With the cost of energy going up every year, smart shoppers are looking for ways to save energy and money. One of the most popular ways to do this is with an energy efficient space heater. At Meijer.com we carry more energy saving space heater options that you can shake a gas bill at. Some even come as heating and cooling units that offer portable relief all year round.
Selecting the Right Electric Space Heater
Because each household is different, what to look for in an electric space heater can also vary. There are a few questions you'll want to ask yourself before you pick up a new electric space heater.
- How big is your space? - The size of the space you are trying to heat is directly proportionate to the size of the space heater you will need. If you are looking for something to add a few degrees to a small bedroom during sleeping hours, then a small energy saving space heater may be all you need. If you have a large space, however, it might be better to purchase two and place them at opposite ends of the room, so you are not always pushing one electric space heater to maximum capacity.
- Are there young children in the home? - You can get an electric space heater in just about any style these days, including some open coil models. If there are young children in the home, you'll want to choose a model that takes little fingers into consideration. You'll also want to place the heater out of normal "play" areas to avoid it being knocked over or bumped into inadvertently.
- How old is your current heater? - There have been many advances in conservation in the last few years. In fact, a new energy efficient space heater can offer significant saving in energy costs compared to some that are just a few years old. If your current electric space heater is 5 or more years old, it is most likely time to get a new one.
By keeping these concerns in mind, you can be on the way to lower energy bills the safe way.
