Bedroom Heater - Saving Money While You Sleep

By Tanya Turner

Winter energy bills can be terribly upsetting. It seems that we spend way too much on heating our homes in cold weather. Wouldn't it be better to spend this money on something more fun? Well, there are several ways to cut your energy bill, and the simplest way is to invest in a bedroom heater.

We spend almost one third of our life in bed and there is no need to have central heating on while you sleep. It is only the bedroom that you want to be warm at night, is not it? For the bedroom you can get a separate wall heater or a portable electrical heater. Make sure you select a heater that is safe and doesn't require constant attention. Heaters with open radian element should not be used. It can start a fire if a curtain or your cloth blows across the heating element.

Bedroom Heater Features

The best choice for a bedroom heater is oil filled radiators. They are safe, silent (which is very important while you are asleep) and they provide enough heat to comfortably warm up an average size bedroom.

It pays off to get a more expensive model that has a timer. This way you can set it to warm the room more before you have to wake up and get out of bed. But while you are actually asleep it is best to have the temperature not too warm.

Also some new models have an instant heat button that allows you to heat up your room very quickly. This is very useful if you forgot to set the timer or when you just came back home and want to warm up fast.

To find the right size heater for your bedroom, look at its specifications. Most models tell you for what heating aria they are intended. Don't assume the bigger the better. Heater that is too big will not provide any additional benefits, but will consume more energy than necessary.

More Energy Saving Tips

Did you know that you can add timers to your central heating? There is no need to make your central heater work all day while you are at work. With the timer you can make it switch on about half an hour before you come home, this will warm up your house adequately. Of course, this won't work if you have pets, they dread cold as much as we do.

Also check all drafts and increase insulation. If you have old windows, consider replacing them with storm windows. Having good insulation can make a huge difference, especially when it is windy outside.

In conclusion, a bedroom heater is very convenient and saves you a great deal. So if you don't have one yet, it is time to compare different models of bedroom heaters and get one that is suitable for your room.
