    We only use space heaters to heat our home (1200 sqft southern bungalow) since gas is so expensive. We purchased an expensive infrared heater for the kitchen, hall, and living room and this heater for the bedrooms. When placed between the two bedrooms and the office (the doors are near eachother) using the oscillating function and it will keep them right around 55 degrees when it is well below freezing outside, which is fairly impressive for a tiny heater. I'm guessing that if i had two more i could heat my entire house just as well as a furnace with these (see house size above). If you are using this as a supplementary heater it should exceed your expectations. I enjoy the thermostat feature. It will turn off when the area reaches the desired temperature. If you want it to run constantly just turn it all the way up (85 degrees is the max). The fan feature works. It doesn't blow cold air but it circulates the room well. My children have knocked it over several times and it has shut off without fail. It also hasn't broken because of falling and the oscillating feature continues to work. They have also pushed the buttons when they weren't supposed to quite a few times and nothing crazy has happened. If they are still carried next year i'm definitely buying more.

    I use this for my 2BR apartment and it provides quick heating solution for just when it gets too cold in the living room. I strive to not pay traditional heating costs during winter (good that I live in SoCal) and this product serves its purpose. The remote control feature is very handy in times when all you wanna do is to bundle (or cuddle up) up to keep warm. This also comes with several settings and options from energy saver to automatic on at 40F to timed usage and adjustable heat temp. Just a heads-up, don't use extension power cords or surge protectors on this product for safety reasons. If powered through a mid-range surge protector, it will automatically shut down...The user manual only warned against the use of a power strip. Two thumbs up for this product. Length of use so far: 2 months

    Nice heater

    This little heater is great. We bot it for our 3 year old's room. It's not loud, heats the whole room (standard size bedroom) and is not hot to the touch. My wife steals it during the day on the weekends when she is doing stuff around the house. The remote is great too. Couple of things: 1) their is a little lag time on the oscillate button and on/off button. If you just push the button and wait a second, it will work fine. 2) There was a "new heater" smell for the first week or so, but that quickly went away with more use. All in all, I am extremely happy with my first space heater. We are setting our thermostat lower now that we don't have to compensate for heating our daughter's room. Great buy!

    Great purchase for those cold winter mornings!

    After moving into a small 2 bedroom where we don't control the heat, we realized we really needed a space heater just to get out of bed on those cold winter New England mornings! I shopped around, and finally decided on this one both for it's great price and for the tall and slender size. We can store it behind the door when not in use, and pull it out into the middle of a room to plug in and use whenever we needed a little extra warmth. The oscillation function is great so it's not blasting directly at you all the time, and helps warm up the room quickly (sometimes we'd even get hot with it on just sitting in the living room!). The only con I would say is there is not a timer function, but if you can get up real quick to turn it on and hop back in bed while it warms up, it's totally worth it. Totally satisfied (and warm!) customers!

    I was looking for a heater to warm up my treatment room so I wouldn't have to turn up the thermostat for the whole house. In the past, I've used oil-filled radiating heaters, which are warm and quiet and not drafty, and also allow me to hang a towel over them. However, they take a long time to heat up a room. I decided to go with a different sort this time. This ceramic tower heater warms up my room and is not as noisy as I had expected. The remote control means I can increase or decrease the temperature while lying on the treatment table myself. It would be great if the markings on the controls could be read without having to go get my reading glasses... Still, I am quite satisfied overall.

    This little guys is so much more powerful than I expected it to be. It gets my rather large, not well insulated, attic bedroom feeling warm in less than ten minutes. The auto shut-off feature when it reaches a certain temperature gives me peace of mind, as I don't fear that it'll overheat. I haven't seen any huge change in the electric bill either, and I've had this for a whole winter now. I don't keep it overnight, mind you, just enough to make the room comfortable while I'm up and about, shutting off before heading to bed.

    Very effective heater (and fan)

    What I like about this heater is that it is compact, but powerful. It heats up the room fairly quickly, and I also like the fact that it can be used only as a fan (no heat). The one thing that I didn't like is that I have been able to plug it in just one of my child's room power outlets; if I use it on any other ones, it trips the GFCI breaker from my breaker box. As this may not be the only thing to blame (clearly it's an interaction issue, as it works well on that one -out of the 6) it may be related to the design of the device. So, just beware; you might get the same issue. If you do, just try different outlets.

    Warm Enough For My Office

    So I am able to work from home, however, my office is in the basement and it can get quite cold in my room, which is about 100 sq feet. I got this heater for Christmas as a gift. I do like that it has a remote, which allows me to turn it on, change the heating mode, and turn on and off the 90 degree rotation. I also like that you can set the temperature and it will automatically turn and off as needed. You can also set a timer for it to entirely shut off. This thing does put off a lot of heat and begins to warm the room quite quickly. It also is very quiet, which I appreciate.
