Best Space Heaters For Large Rooms

Updated on November 14, 2012

Which Large Room Space Heater Is Best For Your Home

If you have a large room that is always a bit too cold then you can save a lot of money by not cranking the thermostat up any further but by adding a large room space heater instead.

For warming a large room with a space heater you need to stay away from radiant heat. Convection heating with a fan blower is best.

Below I've hand-selected some of the best whole room space heaters available today. However, if you are looking for something more permanent then I suggest seeing this page for top selling electric fireplaces instead.

Best Convection Space Heater For A Large Room - This Portable Oil-Filled Radiator by DeLonghi Will Heat A Large Room Efficiently

This heater is my top pick for the category because it is very affordable but still comes with more features than you even realized space heaters could have, It has a 24-hour timer and 96 settings. It shuts off when the temperature starts getting too hot as well as cold and it efficiently warms a really big room without ever getting too hot to touch.


More Whole Room Oil Filled Convection Heaters

For heating a whole room or a large enclosed space by far the best space heater to use is an oil filled convection radiator. Despite the name these radiator-style convection heaters warm the air around them causing the air to rise and cold air near the ceiling to fall. When you leave them to work for a while the entire room eventually fills with warm air with no cold spots or hot spots. These are extremely energy efficient and require little to no maintenance. They also cost far less than larger electric fireplaces making them attractive choices for those on a tighter budget. Each heater below should be great for large room heating.

Large Room Infared Fireplace Heaters - These Heaters Easily Heat Large Rooms And They Look Great

If the above radiator style heaters just don't look good enough for you another great alternative is to buy an electric fireplace. These are far more attractive units and they can usually double as a functioning piece of furniture such as a decorative table or shelf. They typically run on electricity and they operate efficiently enough to heat larger rooms but they do cost more. Some budget models are priced in the $100-$200 range but you can also find some very fancy models as high as $1000 without breaking a sweat. Below I've featured three lower cost Dimplex models that all have nearly flawless customer reviews.

The Best Space Heater Fans For Big Spaces

Generally speaking a heater fan is not going to fully warm a room up as well as a large convection heater but some people prefer heater fans that blow warm air more than radiators that leech warm air in the room. If you want the former then these are a couple viable options for some larger rooms - just don't expect them to perform as well as the oil-filled heaters featured above.

This is a really efficient fan heater that does well at pumping out enough heat to keep a room in a comfortable temperature range. When the room is already relatively warm this is a great option for maintaining temperature but it is less able to bring cold room temperatures up than an oil-filled radiator. It will do it but it takes a bit of patience. or the price however it's worth it.
