I really like the Holmes HQH307 heater. I went through several other heaters over a three year period before settling on this one. I’ve used two different ceramic heaters, one was a low cube and one was a tower. Neither one of those put out as much heat as I wanted yet they consumed a lot of electricity. Then I tried a parabolic heater. It was much more efficient, but the beam of heat was too narrow. It would heat a portion of my body too much and the rest not enough. I’ve had my HQH307 for about two months which is long enough to verify that it doesn’t cost as much to use as the ceramic heaters I’ve tried, yet it puts out a lot more heat. I’ve never even had to use the high setting. I like the fact that on low, both heating elements are still on. Some quarts heaters just use one element on low. The internal fan is fairly powerful, although somewhat loud. It pulls air in from the top and pushes it out the front which really helps to heat a room. The heating elements rattle a bit during the first few seconds of warming up, but that is standard on quarts heaters. The rattle goes away almost immediately. The lifting handle molded into the back of the case is in a good location and stays cool. Don’t mistake the bar across the front for a handle because it gets HOT!! It’s just there to keep the front of the heater off the floor in case of a tip-over.
