The Best Portable Heaters We’ve Reviewed

Leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in. Now is a good time to get ahead and buy a portable heater, so it’s ready to plug in when the temperature really drops.

There are several types of portable heater available: fan, ceramic, halogen, oil filled and more. If you’re not sure which sort would be best for your situation, have a look at our guide outlining the different types and their advantages and disadvantages.

If you want more control over individual radiators, check out our guide on the best smart radiator valves, and if you’re ready to take the leap and buy a whole smart home heating system, read our round-up of the best smart thermostats available.

Before you buy, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The first is safety. Never cover your portable heater or use it to dry clothes.

Second, be aware of cost. A portable heater can save you from needlessly cranking up the central heating but if you run a plug-in heater all day, it’ll consume a lot of power. A portable fan heater running for 24 hours continuously on a standard electricity tariff could cost you up to £7 per day.

How we test our heaters

Rather than performing a series of tests in lab-style conditions, we take the heaters home and try them out. We keep products for several weeks and use all of their functions in as many situations as we can think of, so we can give you an honest evaluation of how well they’ll work in your life.
