An electric fan heater contains a motor that blows hot air into the room. Describe the changes in the energy stores of the heater.

Ive been sitting here for half hour trying to understand it i dont know whether its asking for useful and wasted energy or not?

Energy stores are things like kinetic, potential, thermal, electric, chemical etc. Which of these are involved here, and how is energy transferred between them?

Electric, thermal and kinetic?. Electric because of the movement of the fan, then thermal because of the heat being generated by the fan, then kinetic because of the sound also being made?

Yes, those are the three stores involved, but the explanation needs a bit more work. The fan heater has two main components: an electric heater which heats the air, and an electric fan, which moves the air over the heater. Think about energy input and output for each component.
