Plug in radiators for garden rooms

Sorry, apologies in advance for the really boring topic! I have a garden office that until recently was only used sporadically so heating wasn't an issue. We have a plug in heater set to 16 degrees and that seemed fine.

Now I am working out there full time and am having difficulties. There is no issue with the radiator heating the room, it works really well, it's more the sort of heat it produces. I'm not sure of the correct name for this type of heater but it's just like the one in this photo. It produces a dry kind of heat, like a car heater, and makes me feel quite headachey. This results in my turning it off and today was freezing!

Any suggestions as to what alternative would be better? It needs to plug in and ideally be programmable. Does anyone else have a separate office and how do you manage? Thanks.

heat is heat is heat.

if you want dampness as well as heat, you could buy a calor gas stove. One of the combustion products is water. Won't meet your other requirements though.

is something else causing the headache? Dodgy gas appliance somewhere?

I disagree about heat heat heat. I hate central heating, makes me feel headachey and stuffy but the heat from a wood burner or open fire is lovely.

What about an oil filled radiator?
