I joined the tiny house movement, and did not install heat in my home. Living in Tennessee, this isn't exactly smart, so I turned to space heaters for warmth. This is what I eventually settled on when several others stopped working. I did not think this was going to work at first, since there is no fan, but I frequently turn it off because it flat gets too warm with the other very small space heaters in the kid's room and bathroom. It has varying heat temps, so I can turn it up or down as the house warms up. It is also small, and can be moved afroud the perimeter of the room as needed, or placed in the center to make it warmer faster. This works so well, we haven't bothered to upgrade to a different unit, and won't until it stops working.
