What is a Ceramic Heater?

Ceramic heaters are a very popular type of portable heater. They use ceramic plates and aluminum baffles to conduct heat that circulates warm air throughout an entire room. Electric ceramic heaters provide quick, focused heating by directing warmth to where it's needed most. Consumers like these heaters because they warm up in a matter of seconds.

How do ceramic heaters heat up so quickly?

Because of the speed at which the ceramic plates heat up, these heaters produce heat much more quickly than older coil heaters at a fraction of the energy cost. To make this process even quicker, many ceramic heaters contain multiple plates so that a smaller amount of ceramic material has to be heated at once.

What areas are ceramic electric heaters best suited for?

These units are ideal for providing directional heat to small to medium-sized rooms or areas. If you need a portable heater that will fit on a table or desk, a ceramic space heater is a great choice.

Are they safe?

Today's ceramic heaters are incredibly safe to operate. Most have thermostats to make sure they don't overheat. To prevent fire, a heater's fans will continue to run for a few minutes once the heating elements have been turned off so as to cool the ceramic plates down even faster. Additional safety features can include a tip-over safety switch and cool touch grills.

Do ceramic heaters come in different styles?

Yes. They come in a variety of shapes and styles, from slim tower ceramic heaters to portable compact units. They generally all work the same, so the style you choose depends on your personal preference and the area you're trying to heat. Some of our most popular brands include Lasko and Holmes ceramic heaters.
