I have a bi-level house in Michigan. The lower level is much cooler than the upper level, which is awesome except we're trying to move my 1-year old son to his own room down there but it's much colder than what we would like. We'll keep the upstairs at ~75F, but his room won't get higher about 67F. This is even with shutting off all of the vents downstairs. We'd really like to get it to at least 70 or even 72.
We would like to use a space heater to keep the room at a warmer temp. The room is on the small to medium in size so it seems like a space heater would be more than adequate.
Is there something out there that:
Has a set-it-and-forget-it thermostat with a temperature reading - i.e., we set it to say 72 and it runs and turns on when it needs to
Is as child and pet safe as it can be - I realize it's not going to be cool to the touch but at least have a killswitch if it gets knocked over and whatever is safe in general
- If it was wall-mountable it would be even better
Or, in general what type of heater am I even looking for? I don't necessarily want to heat a specific point, but raise the temp of the whole room. There seem to be a variety of types and it's unclear which would be best.
