I bought this after buying two of the Vornado whole room heaters, because I wanted something to warm my above-garage craft nook.
It's important to note that this heater is not for a room. It says that on the box. I think some previous reviewers thought it was for a whole room. It serves to heat a desk area. If you buy this for a room, you will be disappointed.
It's perfect to warm up my little crafting nook. I keep it at my feet and it works nicely.
I have the white one. It's basic.
I love that it has a cool touch exterior casing, you can hardly hear the fan, it turns off and on as it needs automatically, and it has an auto-off feature to switch off if tipped or even bumped.
I feel safe with this heater since I have three kids and a dog.
This heater works great for small spaces. Its only 750 watts but does a great job of keeping my bedroom warm on low, 350 watts at night when the central heat is off. I have had no problems with this unit and just like other Vornado products I own I am impressed!
Bought this unit for use under my desk at the office because my old (only one year old) heater was on its way out. This one is much quieter and gets my cubicle warm much faster. I only bought this particular one because it was on clearance at my local Target store, but I like it so much I think I may buy one of its larger cousins for use in my home.
I bought this little heater last year after returning a different brand from a different store that didn't work well at all. I love Honeywell products, always have had good success with them and this one is no exception. This heater has literally saved me in my drafty old apt! I have heating in my ceiling, but it just doesn't do the job, especially with our cold Cali winters now-Brrrrrr.
My heater is still going, had it now one year and it runs great. The noise doesn't bother me, you get used to it, just like having an air purifier. I love that it has a safety shut-off so if it is bumped into at all, it automatically shuts off. Also the timer on it is a great option especially at night so you don't have to worry about dozing off with it on. I am now going to purchase another one to have warming up another room! Definitely an excellent buy! Highly Recommend It!!!
This petite ceramic heater from Honeywell is very efficient at producing a lot of heat. I work in a cold office and put the heater just under the desk. It heats up the room in no time and is fairly quiet. I've also had an air filter from Honeywell for several years, and that is also excellent and reliable.
Very awesome heater.cuts on and off when it reaches the desired temp. You will be amazed at the size of room or rooms it will heat. I don't usually write reviews but I have tried other heaters and this one beats all.
I have had this heater for about 4 weeks now. The website says it isn't sold in stores, but I bought mine from a store. Anyway, our furnace is only working when it wants to and with freezing temperatures outside you need something to keeps you warm. I was browsing the portable heater aisle and compared reviews for all of the models. This brand had the best, so i went with that and now a month later I am toasty warm. I put it in our basement family room that has cement floors and two small windows that i know let some cold air in through cracks. It took about an hour to heat that huge area up, but i was honestly surprised that such a small unit could do a good job. I took it to my bedroom and i had to turn it down because i was practically melting!
I've had other heaters that were twice this ones size and didn't half as good of job. It is also reasonably quiet as far as heaters go. So if you have the money to spend buy this one, it won't let you down!
It does not get hot to the touch and if it is knocked over, it shuts off. With kids and pets, that is a good thing. You set it at the temp you want the room and it automatically keeps it at that temp.
I bought this heater after searching online for 2 weeks, and after reading many reviews I (thankfully) chose this one! I honestly did not think a heater this small would be able to do the job right, and stay as quiet as it does... WOW, was I pleasantly surprised! Not only is this thing outrageously quiet, but it also gets any room warm quick and keeps it at a great temperature. This heater is going to save me a ton during the winter...(im not a big fan of the cold!) ... :)
As I've been told.... "You pay for what you get!"
After getting the vornado 184 tower fan, it was time to try out this heater and replace our Lasko tower heater. I have to say, I'm very impress with this product. It's a lot quieter than the Lasko tower heater and it actually heats the whole living room plus more. Overall, I love the fact that it maintains the temperature in the room keeping it nice and cozy instead of it feeling to hot or cold. The only gripe I have about the Icontrol heater is when the fan is on low, it makes this clicking noise. It's not to bad, but if I'm just reading a nice book I can hear this heater's clicking noise that could be annoying.
