Earlier this year, I moved to a new place with windows facing a construction site. To make the air fresher in the room, I bought an air purifier. Then summer came. Trying to be environmentally friendly, I purchased a fan and reframed myself for most of the time from using the air conditioning in my room. Just recently, the temperature began to drop, and I started flirting with the idea of having a space heater that caters to my needs.

But living in a small apartment, I don’t have the luxury to have an air purifier, fan, and heater all in my place and not feel crowded. It brings me a headache just to think about storing up all these space heater, fan, air purifier and then taking them out to use every season.

That is why I think a space heater with multiple functions might be a good investment. Here are what I found.

The Envion FS200 is one of the machines that you can use to cope with various weather conditions throughout the year. The unit comes with a ceramic heater, which shuts off automatically when tipped over. A built-in true HEPA filter promises to screen out 99.97 percent of the tiny particles in the air.

The device offers three independent settings: a heater alone, a fan humidifier, and a heater humidifier. Some users found a hidden setting, saying that by turning the left knob to humidifier (water drops) and leaving the water tank empty, the humidifier belt will not turn. This gives you a fan-only mode that blows cool air.

  2. Heating element: ceramic

But HP04 goes an extra mile by combining an activated carbon filter to enhance its purifying function. The model also has a sensor to detect airborne particles automatically and reports air quality in the room through an LCD screen in real-time.

You can control HP04 in multiple ways through a cellphone app, Bluetooth, and Amazon Alexa, in addition to a remote control that can be magnetically attached to the machine.
