This is achieved through a new patented parabolic reflector technology that increases productivity without increasing power consumption costs. Already 5 seconds after switching on, the fireplace starts to warm up the users. The short-wave rays of the heater are capable of serving as the main source of heating on an area of up to 15 m². The model is on sale in two colors: white and cast iron black. Case dimensions are 455x130x90 mm. The manufacturer recommends placing it at a height of 2-2.3 m.
The advantage of this heater is the body tightness. The filament of the halogen lamp and the electrical wiring inside are reliably sealed against moisture. The waterproof grade is IPX5.

The Korean manufacturer Hyundai offers a halogen model with a heating element power of 1500 W, which instantly goes into operation. It is equipped with one lamp, the radiation intensity of which is regulated by a rotary switch. It is protected from the outside by a steel grill to prevent the impact of the ball and other large objects. Around the halogen heating element there is a reflector with inclined walls, which ensures the distribution of short-wave beams in different directions. The dimensions of the case are 605x190x90 mm. With additional heating, the device is enough for an area of up to 25 m². If the heater is used as the main source of heat, then it is suitable for rooms no more than 12 m². Optionally, it can be mounted on a tripod in a vertical position, but such an element must be purchased separately.
Our experts noted in the product the ability to adjust the angle of inclination. The brackets supplied with the heater are made of soft metal and can be bent at an angle of 45-130 degrees. This allows the halogen lamp to be directed more accurately at users. Such functionality is beneficial for premises where visitors can move – for example, a cafe or an auditorium.

- there are brackets for ceiling or wall mounting;
- instant exit to operating mode;
- power adjustment on the side.

- shines brightly at night, which prevents some from sleeping;
- the 9cm thick body looks bulky on the ceiling.
And here is the floor halogen model, produced by the manufacturer since 2010. The fact that it still exists on sale speaks of its popularity with buyers. The heater has a vertical design with a handle. Inside the housing there are three halogen lamps, one above the other. The structure is placed on a stable base and can be rotated independently of it. Although this is unlikely to provide a significant advantage, since the weight of 1.3 kg makes it easy to deploy the entire fireplace. The heater operates in three modes: 400, 800 and 1200 W. There are buttons at the top for switching. The small grill in the front prevents not only large objects from getting onto the heating elements, but also small debris. Judging by customer reviews, the heater actively distributes heat over the entire height of the room, although it is itself located at the lowest point.
Among the benefits of a halogen fireplace is built-in fall protection. If you accidentally hook it with your foot, then the contact plate inside opens and the lamp turns off instantly. It is practical for those who have small children or pets (cats, dogs, rabbits) in the house.
- compact design;
- three operating modes;
- stable base;
- increased fire safety.
- not everywhere you can buy;
- only in gray body color;
- it is difficult to find a replacement lamp.
This vertical halogen model stands out for its solid appearance with dimensions of 750x265x190 mm. It is located on a swivel base that allows it to be rotated up to 180 degrees. Considering the size and weight of the heater, 3.2 kg is no longer a marketing ploy, but a real advantage. The device operates in the 600-1200 W power range, adjustable by the switch at the top. When it falls, the spiral turns off immediately, protecting the room from fire. In the reviews, buyers praise the halogen heating element for its reliability and unlimited service life. Due to the presence of the filament in the glass tube, there is no combustion of oxygen and dust.
Experts considered the heater to be the best because of the new technology for creating a halogen lamp. It has a carbon fiber inside instead of a metal one. This results in increased efficiency: 800 watts of carbon filament heating is equivalent to 1800 watts of heating from an oil heater. Thanks to this technology, the fireplace is suitable for heating up to an area of 30 m². Attractive appearance allows you to use the device not only at home, but also on outdoor cafes.
- two modes of operation;
- power control function;
- shutdown in case of overheating and rollover;
- the ability to rotate the body separately from the base by 180 degrees.

Ballu BHH / M-09N
Rounding out the review is a two-lamp halogen heater from a Dutch manufacturer. The total power is 800W, but if necessary, it can be reduced to 400W by pressing one of the toggle switches. The front panel with glass bulbs is reliably protected by a fine steel mesh. The device is designed to heat an area of up to 8 m². Its operating principle implements the O2 Safety Fystem technology, so it does not burn oxygen. The manufacturer has endowed the model with overheating protection, which will not allow the heating element to melt. Users in the reviews like the quiet operation and the absence of air convection, which does not raise dust. But some complain about the bright glow at night, which is important for people with sensitive sleep.
Experts considered the halogen model to be the best in terms of compactness. Its dimensions are 305x370x136 mm. The design is characterized by rigor and minimalism. With these advantages in mind, we recommend this product for additional heating in the office. It is convenient to place the fireplace under the table or next to the chair to sit warm all day. It will perfectly fit into a business interior. But due to the weight of 1 kg, the heater is also suitable for manual transportation when visiting a summer cottage.
