The Lifesmart heater is everything I hoped it would be. It is so quiet compared to other heaters I have had in the past. I love it. I hope it helps on the utility bill.

I purchased this heater because the heating system in my apartment was inadequate. It arrived within a week. I plugged it in around 5:30pm, added another space heater to help it get started. Before I went to bed I turned off the other space heater and turned this one to 71 degrees. This morning I woke up and couldn't believe it when I walked out and my apartment was WARM. The unit is quiet to run. It's smaller than it looks in the picture. I just bought one for my kids in Oregon and would reccomend this heater to anyone who is looking for a good heat source. My apartment is 1,100 square feet with 2 bedrooms. Lovin it!!!!

This is great infared heater it will heat a small room 400 to 800 sq ft. depend on insulation , bought it specifically for power outage and works great , any larger generator i.e. 4000 watts or more does great job ,i will buy one more for another room.

I picked up this product on the 14th. of Jan. I took it home, and used it for approx. four hours. When I went to bed the heater seemed to be performing quite well. The thermostat seemed to be working just fine, and it was taking the chill out of the house. The next morning, in the early hours, I awoke and turned the heater on. It ran for about thirty minutes, and it tripped the circuit breaker in the house. That same morning I packed the item up and returned it to Walmart. Several years ago I had purchased a couple of cheap space heaters at Home Depot, and while they didn't put out The good heat like this one did, I was able to use them for about two years, and never once did they trip the circuit breaker in my house. That was my comparison, and the reason I returned the item. I have not replaced it as of yet, I don't know if I will. I'm a little gun-shy right now.

We purchased this heater to aid our furnace and to knock the chill off of a room on really cold days. We love it! The remote makes it nice too, no getting up to adjust temperature or turn it on and off! Great heater and nice looking too!

I have had this heater for a few weeks I really do not believe that it would heat the area that it says, but I do have other portable heaters which help this one along and I have found that if you do have other portable heaters the run time is cut way down. Some of these I have read and they say they like the energy saving type mode, me myself I would just assume use the thermostat with another heater because this energy type mode that they provide stays running at 68 degrees and on thermostat mode it does shut off so in my opinion using the thermostat mode is less costly. If you do have a large house or expect to move this one around you really want to get enough of these or get some lighter heaters this one is bulky to move around even if it does come with wheels it is hard to move something of it's size and how many of you have a place where you can move it around without having to unplug it or if you do have carpet it does not roll that easy. Now it is great for around pets and children it does not tip and I would recommend this heater around areas that have earthquakes such as California because like I said it does not tip over it might if you have a huge earthquake, but I do not think so. Just remember it's best to have another heater along with this one or any other portable type heater to keep it from working to hard and it would be less costly in the long wrong because these heaters will keep running if you do not have another heater to go along with it. Not only that it is a little to heavy to keep moving around so get 2 one for each room and buy a cheaper style heater or buy a couple more of these if you can afford them they are fairly quiet next to the smaller type heaters that you are accustomed to. The main idea is to stay warm the cheapest way possible where you live and if you only have one portable heater it will keep running just remember that if it's cold it's cold so get two per room this way you do not have to keep moving them around and taking the chance of breaking them because you will bump them on things it's only natural regardless the size of the heater and you want to keep them in the same place. That is only my opinion you are on your own I have had several portable heaters and would rather have them kept in one spot if I can. Also be aware they may blow your circuit breakers these I am not for sure about, but make sure you turn them down when using a microwave in the same room or something of it's category, regardless if it is this heater or not. If you do buy you any portable heater it is best if you are able to adjust the temp. by seeing what temp. you can set it by not just by some dial that you can not read and get yourself a thermometer so you can see for yourself as well.
