5 Best Space Heaters to Keep Your Home Warm

Pair one of these bad boys with a nice pair of slippers, and you’ve got one cozy Saturday.


According to a 2014 study by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), the majority of Americans still use natural gas to heat their homes. But because gas prices constantly fluctuate, using a combination of electric and gas heating can help provide a more predictable and affordable heating plan. For those interested in saving more on heat this winter, consider buying an electric space heater. They’re affordable, simple to use, energy-efficient and great for heating individual rooms and small apartments. Plus, they’re safe. So whether you’re looking to lower the heating bill or get a quick fix for an inadequate heating system, there’s an electric space heater that can help you stay warm this winter.

Dyson AM09 Fan Heater

Most Innovative Heater: Dyson’s AM09 Fan Heater, which was inspired by the air currents moving over a fighter jet’s wing, uses the brand’s patented Air Multiplier technology to evenly distribute heat around a room. The heater can be turned to a “focused” setting that allows it to target a single area directly. Yes, it’s more expensive than most heaters on the market. But because this blade-less and lightweight (5.9 pounds) machine can blow cool air too, it can be used 12 months out of the year.
