These are some great heaters....first got 2 and then ordered 2 more....they are heating great on our patio during cooler nights, they don't need much space, work perfect. I like the radiant heat oscillating vs blown out hot air with other space heaters - very flexible/mobile .... I also use them indoors as a space heater during those sometimes chilly days, then you don't need to put the A/C on 'Heat' for the whole house...they are effective in a 5 ft range, depends somewhat on the surroundings eg ceiling height etc, versatile, mobil easy to handle....love them -

Reasonable price, and we love how this unit is easily portable from room to room and quickly warms the area. We have been able to lower our thermostat to 60 - 64 degrees and still be comfortable sitting in our small living room with this heater set at low. We haven't had the opportunity to use it on our outdoor patio but we have used it in our bathroom knowing that it is safe for use in a "wet" environment. We recommend!

I usually buy based upon a sizable number of four or five star reviews for an item, while looking at and evaluating the lower reviews for possible problems. This unit had one raving review, but I researched outside of Amazon and saw all good things.
The unit heats with great strength. Within 5 and even 10 feet you can feel it directly. The 80° oscillating factor is nice and it doesn't have a fan, which keeps it virtually silent in operation, a little vibration at first but that ceased after it warmed up. I found running my ceiling fans in downward clockwise direction improved heat circulation but no necessary. Controls are independent and simple on the top of the unit. The timer can be set to high or low and in 1/2-1-2-4 hr intervals, or stay on constant. It has an over turn and over heat sensor to shut off. Cord is about 6ft long. The instructions recommend not attaching extension cord for potential overheating or blowing a circuit, although I imagine this as a legal disclaimer.
Overall, very pleased. I can see why the first reviewer purchased additional units. I may do the same to have one main living area and for additional rooms or outside. It definitely cuts down on central heating expenses. Great ambient warmth.
