CONTROL AT A DISTANCE
Change the temperature, turn it off, or even program your heater settings without having to get up from already cozy, tucked-in position.
Set up to a 12 hour timer that automatically shuts off when it reaches the number of hours you have programmed.
This blower is so quiet, you’ll hardly notice it’s on. The state-of-the-art 7 inch blower generates high pressure which allows it to move large volumes of air at a lower speed.

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 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. 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 do not 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 have got a heater that is superior in safety. 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. Dr. Heater Delivers 60% more heat than other 1500-watt heaters. 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. 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. 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. 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. You can also manually set the heater to run on High or Low all the time or with a timer. 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.

RAN OUT OF HEATING OIL!!! THE REAL TEST!!!!
Yes, yes you read that right. I ran out of heating oil. The gauge got stuck and was reading incorrectly and well I ran out. Didn't realize it until the house started feeling chilly and I tried the thermostat and of course the oil furnace tried but just wouldn't fire.
Here's the real craptastic deal it was -14* outside!!! So what to do what to do? I could've went to the gas station and bought 15 gallons of diesel to get by with until the fuel supplier could fill my tank, OR I could put these heaters to the test and save the run for diesel as a backup plan... You guessed it I put these heaters to the test!!!
I turned up the heater in the living room to 75* and pulled the heater out of my bedroom and placed it at the far end if my hallway set on 75*. My house is what's referred to as a ranch style for visual of internal layout. Then I waited...
The hallway of course was toasty fast, bedrooms warmed up in time to be cozy before the boys had to get up for school. My living room of course was toasty cozy warm and about the time I needed to get the boys up for school the kitchen was warm as well.
For two days I heated my 1300 square foot 1974 vintage stick built no updates home with just two of these heaters and we were totally toasty cozy warm!!!! There living room heater didn't cycle a lot but it did cycle and we got by on electricity.
My heating oil tank is now full and I've got a painful bill to pay but I'm feeling downright stoked with the knowledge that I can hear my home if that need arises again. Next project is to order up a new fuel gauge and swap that out.
So there you are Amazon a real world test of two of these heaters in sub zero temps keeping my little ones and the rest of my family warm and cozy! Other than the mental knowledge of knowing we were without heat from the furnace no one but the wife knew until I told them what was going on.
And yes I did actually go to the gas station the next day and bought 15 gallons of diesel just in case and put that in my heating oil tank. I ain't stupid and wasn't going to potentially compromise my families health and safety in the interest of an experiment.
For my two heaters 10/5 stars and I hope Amazon keeps selling these and the quality stays at the least as good as my heaters are!!!!
I wouldn't expect any more updates until these heaters give me an issue or crap the bed totally.
Thanks for reading and I sincerely hope so my updates, initial review, and information I've shared along the way with my experiences with my heaters are helpful to more and more people!
***END OF UPDATE****
This heater is still going strong keeping the drafts out of the front room!
It cycles as it should and has yet to give us any problems. As a matter of fact it's performed so well that I ordered up another for the colder bedroom just the other day! My thermostat definitely doesn't fire the oil furnace as often with that heater running and I'm really noticing the difference this winter already!
I could go on but suffice it to say I really love this heater and it's performance has been at worst equal to my expectations but really after using it all this time it's been beyond my expectations! Putting my money where my mouth is my second one (paid full price etc just like this one) is slated to arrive tomorrow and I'll review that one after some use and update in the spring.
***End of update****
We ordered this heater for our living room in hopes of countering drafts and cutting our heating oil bill. We live in the cold North Midwest and staying warm for these California kids is pretty important. Add to that at 42 we've got another baby so coming into this passed winter we wanted to make sure everything was good and warm in our home.
A little more background, our home was built in the early 70's and really hasn't had any major updates since. No dual paned windows etc and let's face it these older homes weren't exactly insulated to modern standards! The living room was drafty and you could feel the cold from across it especially if the wind was blowing. So enters the heater into our lives.
Originally we bought a used infared heater that lasted about a month before it went TU. So the missus found this one on Amazon and read the reviews compared to others etc etc etc and we ordered it. To say we were pleased with it is an understatement! As winter got colder it continued to put the previous heater we had to shame! Gone were the drafts and the living room actually became a living room.
We set it at 71* and left it there on auto. It cycled on and off as needed and actually ran less than the previous heater. It was fairly quiet and while I could hear it six feet away it was a mellow quiet noise of the fan not a loud obnoxious sound. I didn't have to turn up the TV any louder than my usual volume level. So noise was really a non issue.
The housing itself is attractive, controls are intuitive, and the supplied remote was a nice touch. Heater doesn't take up a lot of room and the case/housing remains cool to the touch to the point of I can put a cold beer on it it really doesn't get warm any faster than setting on the counter. Obviously this is without warm air blowing directly onto it!
The heat coming out of the heater wasn't hot so there is no risk of toddlers burning their fingers on the grill. Just a nice warm heat that does the job surprisingly well!
My house furnace didn't cycle as much as normal and I believe my heating oil bill went down this passed winter. I didn't document just how much oil we used the previous and compare it to this last bit you get a feel after living in a house for so many years so you know. I didn't notice my electric bill increasing significantly either. Again I didn't compare the previous Winters bill with this last Winters but there was no surprise "oh crap!!!!" amounts. Electric bills seemed to be fairly normal.
So after using this heater thru one winter I'm pretty dang happy with it. I'm not a financially wealthy man but I don't mind spending good money for a good product either providing it delivers my money's worth. I feel this heater was a solid buy and well worth what I paid for it. I don't regret the expense at all.
If your familiar with my reviews you'll have noticed I try to give the good the bad and the ugly or indifferent and have no problem giving bad reviews even though I DISLIKE to. A bad review means I wasted money and didn't get my monies worth! This heater I feel it's a solid deal and delivers.
The only negative I can think of is due to the location of my wall thermostat the bedrooms got a little cooler than normal thanks to the furnace not cycling as often. Never cold but cool.
I can't think of anything else at the moment but should I or something happens with this heater that others should know about I'll be sure to update my review as time goes on.
Thank you for your time and I hope this review helps someone out. If you find it helpful please vote to let Amazon know so we can try to weed out those worthless reviews that serve no good but take up room. If you don't find my review helpful please let Amazon know that too! If we don't provide feedback then we keep having to sort thru piles of junk reviews to find the few that actually give relevant information.

Enough of my rant. This heater is great and I highly recommend it. I put it in the door way facing into my daughter room and leave it running all night without any issues. I set it to the desired temperature, set it to auto mode, and the heater cycles on and off to maintain that temperature. This heater is extremely quiet, my wife and I can hardly hear it from our room which is right across the hall. The only part of this unit to get hot to the touch is the metal grate where the heat comes out of--this was obviously expected because well...heat comes out of it. I have read reviews where people are complaining about how this part of the unit gets hot--those people need to be slapped. Very hot air exhausts from this part of the heater, of course it's going to be hot! Nonetheless, this little heater heats the room so well and keeps it warm all night. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these.

After purchasing one , I have now put an order in for a second one !
Recommend : "Buy" :)
Comes with those cheap plastic castors which only want to go in one direction like they have a mind of their own.
And there should be a 750 watt setting as well like many other brands. You know, be more versatile.You'd think so for the price.
