Types of Air King Space Heaters

Ceramic Heaters use a fan to blow air that has been warmed by a ceramic heating element. These types of heaters are appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room. The ceramic heating element produces heat by passing current through a self regulated heating element. The element adjusts itself to the surface temperature, regulating it to produce a constant heat. As air is passed through the element, it will adjust to maintain the temperature.

Die-Cast Heaters use convection that draws cold air from the floor. The air is warmed by heating coils and emitted from the top of the heater. A convection heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room.

How Powerful a Heater Do You Need?

Heaters are rated by BTU, which stands for British Thermal Unit (the amount of heat needed to heat one pound of water by 1 degree F). To find out how many BTU you need:

  • Calculate the volume of the space to be heated by multiplying square footage by height.
  • Multiply that number by 4 if your insulation is poor, 3 if it's average, or 2 if it's good.

The resulting number is a ballpark figure for how many BTU you'll need.
