Ceramic heaters are considered more efficient than electric conventional heaters, as they heat faster, are more stable when achieving the desired temperature, safer and if used in the lower power settings consume less energy

The electric space heater. It's the only common machine that's 100% efficient.

it is not very efficientAnswerThey are 100 percent efficient.

There are a number of stores that sell ceramic space heaters. These stores include Amazon, Ace Hardware, Best Buy, the auction website eBay and Delonghi.One can purchase a ceramic space heater from ULINE, Walmart, and Target. One can also purchase a ceramic space heater from Amazon, Lowe's, and OfficeMax.

We do not have a need for a space heater so I have not used one in the past. I would not use kerosene but I would use electric if necessary. Dyson has one that is pretty cool looking.

Efficient, yes. But a poor choice for a heater. It's just a marketing gimmick. Every electric heater is nearly 100 percent efficient. Efficiency is a term not understood by many. Energy efficiency - useful work per quantity of energy. In other words, What is the job of an electric heater? To make heat. How much of the electricity fed to the heater is turned into heat? All of it. That makes it 100 percent efficient. In contrast an incandescent light bulb is only about 5 percent efficient, only 5% of the electricity fed to it is converted to light the other 95% is converted to heat.

Valco Infrared heater can be used as a space heater. The can save you lots of money on energy costs.

An oil filled electric space heater produces a more "even" heating without the hotspots that standard electric space heaters can produce. Also it is not possible for something poked into the oil filled electric space heater to touch the electrical heating element wires as is possible in standard electric space heaters (which would shock you).

Electric heat is always 99% efficient. The only exception to this relates to 110 volt vs 220 volt, but this is based on myth.

You can make a heating element, like in a toaster, an electric range, or a space heater.

it transforms electrical energy into thermal energy

all objects emit electromagnetic radiation through empty space, as well as matter. So feel the heat from the electric heater due to radiation.

Ceramic heaters are some of the newest heaters to hit the market; and they are not hot to the touch. They are a type of convection heater that uses ceramic plates and aluminun baffles. When the ceramic heats up, the aluminun absorbes the heat and a small fan blows the heat into the room. The plastic casing on the outside keeps the heater cool to the touch.

Electric base board heater and gas furnace.

A good quality space heater will cost a moderate amount of money, but it is a good investment for a safer product with a greater longevity. We have used the Lasko osilicating ceramic space heater in the past and were quite happy with it's effectiveness. The rotating feature provides heat to a wider area and the temperature gauge allows to raise or lower the heat setting.

Home heater systems can be both gas and electric. The most common options are a fake fireplace, a portable space heater or just a plain old heater routed throughout the house.

There isn't that much of a difference really. Strictly speaking the ceramic heater is also a resistance coil heater, the difference being that the coil is embedded in the ceramic, giving a bigger heat-emitting surface. In heating costs they'll be the same. But having a bigger emitting surface operating at a lower temperature may give a "softer" heat. A bit like filling a bucket of water from a shower head or a hose. It'll take just as much water, and take the same amount of time, but the wider spray from the shower head will hit softer than the jet from the hose.

Not a portable electric heater, but if the heater burns fuel, like gas or oil, very probably it will produce carbon monoxide and would be dangerous in a confined space without adequate ventilation.

Infrared Heaters are generally more cost efficient then regular space heaters. The reason is that they heat the object directly rather then heating the air, so it wastes less engergy. Ive seen estimates that say its as much as 80% more energy efficient.

Unassisted convection room heaters are ideal for people with Asthma. Any heater that is classified as an unassisted convection heater would be suitable. Try the Envi High-Efficiency Whole Room Plug-In Electric Panel Heater.

The modern colours are Brown = positive : Blue = negative : Yellow and green = earth.

No, ceramics are the least flammable stuff that there is. Ceramic are used as the heat shield on the space shuttle.

There really isn't much evidence that pets are endangered by space heaters.They have good enough instincts to protect themselves from them.However you can get a ceramic heater than mounts on a wall if you're concerned.

The lower end models begin at a couple hundred dollars and can easily climb up to $1000s. They are very efficient and save the trouble of maintaining a real water heater- cost and space.
