Updated on January 25, 2012

If you are like the majority of families, you are trying to find a way to cut down on your energy bill. Of course the best way to do this is by reducing your energy consumption. A lot of people are looking at infrared heaters as a good way to do this. Once you start a search for these infrared heaters you will find out very quickly that there are all sorts of different types and price ranges. It can be a little intimidating if you're not for sure what to look for in a infrared heater.

First, you must determine how big of a space you need heated. Infrared heaters are made to have the capacity to heat small or large areas. You want to make sure to get the right heater for the space you need to heat. There are even personal infrared heaters that can be used in small spaces like a bathroom, bedroom, or small living room.

Do Infrared Heaters Really Save Money

Infrared heaters claim to save money by reducing energy consumption. Make sure that you realize most of these heaters are 1500 watt heaters, the same as most standard heaters you purchase in the store. The difference is how quickly your room heats up (reducing the need to have it on for a long period of time) and the quality of heat.

The main difference between infrared and standard heaters are how quickly the room heats and how warm the heat itself is. Many compare it to wood heat quality.

Finally, infrared heaters are safe around children, pets, and won't heat the area the heater is sitting on.
