What are Space Heaters?
The term space heater is really a blanket statement as anything that heats a specific space/room qualifies. From small radiators and gas log fires to your favourite portable heater or oil column heater, all could be included. They are a winter staple in countless households.
As far as Jim's Air Conditioning goes, our focus is typically on inbuilt gas heaters. From wall mounted systems to gas fireplaces, we focus on long term systems rather than portable units that don't often last as long.
Often installed in a single room of the house, they are a cost effective option for warming bedrooms, living spaces or bathrooms. They are also a far more affordable option than ducted heating systems, which are designed and installed to heat an entire house.
As the majority of these units run on gas as a fuel source, safe operation is paramount. For example, inbuilt units should be flued and maintained properly with routine servicing. Energy efficiency and warm air circulation both benefit with annual maintenance and care.
Types of Room Heaters
Here at Jim's Air Conditioning, we work on a range of heating units and systems, from ducted through to small room heaters. And whether your small space heater has electronic controls or a gas heating element, we can look after it. Jim's Air Conditioning is here for it all, except for portable heaters.
Gas Space Heater
In terms of gas space heaters there may be a few different units that fit under this wide umbrella. The most common ones include gas log fires, gas wall furnaces and inbuilt radiant heaters.
These units are often cheaper to run than electric heater counterparts thanks to reduced energy consumption and lower energy bill costs.
Gas space heaters are a great option for those looking to heat a room without a large upfront installation cost. Long term running costs are also quite affordable when compared to other heaters. Gas burners and radiant bars will deliver consistent, heated air that remains at a desired temperature.
Electric Space Heater
For those without a gas connection, your individual room heater is probably electric. Whether it's a lifelike electric fireplace or electric panel heater, options are available for all homes.
Inbuilt units are far better than portable ones as you can avoid tripping over an extension cord, and there's no concern when plugging anything into a wall outlet.
Instead, you have a reliable system that will heat evenly, delivering a higher temperature faster and more efficiently. And with additional safety features like cool-to-the-touch coverings, you can rest assured everything is safe and sound with a secure space heater.

Space Heaters FAQs
Space may be the final frontier with plenty of unknowns, but we know all about space heaters.
Are space heaters energy efficient?
Space heaters traditionally use less energy compared to ducted heating. They heat a far smaller space, thus require less energy. Both gas and electric heaters will vary with their output, though, so it's best to compare models to determine which is the most energy efficient.
Can space heaters cause fires?
Your home could at risk without proper maintenance. Combustion space heaters like gas log fires can pose a risk as their flammable fuel can trigger an uncontrollable fire. The combination of a gas leak and fire is not one you want to embrace. However, with a host of safety features in place the chances of a fire are very low. It is still on yourself to use and maintain the heater in a professional manner.
Are space heaters safe to leave on all night?
It is not recommended for a space heater to be left running overnight. Space heaters do have potential high risk factors, including fire, gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. To heat your room overnight, it’s best to have the unit on for about 2-3 hours before you sleep. Just turn it off before bed and your room will stay toasty warm as you fall asleep.
