contain a “blower” feature. It provides instant heating in the severe cold season. In blower heater, a powerful motor is attached which uses high wattage and provides instant heating. Its unique design helps in adjusting the fan speed and a thermostat button to control the heating system.
Gas room heaters are more energy efficient compared to fan heaters. It aids in feeling you warm indoors by increasing the temperature of your room. But there is a significant drop in temperature outdoors. If you are living in any of the colder areas of Pakistan, then the gas heater is a must have appliance for you. It uses a butane, natural gas, LPG or propane.
In oil heater, there are hollow columns in which the oil, when heated, circulates constantly to keep the room warm. Just like other heaters, they are portable and can be placed anywhere in the room.
Depending on the model you are choosing, the heating element which helps in warming the oil can be anything whether a small flame or an electric current. In contrast to an electric heater, oil heater doesn’t get quite hot. It means that you can easily touch it. But there should be no combustible material placed near such heaters.
Convection heaters are meant to move warm air constantly and quickly without a fan and in a silent mode when heating the room. Its unique feature “tilt forward” helps you to clean the wall behind it. The classic design of a convection heater can easily blend with any décor, hence, giving your room an entirely new look. Convection heaters are usually designed to be used as a wall mounted heater, containing an electronic thermostat.
Halogen heater includes a heating element on its inside which uses electricity to provide warmth. These heaters use tubes that contain halogen to get the radiant heat. The tubes are a mixture of non-metallic elements that get heated quickly while creating a hot and health-giving heat source. A grid is available at the front of the unit. It pushes the heat out with the help of internal blowers.
The Capacity of the Room Heater
If the heating space is 150 square feet or more, then 1500 – 2000 watt heater can be ideal for space. You can confirm this by checking the specifications on the product you are planning to buy. Simply divide the number of watts by ten and you’ll get the number of square feet that your heater can warm up.
Built-in Safety Features
Some of the safety features that every heater should have are as follows:
- It should be turned off when it’s banged down
- The heater should be cool when touched, instead of burning the fingers if anybody touched it accidentally
- It should automatically be turned off when space gets enough warmth
