If you already know what you’re looking for, you can browse our range above and pick up a great deal. If you’re not sure about which option is right for you, keep reading – we’ll break down the best both convector and fan heaters have to offer below.
What is Convective Heat?
Both convector heaters and fan heaters work the same way – they both use convective heat. Convective heat warms up air and circulates it around a room. This is why it can take a little while for a heater to warm up a whole room. Warm air naturally circulates around a room, but heaters that use convection speed up this process using an electric fan.
Both convection and fan heaters work this way – they use a powerful heating element (usually a wire) to generate warmth and a fan to blow that warmth out into a room. However, there are a few key differences in their design.
Durable Fan Heaters
Fan heaters are very simple, which comes with a few big benefits. For one, they’re really durable. They’re often designed with a focus on function over form, so they tend to be sturdy and reliable. This means they’re ideal for very busy or hectic areas like warehouses and building sites.
Small and Portable
Convector heaters tend to be slimline and portable, and fan heaters are even smaller. They’re easy to store away when not in use, and can be tucked away out of sight.
Convector heaters look a lot like panel heaters, but they’ll have an open grille at the top of the unit for the warm air to blow out. They’re perfect for homes and living rooms as they’ll look presentable in almost any décor, while still being portable enough to pick up and move around where they’re needed. Fan heaters, on the other hand, appear to be much more basic. They’re designed to cope with almost any environment – not only in the home, but in the workplace and even outdoor areas. They can easily be moved around or packed up and put in a car boot, so they’re the most versatile heaters you’ll find anywhere.
Simple to Use
Both types of heater are really user-friendly, and usually feature just a couple of buttons or dials. This is enough to allow you to tweak your heater’s settings enough to be comfortable, while still being accessible. If you’re not confident with technology, this means you can easily make the most of your heater. If you flip your heater on, you can program it to your liking in a matter of seconds.
Affordable and Incredible Value for Money
As they’re so simple, fan heaters and convector heaters offer the best price-to-performance you’ll find anywhere. If all you want is pure heating power, then these heaters give you the most for your money.
