The Best Quiet Space Heaters
A quiet space heater for any room
There lots of space heaters on the market and they all claim to be quiet or silent. But when you want to stay warm in your bedroom, office, or anywhere that the constant drone of a fan is going to be annoying, you want something that's truly silent, safe, and isn't going to send your power bill through the roof.
We've found the best, truly quite space heaters, for a variety of room sizes, including portable and permanent options.

If you want a more sleek or space saving setup, the castors which make it easy to move around on carpet or hard floors (whout leaving marks) can be removed and the heater can be wall mounted. Note that if you want to wall mount it, get it professionally installed with some insulation between the heater and the wall as the back can get fairly warm..
