Electric heaters are oftentimes categorized by style; the style you choose depends on the area you're heating. See the chart below for additional information on the different electric heater styles:
||Portable Space Heaters
||These heaters are portable and designed to heat small areas or specific rooms. They usually offer a number of safety features to prevent safety hazards. The most popular types of space heaters are fan-forced or oil-filled. Read the electric space heater guide for more information, or see our selection of space heaters.|
||Garages and shops aren't as insulated as our homes, and regular electric space heaters don't provide enough heat to warm these areas. Garage heaters provide high output heat and blasts of warm air directly onto the body. Read the garage heater guide for additional information, or see our selection of garage heaters.|
||Perfect for bedrooms and hallways, these heaters use electric resistance to warm the air that passes through it and pulls colder air to the bottom. They're often popular because they're low profile, safe, and easy to install. Read the baseboard heater guide for to learn more, or see our selection of baseboard heaters.|
