Comment:
The cost was low, the operation safe and dependable, plus it is easy to set and use. Setting the temperature worked well. I will probably buy one that can be wiped clean, as the fan blades collect dust. I washed the fan blades when the unit was cool, and not in use afterward for summer months, by spraying water through the grill to rinse off the fan blades. I did not use it until long afterward to insure all moisture was dried out of the heater. That heater still works, but I prefer a heater designed to be cleaned of dust. The one I did not clean stopped working after 4 years, the one I washed with water, still runs fine.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I think we got this heater when my daughter graduated from college in 2005. We did her bedroom over and it had NO heater at the time. So when I say it is made to last, it has had a lot of use. It is light so we have also brought it to the kitchen to suppliment poor heat design in a very old house. Love the timer and thermostat, with -20 wind chill it's nice to set it to start up and help heat when your busy doing something else. I was actually checking Consumer Reports to see what they recommended now because I wanted to buy another small heater for another room, never thinking that this one I bought years ago, (and loved) is still being made and is no surprise to me is a CR Best Buy. Also, you will barely notice a change in your electric bill. Very nice product!

Comment:
I live in a 1900 house with old windows and no wall insulation. I can easily move the heater with me on cold days. <br />It's inexpensive enough that I'm ordering another one.
