Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description

Great for moving from room to room for added heat on chilly winter days and nights, the Bionaire BH3950-U heater offers a gorgeous modern styling, silent operation, and fast convection heating for large rooms. The BH3950-U heater uses a compact micathermic heating element, which uses 80 percent convection and 20 percent reflective heat to warm the air directly in front of the unit, which then circulates upwards into the room to provide consistent warmth. Ultra quiet, this convection-based heater provides a steady, long-term heating solution for larger rooms.

The BH3950-U offers 2 heat settings (maximum 1500 Watts), an adjustable thermostat, tip-over safety protection, and an auto shut-off function. Nicely lightweight for easy portability, it also features smooth rolling wheels, a large carry handle, and a cool-to-the-touch, flame-resistant plastic housing. The unit measures 26-3/8 by 6 by 21-1/4 inches (LxWxH) and it's backed by a 5-year warranty. It requires assembly of the hand and wheels.

Product Description

The Bionaire Micathermic Console Heater offers a slender design, this heater does not take up a lot of space and heats up quickly. Heats through the process of convection. The micathermic heating panels are made of the mineral mica, which resists breakdown and has excellent stability. Adjustable thermostat control and heat mode setting let you set the heat just right for you.

This product is very similar to the higher priced BH3900. The review below also applies to this.

My new home came with central heating. I loved the convenience, but wanted a heater for the bedroom so I didn't have to heat the entire home through the night, when it was only one room we needed heat in. There began my quest for a portable electric heater!

My first try was a Bionaire Digital Tower Ceramic Heater. It went right back to the store the moment I realized how powerful (read : noisy) the fan inside was. It did do a decent job warming up the room though.

I knew I'd like something quiet. Real quiet. My next try was an Oil Filled Radiator. It was much quieter - just low clicking sounds (probably from the metal or oil expanding?) - but failed to impress on heating. It took almost an hour to make a significant difference to a cold room (12x14) - and barely kept the temperature up through the night with the thermostat dialled up. When in use - the surface turned really hot - and I worried about someone stepping into it in the middle of the night - or my cat scalding herself while trying to kill it :)

I decided to try the Bionaire BH3900 - it promised swifter heating and a cool surface. My wife and me were delighted! It warms the room up much swifter than the oil filled radiator and is absolutely silent! The heat mostly escapes out the top - and there isn't a lot of heat radiated to the sides. The grille on the side makes this look more elegant than the radiators - and just gets luke warm even when this has been running all night. And while my cat has sniffed at the grille (when on) - she hasn't been tempted into attacking it yet.

This was twice the price of the other options we looked at - but were sold on it the first night we tried using it. I wish the thermostat were digital (knob takes some tweaking to find your sweet spot) - but our quest for a heater has ended.

We bought this model from Costco in October, 2006 and used it for about two years, with pretty much continual usage from October to May. It's quiet and puts out enough heat for a large room. It stopped working after two years. I noticed that it was still under warranty so I contacted (emailed) customer service at Bionaire. They were very cooperative and sent us a new unit at no charge.

I disassembled the older unit and it seemed well built. I found that the on off switch was broken. This is a "snap in" plastic switch and if you are careful you can pry it out of the faceplate with a small screwdriver or knife. For those of you who may have a similar problem the switch is a round, illuminated SPST rocker type and it's made by a factory in China under the brand name RLEIL model RL3-5. Either the switch broke and then fried or it overheated and some plastic melted internally. In any case the switch doesn't appear to be as heavy duty as it should be and I would recommend not using the "high" or 1500 watt setting for this unit. I bought a pack of 10 spare switches on Ebay for $5 so that's gives you an idea how cheap they are made. It doesn't appear that these switches have a UL rating.

Postscript: April 14th OK, I got the new unit under warranty and it's been improved! Instead of a lighted on off switch they have a separate light on the front panel to let you know the unit is running. So the new switch looks to be heavier duty. Also, they changed the design of the front panel handle to allow easier access to the panel for disassembly and repairs should they be needed.

One of the reasons I like shopping at Amazon is that you get to research the product you're interested in by getting some real feedback on the product from actual owners. I find that part extremely valuable. Anyway back to my thoughts on the Bionaire BH3950-U Silent Micathermic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat. Keep in mind I only had this heater for a few days. First thing is that shipping was incredibly fast. I selected Super Saver shipping which knocked out the shipping charge and I was expecting it to arrive a bit slower than regular shipping but to my surprise I received the heater in 2 days. I was not expecting that at all. There is a bit of assembly required with this heater but trust me, it is minimal. You'll just have to attach a set of wheels, a set of foot pegs and then the handle. All of it was done without tools. Yes that's right. Without tools. The screws that were supplied were the wing-nut or thumbscrew type so you honestly don't need a screwdriver and the assembly was accomplished in 10 minutes.

The heater is very neat looking. The design is very similar to the Duh-long-high type oil-filled heaters. (Yes I was being cruel to Delonghi) The frame of the heater is made of hard plastic and the sides are what appear to be of a chicken-wire type enclosure. This allows you to fully see the internal panels or heating elements. You will notice 3 heating elements. Now strangely the design is not ugly. It's kind of cool to see what's going on inside the heater. Now those oil filled heaters work OK but they take soooo long to get hot and if you're not careful you can burn yourself with them. No worry about burning yourself with the Bionaire and it gets hot very quickly. Even on the Low wattage setting the unit begins to give off heat after just 30 seconds of turning it on.
