Over the past few years, heating technology has rapidly improved in Pakistan. In ancient times, people used to lit wood on the fire to heat themselves. With the changing time, things got upgraded, and we were given gas heaters which were more environmentally friendly than burning woods. But soon, we started running out of natural gas too. Voila, humans intervened once again and gave us the most eco-friendly solution, an electric heater.
We were also given many different solutions during this time, including the radiator, oil, boiler, fan, mica, floor, water, electric fireplace, kick space, and baseboard heaters.
Types of Room Heaters:
There are mainly 3 types of room heaters available in Pakistan, which include gas, electric, and hybrid heaters.
Although Electric heaters are the most desired choice for any home, but they are still expensive. People who can’t afford them use gas heaters.
They came in different sizes according to plate structure. The structure includes a single plate, 2 plates, and 4 plates. They usually have a metal frame with 2 modes, pilot and heating. You need to connect your gas terminal and lit it up with a matchstick.
Special Heating plates are used in these heaters. They can sustain the heat for a more extended period. In this manner, they preserve their heating efficiency.
With the rapid advancement in heating technology, a combination of gas and electricity came into existence. This technology is still unstable and requires more time to mature. This heating method hasn’t overcome the burning of oxygen yet.
A lot of people have moved from gas heaters to electric heaters now. The accidents and adverse health effects produced due to gas-burning have been reduced significantly due to this act. They are best for heating indoors in a short amount of time and save electricity efficiently.
These heaters are further divided into below categories
They are often used for centralized heating of halls and large rooms. They consume a minimum of 1000 watts and sometimes give a burning plastic smell. That’s why we recommend checking the quality of plastic used in the fan heater that you are purchasing.
They are mainly used for outdoor heating. They have a quartz tube, which is built by melting natural quartz crystals. A single quartz rod can last as long as 2 years and utilize around 400 watts.
They provide you smell free natural heated air. Unlike fan heaters, they have ceramic stones inside them. A blower at the back throws air that gets heated when it passes through that heated stone.
Carbon tube heaters
They are the most energy-efficient heaters. They have a carbon rod, which can adjust its temperature. They can work even at 100 watts.
They work on the same principle as Quartz heaters but are more efficient in warming due to halogen gas tubes. They aren’t as bright as quartz heaters but do last a lot longer than quartz tubes.
They are also called Radiator heaters and are common in houses where people don’t want to drag heaters with themselves. Neither have a heating duct in their ceiling nor want a gas combustion solution for heating. These heaters are the ideal choice for the bedroom as they don’t burn anything. Instead, they rely on the electric power supply and mineral oil. The oil in the reservoirs heats up and transmits its thermal energy all around your room without any health hazard effects.
They are generally the most potent heating solution after gas combustion. Oil heaters have an efficient safety mechanism, like tilt power cut-off and automatic temperature control system. They are bit expensive but saves you a lot of trouble that comes with other conventional heating solution.
Heater Selection Guide
Through years of selling experience, our expert advice always helps our buyers to narrow down their search for a suitable heater.
A good heater fulfills your buying purpose. E.g., some people want a heater for their office or workspace. In that case, a small electric heater would be a get-go choice.
We often come across requirements for a heater in the open air; a Quartz heater fulfills this requirement. In lots of open sitting restaurants, they have used a space heater. But if space is quite wide, we recommend a patio heater due to its intense heat.
Sometimes people demand a room heater for their bedrooms and tv lounges. That would continuously work for 8-9 hours. In that case, we recommend them Carbon heaters. So far, it’s the most energy-efficient heater that can operate on 100watts.
Many personals want an economical heater that doesn’t pollute their environment as they want it just for personal use. They could buy plain infrared heaters.
Note: A single quartz tube has a life of 2 years.
Before buying, you must always consider the space in which you want your heater to adjust. Some people prefer large heaters due to the dedicated artificial furnace space in the house, while others demand a small heater easily carried between places. We also received few queries for a portable fan heater that operates on a battery. But we don’t recommend those, as they drain the battery within minutes of their use.
If we make a fair comparison, our winner would be an Electric Heater. It consumes less energy, warms your indoor in less time, is more eco-friendly than any other solution, and consumes less space. On top of these, they also have far more advanced operations and extra safety features.
Heater Prices in 2021:
A regular heater might cost you as low as 1000/- PKR and as much as 10,000/- PKR, but we don’t recommend them based on price. We believe that the worth of the heater isn’t decided by upfront money but by the long-term savings it provides.
For that reason, we always recommend Carbon Heater to our customers, which takes as low as the power consumption of a single fan.
Famous Brands of Heaters
Mostly used heater’s bands (including local and internal/imported heater) included Annex, Simbo, black and decker, Panasonic, Rinnai, Geepass, NTN, and GREE heaters. All of these brands have distinct features to offer their customers. Few of them also offer hybrid heaters that operate on both gas and electricity.
