I'm looking for a space heater for my cubicle.?

This Site Might Help You. RE: I'm looking for a space heater for my cubicle.? I work in an office cubicle setting and it gets pretty cold in there. I'd like a smaller personal heater that doesn't make a lot of noise. It seems the ones I find are either too large, too noisy, or too unreliable. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Help with my space heater and electricity usage?

It depends on the heater. Many will be 500, 1000, 1500 watts on the different settings. But I saw one where the low, med, high only changed the fan speed, it had really only one heat setting. I can not answer your question without looking at the heater. If it has only one element it is likely all 1,500 watts on all the settings. NO, you cannot close off your vents to heat only one room. You will overheat the furnace and can damage it, crack the heat exchanger. They are designed to have full air flow. I tell customers they can close off one room only. And that depends on the furnace. If the furnace is oversized even shutting off one room causes problems. You should never run a tank dry. Plus sitting empty means there is a lot of air space in the oil tank and that means more condensation putting water in the tank. It is not a good thing. Natural gas is much cheaper if it is available. Good Luck

Running two space heaters on low vs one on high?

On low is good, but those heater are on the same circuit in your home. Try to run an heavy duty extension cord from another room, this would seperate the heaters being on the same circuit and wouldnt trip breakers anymore

How bad are space-heaters in terms of energy consumption?

I do not have a technical answer for you, but my impression is that space heaters are not seen as a bad thing in terms of energy consumption. In fact I would say they have one big advantage over a whole-house forced air system: they heat the occupant of the house rather than heating the whole house. Turn down your propane heater and keep the space heater, I say.

How many watts, amps and volts does it take to run a space heater?

That depends on what sort of heater it is. It should have a label on it that tells you how much power it consumes. Since you are going to buy it in your own country and you are not engaging in fancy electronics then all you need to know about is the amount of watts that it uses.

How to use a space heater without burning down your house

No, not a shot of a "Star Wars" casting call - these are the Honeywell My Energy Smart (left) and 360 Surround (right) room heaters, flanking the Dyson AM05 Hot Cool Fan Heater. Read more Heating season has officially arrived, so you've likely already once again become accustomed to the hum of your furnace. And if your home has heating issues, you may have also broken out a space heater to stave off dropping temperatures. But while space heaters are often used to provide an extra boost to your heat, they do come with risks. According to the National Fire Protection Association, space heaters account for about 43% of U.S. home heating fires, and 85% of deaths related to home heating fires. "Space heaters do present a potential fire hazard, but they can be used safely," says NFPA communications manager Susan McKelvey. "Many fires that occur are because of human error, so if you can realize where those behaviors can contribute to a home fire, you can take steps to minimize those risks." So how can you use space heaters without burning your house down? Here is what you need to know: Space heaters are a convenient way to warm up your home, and in some cases - like if your furnace conks out - they may be necessary. But overall, they should be seen as a "last resort, not a first resort," to solving a heating problem, says Steve Luxton, executive director and CEO of the Energy Coordinating Agency, local energy conservation nonprofit. That's especially true in Philadelphia, which has older housing stock with many using built before 1950. Older homes, Luxton says, often have older wiring that is not designed to handle the loads that a constantly running space heater demands - particularly in conjunction with other electrical appliances. Generally, he adds, space heaters pull about 1,500 watts of power per hour, which can be problematic for old wiring. "You are pulling a lot of energy through an old line, and it's probably not the only appliance on that line because these homes were underserved with electrical outlets," he says. "Electricity develops resistance, and that translates to heat," which can cause an electrical fire. But even if your home has newer, updated wiring, there's another factor to consider: Cost. Electricity, Luxton says, is much more expensive to use as a heating fuel than something like gas, which can translate into higher bills during heating season if you are constantly using a space heater. Instead, you might just consider turning your heat up a couple of degrees - or, if there's an issue with your system, you could try having it fixed instead, such as by bleeding radiators or removing a blockage in your heating ducts. "It will be cheaper to get a heating contractor out there to figure out why this space is not heating up correctly, instead of using a Band-Aid, which is what the space heater is," he says. » READ MORE: Outdoor heaters are the hot accessory as it gets colder. Here's how to buy one. Start with the manual, which will have safety information for that specific model, says Philadelphia Fire Department firefighter Namor Brown. Here's the best advice, according to Brown, Luxton, and Electrical Safety Foundation International: If you need to use a space heater, there's no shortage of them on the market - and they come in a variety of types, including oil or water-filled radiators, fan-forced heaters, ceramic heaters, and infrared heaters. No matter when you end up getting, though, there are a few elements to consider before you buy. » READ MORE: How to do everything better right now: A collection of our most useful stories
