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.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Preparing for my second winter in Montana, I studied Consumer Reports before purchasing a space heater to take the chill off the bathroom. When it turned on, the Holmes heater was great, but it only wanted to turn on with certain outlets in my house and did not like the bathroom. Finicky from the beginning, now 10 months later it will not turn on at all so it is going to the trash. Safe products are important, but turning on is more important.

Must Be Reset If Moved

Comment:
This is an okay heater, but I much prefer the Holmes HFH136 compact heater fan, that one is small, quiet and nice. This Holmes required that you reset it after moving or the VERY BRIGHT BLUE DISPLAY will continue to blink. It is on the bulky side of small, but does have a GFI so if using in the bathroom it would probably be a good choice.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
