Electric heater reviews

We test and compare more than 30 heaters, including models from DeLonghi, Dyson, Sunbeam and more.

Last updated: 19th May 2015

They're not the best for big spaces, but electric heaters can take the chill out of a small room pretty quickly. We test 31 models, ranging in price from $39 to $699, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which are easiest to use
  • which are the best fan, column, convection, radiant and ceramic heaters.

Need to know which type is right for your home before you buy? See our electric heater buying guide here for our expert tips. You can find out how we test electric heaters here.

Recall notice 19 June 2015: Woolworths has recalled four electric heaters: Essentials Upright Fan Heater, Essentials Oscillating Fan Heater, Adesso Oscillating Ceramic Fan Heater and Contempo Oscillating Ceramic Fan Heater. They have faulty power plugs; the pins can dislodge when the plug is removed from a power point. We haven’t tested any of these models. See the recall website for more information. You can also register for the ACCC's free product recall alerts.
