Consider Tabletop Heaters this Winter


The portability of space heaters is wonderful to take advantage of if you’re looking to stay warm in your home this winter. However, the versatility of models is related to their size and shape. Low-profile heaters are subtle models, but can be awkward to carry due to their elongated shape. Tower heaters provide plenty of coverage, however, their tall casing can be difficult to maneuver from room to room. Infrared heaters are great, yet are bulky and cumbersome to move around. If you’re someone who moves around the home a lot, bigger room heaters may not be ideal. Instead, look into tabletop heaters, which are small and light.

Take advantage of portability
Tabletop heaters are great, since they provide heat at the level where your torso will likely be. Keeping your core nice and toasty is important, and these devices are perfectly designed for the task. Whether you’re working in the home office, snuggling in bed, or curling up on the couch, these small models can provide just the right amount of warmth. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who work from home and frequently move around.

Additionally, tabletop heaters, like the Simple Touch Ceramic Heater, may be better for individuals with children or pets. By keeping the room heater off the ground, animals and kids are less likely to interact with it, decreasing the chance of injuries. If your young ones or furry friends do get too close, you can easily move the unit out of reach.

Remember to be safe
As with any portable heater, safety is essential. First recognize whether or not your unit is a tabletop model. Models that aren’t designed for use on surfaces other than the floor aren’t safe to place on tables. The weight of a non-tabletop device can break the surface it’s sitting on and the size can make the unit prone to tipping.

Despite its small size, tabletop heaters provide plenty of warm air, so be sure to unplug the unit whenever you leave a room. Additionally, be careful when moving the unit, as its surface may still be hot after being unplugged.

If your tabletop heater has any exposed wires or heating elements, stop using the unit immediately, since it can be a fire hazard.

A tabletop heater is a great and affordable way to stay warm this winter. If used properly, you can enjoy its benefits through the winter season.
