- What is the optimum temperature for productivity? Science says that somewhere between 71 and 77 degrees is the sweet spot, depending on the type of work and the particular workers.
- How do you stay warm in a cold office? Airdog is a portable desktop fan heater that will keep you at the perfect temperature.
Setting the right temperature for everyone in a shared environment is an almost impossible task. While some people are perspiring at their desks, others are wearing mittens — even though the thermometer reads the same for both parties.
If you struggle with the conditions at work or just want a little extra heat at home, Airdog might be the solution. This compact fan heater lets you create the perfect microclimate, with enough power to heat large spaces. It also works perfectly in summer, providing a fresh breeze to cool you down.
What is a PTC heater?
Back in the day, all fan heaters used resistance wires to generate heat. The problem with using these wires is that they can overheat, and they are very inefficient.
Positive Temperature Coefficient technology, or PTC, replaces those wires with ceramic stones or chips. The stones are far better at maintaining a safe temperature, and they last much longer than resistance wires. Furthermore, they are better at transferring heat to the air — a pretty important feature for a heater.

Airdog takes advantage of PTC technology to deliver near-instant heat wherever you need it. The 950W heater takes just two seconds to hit full power, and it blasts warm air through a wide arc. It’s surprisingly quiet, too.
You can easily adjust the fan speed at the touch of a button, with three settings to choose from. In summer, the same fan sends a cool breeze streaming across your desk.
Airdog is also packed with safety features to ensure that heat doesn’t turn into fire. The device automatically cuts off to prevent overheating, and the same happens if Airdog ever falls over. Just to be on the safe side, the outer case is made from fire-resistant plastic.
The most impressive thing? Airdog packs all these features into a really small footprint. This heater takes up an area of less than 6 x 6 inches on your desktop or nightstand. You can literally place it anywhere.
Weighing in at just three pounds, Airdog is also very easy to move around. It even has a built-in leather carry handle to make the task easier.
“This elegant yet powerful device works as both a cooling fan and heater for your personal thermal comfort, which will help you through the whole year without worrying about buying another gadget due to the season change. ” — Airdog on IndieGoGo
What we like
When you need a quick blast of heat, Airdog delivers. This thing is easy to move and quick to start pumping warm air around the room.
Grid power only
The only place you can’t use Airdog is anywhere without a wall socket. But as an indoor product, that’s unlikely to cause many problems.
