Fan heaters consist of a large fan that passes air over a heated element. These heaters are ideal when rapid heating of a room and its surroundings is desirable. These small heaters are very easy to use and can be installed in places where installing other heating solutions may not be possible. The heaters are often used in small enclosures such as bathrooms and kitchens. These heaters can be installed in small kiosks, for example, to give a localized heat solution that might be otherwise too expensive to employ. Fan heaters are ideally used as a portable heating solution.
Fan heaters are convection heaters. They blow warm air across the room, ensuring that it circulates evenly. This means that warm air does not settle near the ceiling, as is the case with most other heaters. This ensures an overall warm environment.
