When it comes to drafty apartments, central heating systems can lead to exorbitant utility bills. In these situations, infrared heaters can be 2-3 times cheaper to use. The reason why infrared heaters are more efficient in drafty apartments is due to the fact that they heat the objects and people in a room and not the overall atmosphere. Furthermore, they can be used to heat one room at a time. However, even if you have decided that an infrared heater is the best choice for you, you still have to do some research in order to find the best model for your needs. If you have to heat up a space as big as 1500 square feet, you might want to check out the iheater IH-1500W Quartz Infrared Portable Heater and find out more about it in the review below.
