Types of Office Heater
Oil Heaters - Are designed for prolonged use and heat the room gradually. They are essentially an oil filled moveable radiator and most good oil heaters will have thermostatic control so you can regulate the temperature.
Fan Heaters - Heat the room very quickly but they can be noisy and the heat produced is a dry heat that can make people feel tired and little lethargic which is not great for office workers. Ideal for a small rooms and are best used in short spells.
Convector Heaters - Work in the same way as radiators in that they heat the air in their immediate vicinity which then rises, this is replaced by colder air and the process continues. Convection heaters are cheap to run and effective heaters for all sizes of room.
Halogen Heaters - Provides heat almost immediately as the halogen elements warms up very quickly. They are also cheap to run with a rough approximation of hourly costs being 11p. Halogen heaters are also relatively cheap to purchase and are good for infrequent use.
