Heating your house can not only be expensive but with central heating, it can also take time. Therefore, this is where halogen heaters become very beneficial because they provide instant heat and they are ideal for small spaces.
Compared to other types of heaters (such as an oil-filled radiator), halogen heaters are available in a range of shapes and sizes and many can also be used outdoors.
Over the years, we’ve tried and tested a selection of halogen heaters from top brands in the UK. During our ongoing testing, we analyse the heater’s performance, usability, build quality, safety features as well as any additional features that it has to offer.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest halogen heaters (for this article), we are continually testing out the latest offerings from top brands. This means that when we see a brand has released a new and improved model, we put it to the test with the criteria mentioned above before deciding if it should be included in our roundup.
As well as our testing and experience using multiple halogen heaters, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and a number of factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the heater’s performance, ease of operation, design, build quality, safety features, additional functionality and value for the money.
Top Tip: When purchasing a halogen heater, we highly advise that you check that the bulbs can be replaced. This is because halogen bulbs eventually break after prolonged use but luckily, they are fairly cheap to buy and easy to replace. However, if you can’t replace the bulb, you’ll have to purchase a new halogen heater altogether.
