Now, thanks to advances in design and engineering, space heaters
are earning passing marks for aesthetics, and even moderately priced models have safety and efficiency features that were rarely, if ever, seen a decade ago.
The high levels of fine particulate matter and carbon monoxide, released by the burning of solid fuels such as wood, coal, animal dung, crop waste, and charcoal in inefficient stoves, space heaters
or lamps, increased the risks of stroke, ischemic heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
All convective space heaters
come with a battery charging adapter, NSN 4520-01493-2810, that must be used with a commercial or SATS 12V battery charger.
With these two proposals, we're suggesting space heaters

, some years after condensing boilers became commonplace.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), home space heaters

Affordable energy efficient space heaters
typically cost between $20 and $60.
This past winter, Equinox House was heated by two 1,500 W space heaters

Electric space heaters
break down into two basic types: radiant or convection (with or without a fan).
Place space heaters
