“How can we use a heating element to heat up a room?”

 

During winter time we often need to heat up space. But making a fully built HVAC system can take a lot of time to warm a space. So what could we do to modify this? Well, let’s think of it from a systems perspective. We know that a heating element can be used to heat up a surrounding medium. And we know that fans can transfer one medium to another. So what if we were to combine both to take heat up and transfer air? This setup is known as a fan heater and is quicker but more expensive (due to the higher cost of electricity) than gas heaters.
