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.

Dimplex FX20VE Downflow Heater

Replaced 15 year old, direct replacement, no extra holes needed in the wall. Good idea to switch off after 30 minutes, but worrying if you don’t read the handbook.

Stiebel Eltron CK 20 2000W Trend LCD Quick Response Heater 275mm

Good heater, effective, looks good, and easy to instal (but you'll need a plug if you aren't going to hardwire it in).

We took some time to experiment with electric space heaters, but found that almost all are more suited for smaller rooms without high ceilings. In our setting the heat simply goes straight up to a high ceiling instead of spreading across the room. So a low level/horizontal fan effect is essential.

Many space heaters fitted with fans direct the air up towards the ceiling which in our case is a waste of effort. This is used in a medium sized conservatory (lots of glass and high ceiling), and on its own on a cold winter day (0-5 degrees celsius) it struggles to warm the room to a comfortable level (it's asking an awful lot to warm such a volume of air from zero to 19-20 degrees), so we use an extra small (horizontal) fan heater until it reaches a reasonable temperature. We're still experimenting, but purely from an aesthetic viewpoint we'll probably get another of this model heater, to have effective heating instead of using a dinky little extra portable fan heater to assist the initial warm up.

Easy to operate but confusing to program for automatically timed operation (poorly prepared, incomplete and ambiguous instructions provided). This is the only reason for the 4 star rating, otherwise it would be 5.

Note, though, that you can google detailed and useful instructions to help with this problem, though these should come with the product in the first place!

As it turns out, we had intended to program it for specific times of the day, but it works out easier, and possibly cheaper, if we just turn the heater/s on about 15-20 minutes before we want to use the room. That's very simple to do, and to set the wanted temperature.
