Comment:
I bought the first one of the last year based on good reviews and cost, I use it in the bathroom (especially at night when the house thermostat is set low) as a spot heater for the very quick heat it delivers. I bought a second one this year to use at my home office desk placing it about 2 feet away. Very happy with this heater and especially the cost, I plan to buy a 3rd.

Comment:
I wanted to leave a comment on the service of the Honeywell company. I bought two heaters and one of them went out after a couple of months, it just died. I called Honeywell customer service and they replaced it no questions asked. I didn't have to return the defective unit. Very good service. I use the heaters in my bed room and bathroom and it is a good heater for these smaller rooms. Larger than that, it does a questionable job. The thermostat works in a small area, but if in a bigger room, you need to turn it up higher than 72 degrees for it to work. Over all I am pleased with the product, but I question the longevity of the heater, as I have read on here and Amazon that many go bad, mine included. I would not buy this product again, because of that. Although it has a good price, you wouldn't lose much if it does fail.
