The office space is 400 square feet and for the most part square and open. I am looking for a space heater that can heat the entire space throughout the winter (we live in New England) so we don't have to turn on the gas. A unit that is energy efficient, can heat a 400 sq. foot space and something that can heat a room constantly for up to 8 hours.
The most efficient space heater is one that's sized appropriately for the space it's being asked to heat. The heat output of space heaters varies widely, typically between 10,000 and 40,000 British thermal units (BTUs) per hour, and higher heat output comes at the cost of higher energy usage.
The Marley HBB1254 Qmark Baseboard Heater has an elegant design, and it's highly efficient at heating up any given room. While this model is definitely more expensive, it has an impressive output of 1,250 watts.
Vornado AVH2 Plus Whole Room Heater with Auto Climate Control. This space heater has four different operating modes. It is one of the best-rated units in our energy efficient space heater reviews. The first heating mode produces 750 Watts of heat, enough to warm up a small room.
A reverse-cycle air conditioner will be more efficient than an electric heater, and that same electric heater will most likely be more efficient than a gas heater. However, it's not quite as simple as that.
Oil tower heaters are generally small in stature, probably best suited to bedrooms or studies. Gas heaters. Also available to buy are gas-powered portable heaters. Rinnai seems to be the leading brand when it comes to gas heaters, with most appliances costing upwards of $1,000.
