There's no doubt we're all feeling the chill as temperatures across the UK have plummeted this week.

The cost of living crisis means that while in recent years we may of just whacked on the heating, this year, due to skyrocketing energy bills, we're all looking for alternative ways to heat our homes.

If wearing three jumpers just isn't cutting it, you may want to think about purchasing a portable heater to help make your home more comfortable.

While prices vary, there are some great affordable options out there. John Lewis & Partners Square Fan Heater is £30, and has proved so popular with shoppers it has just had to be restocked.

Why we rate it

The fan heater is a slim 10.3cm, so ideal for moving around, whether you need some extra warmth while working at home or keeping you warm in bed. It also features an ergonomic top handle that allows you to easily lift and carry it from room to room.

It features two speed settings (low and high) and also comes with an overheating protection function to ensure safety.

At just £30 it's John Lewis' most affordable heater and while it may be budget-friendly, that doesn't mean it doesn't get impressive results, as it has racked up over 100 five-star reviews.

What the reviews say

The Square Fan Heater has received an average review rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars, with shoppers saying its excellent value and quality.

  • "Small and portable fan heater, ideal under the present climate of increasing energy prices. Added 2 year guarantee by John Lewis for peace of mind. Worthy investment."

  • “This heater is head and shoulders better than other portable electric heaters that I've invested in over the years. It can heat the entire reasonable-sized living room or kitchen within minutes.”

  • "I bought this heater as a recommendation from my friend… And I'm so glad I did. It heats a very cold room quite quickly and is also very economical. Couldn't be happier with it and would recommend without question. Also, it looks very stylish as well."

  • "I bought two of these little heaters to boost room temperature and rely less on gas central heating. They are sturdy, look great and are easy to operate. They can heat up a small room in minutes. I'm hoping to clock up some good savings during the winter months."

  • "Perfect for when you don't want to turn on the entire central heating system. Very portable, and more than adequate even on a low setting. The safety button underneath ensures it cuts out if lifted or knocked over. Such a great little heater that I've ordered a second one."
