If only looks were everything! This was my first leap to buy this type of heater. It is certainly a more attractive space heating option. The unit also stays cool to the touch. Sadly - that's where the appeal ends. I shopped around a lot before buying and read reviews on every unit I considered. This one rated high. I hope my review is helpful to others who are shopping around like I did. My older home has 9' ceilings and the intended room (a fairly small, centrally located, well-insulated family room) - while not "open concept" in the newer home sense - sits between an adjacent dining room and formal living room and has fairly large doorway openings at both ends. The main thermostat for the entire structure is located in that family room. My hope was to keep the room cozy and convince the whole-house furnace not to kick in as often. Well, the room was not cozy warm by any stretch and the unit did little to convince the thermostat to save me on my natural gas heating costs. In fact, using this unit was, alternately, a huge shock to my electric bill. I am a heat miser, mind you, and keep my heat low to save money as a rule. I had no delusion that this would supplant whole-house heat and keep my old New England home a constant, balmy temperature (especially after the killer we just experienced in the Northeast). The goal was to keep one room reasonably comfortable and offset other heating costs. Big miss. No matter what setting I ran the unit on, it still couldn't keep ahead of the wall thermostat enough to reap much in the way of savings. The "Eco" option was laughable. I'm convinced it was more expensive overall to run this heater when factoring in the spike in my electric bill. In the end, it was used as a direct supplimental heater to blow directly on me while in the room. It is not designed for this use - thus, it was not very effective at that, either. A cheap ceramic heater could have done that job better and for less. The final verdict? Costly space heater to buy and operate with very little payoff in heating bills and room comfort - in my particular application at least. It'll be tucked away in a guest room for next winter where I suspect it will sufficiently warm a more closed off space - albeit no better than a far less expensive alternative could. Very disappointed.Read More

I used this in a basement that doesn't have real heat going to it. The previous owner ran the hwbb pipes going to the main floor low so when the heat was turned up, it would act as a radiant source. With the pipes so high, the heat stays too high and my feet are always cold. This little heater fixed that and kept the entire 1,000 sq ft area very comfy when I needed it to be.Read More
