Finding the perfect electric heater

Electric heating is common in a number of modern apartments because it is safer and easier to install and repair. One thing electric heating has never had a great reputation for however is being economical; but this needn’t be the case.
Materials What your heater is made from will determine how much electricity it needs to use and how much money it needs to burn. Aluminum is a superb conductor of heat and is also lightweight so makes an ideal outer shell.
Power The higher the power output the warmer the heater will be so, in turn, this means the more electricity the heater will use and the more expensive it will be to run. That said, if you chose the correct heater for the size of room you want to heat, then you will have to use it less often. To achieve an adequate room temperature of around 22° Celsius (70° Fahrenheit) you will need to burn 1kw of electricity for every 14 cubic metres of space.
Thermostat A good thermostat is a real money saver when it comes to electronic heating. If you have a precise digital thermostat in your heater it will gauge the optimal time to turn its heating element on and off whilst in operation. Electronic heaters with poor thermostats will waste electricity by overheating a room; leaving you with an uncomfortable and inconsistent heat.
Helloooo…. it’s summer Summer is actually the best time to buy heating because, like winter coats and gloves, heaters are out of season and most likely on sale.
Even if you do not use your heater until later on in the year you should still look after it. Clean any dust away from it with a cloth or vacuum cleaner attachment. Not only will debris cause an unpleasant odour if it is burned by your heater when it is eventually turned on but there is always the potential of bacteria or allergens from this detritus being spread around your room by hot air when the heater is in operation.
