Usually in Asian countries they don’t face winters that much or in other words not that serious (like people in western countries do), so in Asian countries especially in India and Pakistan heaters are rarely used and yes good quality Ceiling fans are something which everyone knows and the significance of fans cannot be tolerated.
There are certain regions in Pakistan as well where heaters are used more as compared to other areas of Pakistan. But like every other things heaters have pros and cons both, humidity problems they used heaters system which can make their homes warm and comfortable excessive use of it won’t destroy the overall health of a person, but it certainly makes the skin scaly and dry (and when we say skin it means skin of overall body) especially areas like nose, ears around eyes and neck excessive itching and irritation can be faced as a result of unusual use of heaters. In addition to this if one thinks the air inside the house or room is too dry, a suitable humidification system can make the home more confortable.
Point number two (which is considered as the most important point), it’s ok to keep the heater on whole night but it is recommended not to suffocate the room completely (at least open a slight space in the window) in order to maintain the balance between the heat, dryness and humidity. Or the best way is to put the timer on and let the heater control itself, otherwise it’s fatal to compress the complete room without a single narrow, tiny vent as it will suffocate things eventually.
A reasonable and cheap kind of heater is the portable electric heater what you need; halogen heater and oil fired radiators are the finest and the cheapest ones whereas bar fires and fan heaters are more expensive. Actually the higher the power required the higher the price will be. After turning the heater on this is true, that it makes one sleep faster than under normal temperature. Folks! Let me remind all these scenarios work best in chilly climate.
Last but not the least in moderate chilly regions one can turn on the ceiling fan as well while the heater is on! In order to tackle the decompression of air and avoid suffocation and as per medical sciences one must sleep in a bit chilly environment (it doesn’t apply to all the cold regions out there). But most of the regions fall under this category. So everyone out there tries to use the heater in a moderate way and don’t just fall asleep without caring the bed and yourself. There are some circumstances under which clients have faced some headaches due to heater and the gas involved in heater, so it could be that the radiant heater is damaged or malfunctioned and emitting more than normal carbon monoxide fumes. Which can severely cause headache. Beware of it.
