Dr. Infrared Heater Dr968

Same Wattage, More Heat 255F@3.2m/s Vs 150F@2.4m/s

Save Big On Your Heating Bills

Dr. Infrared Heater, newly engineered and designed in the US, is one of the best alternative and most efficient heating sources for you this winter. The Dr. Infrared Heater's Advanced Dual Heating System, combining PTC and Quartz Infrared Element, keeps you warm this winter while saving on heating bills. Equipped with a Dual Heating System and High Velocity Low Noise blower, the Dr Infrared Heater increases the heat distribution and transfer rate and the result is heating your room to a comfortable temperature, fast. The Dr. Infrared Heater is certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) USA and Canada, ensuring the highest safety standard. The Dr. Infrared Heater is perfectly safe around children and pets and only gets warm to the touch. It does not have exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. The Dr. Infrared Heater comes with Energy saving Auto Mode, high and low setting when the mode is set to Auto, the unit will cycle on and off and switch between high or low setting to maintain the desired temperature setting. All Dr. Infrared heaters are engineered and designed in the USA.

How is Dr. Heater Different From Other Heaters?

Dr. Heater uses infrared heating, which heats objects in the room, instantly making you feel comfortably warm. Other heaters simply heat the air in the room; the problem with this is hot air rises to the ceiling, creating drafts that leave you feeling hot in one moment and cold in the next. By heating only the objects in the space--not the air--Dr. Heater provides maximum warmth and energy efficiency. With its state-of-the-art technology that helps the room retain air moisture, Dr. Heater won’t dry out your skin like those convection heaters that blast out hot air, stripping the room of moisture. And the best part? It will save you money. Use Dr. Heater instead of your regular heating system, and you could save up to 50% on your next electricity bill. Plus, with its tip-over protection and auto shut-off overheat protection, you can sleep soundly knowing you’ve got a heater that’s superior in safety. With its unparalleled heating capabilities, safety design, energy efficiency, and quietness, Dr. Infrared Heater is simply the best choice for your home heating needs.

Tests Show Dr. Heater Heats Faster and Better Than Competing Heaters

In a side-by-side test comparison in airtight chambers with the same starting temperature, Dr. Heater heated the same amount of space much faster than a competing heater that has a price tag more than double that of Dr. Heater’s.

Dr. Heater Delivers 60% more heat than other 1500-watt heaters. How?

It’s no magic trick--we just understand heat transfer better. Just because two heaters have the same wattage does not mean they transfer the same amount of heat. Wattage indicates the amount of electricity needed to power the heater--not the amount of heat it can deliver. Dr.Infrared Heater’s advanced heating system enables greater heat production without using any more power with a high-efficiency blower that delivers an average of 250°F at 3.5m/s to your room versus competing heaters that can do only 155°F at 2.2m/s. That’s how Dr. Heater can deliver 60% more heat.

Dual Heating System Provides Maximum Comfort and Fastest Heat Transfer Rate

Dr. Heater is the first to feature a dual heating system for maximum heat transfer rate. It combines the energy efficiency of infrared heat with the comfort of convection heat to heat your room fast and comfortably--without hot spots and cold spots

Quiet and Efficient Blower

Dr. Heater’s blower is so quiet, you’ll hardly notice it’s on. Dr. Heater uses a state-of-the-art 7-inch blower that generates higher pressure and moves larger air volume at a lower speed, without any of the noise of those other heaters on the market.

Auto Power Settings | 1000W or 1500W

Dr. Infrared Heater has three power Settings: Auto, Low 1000W and High 1500W. The auto energy saving mode allows you to set your desired temperature from 50-86F. It smartly selects between the two settings depending on your room temperature.The thermostat regulates the heater and causes it to cycle on and off to maintain the set temperature. The 1500-watt setting is desirable under most situations since it heats up the room the fastest to the desired temperature and then cycles off. You can also manually set the heater to run on High or Low all the time or with a timer.

Note: The heater has to be turned on first in order to use the remote. This a safety provision mandated by the Underwriters Laboratory. So, in order to use the remote, the first step for the user is to press the POWER button on the heater itself. This turns the heater on STANDBY. Then, pressing the POWER button on the remote will turn the heater on. The heater can't be turned on if the unit is not on STANDBY

By Nathanael R. Siders on December 15, 2010
Style Name: DR-968 Verified Purchase
We bought this heater to use in our living room and kitchen/dining area. We have all baseboard heat and our heating bills are usually through the roof. This heater does a good job and we are very happy, but there are a few things to point out.

1. It is a smaller heater than you might expect. It is half the price of an eden pure...but be advised that it's about half the size of the eden pure my parents have. That said, I think I'd rather have two of these than one eden pure that way I can space them out more.

