Heat right in front of it only
on September 19, 2011
When I first started it up, it smelled like it was burning, but the smell went away within a few minutes. This happened the first few times I started it up.
It's hard to feel the heat on the first blower setting. The second setting works well to heat the air right in front of it, however after about 3 hours of continuous use, the temperature of the heat blowing out started to diminish. I use it to heat my feet, but if I move my foot a few inches away, I can't feel the heater anymore. I bought this for my office and it doesn't really work to keep even my chair area warm, so, I'm still searching for an office heater.
A great feature is that it automatically turns off if it is knocked off its base, preventing fire hazards. The fan is audible, but it's a low hum that's easy to tune out and not disturbing. Normally, I would give this less than 3 stars based on functionality, but it does about what I'd expect for the price.
