Okay, I just did research on this last Christmas for my husband’s basement office. The important thing here is that not every space heater is one size fits all. A lot depends on the size of the space you need to heat and the way you want it heated. There are two types of heating – radiant or convection.
Radiant heaters (as opposed to convection heaters) heat objects rather than the air. This makes them a good choice as a personal heater in a chilly office or workshop. If you buy a radiant heater expecting it to raise the temperature in the whole room, you'll be disappointed.
Convection space heaters are available in a wide array of styles and designs. One newer design, micathermic flat-panel heaters, can stand upright or be wall-mounted to save space and protect children. The mineral mica in this type of space heater warms quickly to heat all of the air in a room rather than a small area.
After much research, I purchased the Lasko 5115 from Lowe’s. It is a convection, micathermic heater. It warms the entire basement, which is a very large area, quite quickly. It is lightweight, cool to the touch, its coils are not exposed and it has an auto off safety feature. My husband uses the remote quite often as he is usually at his computer or on the phone and can’t get up to adjust the thermostat.
In short, we love this heater! I am buying another one for our bathroom!
I found this at Lowe’s for $49.97 with no shipping charge if you ship to store.
