Electric Fan Heaters

Heater Shop offers a range of electric fan heaters, such as tower heaters, industrial fan heaters and downflow heaters, suitable for boosting current heat sources or warming smaller rooms.

Ranging from 2kw to 6kw, our fan heaters vary in size and shape, they differ from classic to more modern design, and can be wall-mounted or freestanding.

Fan heaters work by forcing air across an element to heat the ambient air in a given space. The more air that passes across the heating element, the quicker the temperature will rise in that area.

As the heat rises the heated air naturally flows upwards. These heaters can therefore be mounted very low to the ground, maximising the effect of warm air. The effect can be offset by positioning them at a higher mounting level so that the air is blowing down into the room towards ground level.

The versatility and portability of an electric fan heater is its advantage, a lightweight option in both summer and winter to heat or cool the space as appropriate. They can be an excellent option if your current heating output needs a boost or if you are looking for a short-term solution and are trying to manually save energy. Depending on the size of the room, they could save money and energy in comparison with other heating options.

Savings and energy efficiency

Offering complete manual control, you can use them as much or a little as you need. Simple and quick to use, these types of heaters are initially cheaper than other heating options and in the right scenarios will save you a lot of money.

Fan heater noise levels

Newer models have improved considerably compared to older models in their efficiency and lifespan, they also have become quieter than ever before, to the point that they can be almost unnoticeable.

Product reliability

Current models are very robust and sustainable. Our selection of high-end products are sourced by established brands and include warranties up to three years.

Choosing the right size for you

This depends upon your intended use for the product. We currently offer from 2kw to 6kw in power. Recommended is a higher wattage heater for an instant short-term heat source, and a lower wattage for a steady heat source to output over a longer period of time or for boosting another heater.

Ordering was a breeze on the well laid-out website and the item arrived exactly when advised. Item was very well packed with plenty of bubble-wrap protection - often lacking with some companies. I particularly appreciated being kept informed with the order and delivery. Highly recommended and will definitely use this company again.

Dimplex DXFF30TSN Portable Fan Heater 3kW

Works well and one of few 3kw fan heaters of this style. Only 4 stars as this is a replacement for identical item that only lasted 2 years. However 3 year guarantee meant a free replacement.

Dimplex FX20VE Downflow Heater

Easy to fit. Seems a bit plasticky but when its on a wall your not gonna touch it so no issue. As its a Dimplex it should last for years. 1Kw or 2Kw setting depending on the size of the room and a built 30 min timer so switches off so saving energy and for those who forget to switch off so safe
