 ==== ====Do you spend countless hours writing and submitting articles, setting up profiles and creating Web2 links just to gain a few measly backlinks for your site?http://tinyurl.com/get-your-backlink-checker ==== ====Many space heaters are advertised as "whole room heaters" - but exactly how big is a wholeroom? One possible answer can be found in the Vornado heater manual which describes a wholeroom, relative to the heater's capacity, as 16' x 16' with an 8' ceiling. These dimensions work out to256 sq. ft. and 2048 cu. ft. respectively - easily the size of most family rooms, kitchens, orliving/dining spaces. Over the last year a major shift in space heater technology has re-shaped consumers' taste inwhole room space heaters. Among the winners are those that employ ceramic or quartz infraredheating elements. Among whole room heater manufacturers, Lasko holds the number two spot for bestsellingheaters with its model 755320 tower heater with digital display ($45). (Number one is Lasko's754200 compact heater $20). Ceramic heaters have gained wide spread popularity for a number of good reasons. One isreliability. Speaking from personal experience, our Lasko 5141, no longer available, refuses togive up the ghost after 6 or 7 birthdays - or approximately 52.4 space heater years. A few more reasons behind the popularity of ceramics for heating are quick heat-up and safeoperation. Ceramic heaters are also relatively quiet and produce an even heat which is oftendescribed as "soft." Radiator Space HeatersA radiator will always be a radiator so there isn't much you can do with it. Despite the lack of anygame changing technology, the radiator type heater remains one of the safest. Among radiatorheater makers, Delonghi dominates the market with its model D0715T Safe Heat Oil-FilledRadiator ($55). Micathermic HeatersMicathermic heaters are basically radiator heaters enclosed by mica panels for enhanced heatdistribution. Since they depend on convection for heat distribution they are fan-less and noise-free.Designed for versatility, they can be mounted on casters or hung on a wall, and are said to be agood bathroom heater - which I don't recommend for any portable electric heater. Once all the rage, micathermic heaters have all but fallen by the wayside. Maybe it had somethingto do with a customer complaining about sparks shooting from his DeLonghi HHP1500 Mica PanelRadiator. So it's interesting to note that the Kenwood HHP 1500, also made by Delonghi andstrongly resembling the original, is one of Consumer Reports' highest rated heaters.
 
 However, all is not lost. The Bionaire BH3950-U micathermic heater ($85) rates 4 out of 5 starsfrom its users for silent operation, portability, and whole room, non-drying heat. Convection Heaters With FansFan-forced convection heat is the M.O. of most whole room space heaters. The top rated heatermakers in this category are Lasko and Delonghi, mentioned previously, along with Holmes,Honeywell, and Vornado. New from Vornado this heating season is the PVH, or Panel Vortex Heater ($60). This heater is adeparture both in price and design from Vornado's most popular heater, the round cornered EH1-0034-06 AVH2 Vortex Full-Room Electric Heater ($97). The new, easy to operate flat panel designhouses the same technology used in their more expensive models. The secret to harnessing Vornado's vortex of heat is to locate the heater at one end of the roomwith a clear path to the opposite wall. When the air hits the opposing wall it splits and is deflectedback around the perimeter of the room to heat every square inch of space. From Holmes, sold under the Patton brand name, is the new PQH307-UM Tower Quartz Heaterwith Adjustable Thermostat ($45). This fan equipped unit is on the smaller end (150 sq. ft.) ofwhole room heaters and offers two heat settings corresponding to the number of quartz tubesturned on. This year Honeywell has the distinction of a recommendation from Consumer Reports for itsmodel HZ-817 Electric Convection Heater ($70). The 30" long, baseboard type heater has no fanand relies solely on convection for heat distribution. Unfortunately, this heater is a victim of its own success and is either unavailable, back ordered, orsold at highly inflated prices resulting from scarce supply. Kaz USA Inc., the manufacturer ofHoneywell, is aware of the problem and suggests the HZ-617 Whole Room 2-in-1 Heater ($70) asan alternative. The main difference is the addition of a fan to the HZ-617 which can be turned onor off at your pleasure. Without a doubt, the biggest shift in consumer preferences for electric space heaters has been tofurniture style quartz infrared heaters. The introduction of EdenPure a few years ago was followedby an onslaught of competing makes and models. Infrared Quartz HeatersThe newest of these is the Dr Heater infrared heater. Dr Heater features a dual quartz/ceramicheating system, gets food reviews, and costs $150 - $200 less than its competitors. Finding the best whole room space heater is easy once you know the size of the space you wantto heat, how fast you want it heated (heaters w/fans are 3x faster), and your budget. Find all of the whole room heaters described here plus my personal favorite Dr Heater at SpaceHeater Reviews: Best Electric Space Heaters.
