15 best fan heaters

The warm wind blows quietly

Fan heater - one of the most popular appliances in the winter and in the off-season. It is compact, it is mobile, it is faster than other household heaters brings the indoor temperature to a comfortable one. But what you need to know about fan heaters, and which of them can be safely recognized as the best, we will consider further.

How to choose a suitable fan heater?

The criteria for choosing the best fan heater are simple:

  • Manufacturer. The quality of the materials used and the assembly plays an important role.
  • Heating power. It depends on it: how large a room can heat a fan heater? The most primitive calculation of the required value is 1 kW per 10 m² of the area served.
  • Heater Type. The main options are the electric spiral, TEN and ceramic plates. Heaters with nichrome spiral cheaper, but less safe (depending on the version). Tubular heaters (heating elements) can develop high power and are more relevant to heat guns used in unheated rooms, and not in everyday life. Ceramic heating elements are considered to be more reliable, safe and effective, but they are also more expensive.
  • Availability of additional functions. There are many options: timer, thermostat, remote control, swivel housing, display, ionization mode and others. Which of them are really needed, and which are not particularly, each determines himself.

Which fan heater manufacturer is better to prefer?

Immediately it should be noted that the vast majority of fan heaters are assembled in the vast Chinese People's Republic. However, the leading brands monitor the quality of the materials used in the production of their brand and the quality of the assembly itself more strictly and thoroughly.
With all the variety of brands worthy of manufacturers is not so much. Designer models of the Swiss company Stadler Form not only provide comfortable and safe space heating, but also delight the eye with stylish performance. The famous brand AEG is represented in the rating of fan heaters of one of the best universal models with wall mounting.
Decent quality with good functionality and reasonable price is demonstrated by the well-known heaters companies Timberk, Ballu, Rolsen and Vitek on the market. Their advantage is a wide range of fan heaters for various conditions and for any wallet.
What should be avoided is the cheap products of lesser-known brands. Often, such products are simply unsafe. Low-quality materials from which they are made, can be toxic and susceptible to fire.
