Indoor Electric Heater

Electric heating is a process in which electrical energy is converted to heat energy. An electric heater is an electrical device that converts an electric current into heat. The heating element inside every electric heater is an electrical resistor, and works on the principle of joule heating: an electric current passing through a resistor will convert that electrical energy into heat energy. Most modern electric heating devices use Ni-chrome wire as the active element; the heating element, depicted on the right, uses Ni-chrome wire supported by ceramic insulators. A warning that these can go to very high temperatures and create excruciating burns
