Here are the 3 best space heaters for hot yoga at home
Dr Infrared Portable Space Heater Elite DR988
This is a superior space heater which weighs 26 pounds and measures 16 × 11 × 16. It features a dual heating system which provides both convection and infrared radiation, which makes it the perfect choice for warming up a medium to large size room. On top of all the impressive features offered by its predecessor, the DR 968H, this new version includes two powerful new benefits, an air purifier and an oscillating fan.
That makes it four distinct appliances all included under the housing of a single appliance, because it can actually serve as an oscillating fan, an air purifier, a heater, and a humidifier. The oscillating mode is excellent for distributing heat throughout a large room, and it can accomplish that general distribution much faster than even its very capable predecessor could.
Dehumidification capabilities of the unit include a built-in ultrasonic humidifier which is silent in operation and is ideal for adding moisture into the dry winter air. For this function, you only need a water bottle which can be easily and securely attached at the back of the heater. The water bottle itself holds 500 mL of liquid, which means it can sustain humidification for about eight hours.
When you do not need humidification, that part of the unit can be turned off, and it will also shut off automatically when the water bottle is empty, so as not to create a safety hazard. Both the oscillating fan and the air purifier can be operated separately or turned off, so that you are only using the actual functions you want at any given time. You will also enjoy the fact that the blower is extremely quiet, always staying below 40 dB while in operation.

At your option, you can use a programmable timer that allows for settings over a full 12-hour span. This unit comes with terrific safety features against overheating and tipping over, so you will not have to worry about accidents during your hot yoga sessions. It heats up very quickly and generates as much as 60% more heat than most other units now on the market.
Wiland Ceramic Space Heater with Humidifier
This unit measures 17.2 × 9.4 × 8.8, and only weighs a little more than 8 pounds, so it is extremely portable and easy to manage. There are two operating modes, the first of which is at 750 W and provides temperatures between 86° and 104°F. When you use the 1500-watt mode, you can crank up the heat to between 104° and 122°, for lots of additional warmth.
Since it is a ceramic heater and has a fan to boost the convection, the space heater can quickly heat up a large room. It also oscillates 90° left and right, so that there is an even distribution within the room of all heat which gets generated. It includes a programmable timer which can be set anywhere between one hour and 12 hours, and it has a fireproof exterior.
It includes safety features such as tip over protection and overheating protection. It has a sleek outline which is shaped like a tower heater, but it is also extremely efficient in terms of the space it takes up in your household. It offers humidification as well, being equipped with a water tank that can hold a liter of water, and that will guarantee about six hours of humidification. It is easy to add water to the heater, just slide the water tank out from underneath the heater, fill it up, and then slide it back in.
That also makes it extremely easy to wash the unit when cleaning is necessary. The humidifier is a separate function and can be used either with or without the space heater, so you can use either function in standalone mode. This unit has a fan which is silent for all intents and purposes since it can barely be heard during operation. Positive customer reviews have focused on its ability to heat up a room of moderate to large size very quickly.

This space heater weighs 19 pounds and measures 9.8 × 8.1 × 30 inches. It operates on 1500 W of power and includes a full two-year warranty. It has functions which include a fan, an air purifier, and a space heater, all of which are available in this single appliance. When the heater is used in conjunction with the fan, it can distribute purified heat all throughout a large-sized room, and to distribute that heat evenly.
The fan includes a full 350° of oscillation, which makes it one of the best oscillating space heaters on the market. One of the more interesting features of this unit are its air purification properties which include an inbuilt sensor that is automatically capable of detecting gases and various airborne particles. When it does detect any of these pollutants, it displays them in real time on an LCD readout screen.
Having identified which types of pollutants are present, the unit then automatically begins capturing them and filtering them from the air. To do this, it includes both HEPA filters and carbon filters, and together they can capture 99.97% of all the fine particles which are deemed undesirable. It also helps to eliminate odors from the room, so if you really work up a heavy sweat during your hot yoga session, you will not have to worry about any unpleasant odors developing.
Of course, you can operate these features in standalone mode if you choose to, so you can take advantage of the air purification capability without using the space heater itself. You can also connect this unit to your mobile phone so that you can get real-time reports on the quality of your indoor air. That also means that you can use your mobile phone as a remote control, and you can manage it via Alexa commands, so you can switch the heater on and off whenever you choose to.
