Make the best electric heater choice for your needs

The huge range of electric heating options available from the HEATSTRIP® range can make it tricky to decide on the best electrical heater for your particular space, budget and other requirements.

The ‘Which Product Do I Need’ table below can point you in the right direction based on the intended application of your heater. Factors affecting your product choice will include:

  • the size of the area (please refer to product manual)
  • your lifestyle
  • indoors or outdoors location
  • commercial or residential use
  • whether the outdoor area is exposed or undercover* (*when using outdoor blinds to protect the area from the elements)

As you can imagine, a small undercover patio will require a less powerful heater than a large al-fresco dining area; just as a large open-plan house will need more ‘grunt’ from a heater than a small flat.

If you require further information or advice on which product is the best for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or call (03) 9562 3455.
