Casters can be removed and stored within the bottom of the unit, securely for storage.
Cord has storage compartment with a closing door, which latches securely.
Four Heat settings.
Documentation is a little dated, refers to the switches on the unit being a rotary type dial control.
While the product description does mention a circulation fan, I don't see one - and frankly I'm glad it doesn't seem to have one. It's silent, totally silent. Setting switch 3 (Bottom Element) to ON (375 Watts), more than ample to heat my entire upstairs. A pleasant slow event heat.
The product isn't UL listed, but it is ETL listed. There is an overheat circuit interrupt with a button on the back of the unit, and sensitive tip over cut-off switch. Very pleased with the safety of the unit overall.
The unit functions in two ways, first is the reflective heat you can see and feel when the unit is ON; it feels like warm sunshine. Second, it functions as a convection heater; air passes through from the cold floor up through the unit and is released via a grill on the top of the unit.
Switch 3 - Bottom Element
Switch 2 - Top Two Elements
Switch 1 - Second From Bottom Element
No temperature markings, does have a very wide travel path; so accurate temperature control is very easy.
Most heaters of this type are two settings only, ~1000 Watt, and ~1500 Watt. This results in good warmth, but results in the area in front of the unit being warmer than the rest of the room.
When I purchased, there were only two reviews on this unit. One review was particularly harsh and gave a One-Star due to the misprint about the fan. I decided to take the plunge and buy the heater anyway; very glad for my decision to buy.
On high the top and front get very hot, heat just pours out of the top and also almost as much in the front. The infrared effect seems similar on low as it does on high, so the immediate warmth effect is not much better on high, although the thermometer sure does move more on high.
This Optimus H-5300 is very well built and appears will last a long time. It is decent looking also, and I like the switches. The different settings use different infrared tubes, so when one burns out, you can start using a different one. This should extend the longevity of this. Not sure if the quartz tubes can be replaced easily.
I highly recommend this heater.
In actual use I found the 4 power levels are not really needed though because the lower 2 settings are not strong enough to heat a room very much. So you'll probably be using the full power setting most of the time anyway.
Most radiant heater have a lot of heat output from the front while on this model most heat goes out the top. The heat is still generated but it happens to exit out the top of the unit. This will gradually heat up the room but the radiant (directional) portion of the total heat is not very strong. I'd estimate about 500 watts comes out as radiant heat through the front while 1000 watts exits out the top. This will heat a small to medium sized room nicely but it's not a very strong "radiant" heater due to how it's designed.
The heat coming out the top is quite hot and makes a bit of wind due to the hot air rising. That's why it has no fan. It doesn't need it. The air goes straight up as a column of air that rises up towards the ceiling and it really does make some wind in the process. The total heat into the room is not affected by having a fan or not.
It's basically a radiant heater with aluminum heatsinks mounted next to the radiant elements that gather most of the heat. Then natural convection blows it out the top. I'd prefer a more directional design so I can point it where I want the heat to go but it's fine overall.
Naturally you can't heat an entire garage with a single 1500 watt heater as others have observed. There is simply not enough BTU's in any 1500 watt heater to do it.Read more ›
