It has gotten chilly. I’m wearing socks, a sweater, and comfy pants inside, but there’s one big addition I’m making to my home as we edge into the colder months: a portable space heater. I never needed one before, but now that I’m working from home, it’s nice to be warm all day. With a space heater (approved for indoor or outdoor use), you can warm up your home office and your patio if need be. They are easy to carry, and more importantly, safe. So you can stay warm all season long, we’ve rounded up some of the best portable space heaters money can buy.
Easily the sleekest heater of the bunch, this oscillating fan provides 1500 watts from an extremely minimal design. You can opt for the heat circulation setting or have a sweeping air flow, which makes it blow out air like a fan.
This portable heater is approved for indoor/outdoor use as long as the room is 225 square feet. It uses propane but don’t worry, it has an auto-shutoff valve in case it tips over, a fold down handle, and is clean burning
De’Longhi Oil Filled Radiator Space Heater

With top mounted controls and dual quartz tubes, this heater produces heat that warms and does so efficiently. This is great for mid-sized rooms and will heat people and objects directly in front of it. It’s easy to carry from room to room as well.
