Stadler Form Anna Heater Review {Giveaway Soon!}

Keeping the kids room or baby nursery warm in a cold climate through the winter can be tricky. Especially in our case with broken central heat! At this time we depend on space heaters to heat the house and it is actually working out well, it happens to be more energy efficient than our old electric furnace. We recently received the Swiss designed Anna heater from Stadler Form to try and we are very pleased with it. 

First, let me emphasize that a space heater can be dangerous in certain situations. It's not really the best idea in a room with very active toddlers. It would work well for nighttime in a baby nursery where the baby doesn't have access to it or in a room with older children who understand not to play with it. Heaters should always be placed in an unobstructed area with open space all around and never covered, of course - use common sense. 

We like that the Anna heater is so unobtrusive, it doesn't attract attention to itself and Baby T only happened to be interested in it when we were taking these photos, otherwise he doesn't even notice it. This is one of he safest options around kids because it has automatic shut-off when tilted and it will not overheat because of the self-regulating ceramic heating element. The front grid gets very warm, but not so hot that you could burn yourself when touching it. So it's one of those things that Baby T will touch once or twice and never again.

For me, the controls were a little tricky because you can't tell which setting it is on without turning the dial back and forth first to see if it is on cold or hot. I do like that it has two setting where you can either have both heating elements on or just the lower one for less heat (which would work like the Little Anna heater we're giving away tonight). It heats very efficiently, I often find myself turning it off altogether because it makes our bedrooms upstairs very toasty. I usually put it on the lowest setting and it keeps a comfortable temperature, unless it dips several degrees below zero outside - then I turn it up a little and it keeps up very well with the cold throughout the night. 

The Stadler Form Anna heater retails for $99.99 and Little Anna is $79.99. The sleek, modern design fits well in any decor, it is very energy efficient and takes up little space. If you're looking for something with more style, check out the fun retro-inspired Max heater that comes in red, yellow, and white colors. Stadler Form also has a great selection of humidifiers, fans, air purifiers, and even aroma diffusers.
