Our hands and feet are often the first parts of our body to feel the cold. Especially in the transitional period but also in rooms with little or no heating such as offices, attics, storerooms or hobby rooms, it often gets cold, making it impossible to focus on the job at hand or even ending up with us catching a cold.
Rooms with little heating
During the cold months of the year, offices are often found to be cold. The same goes for basements, hobby rooms or rooms that are not used very often. That’s because they are not usually heated all year round and have little heating as they are rarely permanently in use.
In the transitional period (autumn/spring), it’s often not time to put the central heating on yet or it’s already been switched off – but we’re freezing. Those are the times when we have to make our homes cosy and warm ourselves – and the best way to do that is with a fan heater from Stadler Form.etails on availability, style, or even provide a review.
If the central heating isn’t enough, a fan heater can produce the boost of heat that you need. For instance, an employee who is freezing in an open-plan office can use this separate source of heat to keep his feet warm without disturbing his colleagues. Or it can provide a bit of extra warmth at the changing table so that your baby doesn’t get cold during changing.

Tips for purchasing a fan heater
There is a fan heater to suit every need. To make sure that you choose the right one for you, it’s a good idea to work out exactly what you need before you start. Our most important tip: always pay attention to safety and only buy devices with overheat and tilt protection.
Not all fan heaters are suitable for any room size. Make sure that you know how many square metres you want the device to heat and find out which is the right fan heater for your needs before making a purchase. As a rule, manufacturers work on the basis of a room height of 2.5 m.
A heater is suitable for use in many areas such as your living room, children’s room, kitchen, bathroom, study, garage, hobby room, campervan, summer house or even if the central heating breaks down. Please note that IP21 protection (splash protection) is imperative when using a heater in the bathroom.
There are different types of fan heater technology: PTC ceramic heaters, fan heaters, quartz heaters, oil-filled radiators or infrared heaters. It is a matter of individual well-being as to which technology is chosen. Testing the different types of technology at an approved retailer is therefore recommended.
Power consumption only becomes very high if attention is not paid to the time and setting at which the fan heater is running. The amount of power consumed will never exceed the rated output of the fan heater (in watts). So, heaters are not power guzzlers as they produce the same amount of energy (in the form of heat) as they consume.
With a fan heater, it’s not only the decibel level that you need to look at as there are a whole range of different frequencies involved. So, a frequency can cause considerable nuisance even though the decibel level is within the tolerance range. That is why before making a purchase, you are recommended to ask for a fan heater to be set up in a quiet part of the shop so that you can listen to it running.
Nowadays, a great deal of importance is attached to technical equipment. With fan heaters, this means the number of heat settings, whether there is an integrated thermostat or whether the fan heater actually regulates the heat levels automatically, as is the case with the Adaptive Heat™ technology in fan heater Paul from Stadler Form. There are even fan heaters that come with a remote control.
Make sure that the heater you choose has a frost protection function to prevent frost forming in your holiday home or summer house, for example.
