Heaters?

Hey all x
I need a heater for my cockateil, just to keep in the room seeing as the weather is getting colder x but I heard that heaters omit fumes that are dangerous to birds (similar to those of non stick cookware). Do any of you use heaters? Or do you know a brand that's safe? x

I have tubular heaters in my bird room, I am unsure what brand though. Most DIY stores sell them

You could always contact a few companies to see if their heaters are safe Thats what I always do with products that could be made with teflon.

I have a Holmes Air brand heater and all of their heaters are safe but its a canadian company so I dont know if they have any where you are ( if your not in canada lol).

A heat lamp as for reptiles should be safe as long as its a bit away from the cage.
