The colored portion of the unit is plastic, whereas the front grille is made of metal for a little aesthetic flourish. As compared to some other products we’ve seen so far, HCE200B space heater shuts itself off even if it overheats or falls over. Furthermore, a plastic body assures that it’s cool to the touch when in use, but the grille does have a tendency to heat up a little so avoid touching it if possible.

So it can easily be mounted on a wall, the ceiling or a floor stand.This isn’t for everyone as its high cost makes it an unsuitable choice for those looking to warm up small rooms and it’s too loud for these anyway. Rather, it provides heat to larger areas such as workshops, garages, that sort of thing. If you can congest it into your budget, and also won’t mind a little noise, give it a try, you won’t regret it.

It looks good as it’s made of matte black plastic and there’s a small LCD screen displays the current temperature and mode. In terms of size, it’s pretty large at 27.8 inches tall, 11.5 inches deep, and 10.2 inches wide and weighs seven pounds. Since this unit is made of plastic, it remains cool to the touch even after using a couple of hours.

10: Honeywell HZ-7300 Space Heater:
