Here are the reasons I love this heater:
-It has a great oscillating option which helps move the heat around the room more efficiently.
-Option to view on the display the temp at which you set the unit, or the room temp. I find this very handy when I'm wondering what the temp is and when it might cut off.
-Low and High. Low uses half the wattage but doesn't compromise on the heat. The heat is so warm you can barely hold your hand in front of the output register for more than a couple of seconds. The other heaters I tried were blowing warm air on their low setting.
-Not super quiet but not noisy. A low, unobtrusive humming.
I have this in about a 700 sq ft space and have it set on "low" 60 so it is running fairly constantly. The auto temp is working however because I noticed last night it did cut off several times after reaching and maintaining my requested temperature, which is great.
Unfortunately, the humidifier leaked hence the four star rating. I contacted Amazon and they are sending me a replacement. Once I receive the replacement I will send this back (as to not go without heat I'm so happy they could do this for me). I read several other reviews stating the humidifier leaked/didn't work properly. I will report back once I receive the replacement. I'm really hoping I will receive a unit that has a working humidifier because I plan on using this feature a lot (and putting drops of essential oils into my water bottles).
UPDATE - ok so the replacement unit humidifier did not work either so I returned that one, too. The heater worked so great so I thought I would try one more time. The third replacement had a working humidifier! You can tell right away if it is going to leak. Find the plastic bottle adapter that best fits your bottle size/shape. Fill the bottle with water, screw on the adapter/top and hold it upside down. If there is ANY water dripping from the bottle, it will leak once you place it into the humidifier holder. I really wanted this product to work because I diffuse essential oils and thought I could place a few drops of essential oils into the water bottle and the humidifier would diffuse the scent into the air. In retrospect, after all of the return hassles, I wish I would have bought the one without the humidifier and used the extra money to buy a nice diffuser. Lesson learned. I still stand my my review that this is an excellent heater. I ran two all winter as my primary heating source and my electric bill only increased by $30.00 per month.
One more thing - some infrared heater makers advise placing the unit on a sturdy tabletop or desk for larger areas. I found the unit to be significantly more efficient in my large areas while placed directly on the floor.
I bought this heater for supplementing my oil furnace driven baseboard heat. My house is a 1000 sq. ft. open loft style with cathedral ceilings so it has lots of open air space. I knew I would need something that could belt out heat well and evenly. I settled on this one mainly because of the added humidifier and oscillation capability since most others didn't have those features.
This heater does the trick for my situation. I keep my thermostat at a solid 60F so it doesn't turn on the furnace as often. I use this heater to bring that up to about 64-68 (I don't mind it a little cooler). Usually I will have it run downstairs with oscillation and humidifier on and set it to 64-68 (depending on different factors). So far it has been very successful at keeping the downstairs area at around that temp. We haven't hit any severe cold snaps in NY yet, but as of Nov 2014 we have had a few below 20's and it did fine keeping up during those dates too. It keeps the downstairs a pretty solid temperature, and usually the upstairs area (its a master bedroom loft) will stay about 2 degrees warmer than downstairs. This is after I seal and throw plastic on all of the windows for the winter. I imagine this wouldn't work quite as well if I hadn't done that, but I digress.
The heater shifts from high, to low, to just fan as needed depending on the internal thermostat. This is indicated by the lights. I have only run it on auto so far and haven't seen any need to put it on solid high or low as it regulates itself quite well. The default auto temp is 68F and can be easily changed up or down anytime.
When it said "oscillating" I thought that it meant that the whole unit was on a turntable that turned. However, it is simply the inner slots inside where the heat comes out that swivel back and forth. This is a smarter design as it is far less mechanical and saves more energy not turning the weight of the whole unit. The oscillation covers about a 60 degree arc so it spreads the heat decently at least in one direction. The oscillating slots are made of a high temp polymer (plastic) which feels weird as you think it may melt them or denature the polymer with enough time, but they do fine right now.
