      Poor Design & Not Very Energy Efficient

      Posted

      Honeywell designed this to be energy efficient and it wasn't. With this unit, you're allowed to either have it run constantly on Low, Medium or High until you turn it off or set it to a temp. you like and it will shut off/on automatically according to the temp. This is where the extra "energy savings" was supposed to come in. This unit will go from High to Medium to Low as it approached the temp. you set. For example, its set for 70. If the current temp. is 65, the unit will run on High until 68 then go down to Medium and 69/70 it will go down to low and then its supposed to shut off. High =1500, Medium=1250 and Low=1000 in terms of energy used. What Honeywell seems to not realize that in lowering the output of the heater as it got close to set temperature, its not putting out as much heat and thus can't reach the desired temperature. So, in my case, it hit 68 and went down to medium and sat at that temperature and at times got up to 69 but, could not go any higher because it would not stay on high. It does to save energy but, if its constantly running at 1250 or even 1000 you negate any potential energy savings by dialing down the heat. It makes no sense at all. You end up using A LOT more energy in the long run. Do NOT buy this unit. You'll be stuck with a heater that you can't set it and forget it.

      Kept me from freezing

      Our furnace went out due to a faulty pressure switch, at the start of a few weeks of freezing temperatures. It was going to take a week or more to get the part we needed, so we bought one of these. It's a fairly small manufactured home around 1024 sqft. I set this one up in the living room, and a smaller Vornado in the bedroom. I kept it unplugged and off when I was away, so it took it a while to warm up the place when I’d get home, but it did keep the place generally comfortable while I was there. It was heating a fairly big area, and “toasty” wasn't really an option (nor was I expecting or trying for that), but it kept the place adequately comfortable enough to get us through till the part came. It was easy to use, and fairly light. I have no complaints on functionality. My only concern was due the design and placement of buttons on the top. My cats kept trying to sit on it (being a shiny new object in the room). When they did, they kept pushing buttons; accidentally turning in off, on, or changing temperature settings. Thus, this is why I made sure it was unplugged when unattended, so they didn't accidentally turn it back on when no one was around.

      Great Heater with Realistic Performance!

      All marketing teams want to tell you how their product is better than everyone else's. My car cost less to maintain than yours. I get more performance for the same or a lesser price than you. Of course this Heater is not going to heat a 1200 square foot home. The size alone would tell you that. Also, it is not something to use everday because of its efficiency. However, this Heater does cook large areas. Helped me out when my furnace died this winter. Good quality and does well at what it was created to do. Which is keep you warm with Real World performance and matches the levels of 'like' name brand products; maybe even a tinge better. In my opinion; definitely a good purchase.

      Our heat broke in the middle of winter and was unable to be fixed for a few days. My husband and I went out and bought this and it was worth every penny!!! We left this in our great room (kitchen/living room combo) and aimed it so that not only did it heat the first floor but it also was able to heat upstairs to 73 degrees (our house is about 1500 sq. ft) We took this into our bedroom overnight and it was so hot we actually turned it off! (It has a feature to set the temp. but we didn't use it) This is an amazing gadget and worth every cent! Very efficient!!! I would definitely buy this again or recommend it to anyone!!!

      Excellent space heater

      This space heater works well, is easy to use and move around and heats up a medium sized room as advertised. It has three setting, Hi, Medium and low and two programmable settings. It has a built in filter that you can easily clean and doesn't need replacement. It goes up to 1500 watts on high and also has a timer and remote control for all functions. It is nice that there is no fuel or odor as well. I have no issues with this - it looks and works great. A bit expensive but it is a solid, well built unit and if you are not trying to heat a whole house or large room with a cathedral ceiling you should be happy with it.

      Great for Smaller Spaces

      I have been using this heater for about a month now. I purchased it after reading the reviews on Bestbuy.com. While the area I need to heat is a bit larger than that covered by this heater, it does a reasonably good job. I am up in the San Bernardino mountains so it gets pretty cold at night. I run the heater constantly from about 5pm on. It doesn't make the room toasty, but it does raise the temperature anywhere from 5-7 degrees in an hour. The area I'm trying to heat is approx 180 sq feet. Using it in an enclosed room like the bedroom (same size) produced much quicker and better results.

      I bought this for my husband's "man cave" located in our finished basement. The area is nowhere near the square footage the information booklet claims this heater covers. I thought for sure he would be dialing down the temp.-NOT! If anything, we added a few throws in order to be comfortable while sitting down there. My basement can be a little drafty but, I saw no difference in this heater than the cheaper ones we have purchased in the past. Not $$$ well spent!

      I purchased this during the winter as our room was a lot larger than the other rooms in our home and we didn't want the rest of the family to be sweating while we were freezing. This heater has great controls and I like that it has rollers so that I can easily position it anywhere. It's stable and works very well. I gave it 4 stars only because it was not completely silent, but it was a good value for the money.
