The weather in Portland has been chilly. I’m taking about snow and freezing rain chilly that just render the 80s insulation of our house somewhat useless.    Also,  we have a 2700 square foot home and heating costs can get a little crazy  so I started to look at small portable heaters.

I have two little kids so of course, my first concern was what would be the safest option.  After some research I  decided I was going to get a ceramic heater.

Ceramic heaters are cool to the touch (important with kids around)  because they work by heating ceramic inside the machine.  The heat is them absorbed by aluminum and then the hot air is blown into your room using an interior fan.

They also have safety features build in like if for instance it tips over, it will shut off (again perfect when you have kids or animals in your house).  So are ceramic heaters safe? Yes, they are in my humble opinion.

I was excited to check out the Honeywell UberHeat™ Ceramic Heater and Honeywell HeatGenius™ Ceramic Heater. 



Don’t let the small size of the UnberHeat™ fool you. This thing HEATS UP a small room quick.  My husband is using it in the garage and it packs a surprising punch of  heat.   This is great for a small room or office. It has two options for heat settings.

When the weather turned to snow and freezing ice, I started to use the HeatGenius™ in my bedroom. I co-sleep and when I woke up in the night to nurse Bubba, he would have the coldest little arms.  Even with warm sleepwear this was happening and after I started using this at night, he was toasty warm (and slept longer! Hallelujah!). This has 6 different heat settings, a timer and a quiet mode.  Honestly, it’s not very loud and the sound acts as white noise, which again, helps my son sleep so I’m not complaining.

If I had to pick which one of these was my favorite, I’m going to go with the HeatGenius™  because it heats up a larger space and has so many settings.