The humidifier functions pretty well. When on it shoots a solid jet of cool mist about a foot above the unit. There is a tiny sliding door that you can use to close off the hole where the mist comes out which I guess is to possibly regulate the mist a little, but all in all seems kind of pointless. Maybe to prevent dust and such from getting in when it's off I guess? There's a pleasant blue light that illuminates the back reservoir and bottle. I like it, but I know some people are sticklers for random L.E.D. lights. The back reservoir's design is one of the few things I don't like about this unit. It's simply a tiny reservoir with the misting unit built into it. It hangs off the back of the unit via a plastic pipe that sends the mist into the unit. The connection is solid and I haven't had it leak on me from there, but when you put a 3 liter bottle on the back full of water like I have set up, it seems like it's a lot of weight to have on top of the reservoir for it to be just connected by the pipe. I wish there was some other supporting structure to prevent the pipe from flexing backwards slightly under the weight. It has two included adapters for different sized bottles. I use the normal soda bottle size adapter. A full 3 liter bottle of water lasts about a day to a day and a half if constantly on. It does a nice job at supplementing my PureGuardian 4500 humidifier. My house is all wood so humidity is important to me.
The castors on the bottom allow for an easy glide across the floor. Almost too easy sometimes as I often will put it on a small wooden side table and the slightest push or pull can bring it very close to the edge. Castor locks would have been appreciated.
The general construction and design are fine. Cord is plenty long. Included remote controller works fine and comes with battery. The toggle buttons feel a little cheap and sometimes you have to push like you mean it to turn something on or off (with exception to the unit power button which has actual on/off positions). The unit also has a built in filter for the back so it does clean the air a bit at least.
Possible limiting factors:
- The fan noise is definitely noticeable when on high setting so don't expect a "whisper quiet" unit. I don't mind the white noise.
- The humidifier reservoir itself can become over full sometimes and leak onto the floor, but if you pay attention to it there shouldn't be a problem. It's not leaking from the pipe itself, just spilling over as it were.
- The oscillation motor can sometimes emit a clicking or creaking noise which is quite evident. I don't know if that's normal or if it's just a small flaw of my unit, but it's not enough to bug me. You can always shut it off.
- This unit has a 1500W max draw which means it does need a dedicated circuit. That basically means that if you have this plugged in and use another appliance on the same circuit (such as from an outlet on the same wall) it will kick your breaker off or possibly fry something. So just pay attention to what and where you're plugging things in when in use. I haven't gotten a solid cycle of bills to see how well this "saves" on energy, but I'm really using it more so I spend a little more on electricity than fuel/oil.
-This unit isn't as ascetically pleasing as some of the other units I have seen, especially the LifeSmart infrared heaters.The button array and display are reminiscent of an appliance from the seventies. The wood stain would look a little better darker I think. I have seen a similar wattage LifeSmart heaters that also worked very well and looked a lot better. So if you care about the design and color of your furnishings you may opt for the LifeSmart, but you'll miss out on the extra functionality of this unit with the humidifier and oscillator.
I will update as I use this in more situations and know what the final damage is from its use in my electric bills. Stay warm!
Have gotten two bills since purchasing. Both where about 50$ more than normal, but that's also taking into account the energy used by the supplementing oil furnace/boiler. My oil tank was at 7/8 and now is about 5/8 which is a much slower decrease than last year already (even though it's started out colder this year so far) This is with the unit set on auto for pretty much 24/7 unless it's a clear sunny day (passive solar heating does wonders in my house) All in all it will definitely prevent me from having to refill my oil tank halfway through the winter like last year so it's still a positive purchase for my situation. Hope this helps, I'll keep posting on it.
Heater is still running fine and is still on pretty much 24/7. We have gotten some significant cold snaps here in NY (consistently below 0F w/ wind chill) and this heater performed okay at keeping the temp in my house above 60F (what my thermostat is set to). The heater can only work as good as my insulating job and it's doing how I thought it would for the situation. During the coldest colds my furnace was still kicking on every so often, but only the lower part of the house since it is very large and open. The loft still stayed 2-4 degrees warmer than the rest so it's performing in that aspect. I have become a little more disappointed with the humidifier attachment. It now leaks out the bottom of the unit causing me to have to put rags down to soak up the resulting water. I think this is because of splash droplets from the ultrasonic disc falling through the fan hole, but haven't been able to pinpoint it. The humidifier still works fine as long as it's kept de-calcified, but the leaking is a little irking because of how much more this unit was than the one w/out the humidifier on it. If I can't stop the leak, then I'm dropping this from 4 stars to 3 on my next update. Ta ta for now.
