There are many different types of space heaters, but they all work by converting energy into heat and then transferring that heat to the air in a room.
- The most common space heater, which is found in homes and small offices, is an electric space heater.
These furnaces have a heating element that emits infrared radiation to heat the room, when this radiation hits objects in the room, it causes them to heat up, and another kind of electric furnace is a convection heater, which is one of the more common types of furnaces as it is usually a bit lower in price. These furnaces have heating elements that heat up the air around them. The hot air then rises and circulates around the room, causing objects and people in the room to feel warm. Some furnaces also have fans that help to circulate the air, which can require a bit more repair as the fans usually get covered in dust over time and need to be cleaned, oil-filled radiant furnaces are another type of area gas furnace which are also quite official in homes. These furnaces have a coil filled with oil that is heated by an electric element. The oil then transfers heat to the metal coils around it, which in turn transport heat to the air. Geothermal heat pumps are a style of furnace that uses the ground as a source of heating and cooling for a home. These systems are very efficient and can save homeowners money on their daily bills. Take your best pick and good luck!
