It sounds too good to be true. Can you tell me the facts? A: Glad to. A portable heater of any kind can conserve energy under certain conditions, but it doesn't necessary lower your energy bills. You see, a ~uOrtable heater can save central-heating el (foryour furnace orboiler) when you use the portable heater only in the room ~ou occupy and you keep your central eating system thermostat low so that the rest of the house stays cool. However, the cost of staying warm with a portable electric heater can be as much or more than the savings from keeping the majority of your house cool. This is because electricity is typically more expensive than fossil fuels (gas, oil, propane). Also, keep in mind that heating your entire home does more than keep you comfortable; it helps prevent frozen pipes. How do infrared-quartz lamp heat- ers compare to other portable electric ~PeaCe heaters? Well, all electric heaters liver the same amount of heat per dollar spent. What makes infrared- qbuartz lamp heaters different from some ut not all) heaters is the way they deliver heat. These heaters give off radiant heat. This means that they warm objects rather than air. When you're within range of a radiant heater, you feel warm. Conversely, a convection heater (such as a furnace or boiler system or a non-radiant portable heater) warms the air, which means you don't need to stay near the heater to be warm. If you're finding the need for supplemental heat, your house may have larger efficiency issues. It may be more cost-effective to pay to fix the causes of those issues once rather than to pay every winter to overcome the symptom (a cold house). ### EDITOR'S NOTE: Have a question about saving energy?
