An electric portable heater can be the answer when your heating fails or can be used all year round; inbuilt timers on larger wattage products offer even more control. Easily portable and storable, the versatility and multi-functionality of portable heaters is what makes them a must have.

Our portable heaters are a robust mobile heat source using oil, gel or dry stone. Most of Heater Shop’s portable heaters are a lightweight plug-in option and can be easily moved using a tow handle or wheels. We also offer fan and multipurpose heaters, featuring frost protection, suitable for localised heating such as lofts, greenhouses, sheds and garages.

Most of our portable heaters are thermostatically controlled which means they are able to react to temperature changes and have greater control over their output. Heater shop offers a variety of sizes and wattages from 400w to 3000.

Choosing the right size

Your required wattage is dependent upon the situation. For a quick burst of heat, higher wattage convector heaters are ideal. For a source of heat over a longer period of time, lower wattage radiant heaters can be a reliable, more energy-efficient option.

Where to use a portable heater

You can use a portable heater almost anywhere. They are an excellent option for warming small indoor spaces such as workshops, sheds, greenhouses, lofts, porches and bedrooms. However most plug in portable heaters are not suitable where they are likely to be exposed to water. With an adjustable heat setting, they can be useful when your fossil-fuelled heat source has stopped working. Great to have stored away in case you ever become in need, portable heaters can be found a use in nearly every scenario.

What to do if you need more power than 3kW

We would recommend buying multiple heaters for larger open-plan spaces or consider using an alternative heating source such a more permanent solution Heater Shop also stocks.

Alternatives to portable heaters

Electric radiators or panel heaters are an excellent solution for more everyday long-term uses. Electric fan heaters are possibly a smaller option and generally use less energy, they can be useful for convecting air from a high wall mounting.

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.