2. This thing won't heat a 1000 sq/ft area. We use it in a 250-300 sq/ft living room that has an opening to our kitchen dining room that is about 250 sq/ft. It will heat up the room and maintain when it is as cold as the 20's outside...colder than that and we need to use our baseboard w/ this heater to get it up to temp (in about 10 minutes mind you)...and then this heater will do a great job of maintaining that heat on it's own. We did this down to about 4-5 degrees(F) outside and it worked great.

3. Haven't got a clue on heating bill, but it does draw some serious current. I have blown our breaker more than once by using this heater and our vacuum on the same outlet (always forget the heater is on...see 4)

4. Heater is very quiet and you won't even realize the thing is on except for seeing the orange glow back inside of the heater.

5. The wheels are awesome. We usually heat the living room for a few hours, then wheel it into the kitchen dining room for 20 minutes, then back for a couple hours.....super easy to do as you walk by and keeps both rooms at a comfy 71-74 degrees.

Bottom line is it is a great heater.

First, I want to start off with some background as to why I made this purchase. My parents have two Edenpure heaters in their house. One is on the enclosed back porch and the other is in the family room in the basement. The heat coming out of them is mild and not extremely hot. You can barely hear them at all and they heat very evenly without peaks and valleys in temperature. Very nice!

Obviously that played a factor in my searching for a supplemental heater for the baby's room for the upcoming winter. (I wanted something that would provide efficient supplemental, even heating, and be safe to touch with our baby.) I was sold on the Quarts infrared heaters with the steady heating and efficiecy. (like my parents have) I still am. BUT, this heater only has one infrared quartz tube. Many others have four to six. I didn't realize this until I read the book when this heater was delivered. There is a PTC heating element in this heater too. I knew that going in, but didn't understand what that was. In case you don't know what that is in layman terms, it is a highly efficient ceramic heater. It varies its own power to maintain a consistant temperature and will not get mind melting hot like those cheap ceramic heaters. I didn't find out what "PTC" was until an hour ago. I was really looking forward to the steady heat that the quartz heaters produce, but what I got was something different.

Immediately after turning on the heater the temperature blowing out of this unit was hot. It was hot enough to burn my skin if held in front of it after seven to ten seconds. I have to admit at first I was impressed, but then realized that this was no typical quartz infrared heater and this wasn't what I was looking for in a heater.

I purchased a DR968 unit thinking it was a true "quartz heat.." The marketing of a "Quartz" heater lead me to believe a quartz heater would give you more BTU's per kilowatt.. The unit was purchased Feb 2012 and it died 3 1/2 years later (it has a three year warrant.!!!!.) Being slightly mechanical I decided to take the unit apart to possibly locate the problem.. (even though the outside of the unit box clearly states: "there are no serviceable parts inside unit"..) Well, after a lengthily dismantling job (I dont think they want you in there !!) low and behold I found one small quartz tube (the one you can see from the front) and 2 electrical resistant heating coils... Yes, electric resistance heating... Now I know "heat" is "heat" but I am upset this isn't anywhere in there advertisements and I think there many be others potential customers out there like me who bought (or will buy this) thinking it was saving me money while producing heat for my cold house.. I dont think so.. The issue that really bothers me is these small coils on the resistance heating element were clogged with DUST... The dust filter on the rear of the unit was/is worthless and I'm convinced thats what caused the unit to fail.. There should be more truth in advertising.. I do not recommend this unit..

...you need to invest a little time in thinking about 1) what it is you want it to do and, 2) coming to grips with what it is actually capable of.

A lot of people buy this heater (24%) after looking at the EdenPure portable electric space heater. I am guessing that those who do are looking to save about fifty bucks over the cost of the EdenPure and believe (correctly) that it is a virtual replica of the EdenPure. And that would be just wonderful if the EdenPure portable electric space heater (and this one) lived up to the hype that surrounds it. The problem is neither one does...they are both being promoted with false premises.

In fact, some claims are pure lies. Take this one: "Testing shows, the Dr. HeaterTM has 60% more heat output compared to most other heaters on the market." Ask yourself, what testing and compared to what heaters? You should be highly suspicious anytime a claim such as this is made without reference to the actual testing. Who did the testing? When was the testing done? What heaters were tested in comparison to this one? Odds are that there was never any testing done because the claim they are making is ridiculous. Here's why: Electric heat is electric heat no matter how you slice it or dice it. The only way that a 1500 watt electric heater can have 60% more heat output than "most other heaters on the market" is if "most other heaters" are rated at 938 watts. Period. End of story. It doesn't matter how the electric heat is produced or delivered, if the wattage rating is the same then the heat output is the same.

The makers of this heater also throw around mysterious science sounding stuff like "PTC." So just what is PTC? It stands for positive temperature coefficient and that sounds pretty high tech, too, doesn't it?
