    The absolute best heater you can buy ever

    Amazing omg had one already and just bought 2 more today and I'm buying 2 more tomorrow My mother bought it last year from another store and I complained about the price, because we were use to buying 40$ heaters. Silly me. Those same 40$ comfort home heaters almost caused a fire in my room twice. It burned out all the sockets in my room and it only heated up one area in my room. This heater is worth at least 200$ just alone for how safe it is not even to talk about how well it works. 300sq room with a door and perfection. It got so warm one day I had to wake up in the middle of the the night to turn it off. Not even lower the temperature but to actually turn it off 4 hours later that warm air is still trapped in my room. It saves so much money on the gas heating up the boiler. It takes a little time to warm up just like a real heater. People who left negative comments are usually people who don't read. If your room is larger than 300 sq feet then you need something bigger.

    The first one I purchased was dead out of the box so I returned it and got another one of the identical model. This one worked. (not sure you could call it working) as it is supposed to generate heat for an entire room but at least It turned on. It never got hot at all. Maybe got warm. With 7 different heat settings, none were distinguishable from each other. Also it will not heat even a 5 x 8 bathroom let alone a normal room in your home such as a bedroom or family room. It is advertised as able to circulate heat throughout an entire room. It does not nor cannot. I was very disappointed. I returned the second one and ended up going with another manufacturer and was much more satisfied. Summary-Underpowered and overpriced! Skip it.

    Spot on for Spot heating

    I purchased this unit to heat a corner office with multiple windows in an old building. The office is 12' x 15' with outside, brick walls on two sides. It is upstairs. The office is supported by a central, forced air system. However, the thermostat for that system is in a hallway not effected by the temp in my office. There is a 7-12 degree difference between my office and the thermostat, so it would have to be set so high it would bake people in the other offices to heat my office. This unit quickly brings the room up to temp, is quiet so as to not effect meetings or phone calls, and has to be saving the office from running the big system, which should save it money. The unit keeps air moving in the office which is helpful so as not to get stuffy when the doors are closed.

    I researched small heaters online and read that Vornado had a very good reputation. I purchased the Vornado VH200 to heat a single room that measures 13' x 14' and am so thrilled with the performance that I purchased a 2nd one for my Son to heat a larger area and a 3rd for my Mother-in-Law. This heater is extremely quiet, and has three heat settings as well as a rotary dial for the amount of fan. I never do reviews but felt so strongly about the quality of this product that I wanted to share.

    Silently heats a whole room

    My furnace failed in the dead of winter, and repair was 2 days away. I needed to heat at least one whole room in my house to hang out in. This little heater did it fast and utterly silently. I reviewed all the space heaters available in my store, and this had the best of everything at a good value... and a 5 year limited warranty compared to the others' 3 year warranty. I've been happy with my Vornado cooling fan for many years. With this purchase, I have further trust in this company's products.

    This Vornado lack power and fan speed

    This $59 vornado did not have enough power (thats i squared R for engineers) to fill a card board box. I couldn't feel the heat from 4 ft away. Since it was not in the store, I ordered it and the fan actually came broke and the fan didn't work. When I rec'd the 2nd fan, it was insufficient for my very basic needs. I bought the larger metal one for $90 and it works fine and has sufficient power to heat a small area. Go with a bigger one for sure!

    I saw good reviews for this heater and decided to pick one up for my apartment. It works real well for my apartment. Heats the entire apartment. Most of the time I only use it at night without running any other heat source. I normally don't have it on 3 which is the max heat setting. I run mine on either 1 or 2, which is sufficient. My power bill is much lower than when I run the baseboard heater. The reviews were accurate for this appliance. Works great!

    Bought the Vornado -Vortex Heater 12/2/2018 and it stopped working 12/28/2018. From the beginning, I did not feel that it heated as well as the identical Vortex heater that we use to heat our 22 ft. travel trailer. The new heater I purchased on 12/28/2018 will now no longer turn on. Will have to return for a replacement. Will write a followup review if repair or replacement item works to our satisfaction.

