If you are considering purchasing a home heating device, you will find that you have many types and brands to choose from. Each type has its own unique qualities and appearance, but they all serve the same purpose – to provide you with a comfortable and warm environment. Indoor heaters are a great option for homeowners seeking to reduce their utility bills since they do not require as much energy as central heating systems. In the following article, the benefits and various types of heaters will be discussed in detail. This will allow you to choose the one that best fits your home heating needs.
Benefits of Heaters
There are numerous benefits associated with heaters. Many of these benefits include issues related to energy and convenience. Some of these benefits include:
·Costs less to operate than central heating systems
·Portable heaters can be transported and used anywhere you have access to electricity
·Offer additional efficiency since your electricity will be converted directly into heat
·Safety features to prevent heaters overheating and tip-over problems
·No professional installation costs
·Excellent resource during power outages
Portable heaters can be used on cool spring and fall days when you don’t feel like running your entire system. They are also ideal during winter months if a particular area of your home fails to receive an adequate amount of heat.
Infrared heaters use extremely high temperatures to transfer energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. Depending on the wavelength, this temperature can be either high or low. These heaters are valued due to their ability to heat quickly and evenly heat large spaces. Infrared heaters are an excellent choice for individuals who need instant access to high-quality heat.
Baseboard heaters derive their name from the fact that they are positioned near the baseboard (the lower part of the wall near the floor). These tend to be relatively low-profile, so there is no need to worry about your heater taking up space or sticking out. If your room suffers from a drafty window, your baseboard heater can be placed just below it in order to combat the cool air that seeps in. Baseboard heaters are highly valued due to the fact that they directly heat the heavy cold air when it sinks to the floor.
Portable heaters are often praised for their convenience. Most are incredibly hearty, but still affordable in most areas. These heaters can be moved from room to room, and newer models feature safety features such as thermostats and automatic-shutoff. As long as you have access to electricity, you will be able to use your portable heater.
If you or your family enjoys spending large amounts of time outdoors, you may want to consider purchasing an outdoor heater. These heaters are perfect for patios, decks, and other outdoor seating areas. They heat the air around you to a comfortable temperature, allowing you to enjoy fresh air and nature on cool evenings. Some models are portable and can be used indoors as well.
Much like baseboard heaters, wall heaters can be installed in a variety of locations. As the name suggests, they are usually installed inside of the wall. This allows them to heat a large area without taking up too much space. Many come with integrated thermostats.
Garage heaters, or utility heaters, as they are sometimes referred to, are the ideal heating solution for industrial spaces. These heaters are built to the highest standards, and they can provide quick and even heating to spaces that are traditionally difficult to heat, such as garages or sheds. They are constructed with durability in mind and many have the potential to last several years.
Fire Pits & Chimineas
Fire pits and chimineas serve two distinct purposes. First of all, they make wonderful decorative pieces for outdoor living areas. Secondly, they provide a sufficient amount of heat during cool nights and winter months. They come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and prices. Many are propane or natural-gas operated with electric burners.

California Prop 65
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
For complete list of these chemicals, visit: http://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/proposition-65-list
What is the California Proposition 65 Warning?
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
