Most heaters generate heat of up to 1400W. This is a very common heat range and normally would be enough most of the homes or large spaces. A typical space heater also comes equipped with shock protection, and guarantees of heat to prevent overheating. Most of the heaters can be connected to a 120v outlet and this heater voltage can be handled safely. Most heaters also offer protection against shock to prevent fires from occurring.

The point of the ceramic heater is larger than al which means that the heater can be adjusted to a lower temperature, while the energy is released to cover a larger area, ceramic heaters are also more efficient so they can keep heat from a longer period of time.

On the other hand, oil-based heaters are similar to a car radiator. Heating oil used to power the heating element. Base oil heaters are also very efficient since the heating mechanism need not be at all times. Based heating oil may continue for several hours with a short heat load. Base oil heaters are very easy to clean and maintain, and since there are no working parts, is very quiet.

Coil heaters using metal coils that are heated by infra red waves. Thus, the coils are heated and warm the air entering through the coils. Such heaters are prone to accidents so there are safety screens to protect the heating element.
