With the advent of technology, more emphasis is being laid on the safety features of the heaters. With Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heaters, safety is prioritized. This technology keeps security at the forefront before other features so that people can release their worries regarding their safety as they can rely on these PTC Heaters.
In this article, we will look at various options and study the pros and cons of each of them to see which one is the best.
What is a PTC Heater?
Before jumping off to the PTC heating device, let us first study what Positive Temperature Coefficient means. If a material manifests a positive temperature coefficient, it means that as the temperature increases, its resistance to current raises proportionately. Initially, the current through these devices will observe a sharp rise with the low resistance but then decrease to zero when the desired temperature is reached.
Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heaters are self-regulating heaters that run with open-loop without any external diagnostic controls. While traditional fixed-resistance heaters use wires and coils to generate heat, PTC heaters use conductive inks printed on flexible, thin, polymer-based substrates.
This small space heater is made with fire-retardant materials. It adopts premium PTC heating elements made of ceramic that do not consume oxygen and produce no flames or lights, creating a healthier and more comfortable environment. The ceramic heater has a self-regulating element and automatic overheating protection for added safety. It will automatically shut it off if the temperature exceeds the limit value and back to work once it gets to a safe temperature inside.

|This office space heater is smart; it can 45° auto oscillate for a broader range of heat when you touch the control button on the top.|
- Tremendous Safety Features
As already stated above, safety is the priority for these heaters. This is the most powerful technique to attract customers to buy this.
These heaters are preprogrammed to reach the desired heat level, which forbids them to overheat, and thus they last longer than other heaters.
- Low Operating Cost
These do not need trip protectors and hence automatically run on low costs, making one of the desired technologies for heating.
