We had a very specific place to put a heater in our bathroom and this heater fit there perfectly. It is able to "sweep" the warm air around so that it doesn't just heat up one area of a room. The "sweep" capabilities are 90, 170, and 360 degrees. It does not remember the last "sweep" setting that it was on, so you have to set which "sweep" you want each time you turn it on. The thermostat feature is great since you can maintain a rooms temperature at a certain temperature without wasting much electricity. The fan will turn on periodically to make sure that the room temperature hasn't fallen below the minimum threshold and then turn the heater on again if needed.
The remote is infra-red technology instead of radio technology, which means that it is "line-of-sight." This means that you can't turn it on from around a corner or if you're in the next room (for instance, turning it on when my alarm goes off so that the bathroom is heating while I walk in). This may be for safety reasons as I can see how turning on a heater without knowing the state of the heater could be dangerous. An alternative would be a timer that turned the heater on at a certain time, but I don't know if there are any heaters that truly have that capability (some do turn off automatically after a certain amount of time).
Overall a great heater and I am satisfied with this purchase.
I would recommend this to a friend
