Space heaters certainly come in handy in many situations, especially during these cold winter months, but they're also not the most convenient to use. For example, unless you've got one that comes with a remote control, it can be a pain to turn on/off or adjust the settings.
But winter is coming, and unless you live or work in a place with central heating, space heaters are your only option. Or are they?
The best smart home devices are the best devices to invest in right now, and lucky for you (and your cold hands and toes), smart heaters are an actual thing. Smart heaters are space heaters that work with voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant so you can stay toasty without getting out of bed or lifting a finger. You can turn them on or off, adjust their target temperatures, and even toggle their swivel function with voice commands or via their respective apps.
What's more, they're typically very affordable, which makes them the perfect gift that keep on giving this holiday season.
I've got the Dreo Wall-Mounted Smart Heater in my apartment, which also solves the space problem, and it's currently 18% off at Dreo. But if you'd rather have one you can put away in the summer, something like the GoveeLife Smart Space Heater Pro or the GoveeLife Smart Space Heater Max is $40 off at Govee.
Forget space heaters. Take a look at these deals on smart heaters, leftover from Black Friday, and give the gift of warmth this Christmas.
