Energy Efficient Space Heaters Reviews

Updated on July 31, 2014

Energy Efficient Space Heater Buying Guide

If it is time to replace your space heater The U.S. Department of Energy recommends you follow some simple guidelines:

1. Look for the Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) label.
2. Buy a heater with a thermostat to help save energy.
3. Keep in mind the size of the room in which it will be used. Don't buy a heater that is too large for the space.
4. Be sure you place the heater out of the way of foot traffic and on a stable surface.
5. Plug electric heaters directly into the wall. If you cannot avoid using an extension cord use a heavy-duty cord.

Portable heaters are useful in situations when you cannot afford to upgrade your main system. They are also a good choice for the rooms of individuals, such as the sick or elderly, who can be sensitive to the cold.
