About products and suppliers

Fan heaters are popular for heating homes, small offices, and other small living spaces. Bathroom heater fans help keep your bathroom warm and toasty both during and after your bath or shower. Bathroom heater lamps perform a similar job and are often just as efficient. Larger, more powerful fan heaters are used in commercial buildings, warehouses, factories, and shipping containers to regulate the temperature and preserve perishable contents.

Most Common Types of Fan Heaters

The most common use for fan heaters is to warm up small spaces. A wood stove fan is slightly different than a bathroom ceiling heater and similar fans with electric-powered motors. Instead, a wood stove fan is self-powered. When placed in front of a wood-burning stove, the heat turns the fan’s internal motor and blade, helping disperse heat throughout the entire room. Because these fan heaters are small in size, they work best in smaller spaces.

There are also countless brands and types of fan heaters to choose from. A Dyson hot and cool fan lets you choose between circulating hot or cold air in a given space. If you strictly want a heater, consider a Dyson heater, a Dyson fan heater, or a similar product. Lasko box fans work well in larger rooms and are usually placed directly on the floor. A Lasko tower fan is raised on a pedestal, circulating the air up and outward throughout the room.

How Do Fan Heaters Work?

Traditional fan heaters work using a basic motor that draws on electricity and a heating element. A current of electricity runs through the fan’s heating element, changing the electricity into heat energy. The fan works by sucking in air and pushing it toward the heating element. Here, it gets warmed up quickly and dispersed into the surrounding atmosphere.

Are Fan Heaters Energy Efficient?

Most fan heaters and wood stove fans have a fairly basic design that makes them both efficient and affordable. The internal heating unit inside these small fans heats up quickly and, therefore, requires little electricity to run. Both the upfront cost of a fan heater and the long-term cost are minimal. Keep in mind, though, that the larger the fan, the more expensive it will be and the more electricity it needs to run.
