Take advantage of ceramic pedestal heaters
The temperature is steadily dropping, and if you’re looking to save some money by investing in a room heater, look into pedestal models for their many benefits.
Embrace the benefits
One great feature of pedestal heaters is their long shape. If you’re sitting in the home office, it can easily provide plenty of warmth from your legs to your torso. Curling up on the couch will ensure that the device’s heat covers your entire body. Additionally, its design allows the unit to take up very little space, which can be especially beneficial if you’ve got a small apartment. It’s important to note that despite their unobtrusive presence, pedestal heaters should be placed away from any flammable materials.
Pedestal style electric heaters are available in a variety of colors and sizes. Additionally, some have more rigid lines, while others are more rounded. Before you purchase a model, first assess the room where you plan to place the unit. A space with organic shapes could benefit from a rounded device, whereas a more modern, straight-edged style could be complemented with a boxier device. Or, you could balance the room by choosing a model that directly contrasts the general style.
Additionally, you’ll have to consider the effect of such a large vertical fixture in your room. You may want to offset the strong presence with a few horizontal lines artfully strewn about the room. Lay a few books on their sides or find some rectangular throw pillows to place on a nearby couch. You can even bring in a lower, wider chair. Investing in a room heater doesn’t have to compromise your home’s style.
Enjoy the portability
Electric space heaters are wonderful because they can be easily brought from one area into another. In this case, you’ll want to consider the aesthetics of every space. Additionally, remember to exercise caution when moving these devices. Wait until the unit has completely cooled down before attempting to transport it so you can avoid accidental burns. Also, realize that the units can be a bit awkward to maneuver, so be careful getting around tight spaces.
As always, never leave a heater unattended for any amount of time. Keep an eye on children and pets. Avoid using extension cords altogether; always plug a heater directly into a wall outlet. Proper usage of a pedestal heater can help you keep toasty and safe this winter.
