No matter how high we ramp up the thermostat to heat our home, or how many layers we wear, the chill still seeps in.

With most people working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, it is more important than ever to make the home office comfortable - and that means cosy and warm.

Shoppers have been frantically buying portable heaters to add extra warmth to a home office, the conservatory, camper van or wherever they may be working.

One high on many people’s shopping lists is John Lewis & Partners Square Fan Heater.

Why we rate it

The Square Fan Heater is a compact, streamlined and powerful portable heater, which will not take over a room - no matter how small the space.

The heater features overheating protection, so it cuts off to prevent any danger.

It also has a tip-over switch feature, which means if the heater is knocked over it will turn off automatically for your safety.

This heater has an integrated dual filter, which can be detached to clean any dust that has built up.

It also has two speed settings, low and high, as well as an oscillating setting, to help warm up a room, rather than blast one area with heat.

Plus, it boasts an ergonomic handle on the top to make it easy to transport to wherever you need a blast of heat.

What the reviews say

The Square Fan Heater has received an average review rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars, here’s what shoppers have to say:

  • “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.”

  • “Neat efficient fan heater. Can be on static or rotating mode.”

  • “Bought this to heat my summerhouse so I can use it on chilly days. Perfect for the job, neat but gives out a good heat.”

  • “I needed a little heater that I can move, if I want to, from room to room. This looks good. Works perfectly. It turns off automatically if picked up or for some reason falls over.”

  • “Perfect for my husband to use in the study during lockdown, saves heating the whole house. Small and compact takes up very little space.”
