Based on their design or working principle, electric heaters are classified into few types. These heaters can be used for either for household purposes or for commercial purposes. But generally, a large scale heater with high output quantities are preferred for commercial heaters. Below are few types which are used for home heating purposes.
[wptabcontent]Wall heaters: Electric wall heaters are mounted on wall to produce heat in a room or a house. They require an electrical circuit which has a voltage of 120 volts or 240 volts. The wall heater is composed with a resistor, which is a type of a material and it turns electrical energy into heat.[/wptabcontent]
[wptabcontent]Electric Tower Heaters: Tower Heater with Remote Control – Tower heater is made up of ceramic that combines safe ceramic heating technology and a slim design that can go almost anywhere. In today’s world Tower heaters are popular portable electronic devices with awesome styling and design that fits properly in our home decors. They can be worked by setting the temperatures in different voltages. Two heat settings can be done, 950 Watts for low temperature and 1500 Watts for High temperature.
There is a 1-12 hour adjustable timer. The user can set accordingly and it automatically shuts when the adjusted time is elapsed.[/wptabcontent]
[wptabcontent]Electric Baseboard Heaters: Electric baseboard heaters are often fitted to older houses where the heating system is not used for longer time. Hence, these heaters do not ensure a cost effective heating. Electric heating consumes large amounts of power to deliver a given amount of heat. A 1,200 square foot home with good insulation, less glass area, and minimum ceiling height, will need approximately 12,000 watts of total heating power if electric baseboard heating is used.[/wptabcontent]

[wptabcontent]Electric Cove Heaters: Electric cove heaters are located just below the ceiling on wall. They use electricity to generate heat which is controlled by a thermostat. Electric cove heaters release radiant (infrared) heat. Using electric cove heaters rather than heating the air, make these radiant heaters highly energy efficient.[/wptabcontent][/wptabs]
Electric heaters are found to be beneficial when compared to traditional methods of heating. These are not only energy efficient, but also safe, healthy and environmental-friendly.
