Although we’re blessed with temperate and (mostly) sunny weather in South Africa, it doesn’t mean we’re completely immune to a little winter cold here and there. The middle of the day might be a safe haven, but the mornings and evenings can still do their best impression of a proper winter.
So no matter what your preference as far as heating equipment goes, we’re going to look at a few of the best heaters you can use to avoid the dropping temperatures getting you down!
Alva 9KG Gas Heater
Price: from R849
Having a gas heater, at least as one option, makes sense for a few practical reasons, with the most important being a uniquely South African conundrumL load-shedding. Nothing is worse than being put through a bout of load-shedding when all your heating options are electrical. This gas heater uses a 9KG cylinder that’ll keep you nice and toasty whether the lights are on or off.
DeLonghi HCX9120E Convector Heater
Price: from R1, 199
This is definitely one of the most impressive heaters you’re likely to find, and it packs a whole lot of convenient technology into its sleek frame. You can modulate its heating output with three power settings: 800w, 1200w, or its full 2000w; you can manage its on/off cycle with a 24 hour timer, and it has a touch panel that makes all the settings available on a single screen.
Taurus Glass Electric Heater
Price: from R999
For shoppers who value form just as much as they value function, this Taurus is the perfect way to heat a room while keeping it aesthetically pleasing. It has a 1500w output, slim design, and overheat protection and a thermal cut-out as its safety features, too.
These are three of the best options across a range of prices, but there are dozens of other options available on PriceCheck – so if you need some more heater options or if you’re hunting for any other appliances, head over to their site and have a look at their range!
