An optically transparent electrically heated convection heater for use as a space heater in homes, offices, shops. Typically, said convection heater consists of a transparent layer 1 upon which is deposited a layer of a transparent electrically conductive material 2 such as indium-tin-oxide, electrodes 3 and 3a are formed on opposite edges of the transparent electrically conductive layer 2 and electrical wires 4 and 4a are connected to the electrodes. The transparent electrically conductive layer 2 is sandwiched between layer 1 and another transparent layer 1a. The passage of an electrical current through the optically transparent conductive layer 2 causes it to be heated according to the Joule effect, thereby heating the transparent panels 1 and 1a and the surrounding air by convection.
