This arrived quickly, and was a lil bigger than what I thought it would be, but beautifully made :-) Remote had a tab to remove and was ready to go (after reading manual). Don't know much about infrared heat, but it sure warms the rooms up nicely.
Since we are renting a house with no central air/heat, this is just what we needed. It's been getting down to the low 40's at night, so I have an electric fireplace downstairs, and my daughter is using this Honeywell Infrared upstairs. It heats up quickly, and kept her room, and hallway (door open), a very comfortable 68 degrees all night. There are 2 different heat modes and we are using the Energy Smart to help save on utilities. The other mode is Constant Heat, and labeled L1 for low using 1000 watts, and L2 for high using 1500 watts. It also uses 120 volts and draws 12.5 amps. The temperature can be set from 60-85 degrees, and automatic shutoff timer can be set for 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours. When I tried the remote, it would only work from 2-12 ft from front of heater, so try to put that couch, chair, or bed close by :-) The manual also says to put this 3 ft away from walls, furniture, or anything that could set on fire, and not to put on deep carpets. It only weighs about 20 lbs, but for us weaklings, there are 4 caster wheels, and a cool touch handle to help move, from room to room. This heater has overheat protection, and in case it tips over, on any side, it will shut off automatically. It may be a lil pricey, but for the size of this machine, the good heat coverage/protection, and 3 year limited warranty, I would definitely recommend this. Maybe we'll even get our rent lowered, by helping to save our landlady 25 percent every month on utilities, (included in our rent :-)
