Colorado Springs Ace Hardware stores have a full range of heaters to keep you warm during the chilly winter months. Our selection includes products from such manufacturers as EdenPURE, Honeywell, and Hunter. Of course, we also carry the accessories and furnace filters that keep things running smoothly.
Fighting the chill in the smaller areas of your home or work space doesn’t require a large heater. Space heaters and other types of portable heaters do a much better job. Ace Hardware in Colorado Springs offers a large selection of wall heaters, baseboard heaters, space heaters and outdoor living heaters that are incredibly effective, safe, and won’t break the bank. Portable kerosene or propane heaters are especially well-suited for places such as outdoor workshops or garages that aren’t connected to a central HVAC system.
Electric heaters, including infrared heaters, work well in your living room, bedroom or other rooms where more heat is needed in the house. Ace Hardware carries infrared, convection, ceramic, and other types of heaters to suit your comfort level and location requirements. Choosing the right fuel type for your need is a must. While many people select heaters for reasons of convenience and relatively low operating costs, it’s important to understand how different types of electric heaters warm the air.
An infrared heater is a heat lamp with the ability to transfer energy, and thereby heat, through electromagnetic radiation. This is a relatively efficient way of heating a space, as it requires no medium to transfer heat through.
A convection heater is a heater which operates by air convection currents circulating through the body of the appliance, and across its heating element. The air then heats up and becomes more buoyant, therefor rising.
Ceramic heaters most commonly take the form of commercial space heaters. These heaters use a heating element made of Positive Temperature Coefficient ceramic, which heats up when voltage is applied to it.
All of these types of heaters have practical applications and are carried by your local Ace Hardware. If you have any questions, please call one of our four convenient locations today!
