Best Space Heaters // Ceramic Space Heaters // Portable Heaters

We reviewed our favorite heaters and found a variety of styles and models for you to choose from. Whether you occupy a cozy cottage or drafty loft, we’ve got you covered.

Take a look at some of the best space heaters we’ve found!

Known for their exquisite design and durable craftsmanship, Dyson’s Fan/Heaters are top of the line for space heaters.

So what’s the big feature?

Jet Focus Control = Airflow.  

Heaters aren’t all equal and not many can heat a room evenly. The Dyson can!

If you’ve bought other heaters before, you know that it tends to focus on only a specific area – the area it’s pointed toward. Not a prob for the Dyson! It uses an advanced fan mechanism to cycle air throughout the room while its heating.

As a long-range personal heater it can heat a big room fast, and evenly. (perfect for living rooms and basements!)

Another key benefit is the Intelligent Thermostat which lets you set the desired temperature – Dyson will automatically reach that temp in minutes and steadily maintain it!

(other heaters have temp setting, but constantly turn on and off – Dyson knows how to pace heat output and maintain it consistently)

The only downside is the cost, it’s super expensive (a bit hyper actually!).  See Here >


  • Whisper quiet. You won’t even hear it!
  • Remote Control – download Dyson’s app to control  ON / OFF  and heater temp, anywhere
  • Beautiful design – no need to hide it when guests come over
  • Heater in the winter // Fan in the summer time (fan is quiet too – good for bedrooms!)
  • Energy efficient. Since it doesn’t constantly start and stop, the most efficient power level is maintained
  • No spinning blades
  • Sleep timer for running at night or kids room
  • Heater will auto shut off if tipped over (must-have for homes with children!)

This powerful little heater (1,500 Watt) has 2-heat settings and an internal thermostat, which helps regulate the temperature and save energy. It uses ceramic heating technology .

Cool touch heat setting means you won’t have to worry about burning yourself on this heater.

Using modern heat-safety features it’s safe enough to use around children or in their room.

This little heater packs a punch and is perfect for heating up small, tidy spaces. With a chic modern look , this heater is compact and will certainly fit into any home or office environment, without looking out of place.

Place it on your nightstand, on your desk, on a table – mostly anywhere in your home!

Little personal heaters like this, and all the ones we are reviewing, help save you money because you only need to heat the room you are in! Plus, this model comes with a 3 year warranty – which is great!

Pros –  compact, modern, heats up quickly, kid safe space heaters

Cons –  quite noisy, can be unstable on certain types of flooring

( Similar Honeywell Heaters:  HHF175W, HHF360V, HHF370B, HeatGenius HCE840B)

There’s many tower-style heaters, but with Lasko there is a big difference.

It offers a programmable thermostat timer  for up to 8 hours of set-it and forget-it warmth. This is a great feature that can ensure your room isn’t heated for too long, which adds up to energy savings! (So many space heaters are constantly turning on and off)

The maximum power of this heater is 1500W . It’s equipped with a  ceramic heating element, which pushes the air through the ceramic heating coils so that the whole room is heated.

Widespread oscillation also distributes the warm air evenly.

There are 2 heat settings , plus an auto setting. All of these features are controlled via remote control.

Safety wise, this heater has over-heat protection and a cool touch exterior. It has a built-in handle for easy movement, and a storage space for the remote is located within the heater. So, you shouldn’t lose it!

Pros –  quick start, very quiet, heats rooms quickly, timer function

Cons –  can feel a bit flimsy, few safety features

This attractive heater is bigger than some of the other models we’ve looked at. That being said, it’s also better at heating up a whole room! 

** Def one of the best space heaters for placing on a table or shelf

Vornado Heater comes with 2-heat settings ( 750-watt and 1500-watt ) as well as an adjustable thermostat.  It’s certainly powerful enough to heat good size rooms and is great for home office or a bedroom. 

The construction is powder-coated steel , with all metal control dials and an integrated handle. The great thing about this heater is the Vortex Action technology, which fully circulates warm air  around the room. This space heater comes loaded with safety features.

Despite the metal construction, the cabinet is cool to the touch . If that’s not clever enough, then consider the following:

  • 2 stage auto shut-off
  • Anti-tip technology
  • Shuts off automatically, if excessive heat is detected.

