The cold is starting to roll in - perhaps more slowly than years gone-by, but nevertheless, it's on its way.

Last year, with everyone at home, we spent a fortune keeping the house heated, and though we justified it by reminding ourselves we were saving money on the daily croissant and coffee we used to buy in the office, this year, we're after a more effective solution.

Enter: the ANSIO 2000W Mini Electric Fan Heater.

Currently 20% off on Amazon, this compact heater has been hailed by shoppers as a "must-have" for winter, and means you can save money by simply heating the room you are in, rather than the whole house. 

Why we rate it:

This ceramic heater has a small, compact design that hardly takes up any room and so can work in any size space to deliver heat evenly and efficiently. 

The heater has PTC heating element for faster and efficient heating compared to traditional fan heaters. 

Plus, it looks good, and that always earns a product extra points in our book. 

What the reviews say:

With almost 1,000 reviews, it's clear the fan heater has amassed a whole host of fans. 

Many shoppers used the phrase "small but mighty" to describe the product, often "surprised" by how quickly it managed to heat a room given its size.

Lots of people have been using it to heat their garages, annexes or loft rooms and have found it up "beautifully" up to the task.
