The best heaters 2022 for home and apartment



  •  Winter 2022-2023 Russians are in for a “climate nightmare,” forecasters warn. According to their forecasts, severe cold will come in December, and a record amount of snow will fall in January. Although such long-term forecasts are not highly accurate, it is better to play it safe and choose the right model in advance among the best heaters for an apartment and a summer house.

  •  I studied offers in online stores and reviews of the most popular models, and made a rating of heaters in 2023 in terms of price and quality.

Which heater is better to buy for heating a room, cottage, apartment?

Fan heater

Fan heaterAs you might guess from the name, a fan heater combines two devices at once – a fan and a heating element. One without the other, alas, does not happen, so get ready for a constant source of noise.

  • The air inside the case is heated and expelled to the outside.
  • The flow of hot air in a cold room is immediately felt – a fan heater is indispensable if you enter an unheated room in the morning where you still have to work.
  • But the “throw” distance of fan heaters is small, so a small device will make noise right next to you. And smell of dust – a characteristic smell is emitted by particles burning on the heating element, which are brought by circulating air.
  • If this is a disadvantage for you, I recommend paying attention to fan heaters with a ceramic element – where the air is heated from ceramics, and not directly from the spiral.
Pros and cons fast heating mobile short range noisy smell of dust burning on the heating element

Heat gun

Heat gunThis is a kind of fan heater on steroids, designed to heat not one small office room or gatehouse, but an entire hall or workshop. The principle of operation is the same – the air is heated and supplied outside with a powerful warm jet.

  •  But the gun does not do this for free – electricity bills can come in such that the cold immediately seems quite tolerable. I will also add that there are household and industrial guns, and the latter can be designed for intensive consumption – not every home network can withstand this.

Pros and cons fast and powerful heating noise high electricity consumption smell of burnt dust many models are large and massive

Thermal curtain

Thermal curtainAnother type of fan heater, only the body of the air curtain is long and flat. Such heaters are usually hung over a door or window, and the flow of warm air cuts off drafts and cold air coming from the street. Especially effective in offices where a lot of people are constantly walking back and forth and out.

Pros and cons struggles with local drafts, not suitable as the main source of heat, you will have to choose based on the size of the window or door

Oil radiator

Oil radiatorThe classic type of radiator, familiar to every Russian. Its battery-shaped profile can be found anywhere – from apartments and offices to cottages. It works according to this scheme:

  • oil (mineral) is poured into the metal case, in which the heating element is located.
  • It heats the oil, the oil – the body, and already the body – the surrounding space.

  •  The device is simple and unpretentious, to break it – you need to work hard, it works wherever there is access to the network. It shows itself best in rooms where constant heating is needed for a long time – for example, in a nursery in a country house.

  •  By the way, pay attention – the smaller the oil cooler, the stronger the surface heating and the more likely it is to get burned. Therefore, it is better to put a large model in a room with children.

Pros and cons silent keeps heat for a long time


ConvectorThe principle of operation is similar to the fan heater, but only in part. There is no direct air supply to the heating element. Air enters naturally: warm air rises up to the ceiling, and it is replaced by cold air, from below from the floor. He, in turn, heats up, and history repeats itself.

  •  Such heaters are no longer as compact as fan heaters, but more like two wide and flat sheets of metal with air ducts. In size, they are closer to the battery. And the lower the convector is located, the better it works.

Pros and cons can be hung on the wall or set on the floor completely silent runs odorless slow heating

Infrared heater

IRSuch heaters are organized according to the following principle: in fact, it is not the heater itself that is heated, but the surrounding objects. Do not be afraid that you will have to maneuver among hot household items – the floor and walls are heated first of all.

  •  Best of all, such heaters work where it makes no sense to warm up the entire mass of air – and even outside the room, for example, on the veranda of a country house, in a greenhouse or even in a bathroom. The heating element is a sealed quartz lamp, which is not afraid of moisture.

  •  Among the best home heaters, IR is considered one of the most energy efficient. There are many types of them – floor, wall, ceiling, as well as gas, film and convective type.

Pros and cons can be used outdoors completely silently economical some models can be used as a light source without drafts a wide range of installation methods environmentally friendly slow and uneven heating is not effective in a room with a lot of obstacles

How to choose a heater for your home

Appliance power (with the exception of infrared models), experts recommend calculating as follows:

  • For every square meter – 100 watts of power.
  • For infrared heaters, add a margin of 15-20% power. If such a device is an auxiliary heat source, then reduce the figure to 50-80 W per 1 sq.m.
  • For each device, the manufacturer indicates the maximum area of the heated room.

Fully mechanical control in terms of reliability, it is better, it breaks less often than electronic. However, it is more difficult to precisely adjust the temperature using mechanical control. In modern mid-price models, control is usually electronic, with the display of the current temperature, scheduled shutdown, etc.

Desired set of useful features: delayed start, timer, overheat shutdown, rollover shutdown (for floor models), remote control capability. It is good if the heater comes with a remote control.
