Are you going to need to move the infrared heater around your home, or will you be leaving it in the same room at all times? The amount of portability that you need will greatly influence the kind of heater that you should choose.
Maximum portability – If you want a heater that you will be able to take from room to room with ease, you should look out for ones that have carry handles and wheels. These units can be conveniently and easily moved around your home and are usually designed to be lightweight. You should be careful however if the unit has castor wheels, as these heaters could be a little easier to tip over than stationary units.
Limited portability – If you would simply like to move the heater around the room, or just have a heater that will be able to stand in the middle of the room whilst you are using it, then you could purchase a larger unit. These are better if you need to heat a particularly large space and they are usually difficult to tip over.
Fixed units – if you need to install a heater in your home, garage or business and you want to ensure that it is completely safe and permanent, you can purchase fixed infrared heaters. These may be attached to the wall so that they can remain in the same position. The fixed infrared heater is the sensible choice if you want a heater that cannot be tipped over and a solution that can be safely mounted out of reach.
