The official start to winter is just around the corner, but frigid temperatures and snowy conditions have already hit many parts of Canada. That means it's time to start thinking about heating our homes for the season, and potentially switching to more energy-efficient options than central heating.
Space heaters are a great choice if you're looking to keep costs down, since they only heat up a single area at a time — using a fraction of the energy of regular radiators and heaters.
This powerful space heater delivers warmth thanks to 1,500 watts of silent heating. Unlike some other space heaters that use fans to spread heat throughout a room, this De'Longhi version uses a permanently sealed oil reservoir to radiate heat without resulting in a high surface temperature.
A user-friendly control panel offers an adjustable thermostat and three heat settings to customize your heating needs and optimize energy efficiency. The antifreeze setting automatically warms up the heater to prevent frozen pipes, while automatic shutoff prevents overheating if the unit's temperature becomes too high.
'Excellent basement space heater'
Amazon shoppers have been impressed by the De'Longhi Oil-Filled Radiator Space Heater which has so far earned a 4.5-star rating from more than 1,300 customer reviews. Thanks to its rolling design, shoppers love that you "you can easily move it anywhere" and move it from room to room.
"This heater keeps us comfortable and saves us money," shared one reviewer who used it as an alternative to their baseboard heaters. It helped to keep "temperature constant during winter," leaving the reviewer "very satisfied."
'Dead silent and very efficient'
One reviewer explained that this unit is "completely silent" while running, and quickly heats up the room with less noise than heating fans.
"I have other two heaters and this one is the best," shared another person.
Some reviewers have cautioned that this heater isn't the best choice for large spaces, as it "doesn’t give off enough heat" to heat bigger rooms. The brand recommends its use for areas up to 250 square feet, so you'll want to ensure that you're using it in an appropriate place before purchasing.
If you're looking for a simple way to heat up smaller rooms, then this De'Longhi space heater could be a great option. Despite its safety features, you'll still want to keep it away from children and pets out of an abundance of caution, but according to reviewers it does a good job of heating homes without noise, mess or complicated settings.
