Walmart Heaters

Are There Really Walmart Heaters?

There is no Walmart heater brand but instead they carry many different brands and types of indoor heaters.

Why Look for Heaters at Walmart?

When looking for heaters at Walmart the big question is can you get a better deal there or can you find them cheaper elsewhere. If you can't purchase the same models cheaper then why shop there?

I decided to test this out by comparing several of Walmart's most popular heaters and seeing if you can get a better deal somewhere else.

The Results

Below you will find the results of each model as well as a brief description of each heater's features.

One thing to note is that all of the heaters listed received very good reviews so you know you are getting a quality heater no matter which brand you chose or which store you shop at.

Pelonis Radiator Heater

The first model I looked at was the 7-Fin Electric Radiator Heater model number HO-0250H. Walmart offers this model for $38.84 and after checking other places such as Amazon, and Sears (which didn't have this model) I found that other places either have the same price or higher prices for this model.

Winner: Walmart (Lower or same price)

Pelonis 7-Fin Electric Radiator Heater

Lasko Ceramic Heater

The next model of Walmart heaters that I looked at was the Lasko Electric Ceramic 1500W Tower Heater w/Remote Control model number 751320. For this model I checked Amazon, Home Depot, Newegg and Sears. Walmart has this model listed for $49.99 which was close to the same as several other places I compared prices at. Amazon and Walmart did have the best deal for this heater with a price of $49.99.

Winner: Walmart (Walmart and Amazon have same price)

Honeywell Heater

The Honeywell Surround Heat Heater model number HZ-0360 was the next of the Walmart heaters I looked at. Walmart has this model priced at $27.99. Once again I checked stores such as Amazon, Target and Newegg and found that Amazon and Target both had the same price of $29.99 as well. One thing to note is the heater at Target is blue instead of gray so if you want something with little color to it then Target might be the best choice for you.

Winner: Walmart

Honeywell Surround Heat Heater

Honeywell 360 degree Surround Fan Forced HZ-0360

This Honeywell heater is perfect for smaller spaces such as your bathroom, bedroom or office. It features fan forced heating in 360 degree ensuring that your whole room gets heated.

Who Really Won?

As you can see, Walmart does not always have the lowest price but they are usually fairly close. If for whatever reason you like to shop at Walmart then for most of these models I have checked out you will not end up paying much more, if any, than you would anywhere else.

If you are looking for the lowest price then often times is going to match Walmart's prices. However, if you do find a lower price somewhere, remember that Walmart usually has a price match guarantee.

Things to Consider

One important thing to remember is that no matter how little you pay for your new heater it might not be worth it if it ends up costing you a lot in electricity.

Before purchasing any heater, you need to consider what type of area you are going to be heating and how much electricity the heater uses.

Using a fireplace style heater in your small office or bedroom would not be appropriate instead you would want to use a small space heater.

Additionally, using a space heater to try to heat your living room would not be advised as it would be constantly running and never fully heat that large of an area.

Matching the right heater to the right room is a must if you want to provide the heat you need while cutting your energy costs.

Heating My Home

How I Cut My Energy Costs

I have central heating and if I use it I end up spending a bundle on heating. We have an upstairs and a downstairs and the upstairs always stays warm while the downstairs is cold. I like cooler temperatures while the rest of my family likes it nice and toasty, this makes it difficult to use our central heat as I am always to hot when upstairs.

To solve this dilemma we now use the Duraflame 550 electric stove for upstairs and we have one of the Pelonis radiator heaters in each bedroom downstairs. This has given us the ability to keep each room in the house at the temperature that each person prefers and to cut our heating bill by roughly $60 a month.

Below is the fireplace style heater we now use, we chose this model over the Pelonis heater for upstairs mainly because of the look. We enjoy being able to snuggle up on the couch and watch the flames dance about on those cold winter nights.

We loved the look of this fireplace electric stove and it is a best seller on Amazon so it was an easy choice for us to purchase this model. This 1500 watt stove can easily heat a room of up to 400 square feet during the coldest winter months. One of the cool things about this heater is that you can have the flames burning without producing heat.
