This Mainstays space heater works wonderful, it is small and compact but powerful. It warmed up a medium size room fast and the remote control makes it hassle free. Love the fact that it has time controls so you can set it and it will automatically shut off. Great heater.

Mainstays 4 Element Infrared Quartz Space 1500
Got this heater from a neighbor last night. Set it up and read the directions and the heater worked just the way the manual stated. This heater has 2 modes, one is for ordinary heat or low and the other is for high heat for being cold. On low setting the same setting will only allow the heater to go so high before cutting off. On the high setting the heater can go on to heat the room to be as high as 85 degrees. It also has a remote control that makes things easier.
First, loved the casters for easy movement, and the handle in back. It's easy to move around and pick up to put it in another room if needed. Great remote control with a spot for the remote on the unit, helpful, because remotes get lost easily. Next, it heated up almost instantly, very impressive. My purpose for this was to heat only a small room I'm in (living room) rather than heat my whole place. My heating unit is rather old and it heats the back room too much and the living room not enough. I don't like wasting all that heat, so thought I'd try this portable for the living room and it works great for that. And I'm not paying to overheat the back which I'm not using. And, the case of the heater isn't hot. I originally set it on carpet and kept check. I couldn't find any reference to using it on carpet but it seemed fine, nothing hot. The heat comes from the upper half which is wonderful, don't have to worry so much. There is one drawback for me. Because I'm in a small space, all of the electrical outlets are low and there are only 4 in the room. Most are covered by things so I use strips. You need to plug this unit directly into the wall socket and not a strip or extension cord. I have to move things to be able to plug this directly into the wall. I don't know if it's possible on a heating unit, but I would have liked a longer cord because of this. Other than that dream, it works great and quickly.
Very Toasty Heater
I really like the design of this heater. First looking at it you can't tell its a heater. The heater sits on wheels so its very easy to move around. It's perfect for our bedroom which gets very drafty. Bedroom is 16x15. After setting the temperature it doesn't take long for you to feel the difference in the room temperature. Soon as the room reaches it the temperature you request it automatically shuts off. Once the temperature drops it automatically turns back on. If it gets too warm before your selected temperatureyou can use the remote to shut it off. Really easy to use and gets the job done.
Great space heater
I received this product free for my honest review. I wanted to get this product to use for heating one room at a time instead of whole house, just to save a little bit of $$. Running my whole house heat seems wasteful when I'm not in all of the rooms at the same time. I shut the vents but, it still heats instead of where I may be at the time. I got this for my living room and my bedroom. It's practically perfect. It isn't heavy, it is on rolling wheels to move easily from my living room to the bedroom. Makes for a quick transition.
It is quartz which allows for even heat distribution and is probably the most economic. It has two settings and a controllable thermostat. There is also a remote so you don't have to be sitting by it to make any changes or turn it on. There is a little storage pocket on the heater to store the remote so you don't lose it.
It has a power-saving mode and also shuts off automatically if you forget to turn it off when leaving. It also has a 9 hour timer, which is really nice. There is a heat setting and a fan setting. Pretty neat. It also has a small footprint, so it doesn't take up a lot of space. Always keeping it away from anything combustable just because but, it does have an exterior that stays cool, makes it safer for stuff being near it or fingers that may want to touch it.
I would recommend this heater due to it's ease of use. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to program it or use the remote.
Heater that provides complete safety while heating
One thing i enjoyed about this space heater was how it heated up so quickly. I could feel the heat at least three feet away. Very easy to operate and it provided good heat for any area of my house. I also liked the protection and safety it provides when heating my home. The built in timer that prevents it from over heating and i have the choice of setting the timer for how long I want an area to be heated and then it automatically shuts off. Then there's the remote that comes with it that gives you more control in using this heater, very convenient. I liked that it provided a slot in back of the cabinet to store the remote in. This way I wouldn't misplace it. Now to top it off it has casters that makes it easy to transfer the heater from one area to another area. Mostly I love the wood cabinet that stays cool on the exterior even when the heater is on. I also likes that it offers power saving operations (ECO).
Hot little heater!
The Mainstays 4 element 1500 Watt space heater is a good looking and very functional unit. Its' black color blends with most any room and the controls are all push button on the top of the heater and it also comes with a remote control to operate unit from your easy chair. Very easy to use and puts out a lot of heat for its' size plus it is on wheels for moving from room to room or different directions. It has a readout of H2 for high heat, H1 for low, ECO for saving energy, and a fan only setting with no heat. It has a timer setting for shutting down anywhere from one hour, up to nine hours in case you just need heat for specific periods of time. Temperature setting is between 85 degrees Fahrenheit down to 60 degrees, which means it will shut down when desired temperature is reached and start up again when it drops below your desired temperature setting.
I could not see or find in the literature that it comes with a filter for incoming air and it appears the front of unit is where it gets its' air so with other units I have ended up with plugged up air filters and this one seems to be free of that problem. Hooray!
Very happy with this space heater.
Fine little space heater
When I received this unit, I thought, (Wow) this thing sure is light weight. It won't heat anything. But man was I wrong. It is very light for it's size. I read all the directions. It seems so high tech so at 72 years old, I thought I could never learn how to use it properly. I was wrong. The directions are clear and easy to follow. I figured it out pretty quickly and had it up and running in no time. My other thought was that this couldn't put out much heat. I was very wrong again. This thing puts out a tremendous amount of heat. It seems to distribute the heat in a way that it spreads around the room in equal amounts. I like being able to set the thermostat to the proper temperatures and it monitors the room temperature as well so that it doesn't run unnecessarily like other space heaters I've owned have or do. It has a hand held remote as well so you don't have to even get out of your easy chair to adjust as you would like. You can run it on high, low and or economy settings. This makes it much nicer that many other space heaters. I wish that the fan was a little stronger, but that's just me. It works well and I do recommend it. Perhaps this review will help someone make a purchase decision.
Nice compact space heater for cold winter nights
This item arrived just in time for the winter. Upon opening the box and handling the heater, the first thing I noticed was it's very light. It was so light that it almost slipped out of my hand while opening the box. The construction is made of plastic and felt a little light and made me wonder how it would perform. There is a control panel on top. There are 4 wheels on the bottom of this heater so it's very easy to move it around. There's also a remote control that comes with it. Once plugged in, the functions are pretty straightforward. You press the mode button and cycle through the heat mode: H2 (high), H1 (low), Eco. You can set the desired temperature (85 degree is highest). If you set it at Eco, it will just keep heat on around 72 deg. Also, there's a timer which you can select by increment of 1 hr. This is very convenient for us when going to sleep. We set it for couple of hours and it turns off on its own.
Besides the slightly "plastic" feel of the heater, I am very pleased with the item. I would recommend it to a friend.
Great Little Heater for a Room or Office
This is a great little heater. It supplies a surprising amount of heat to have such a small footprint.
The four Infrared elements do a fantastic job of heating a small room and maintaining it at a nice warm temperature while not requiring a great deal of power. Living in Central Florida I don't have occasion to require heat all that often, but we do have our cold snaps from time to time. In my case the Mainstays 4 Element heater is the perfect option when compared to firing up the Central Heat. In my case there is seldom a need to spend the money to heat the entire house, when most of us are in the living room watching TV, and this little guy is just perfect for that. The fact that it is compact, light and portable makes it perfect for heating up the bathroom on cold mornings. It comes with lots of great features a two speed fan to distribute the heat, an ECO mode to save money on your power bill and built-in over heating protection. It even comes with a remote control.
While it won't heat your entire house, it can't be beat for a personal heater for your room or office.
