Infrared portable heaters have been around for a while, but in recent years, have become much more mainstream than they have been in the past. Thanks to varying designs in the heaters, the space they cover is expanding, which means fewer heaters and more warm air. The speed at which the appliances produce heat is even increasing, making them ideal for travel and for use in place of a central heater in quick cold moments. Using portable heaters to warm your house can be a great way of saving on an expensive gas bill while still staying warm, making them an ideal investment.
The heaters usually use anywhere from 1 to 6 quartz bulbs in the center of the appliance. The bulbs produce heat, which is then passed through an airflow system and subsequently passed into the room. Some infrared heaters now have the capacity to heat up to 1800 square feet. Most conventional ones heat around 500 square feet, though, which is still a wonderful improvement compared to the past portable heaters’ ranges.
The ranges aren’t all that have changed in recent years regarding infrared heaters. Manufacturers like Holmes and Honeywell have made the heaters much easier to find in mainstream appliance stores. They used to be hard to come across, but thanks to a higher demand and more buyer-friendly prices, the market for them has increased a great deal. Speaking of prices, the heaters used to cost anywhere from $400 to upwards of $600. Since Holmes and Honeywell started making the units, prices decreased dramatically, which has just made them even more popular. Their unit prices start at a low $130. In order to keep up with competition, niche manufacturers have decreased their product priced by at least $200-$300. In the near future, Holmes and Honeywell expects further competition from other manufacturers, as well as an even greater presence of its portable heating appliances in stores.
