In such cases, it is very appropriate additional heating elements - local heaters. Among them, oil heaters, which are noted among others by simplicity and safety, deserve special attention.
This type of radiator is presented in various models from different companies and manufacturers. The question arises: which oil heater is better to choose? We have compiled a ranking of the best models based on their characteristics, expert opinion and customer reviews.
Criteria for choosing the right
It is quite difficult to make the right choice in favor of the heater without having studied the range. Consultants in stores can offer you a good option tentatively for your request.
But, first you need to decide for yourself what parameters you need a heater. When choosing a technique, follow the following criteria:
- Power. The heating temperature of the device depends on it. Depending on this indicator, it is possible to heat a smaller or larger area. In this case, two heaters of the same power, but of different dimensions will heat up differently. The smaller one can heat up to a high temperature. A larger area heater will be less hot, however, favorable for the atmosphere of air.
- Safety is a high-quality acquisition and assembly. Therefore, it is recommended when choosing a product to focus not only on the company( brand), but also on the manufacturer. Practice shows that Chinese goods are of lower quality among others. Therefore, consumers prefer, at least, joint production with Chinese.
- Dimensions. This is a purely individual choice, which mainly depends on the area of the room. Fortunately, according to this criterion, a wide range is available that will satisfy everyone’s needs. However, it should be remembered that the oil heater of small size with a large power of power has the ability to split the surface to a high temperature. In this case, the air in the room will be drier. And in a house where there are children, you should be careful that the child does not burn.
- Equipment with additional functions. Basically it is not considered the main selection criterion. However, it is nice when a radiator suitable for the main indications is additionally equipped with functions: a fan or an evaporator.
