When I told my wife we should get a couple of portable heaters, she asked what I had in mind.
Well, I said that we should get something that is good quality so that we don’t have to go shopping for portable heaters anytime soon.
I wanted them to last us for a long period of time so that we would have perfect comfort while relaxing in our home. When I work in my office, I have always felt a little chilly. A big part of the reason is because our HVAC system is old and it’s not very energy efficient, therefore I don’t crank the heater with the thermostat settings. I figured if we could find some energy efficient portable heaters, that would keep us comfortable without having to crank the heating system and have costly gas bills. So I looked at a bunch of modern portable heaters. They have all kinds, infrared, oil-filled, ceramic, and fan heaters. I was actually amazed with all the different makes and models and the different safety features as well. Most of them had the auto-shut off if the heater tipped and I felt that was important to prevent causing a fire. There were even heaters that had a built in UV light that works to eliminate harmful pathogens which is something that is commonly used in air purification systems. Honestly out of all the portable heaters, I wanted the one with the UV technology. We never had a fancy air purification system, so I felt like this would help keep us comfortable and prevent us from getting sick. Well, so far after using these new heaters, we have been super comfortable. I especially feel better in my office. The best thing is that the energy bills haven’t risen much at all because of the energy efficiency of the heaters.