All of this makes for a safer, more effective space heater. It also has a dust reducing inlet grille, cord storage compartment AND a 5-year satisfaction guarantee. While pricier than some of the other heaters we’re reviewing, it is a whole room heater. Plus, all those little extras add up into a great little product!

Pros –  good heat, quiet, strong construction

Cons –  needs regular cleaning, works best in smaller rooms

A different style of heater completely, now, is the Bionaire Ceramic Tower Heater. 

(Bionaire is a well-known brand producing some of the best space heaters worldwide)

Heater can also function year-round – heater in the winter or fan in the summer. This gives you double the product for your money. It has an easy to read LED display for easy temperature control.

The oscillation feature helps to distribute the desired temperature evenly, throughout your room. Two heat settings are featured on this heater and it also has a cool touch plastic casing.

Other safety features include: tip-over protection, auto safety shut-off, manual user reset, and overheat protection. The LED feature allows you to choose your desired temperature or use the Stay On feature, which will provide continuous maximum heat.

There is also a remote control for even greater ease of use! No need to remove yourself from your blankets to turn off the heater or change the temperature! Furthermore, it’s perfect for medium to large rooms, and the tower design saves space.

Pros:   great temperature sensor, quiet and efficient

Cons:   have a short operating life, remote control can be fault

Honeywell’s Heat Genius is large enough to heat large rooms.

6-heat settings – you can easily control your desired temperature, and it heats up quickly with PTC Ceramic Heating technology.

Top wattage is 1,500 watts and is super easy to use – it comes with a remote control!

Offering a variety of heat safety features and quiet mode for night settings – it’s perfect living rooms and bedrooms!

Quiet Mode setting uses a lower heat output and activates a small fan to create a more gentle white noise sound. Online reviews note that the heater has a soothing sound and is easy to sleep through.  

For safety features, this Honeywell heater has an automatic shut-off called safety tip , in case the heater is accidentally covered or tips over.

Also, included is over-heat protection and is manufactured with specific heat-resistant plastics.

Pros –  tiny and attractive, heats small spaces excellently

Cons –  buttons can be tricky to use

This fan heater packs a punch!

Offers 2 heat settings –  1000 Watt or 1500 Watt , your space will be warm in no time! A more traditional looking fan heater, it adjusts to various angles.  This handy function directs the heat where you want it to go. A DC (Direct Current) motor cooling fan pushes the heat rapidly around the room.

Although it doesn’t have a tip-over shut down function, it’s ETL listed and approved for utmost safety. The maximum tilt of this heater is 90°, which is pretty incredible and directs the heat straight upwards!

This is an ideal addition for bedrooms on colder nights, or those mornings when you just don’t want to face emerging from under the covers.

Pros –  heats quickly and powerfully, 90° tilt, stable base

Cons –  no thermostat included, no tip-over safety feature, quite loud.

This is a powerful personal space heater, with a compact construction!

The upscale design of this product will complement any room. Its small size means that it won’t intrude on your home design or take up much space either. We think this heater is perfect for the office , where cold fingers can be the bane of keyboard typists the world over!

A safe ceramic heating element also has a fan for quick heating of the space, and you can choose from two colors: black or white , depending on what fits best with your decor. Air is forced through the heating coils instead of dispersing naturally, which makes the heating process much quicker.

It is a whisper quiet heater, so it won’t disturb you. This is another reason we think it’s perfect for the office. It has two heat settings and a cool touch exterior for safety.

Another safety feature is the overheat shut-off function, which is an essential.

Pros –  incredibly quiet, a lot of heat for a compact product

Cons –  no thermostat, control knob can overheat, can be tricky to move

This is certainly a more obvious style of heater than some of the other ones we are reviewing.

However, if you want good heat and fast, this is the heater for you! High power, with two heat settings ( 700W and 1000W ) this heater is also tip safe (shutting off if it falls over).

For added protection, it has a flame-resistant plastic casing. This smart design includes a cool to the touch plastic handle with an adjustable horizontal tilt , so you can direct the heat to where you need it the most.

The 14-inch reflector dish also gets heat to where it’s most needed, with 70° of oscillation, for full room coverage. You’re not just going to heat up one small spot with this heater.

Pros –  saves energy with lower power output, silent heating

Cons –  not the most attractive product, can smell whilst on
