Radiant heaters transfer heat from a hot object (our heaters) to a cooler object (such as your feet) through space. Warmth is applied by the proximity of the heated object to the cooler object. Fireplaces are an example of radiant heating. Heated floors, wall panels, and heat lamps also use radiant heating.
Radiant heat is often able to warm specified areas more quickly than other forms of technology, using lower temperatures and less energy.

Convection is the transfer of heat using a liquid or gas – this includes hot water, hot oil, and hot air. Many space heaters use 'forced' convection as a fan blows hot air from the inside of the device to a specific area.
Conduction occurs when a hotter object makes physical contact with a cooler object. Some space heaters are safe to the touch and can rest against cold hands or feet to provide constant warmth. The following Cozy Products use heat conduction:
