Also to know is, can a small heater heat up a room?

The Vornado, 12 1/4 inches high, took only about 35 minutes to raise the room temperature by 10 degrees, although the air that came out didn't feel all that hot.
Keeping this in consideration, where should a space heater be placed?
Proper placement of space heaters is critical. Heaters must be kept at least three feet away from anything that can burn, including papers, clothing and rugs. Locate space heaters out of high traffic areas and doorways where they may pose a tripping hazard. Plug space heaters directly into a wall outlet.

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.
