Which heating appliance is right for you?

If you haven’t started to feel the chill already, you soon will as winter is on the way. Let’s face it, no one enjoys dark nights or chilly mornings, especially when you have to leave a warm bed behind. But having the right heating appliance can make all the difference. De’Longhi shares several factors to consider to help you choose a heater that’ll keep you toasty without a big power bill.

Choose the right heater for your space

Ceramic and fan heaters are a good choice for personal heat in a small area like an office or lounge room without taking up too much space. De'Longhi fan heaters also have drip protection for safe bathroom use and can easily be packed away when the warmer months come around.

Alternatively, if you’re heating an area such as a living room or bedroom, choose a larger heater such as an oil column heater (pictured above). These come in a range of sizes and features with castors for easy movement from room to room.

If you enjoy a bit of D.I.Y. and fancy a permanent heating fixture that blends effortlessly into your home, De'Longhi panel heaters are wall mountable, so they’re a great space saver.

 

 

Heating appliances shouldn’t mean big power bills

Heating appliances that include an adjustable room thermostat are perfect in a time of ever rising energy costs. By opting for a heater with a thermostat you can select the desired comfort level and the appliance will maintain it to optimise energy efficiency.

If you’re a light sleeper, make sure you’re opting for a heater with a silence level such as the De'Longhi ceramic heaters to ensure a good night’s sleep–you’ll thank yourself in the morning!

Peace of mind when you have children

If you have children, safety will be a top consideration when choosing your heating appliance. Make sure you’re opting for features such as a safety tilt switch that automatically turns the heater off when tipped, cool touch surfaces so burns are avoided and an overheating safety thermal cutoff, which will give you extra peace of mind.

Make sure you select the heating appliance that has the best features to suit your lifestyle

For example, the 24-hour timer setting allows you to program the appliance’s daily working time. It’s a great way to make sure your space is already warm when you wake up early in the morning or when coming home after finishing late.
