Check that your fuse allows for the amp requirement... I suppose this applies to all mini heaters
on December 18, 2012
Make sure you have the amps. This product blew our fuse everytime. The directions state that 10 amps are needed. Our fuse in the related area of the house15 amps. Basically, we could not run any other appliance at the same time (TV in our case).
Otherwise, the unit was easy to start the first time (you have to screw on the little black base), easy to run, and provided toasty heat for the small room we had intended for it. Users are advised to keep the unit 3 feet from basically anything (walls, furniture, etc.). That information may also influence whether it is suitable for what you have in mind so I thought I'd note it.
Needing so many amps is not technically a product flaw and might not be an issue in other homes, but I wish the requirement had been stated better / somewhere in the product description. I also think my expection/assumption that a compact product like this would be suitable for my home's energy availability was reasonable. Hence 3 stars.
