    Greater Heater, defective Thermostat

    I purchased this to keep the bedroom warm at night. I does this very well. The heater portion is great. And it oscillates too, the product description states it does not. But..... The thermostat is off by 8-10 degrees. Set it for 68 and it heats to 78. I tried dealing with it, set it at 60 at night to keep the room at 68. This ended up being too much trouble. I figured I should get what I paid for. I returned it and ordered another. I will update the review when the new one comes. By the way, construction seems a little on the cheap side, not as solid feeling as I expected. Fan does make a bit of noise but I got used to it. Subconsciously the fan became associated with the coming feeling of heat.

      Thank you for the feedback. I will forward the incorrect specifications and issue with the thermostat to the correct people in order to have the information reviewed. - Jon, Insignia Support BBY-ExBrand_Insignia

    Stored for Next Winter

    Given that this was a season ending closeout offer, I am trying to resist temptation of opening the carton and placing the unit into service for now and instead would prefer to place it into service during the '18-'19 winter season. However, if this heater operates anything like the similar Ceramic Tower Heater I purchased in January two years ago, then there is no reason that I should not expect the best from this new one, as well. My rating is based upon faith and experience which should be reliable bases for such. Now, I have two of them!

    We picked this portable heater up for our home office for the days my husband works from home and the house is chilly. We don't have to adjust our pre-sets on our main thermostat if he wants a little more heat in the office. We only used it a few times before the weather warmed up but it seems to do what we wanted it to, which is provide quiet heat for our one little room.

    Not worth the money

    It’s a nice looking tower and seemed nice in the description but the build was cheap and wobbly as well as the heat didnt spread through the room it went out about a foot and that was it. Also stopped working after about two weeks. It only heats up on the dark grey part of the tower. Get Honeywell.

    Larger Unit for Similar Price

    I do not know the differences in the wattage ouptuts, but this unit clearly has superior output than one I purchased two-three years ago at same price that had less output. So this difference tells me that it was a good deal to seal. Recommend only at same sale price.

    Thermostat completely off. It will heat to temp I want then keep climbing 10 degrees after it shuts off. Then within 2 mins. it will dive down 15 degrees even thought the room is warm. It is wildly all over the place. Also the remote didn't work at all.

    I've purchased a few space heaters in the past and they all come with the fancy remote and a bunch of buttons. But in the end they either don't work well or cost a fortune to operate them. This one works really well. Compact and light weigh and it does the job of heating the area well.

    Great Small Area Heater

    I wasn’t expecting much when I purchased this heater but it came and has been a great success for heating areas in our little place that the drafts are bad! It has a good sense of the surrounding temp and only heats when it’s needed! Great buy for our needs.

    Complete Garbage

    This item, while highly reviewed and recommended by others, for me has been nothing short of complete garbage. This item would not even power on new out of the box. I exchanged for another one with the exact same issue.

    Well actually it warms my bedroom, and very well I might add. Love the oscillating feature, along with eco mode. It also provdes the perfect amount of "white noise" for those who prefer sleeping with a fan on but prefer the air to be warm instead.

    Only heats a small area

    The heater looks nice, but doesn’t heat a small space for very long. Even on high I can barely tell it’s on if it weren’t for the humming noise which can get annoying after awhile.

    We bought this to leave on for our dogs in the living room while we're not home. Came home multiple times to a 50 degree room, but this homeboy said it was 80 degrees in the room. The discrepancy was too high to ignore, don't do it if you can avoid it...

      If there is that significant of a discrepancy, I would suggest having the device reviewed under the 1 year manufacturer warranty by the Geek Squad desk at your local Best Buy store. - Jon, Insignia Support BBY-ExBrand_Insignia

    The only issue that I have with this heater is that it doesn't seem to reach out as far as I would like. However, I love the remote and the quiteness. I forgot it was in the room.

    Stops generating heat after couple weeks

    Worst product I have ever brought, it ramps up your power bill by 100%, doesn't heat the room and finally after few days it stopped generating heat and worked as fan/portable AC, think of turning A/C during chilly weather.

    In a nutshell, one of the best portable heater I have purchased - light, so I can carry it wherever I want. tall so that heats more area, timer to control the time for which it runs! Love it!

    I've been using the unit a few months. Its performed admirably. I like the oscillating feature, it keeps the whole bathroom warm, not just one spot or area.
