Buying any new appliance can be daunting. Which features do you need? How do you get the best value? This is particularly true of heaters because there are so many brands to choose from. Which is the best one for you? Well, here’s our guide to the top three heater brands on the market and what they have to offer.
Factors to Consider
Before comparing different heater brands, you need to know what kind of heater you’re looking for. There are three basic types to choose from: Radiant heaters produce heat within them, which then spreads through the rest of the room. Convection heaters warm the air and then circulate it throughout your home. Finally, combination heaters use both methods, warming the air with radiant heat before circulating it.
There are also safety issues to look at when considering heater brands. An unsafe heater could be a fire hazard or even cause carbon monoxide poisoning. To ensure safety, look for a heater that’s certified by the Underwriters Laboratories, Intertek (ETL), or the Canadian Standards Association.
