choice.com.au lab test and review the latest electric heaters to help you find the best one for you.

The choice.com.au electric heater buying guide will help you decide which type of heater you need, and explains testing rigor and scoring method.

Which Heater?
Fan, radiant, oil-column, convection or panel

Purchase cost
On average, fan heater are less expensive to purchase, but tend to have higher running costs.

Running cost
On average, oil column heaters will be the cheapest on the market to run - but only by a narrow margin ahead of convection heaters such as panel and micathermic panels. There are some comfort trade-offs for that cheap running cost, primarily being slow to heat and inefficient without a fan.

Energy efficient
Your electric heater is 100% efficient - all of the electricity is being converted to heat. You can improve the effectiveness of the electric heater (insulation, stopping draughts, ceiling fans, make sure it has a fan built-in, etc), but you can't make it any more efficient than it already is.
