    Heater really works nice for my large bedroom and master bath area. (387 sq. ft.). I usually turn it on 70 or 72 degrees. Cycles on and off like a furnace. Heat is not as dry as natural gas heat. I turn my central heat to 63 degrees for the rest of the house and close the door to the bedroom where I use the infrared heater. My bedroom has a door leading to an outside deck and large glass windows. The central heat wouldn't heat that room properly and it was always much colder than the rest of the house. The infrared heater has solved my problem. Very pleased with it so far as I've only had it for 3 weeks. Don't know yet how it affects my utility bill as I haven't compared yet as this is new to me. Also love the remote control and can regulate the heat from my bed. I set the unit on top of my cedar chest as they say it works better if you have it elevated 2 or three feet above floor level. The wood exterior makes for a nice appearance and the small size of the unit makes it very practical.

    After doing much research on heaters that may do what I indeded to use it for, this was my final choice. Keep in mind however, this heater will heat up the area, but it will take time, it is not going to produce instant heat unless one stands right in front of it. It honestly needs time to do the job and it will. If you start with a cold room, the air as well as the walls plus other places need to heat up. Once the room heats up it gets nice and warm then and will then shut on and off all by it self. This is in a 35 foot 5th wheel RV with 3 slideouts. It heats the whole RV when it's needed. The cost of the Propane is just to expensive to use and this is really the answer. (Keep in mind that electric is needed to operate this heater). To really give this a jump start we also use The Big Buddy heater. Use it first and switch to this and never be cold in a room. I took 2 whole weeks to see if this is what I hoped it was and also to see if it would fit my needs. It did and will also maybe fit your needs. I know it works in a house also as we gave it a test in a friends house. They then bought one after that. Everyone is warm now.

    I use it to heat a 580 sq ft cottage in MA that is not well insulated. I have had trouble in the past maintaining comfortable heat. Dr heater was my answer. It distributes evenly throughout my home. It is far superior to the electric radiator and forced hot air methods I have used in the past. No more feeling drafts, no more fighting the battle betweeen being either too hot or too cold. And if I want to warm up from coming in from outside, I just sit in front the heater for a minute or two and the air it blows out warms me right up. It's easy to move around the room since it's on wheels and is small. It keeps my house at a constant 70 degrees with outside temps going down into the 30's so far. I am confident it will perform well when even when outside temps go down to the teens. I keep my bedroom door closed during the day and open up the door about 15 min before I go to bed. That's all it takes for the whole bedroom (including all the bedding) to warm up thouroughly after being unheated all day. I don't even have to move the heater into the bedroom. I also love that I can leave the front door open while bringing in groceries, etc., and even though lots of cold air rushes in from outside, the room goes right back to being perfectly warm after I shut the door. Excellent product.

    This heater is excellent, however, it has a problem. I wanted it for my family room and I was quick to find out that the signal from my TV remote conflicts with the Dr. Heater remote. My TV remote turns the heater on and changes other settings as well, which is not a good thing. The manufacturer is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. My 2 star rating would probably go to a 4 or 5 star when the remote conflict gets resolved. I had to return my heater because of this and look for something else. If you don't have a remote situation at your house then this heater would be a great buy. The remote turns the heater on or off, raises and lowers the thermostat setting, and can set the shutoff timer to 1, 2, or 3 hours. It is small and compact and fits in small places. The cabinet is wood and it looks great.

    I ordered this Dr. Heater a couple weeks ago at Walmart.com. It is everything I expected it to be. It heats my 14x23 livingroom, and 14x21 kitchen. I set it at 67 and it stays at that temp. It also has a programable thermostat, and shuts off when it reaches the set temp. I haven't had it long enough to tell wheather it saves on electric, but I know it will compaired to that old 220 volt furnace that comes on every 20 min or so. I'll update this when I get my elec. bill. Thanks walmart.

    This heater heats an entire room and the heat comes on quickly and is efficient. Our utility bills are 1/3 less than the same month last year. We attribute this to buying three infrared heaters and placing them in the three rooms that we use the most. We have now turned off our central heat, as it is just too expensive to run (luckily, we live in a southern state where this is possible). We also are going to window units in strategic rooms in the summer (and turning off our central A/C). If we could afford solar panels, we would also go there. We are waiting for Walmart to offer the first affordable solar panel energy units. Best of luck...

    I purchased this same heater from the manufacturer two years ago. It does not heat multiple rooms as the manufacturer advertises. This heater couldn't keep one room warm without running constantly. The money I saved on my gas bill was spent on my electric bill by keeping this unit running continuosly. Direct from the manufacturer, I paid just over $200. Walmart's price is much better. I have a small 1500 watt ceramic heater that I paid $30 for. The $30 heater works better than this infrared heater.
