Heater Shop offers a range of electric fan heaters, such as small fan heaters and bathroom fan heaters. They are suitable for boosting current heat sources or warming smaller rooms.
Fan heaters work by forcing air across an element to heat the ambient air in each 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. Ranging from 2kw to 6kw, our portable fan heaters vary in size and shape, are all Lot 20, they differ from classic to more modern design, and can be wall-mounted fan heaters or freestanding. Many models offer thermostatic control and power options vary as some use a pull cord and outhers use motion sensors.
Many of these models are suitable for use in a bathroom such as the downflow bathroom heater models. Quite often used in public bathrooms, offices and business areas, they are an environmentally friendly way of drying hands. It uses no paper and is only on for the length of time that it is required. This means there is no energy wastage. It is also a more hygienic way of drying hands as users do not have to touch anything meaning that germs do not get a chance to spread. Models that are safe for use in these types of areas have a high rating. Check out our IP Ratings guide for more information.

Best for Price
We have a few products to choose from but the product we feel offers the best value for money is the Prem-I-Air EH1900 Swivel Fan Heater. At less than £18* including VAT, you get a bit of bang for your buck. 2kW of power with two different heat settings ensures you’ll be able to heat a small space quickly. An adjustable thermostat and swing function adds that extra element of control. Being small, it is also very easily transported.
Best for Style
Uncontended in this category is the Steibel Eltron CK20 Trend. They will suit any location you choose to put them in. They are also by far one of the quietest fan heaters on the market. They offer a range of features such as timers, frost protection and open window detection.
Best for Functionality
This is not an easy one as electric fan heaters are simple in their nature, However, the one that has the most features and functionality would be the Steibel Eltron CK20 Premium. This is packed full of features such as 7-day timer, frost protection, open window detection, and self-learning capabilities. Being almost silent, this is a product that anyone would be happy with. This is further backed up by its constant five-star reviews.
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. Make use of any programmers or timers as they will ensure the heater is not on when it is not needed. Some of our self-learning models do the hard work for you and work out exactly when heating is and isn’t required.
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. No longer will you have to make sure the heating is switched off before you can make or take a phone call.
Current models are very robust and sustainable. Our selection of high-end products is 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 or for boosting another heater.
We also have a wide selection of electric panel heaters avaialble. They are great at providing temporary and permanent heat solutions.