    I like that it has a thermostat. I can tell the difference between the level 1 and level 3 heat output setting. If the heater is close, I might get too warm, which is a good thing. I could tell it was working when I walked into the room...in other words, it made the room warmer. I wouldn't say that the room ever felt hot, but it was definitely warming the entire kitchen, not just the area where it was located in the kitchen.

    It's heats the room well for the size and price. I set mine on medium settings and it will go from ambient room temperature of 65 to 78 in about 1 hour (whole room). Would be faster on higher setting but gets noisy with high fan setting. Great heater to put by my feet when I need spot heating when sitting at the computer. Small enough to easily move it anywhere in the house. Only thing that would improve this heater is a remote to change temperature and fan speed.

    Pretty bad heater. Broke in 2 months.

    I bought this heater for my workers for winter. They do labor work outside and in their lunch room we keep small size space heaters to keep them warm. I purchased this heater, which worked for about 3 months, but then it stopped heating the area. The coils won't heatup and I had to buy another cheaper honeywell heater. In my opinion this this is not a good heater, DO not spend $60 on it. Buy a cheaper $25 honeywell products and they will last you longer.

    Used this in my 10x12 room and does a great job heating. Had to get a replacement through Best Buy after a year. The fan just stopped working but did power on and off. Worked great for me because I did get the Best Buy warranty so I recommend that but beware if you use it heavily as you may have have the same issue I did and if you don’t have the warranty, $60 down the drain

    This is the perfect little heater for a room! The wide base prevents tip-over, and it has a safety feature that if it is knocked by accident, it turns off. Built in handle for easy moving, and the vortex style fan spreads the heat out away from the heater, and warms up a room quickly! Purchased for my daughter, who stays in her room studying, with the door closed, which makes her room colder. This little heater allows her privacy and warmth!

    Save your $ and get this small heater. Purchased this heater for our 5 month old baby since we know it can get cold some nights and are still afraid of her covering herself completely with blankets. The heather does its job nicely, we keep it at a low setting of 3-4 and it power down once it detects the room in the air is warm enough. Wish it had an actual digital temperature display instead of a dial, but hey for the price I cannot complain.

    So I purchased this space heater on 11/7 - Loved it - very quiet (no noise at all), great heat for my space (office) and today, it has just stopped working. Saw this in similar reviews, but took a chance. Returning (not exchanging) the space heater today, not taking a chance with another one. Will have to look for a different brand

    I prefer using the Vornado Vortex Electric heater over the apartment's heating unit. The only sound the Vornado makes is a soft click when it turns on. The thermostat seems to have a 3 degree cycling on and off range, which I find very comfortable. It doesn't get hot to touch and very safe to move around. It is perfect for my apartment.

    I purchased this space heater (VH200) After trying countless other brands, this unit is quiet enough that you'd think it wouldn't heat up your room! Let me tell you I was impressed at how fast and comfortable it kept the temperature in my room after just a few minutes....... The Vortex Technology that Vornado uses really does its job...... And I also like the fact that it comes with a 5 Year Limited Warranty.

    We have a big living room of about 250 square feet. We had a lot of drafts coming through and didn't know which heater to buy. We didn't want a big tower, either. We picked this up and we were pleasantly surprised. Kept the entire apartment warm and it has a thermostat that shuts on and off when the temp changes from the settings. Way better than an ugly tower heater!

    This is my second Vornado product, my first heater though. I am very impressed with the power this little heater puts out. I am using it in a small bedroom, but it heats it perfectly. It also has a nice cut off feature, so it will not run constantly once the desired heat level is reached. Highly recommended!

    This room heater is great at warming up a cold room. The room we use this in has a high ceiling and does not struggle at maintaining a comfortably warm temperature. Been using for over a month. We have it on the lowest fan setting, heat strength and never go past 3 or 4. The heater has been place furtherest from the bed, and from that distance, it's very quiet.
