An electric heater is a device that converts electricity into heat energy to warm up a room or an area.

An electric heater works by using an electrical current to heat up a heating element, which in turn radiates heat into the surrounding area. Some electric heaters also use a fan to blow hot air into the room.

Electric heaters can be energy-efficient, depending on their type and how they are used. Some models are designed to be more efficient than others, and using a thermostat to control the temperature can help save energy.

Electric heaters can be safe when used properly. It is important to keep them away from flammable materials and to never leave them unattended while in use. It is also important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use and maintenance.

There are several types of electric heaters, including convection heaters, radiant heaters, fan-forced heaters, and oil-filled heaters.

A convection heater is a type of electric heater that uses convection to circulate warm air throughout a room.

A radiant heater is a type of electric heater that radiates heat in all directions, providing direct heat to objects and people in its path.

A fan-forced heater is a type of electric heater that uses a fan to blow hot air into the room.

An oil-filled heater is a type of electric heater that uses oil to heat up and radiate heat into the surrounding area.

Perfect Aire electric heaters are not waterproof and cannot be used in a bathroom.

Perfect Aire electric heaters cannot be used outdoors.

When choosing an electric heater, consider factors such as the size of the room or area to be heated, the type of heater that will be most effective for the space, and any safety features that may be necessary. It is also important to choose a model that is energy-efficient and within your budget.

Perfect Aire does NOT recommend using an extension cord with a space heater, as it will pose a safety hazard. Space heaters typically draw a lot of power and using an extension cord that is not rated for the appropriate power load can result in overheating and potentially cause a fire.

Using an extension cord will void the warranty.
