ETL Certified For Safety
Designed to heat indoor spaces, infrared heaters are a great choice for heating any room. They're safe to use, easy to move, and often have attractive finishes.
They're also inexpensive to run, and most are ETL-certified for safety with auto shut-off protection. Some also feature tip-over protection, which is a sensor and shut-off mechanism that turns off the heater automatically when it's tipped over by a child or pet.
The main difference between an infrared heater and other space heaters is that they don't heat via hot air-forced airflow. Instead, they heat through infrared radiation that has a similar effect to the sun's rays; objects near the heater absorb the heat from it and get warmer as a result.
Infrared heaters have a higher electrical output than other space heaters, and that makes them more costly to run. That said, you can still save money if you choose an infrared heater that has low and medium-power heating modes.
Most infrared heaters are capped at 1500 watts, which is the maximum amount of power that standard household outlets can handle. But if you have a larger room, you may want to consider an infrared heater with a higher wattage to increase your heating capacity.
