What is a Space Heater?
Space heaters are a winter staple in a lot of households. These heating units are installed in a single room of the house, and are a very cost effective option if you are just looking to heat one small area.
A space heating system is usually powered by gas, and so is a cheaper unit to run when compared to an electric heater system. Natural gas heaters can cost a third of what electric heaters do per year. Alongside that, these units are only built to heat a single room. This makes them a much cheaper alternative when compared to ducted heating systems, which are designed and installed to heat an entire house.
As the majority of these units are a type of gas heater, it is important that they have safety features in place to ensure your warm air is provided to you safely. Space heaters are installed in your home with a flue leading outside your home. The flue expels any dangerous gases from your home, leaving the heat to circulate the room.
If the overall look of your heater is important to you, then these heating elements might be a good option. They come in a large variety of designs and sizes, so you can easily find the perfect aesthetic fit for your home.

Gas Space Heater
Gas space heaters are a great option for those looking to heat a room without breaking the bank with the running costs. While more costly upfront, a gas space heater will cost you less to run than their electric counterparts.

Electric Space Heater
Not everyone has access to natural gas or wants to use LPG. That's where an electric space heater comes in. Whether you're after an oil, ceramic, panel or fan electric space heater, Jim's Air Conditioning can help.

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 do use less energy when compared to central heat, however, they aren’t as efficient. Electronically powered space heaters that produce heat radiation are the most efficient model and are good options for warming up small spaces in your home.
Can space heaters cause fires?
Combustion space heaters, such as gas log fires, do have a risk of causing a house fire. These models burn flammable fuel for power, and so must be used with caution in the home. It is important to research safe use of a space heater before purchase and follow basic precautions to prevent a fire.
Are space heaters safe to leave on all night?
It is not recommended for a space heater to be left running overnight. Space heaters so have several potential high risk factors, including fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
To heat your room overnight, it’s instead recommended that you heat your room for about 2-3 hours before you sleep and then turn off your heater. The heat will remain in your room for several hours, and you won’t be putting your sleeping self at risk.
