As far as shipping something of this size and weight, it came in excellent double-boxed packaging, arrived in perfect condition to my front porch, and arrived much sooner than expected.
The only problem I've had with it is it has wheels but really dislikes being moved. It has a sensor in it that shuts it off if you bump it or try to move it while it's running which isn't the problem, the problem comes in that it seems like if I move this heater while it's running and it shuts off on me, when I turn it back on the thermostat won't work so it will just run forever until I unplug it for a few seconds so it can reset itself, then it will work properly again. Idk, I guess don't move it. The room I heat is something like 10 by 40 and it has no problem adding 12 degrees to the room even when it's been 25 below in my drafty house.
Cost wise it's been good. I tried an oil radiator and it ran about $120 a month on full blast just trying to add ten degrees to the same room. This is running about $30-$50 a month running 7 days a week 24 hours a day on 67 degrees during the day and 65 at night or when I'm not home. It has a fan but it's not loud enough to even have to turn up the tv even one notch. I've never used the remote because it didn't come with batteries.
These heat the room better if they are pointed at objects like furniture because the infrared rays have to hit something to cause the room to heat up. If you put this in a good sized empty room it wouldn't heat very well. With the small emount of heat that comes directly out of this you wouldn't think it would heat well but boy does it!Read more ›
It's important that I inform the reader that my house was built by Alliance Homes, similar to an Eichler '50s design whereby I have a flat roof, multiple ceiling to floor single paned windows and an older style of radiant floor heating (embedded in the foundation and prone to break as it ages). Needless to say, my home certainly feels the seasonal elements and heating thru my radiant is a comforting yet costly experience. I've been using the unit for several months.
Hence, I decided to supplement my open area (LR/DR combo) of aproximately 1000+ sq/ft. w/ the LifeSmart heater. Set up is a cinch, just plug it in and turn it on w/ one push of the button. Immediately, you can feel the heat evenly dispurse from the unit thru its forced air fan. Noise level is greater, though not pronounced, than other heating unit consideration (like oil-based or radiant space heaters). Yet, I would not recommend the unit for bedroom use as it may disturb some sound-sensitive sleepers. The portable (yes, w/ wheels) unit is not cumbersome to look at size-wise. Although the product description denotes 4 copper coated quartz tubes, I can only visually see 2.
I've kept my unit on its "Eco" mode (67 degrees) for roughly 5 hrs per day, 5 days a week. W/ that said, my monthly electric bill doubled in price from $60 to $120. However, I cannot determine if this unit is the sole culprit of the price increase as I do use an oil-based space heater (on low) in my bedroom and a small radiant space heater (on low) in my office.Read more ›
