Take advantage of remote control heaters
As winter arrives and the temperatures continue to drop, you’re probably looking for ways to stay warm in your home. Investing in a remote control space heater can be a great way to keep your rooms toasty, save money and avoid having to constantly get up to adjust the levels.
Stay where you are
Remote control heaters can be especially beneficial for individuals who work from home. Whether you’re getting too warm or starting to feel chilly, the remote control allows you to adjust the heater level accordingly without having to leave your seat. It’s also great if you fall ill and moving is not only difficult, but painful. Homeowners who move around the room frequently will appreciate being able to turn up the warmth when they’re on the other side of the space.
Enjoy the versatility
Additionally, space heaters are portable, which can help keep you warm in any room. Remember to allow the unit to cool completely before attempting to pick it up. Though a remote can be a wonderful feature, its benefits can quickly be lost if the control is misplaced. Try to have a specific location in each room where you place the small device. Many new models are equipped with remote control storage right on the unit. Keep in mind that young children may be especially interested in remote devices. As such, be sure to keep the controls out of reach, since improper use can be dangerous.
Don’t sacrifice style
Remote control models come in a variety of sizes and colors. You won’t have to worry about finding one that fits your decor. There are larger models that will make a statement in the room and slimmer, sleeker devices that will help enhance your modern style.
You’ll want to think about either highlighting the strong vertical lines of a tower heater or offsetting it by implementing some horizontal lines around the room. Mid-size models will require less style reconfiguration, whereas larger models may call for more attention to decor. Experiment with wall pieces, throw pillows and even books to see which setup best complements the look of your new space heater.
Unless the manufacturer indicates that the model can be used on a tabletop, never place a heater on any surface other than the floor. Proper use of a remote control heater will help you stay toasty this winter while boasting convenience.
