Hello,
I am looking for an efficient and compact fan heater... It does not necessarily need to have a thermostat but should be able to heat a 10 m² room. Can you give some good recommendations?

OK, unusual question. But, if there is a good one, I guess I'd be innerested. I've been epoxying my garage and its kinda late in the season, so I've been using a couple 1500 W oscillating fans, with acceptable but not awesome results. Kerosene is outta the question. Ultimately a gas blower from the ceiling would be great, but kinda outta my budget. So... Fan Heaters? :)

We constructed a 100 square foot dry both back in the 80's and put a high intensity heat bulb in the ceiling fixture near one end of the room and a small fan at the base of one wall at the other end, this would push air out thus drawing the heated air down and across the hanging parts that we manufactured and painted, not only did it dry the paint it would run you out of there it would get so hot.

I recommend Knee-Deep In Heaters

I'm asleep
These heaters are deep but they're really cheap
I'm knee-deep in heaters but none the less
I am rather cool
I'm sort of actually freezing too
No, I will be okay
I'm not so sad that I cannot play
Just get me some yogurt and dal
And I will sleep along the wall

La la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la

I'm awake
These heaters I'm using are really great
I used to be cold but I'm getting warm
I will be okay
My peacoat helps me look that way
No, I am not a fool
I bet you think that I should not stay
Just get me a bow and a string
And I will play you anything

La la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Van Morrison originally appeared on Dead Girls Of London, but his vocal track was removed due to contractual obligations.

Dal is a term used in the Indian subcontinent for dried, split pulses (legumes) (that is, lentils, peas, and beans). The term is also used for various soups prepared from these pulses.

Hello.
I used a fan heater for my bathroom in recent years. Otherwise, it was just too cold for a shower. I would definitely make sure that the case is not too hot, otherwise, it may start to melt during prolonged use (this often happens with cheap products and some no-name brands).
I personally would recommend you one of the better fan heaters that have a little more power, for example, the convectors from AEG are not bad. Here you can compare some Heating Products https://productz.com/en/versus/heating-and-cooling and find what suits you.

Rather than a fan heater, I recommend a parabolic heater. 8)

Presto Heat Dish Plus is a good one. 8)

I haven't needed to use a space heater, since I converted my heating to natural gas from heating oil.

I like to let the conspiracy develop...or cure a little if you will, I don't go Alex Jones when a bunch of 5 & 6 year olds are massacred and say they were actors and the whole thing was fake...I'm old school I do my research gather facts and let this go heat up, but that's me thorough and effective... :smoke:

Hmm. I don't know what Alex Jones looks like nor have I ever heard a word he's said. That's one major difference between me and Plook. He pays attention to that bullshit. I don't. My crap detector wont let me near it.

Yet your your Crap Detector does not work properly. It's a bit slow. Perhaps you should stop paying attention to distracting, phony conspiracy theories and media whores.
