    Good value for the price

    Customer review by Pynekone

    4.0 stars by Pynekone

    My husband and I have purchased 4 of these heaters over a period of about two years or so, and three of them are still going strong. One stopped working after the first year. We have found that these heaters heat smaller rooms better than large ones. On really cold days or nights, it's best to turn them on at least an hour before you want to enter the room. I really like the fact that it has an automatic tip over switch. It came in handy when one of our dogs decided to use our living room as a race track. It turned off automatically before the heater hit the ground. After using two of the heaters this past month on medium heat, we noticed that our heating bill increased by about $100. I'm not sure if this is attributable to the wattage use or the fact that it just seems a little colder out this year. Also, the heater in our master bedroom has tripped our circuit and shut itself off on at least two occasions when my husband has increased the temperature from medium to high heat. So I do like the safety features that these heaters have. I also like the fact that you can push the heater out of the way due to its relatively small size. Its portability is really convenient. It's a good value overall, and it has worked better than some of the oil-filled heaters that tend to be more expensive and that take much longer to heat. I am pleased with our purchases overall. It would be nice if it had a timer. If you keep it on overnight with the door shut, the room gets really hot.

    Customer review by onlineNYL

    4.0 stars by onlineNYL

    The size of the heater will discourage you. The price of it is exceptional because it goes for double and above at any other retailer. It is easiest to operate. It has a 3 prong plug so be prepared. The on and off switch is the only thing that shuts off the heater; that protective feature if tipped over works proficiently. If that happens in the process of carrying it tilted, position it and leave it be then turn it on and it should operate properly. You can position it against a wall unlike most other heaters that have to have a 3-foot radius of space. The heater adjusts automatically to the temperature in the room, but it is favorable to check and adjust the dial until you hear the click. It has a convenient (built into the body of the heater) handle to carry sufficiently. Keep the grate free from lint and debris using a dry lint-free cloth as preventative maintenance. The flow of the heat/air is located at the bottom so it flows to the floor. The room it is used for is over 17-feet by 21-feet (got tired of measuring) and is not well-insulated and the heater was turned on and dialed to highest and door closed and went downstairs grabbed a juice-box for toddler and returned and the room was uncomfortably warm; dialed down the heater until the click and toasty has been the experience ever since. Michigan on day/night 3 below, the heater does this room well. Continuous running of this heater does not cause any hinderance. My toddler got curious and passed it and said "hot" and never goes near it unlike the other heater. But I do not suggest that you stand in front of the heater even if you can stand the flow of heat. When running, the body of the heater does stay cool to the touch, but always carry it by the handle for safety purposes. Also when on, the noise is quiet and not bothersome.

    Best money I have ever spent!

    Customer review by ToastyintheFingerlakes

    5.0 stars by ToastyintheFingerlakes

    First thing I was GREATLY surprised and pleased by was how fast Walmart and FedEx shipped my order! YAY FOR WALMART! I received my package a full TWO DAYS EARLIER than the earliest expected received date! But now on to the review.. For those of you considering other heaters, DON'T!! This heater is hands down the best money I have ever spent! My fiance and I just moved into a 1000 sq ft trailer on private land that is heated ONLY by fuel oil. Between upstate NY fall and winters, the prices of fuel oil these days, and the fact that trailers are NOTORIOUS for not holding heat; this can be a very expensive bill. We were looking at supplementing with electric heaters to try and cut our bills a bit. We have the small Sunbeam heaters at work so we knew they heated well but ONLY in small spaces, so we were looking at having to buy multiples and spending almost the same amount of money as if we were to heat with fuel oil alone. I stumbled across this heater and decided to take a chance based on others reviews. I've had this heater for just over an hour and already our whole trailer is comfortably toasty! The money I saved on buying this one heater rather than multiple smaller heaters or using only fuel oil was well worth the chance I took. I am absolutely in love! If you are reading these reviews and wondering if it is worth the chance, TAKE IT! By all means, take it! You won't regret it!

    • A. Yes once you get the room at the temperature you like, turn the dial back until it clicks just like they tell you to do, and you will hear a slight clicking noise. Leave it set there and it will go on & off on its own to keep your room temp where you like it.

    • A. The one speed fan never turns off and the heating element never turns off. With PTC control features the heating element varies in temperature to control the room air at near the temperature you have selected with the dial. The dial control will set the heater in a 1500 watt mode on high or about half that when set in the low position.

    I am looking to find out if this is a "cool" touch heater, or if it will instantly burn you if you touch it. Clearly, you should never touch a heater, PERIOD! That said, I have two small children, two dogs, and two cats, and therefore am looking for something that should one of them touch it for a brief moment, they'll (hopefully) realize they should move, yet not have to be taken to the hospital. Thanks

    • A. The housing of this heater stays comfortable to the touch. I've left it on for several hours and when we were done with it unplugged it from the wall, pick it up and carried it to it's storage area. The heat blows out from the bottom of the unit and cool air is drawn in through the top. The top is where it's carry handle is located. I've touched the sides of the unit and they barely register a temperature change, all of the heating is done on the inside and bottom.

    • A. I am using the heater as I write this. The heater has no place on the outside, except the exhaust grille, that I cannot lay my hand and leave it indefinitely. Even at the exhaust grille you would notice it was hot befor it burned you. If a hand or foot was left against the grille for a period of a several seconds or more it's possible a burn might occur. With the heater running at it's highest temperature, just now, I turned the backside of my hand to the grille and could hold it there for 10 seconds with no burn, but if held longer burn would be possible.
