Best Heaters of 2019


We’ve spent over 100 hours testing, evaluating and researching heating appliances across five categories since 2014. Our tests and evaluations focus on heating power, energy efficiency and convenience features to help you learn what’s important when shopping for a new heater.

While no heater is suitable for every situation, each of the heaters below represents the best performance in its class. For example, the Lasko 6462 is a superior portable space heater due to its 360-degree oscillation, which helps circulate heated air more effectively through a room.

Beyond the heaters listed here, you can find additional information in our expanded comparisons for electric fireplaces, space heaters, gas furnaces, patio heaters and baseboard heaters.
