1. An air flow heater that delivers heat at the floor level for full-body comfort and adjusts its heat output based on the area's temperature for you.

Adjusts from 750–1500 watts as needed to maintain comfort; auto overheat protection; auto turnoff when tipped; space-saving design so you can place it up against a wallPromising review: "We have tried every tower and quiet heater and they just would not adequately heat a room. This one heats up a 500 sq. ft. living room with ease and expediency. It has the usual auto turnoff when tipped but it is so sturdy that ours has yet to tip despite a couple of attempts by our dogs. I like that when it is turned to the max setting it doesn't turn off. We leave it at the highest setting and then once we are comfortable we turn it down until the dial clicks. This is all you have to do to maintain that temperature. While it may not be the quietest heater it actually heats consistently and we personally don't think it is loud or distracting. We usually run it in the living room in the evenings while watching television and it has never taken away from our experience." —Mark ArnoldPrice: $40.92

2. A quick-heating radiator powered by oil for some major energy efficiency.

700 watts; adjustable thermostat; uses permanently sealed oil, which means no refillingPromising review: "So smol. This is the perfect size to heat up the small closet I keep my snakes in. I would say the dimensions were 15"x11"x5"-ish. There's no readout on the product, but I use an AcuRite to keep track." —AmsmtfPrice: $45.99+ (available in three heights)

3. A small but mighty heater with cool-touch settings so you it'll be NBD if you park it on top of your dresser.

amazon.com, Amazon

1500 watts; two heat settings and thermostat

Promising review: "This little heater puts out so much more heat than I was expecting. I have it in my bedroom (about 12"x17") and it keeps it nice and toasty! It has a temperature gauge so if the room gets to the temp on the dial, it will stop blowing heat. And it gets pretty hot, so I have my temperature gauge turned down to a little less than half way. I love the sleek look of the heater, it complements my room nicely with its modern look, which is very important to me. The cool touch shell is a big plus since the heater sits on top of my dresser. My husband had suspicions about this when I ordered it because of the small size but even he said he is impressed with the power of it, it works so much better than our last space heater. The fan in the heater is a tiny bit noisy, but I like that because I like having white noise when I go to sleep, it’s not too loud. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Definitely worth the price!" —Leanne S.

Price: $34.99+ (also available in black)

4. A propane cabinet heater as a utility model to help keep your garage toasty while you practice those hobbies of yours.

Variable output of 6K-12K-18K BTUs; weighs 20 lbs.; hose and regulator included; not for use in living areas; heats areas up to 450 sq. ft.Promising review: "This little heater is easy to set up. We skipped the wheels, as we placed it on a small table for outside use. It was in the 40s this a.m. and I used it outside on our porch to heat up the area around table so I could paint. Works Sweet!! if you tip it, even a little, it will turn off — which is great!" —John StorbeckPrice: $109

5. A commercial-grade heater you can use as a toasty option in a shop or garage where you spend all your free time.

Amazon, amazon.com

Heavy-duty 240 volt single phase 3000–6000 watts; adjustable setting; can be mounted on wall or ceiling

Promising review: "The heater works very well in this garage. I mounted it so a 6' man can to reach the controls easily but it's high enough to be out of the way. I added a safety chain because underneath will be classic car restoration and I didn't want to take any chances of the heater falling. Specs call for 35 amp breaker; I installed it with a 30 amp. The heater has two settings: 3,000 watts and 6,000 watts. A 30 amp breaker at 240V can support 7,200 watts. In engineering capacity, the rule of thumb is figure 80% which is 5,760 watts. However, there is nothing else on this circuit and the total length of wiring is only about 20'. So, there is no risk of overload." —MT

Price: $161.84+ (available in three styles)

6. An infrared indoor fireplace in case you'd like the crackling-logs vibe without chopping up your own wood. (It's hard work!)

1500 watts and 5100 BTUs; infrared technology uses less energy to produce even heat from floor to ceiling; recommended for single room up to 150 sq. ft.Promising review: "I purchased this heater a few weeks ago because our old wood fireplace became too risky to burn and we weren't ready to give up the fireplace ambiance. We boxed in the fireplace, inset the heater, allowing plenty of space for air flow and turned it on. It is truly amazing how realistic the lookalike fire is. When this old house was built sheetrock and siding was all the insulation used (pier and beam). With the outside temps ranging in the high teens to the mid thirties this unit is keeping a 16"x22" family room and a 12"x12" dining area at a comfortable 70 set on 72 degrees. The unit is on about a third of the time. We have been heating our home with electricity. We now heat totally with four LifeSmart heaters ranging four to eight elements. Comparing the last three years our electric bill has dropped somewhere between 20–25% by using infrared heaters. I'm sure I'll miss cutting wood, going out in the cold for wet logs to start and the ashes to clean out. You think." —Will DPrice: $389.99

8. A space-saving bathroom heater so your teeth don't start chattering as soon as you cut off the water.

Amazon, amazon.com

1500 watts; quickly heats areas up to 225 sq. ft.; auto overheat protection; one-hour shutoff

Promising review: "We have a large, very cold bathroom and this little heater warms up the space in no time. It has a one-hour setting, and high and low. The one hour is perfect to turn on before getting into the shower so the room is toasty when I get out instead of an unsettling, freezing cold! And if I get up in the night, I blast the high setting. It is a tiny unit, easily tucked into a corner of the bathroom. So far, it is a great product and everyone in our house is happy to have a cozy bathroom! The delivery time was very prompt." —lovlielovie

Price: $50.04

9. A sleek infrared model — it can rapidly heat up a medium- to large-sized room before you turn into a total icicle.

1500 watts, 120 volts power, and weighs 11.5 lbs.; made for heating a medium- to large-sized room; dual heating system; Promising review: "Our house has a kitchen that came up short on the heating ration from the furnace so it is really nice to have a dependable portable heat source. This little heater warms up a 12"x20" tile floor room without having to be set on a very high heat setting. A steady and quiet fan distributes the heat. I am very pleased with this heater and will probably buy another one for my craft room upstairs." —Nancy K.Price: $84.99 (available in two more styles)

10. An infrared portable space heater with a lifetime filter and casters for easy moving, so you may come to swear by it like the thousands who bought it before you! (And their bunnies!)

Amazon, amazon.com

1500 watts, uses 12.5 amps of power, and weighs 24 lbs.; temperature range of 50–86 degrees; lifetime filter; casters for easy moving; tip-over protection; overheating protection; remote control

Promising review: "I went through last year's NYC winter in my drafty pre-war apartment wearing three layers at night. This heater is small but it's really powerful. I expect an increase in my electric bill but it's a small price to pay for comfort. I live in a building with heat controlled by the owner, so I can't increase the temperature in my home without a portable heater like this. The added electrical cost might be worth considering if you aren't in a situation like mine. But for me, this is a great little addition to my life. Highly recommend. It's worth the price for the quality you get. I'm VERY a happy with my purchase!" —Mary C
