Best small space heater?

Sunbeam space heater on a nice shelf What kind of space heater do I use to heat my small room?

I like the Sunbeam model. The thermostat does a good job at holding a temperature without turning on and off every minute like the cheaper made ones.

The indicator light that tells you it's on was easy to mute by taking the cover off and covering the small LED with electrical tape. I like a dark room with zero light noise at night. The new version was upgraded with a digital display.

We like those small oil filled heaters, because the oil heats up and stays hot, allowing some savings of the electric. And there's quite a bit of range in the thermostat too. When needing to quickly dry some paintings to be shipped for a show, I have been known to turn this heater on real low and prop the wet paintings around it.

I'm with Deb. I use one of those in the chicken coop, too, when it gets bitterly cold and don't have to worry about it igniting the bedding.
