Can a space heater heat a whole room?
Consequently, can a space heater heat a room?
Space heaters heat only the area where they're placed. You put one in the room you're currently using and it heats that room, usually through convection (or circulation–the same way HVAC heats). You could even use a radiant heater to heat only the area directly in front of the heater.
Secondly, is it cheaper to run the heat or a space heater? The Energy Department estimates that the cost to heat an entire home with electric space heaters cost 43% more than a gas furnace. Using a space heater in your bedroom only while you sleep is a practical way to use a space heater and won't make much of a dent in your electricity bill.
Also question is, which space heater puts out the most heat?

Can you leave a space heater on all night?
Even if your heater has safety features that are advertised to prevent unsafe operating conditions, you should still avoid running your heater when you sleep. Some will tell you that as long as you can be careful and keep things away from your space heater, then it's safe to leave them on all night.
