Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Space heaters provide the soothing warmth of a seat by the fireside wherever they're placed, but some types emit potentially harmful fumes, pose excessive burn risks or other safety hazards, and draw enough power to overload circuitry. These energy-efficient panel radiators are designed keep the chill at bay in close quarters without scorching anyone's digits or frying the wiring. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best panel heater on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 09, 2018:

Excluded certain models with potential safety issues, such as faulty wiring, suspicious smells, or a tendency to develop hot spots, focusing on models designed to minimize electrical faults, fire hazards, and burn risks, especially around children and pets.
