Radiant heaters are directional and heat the objects near it or in its path. These are ideal for a living room, bedroom or den and tend to retain heat for longer, even when the power is turned off.

Ceramic Heaters. A type of convection heater. Ceramic space heaters warm the air as it blows over a hot ceramic plate or coils inside the unit. The body of the heater stays cool to the touch, which makes it popular for homes with kids and pets. 

Infrared heaters . A type of radiant heater. Infrared space heaters are generally more effective in warming a person or a small area, rather than a larger space. You might see these in a bedroom or even under your desk, if you’re always cold in the office.

Newer models are safer than ever and many include space heater safety features such as adjustable thermostat , automatic overheat protection, tip-over protection, programmable timer, remote control  and cool-to-the touch features.
