This is a great PTC heater for the price. We bought it for our unfinished basement that our kids play in to keep the temperature up. It's simple to operate and it works great for distributing heat through the entire basement. It was smaller than I expected, but still puts out enough heat for a large area.
The price is right over some of the higher priced heaters. It has many gadgets to control the heat range. Am very happy with it.
it's a good value although it could be cheaper. and it only works with a timer. so it shuts off automatically. I don't like having to reset it throughout the day.
I have a few of the name brand expensive types of these heaters, and in my opinion, this one performs much better, for half the price. I will be purchasing another one soon! It is good for heating a small bedroom.
Well after having the PTC 100 for 3 or so weeks, this one went on Rollback to $99 with free shipping (man that is AWESOME WalMart, THANKS!) and this model has the remote and I was so happy with the performance of the PTC 100 I decided to get this model. I can say I LOVE the remote option, why not make them all with remotes? Clean, slick black cabinet this heater looks very modern, great LCD display also. Love the timer option, set the temp you want, how many hours then walk away. The fan is super quiet and does project a good distance and does what I want it too, supplement the living room heat, it does a GREAT job at that. Have not had my first electric bill yet so I can not comment on the power savings claim, time will tell and I can tell you that this is the deal of the century! I only have one question, why not sell these in the stores WalMart?
This worked great for one winter. I used it in a spare room for a few hours a day. Just plugged it in to heat my studio. The display panel is hosed. For the price, I expected a little bit more longevity with this product.
Would love this compact, very efficient heater even more if it had a thermostat option in addition to the timer. If its exists I don't know how to set it. Not crazy about setting it for a number of hours. Other than that it cranks out a strong flow of heat, quickly warming our 16x20 room. It's not as noisy as our other infrared heater and love the remote.
This heater is very good at heating a motor home. However I purchased it to heat my fathers wood shop. It didn't heat it at all and it's less than 1,000 sq ft. The biggest problem I have with it is it shuts itself off after 4-8 hrs automatically. Nothing in the instructions anywhere on how to stop that. It also has to have another heat source in order for it to maintain the heat so I end up running a space heater and it at the same time anyways. I haven't seen any savings except it heats the whole motor home whereas the space heater alone only heats one room.
Bought it to heat a 12 X30 shop buildiNg. It does it well and quickly. Wish it has a clock that would allow me to set it to come on at a certain time each morning
With the bitterly cold weather we've had this year, we purchased this unit for supplemental heat in our mobile home. We didn't expect it to heat our whole home, but hoped it would help warm the living room. If the temperature outside is above 35 degrees, it will warm our living room to about 60 degrees, even though we set it to the maximum temperature setting, and this is with our furnace running. Another problem we have is the automatic shut off. It is supposed to shut off after 8 hours, which is a pain in itself, but this unit shuts off after 4 hours. I think an electric radiator style heater would work just as well and cost a lot less than this model.
Ran the heater for 3 hours and the temperature in our 15x20 livingroom went down a degree. The blower fan on this unit is very week. No high or low settings. Poor product all around.
i purchased two of these and was tempted to return them when i saw the price was rolled back and get a refund from 139 each too new $119 price! the verdict is still out on whether I want to keep them, or if I want to return them and order them at the lower price.
We got this heater to warm up the garage. When our furnace was not working for a couple of days we used this to help heat up our small house. It worked great! This heater is doing it's job from our point of view.
This heater heats nicely, doesn't make too much noise and is lightweight to carry around even though it is on casters. I would recommend it highly.
The heater worked well for me, is lightweight, has wheels for easier transport and its reasonably priced.
I needed a heater because the nights have been getting fairly cold here. I use it to keep my house warm, and I've been able to sleep without freezing since I got it
I've only had this heater for a couple of weeks and basically got it to take the chill off of a full basement room where guests/roommates reside. So far, it's been great and it works just as advertised. Not sure what the electric bill will entail, but so far, I am pleased. Thanks!
Heats my master bedroom & bath nicely but haven't had really cold consistent weather yet. It does seem to take a long time to reach the temp you set. I am still pleased with it.
Everything is great except the 8 hour turn of safety feature...have had others that do not have this mandatory shut off...but overall effieciency is great and work for what we need.
Used one week, doing great