I was surprised that this unit is sturdy, quality metal construction and attractive.
Perfect for taking the chill off my 15 x 17 bedroom or 22 x 20 family room without having to engage the costly heat pump.
The controls and indicators are especially satisfactory. The room temperature and mode of operation remain visible after the TVH is powered on.
Compared to my Vornado iControl this TVH 500 is noticibly noisier. That said, I liked this model so much that I immediately ordered another one.
We have a large room appox 20x20 with 12' ceiling. It really helps make the area comfortable on a cool day/evening without having to turn on the furnace. The remote is an added bonus for a large space as you don't have to get up and adjust it when needed. I like that the heater itself does not get hot. With pets in the house, I don't have to worry about them getting too close or knocking it over.
TL; DR version:
Exceptional quality. Super quiet operation. Does exactly what it says it does. Reliable. Features are convenient. Pricey but it's saved me hundreds of dollars in heating so it's more than paid for itself.
I've had my Vornado for a few years now (TVH 500) and am looking to buy another one just like it or upgrade to the TVH 600.
I love this thing. I don't have to worry that I'll bump into it and get a burn. Or that it'll get knocked over (it's super stable and quite difficult to knock over).
Where I live, the wall heaters are horrible and inefficient. This heater has saved me hundreds of dollars a month in heating bills during winter. I love the thermostat - I never have to get up to adjust it and because it's so efficient, I don't worry about a crazy electric bill if I forget to turn it off before going to work. It's super quiet and while it might not be the prettiest thing in the world, it isn't ugly.
I'm writing this review because I really love this heater. And while it's cool that consumers get to read about complaints so they can make an educated purchase, I felt compelled to speak well on this heater's behalf so that they can get a more balanced view on the product. This is actually the first review I've ever written on a website.
My only complaints are that it's a bit pricey and the beep sound when a button is pressed annoys me. But it's hard to complain too much because the quality and features are great - I feel so spoiled by this product that even though there are lower-priced Vornados, I don't want anything less than this particular model; I'm that attached to it. It's more than paid for itself many times over. I'm only buying a second one because I took the first one to work. Turns out, my new job has me working with a bunch of polar bears who love to crank up the ac - even in the winter.
I purchased this for under my desk at the office. I love it. It has two fan settings and adjustable heat and turns off so that my feet are not overheating. I LOVE this little heater. I may just have to get another one for home.
i pay alot for expensive heater and they dont do the job doesnt heat instantly like indirect heat who know what they might do to you indirectly this one is so affordable [...] with a thermostat all natural heatthey blow cool air in the back but i got use to it make more of this and i am happy
This space heater works GREAT. i use it to heat my bedroom, which it seems to do well in the winter considering that i have 5 windows and so winters have usually been unbearably cold and i'd have to wear jackets in the house. I like that it circulates the heat, but i think it works best when i close the door to keep the heat in my room, even though it advertises that it can heat a living room (very open) i don't think that's its best use. I feel like with this heater i get an even amount of warmth throughout my bedroom and it's a reasonable temp (75). Some of my favorite features are that it's quiet and safe. It turns off if picked up/tipped over, will turn off if the room has reached the "reasonable tempurature" to prevent overheating and also that there's different settings that can be adjusted for how much heat or energy usage! I feel bad that this product hasn't done wonders for the other reviewers but it definitely has done wonders for me!
Our kids' bedrooms were quite cold, MN winters, and we wanted a safe space heater for them. Requirements were, Cool touch exterior and tip-over auto off.
This heater meets both of those requirements.
It's quiet...you can barely tell it's on. Also, it cycles off and on, as needed, to heat the room. But it isn't obvious when it clicks on and off. Our daughter is a light sleeper and it does not bother her.
We got white...pretty basic.
Price was a tad spendy for us, but we knew the Vornado name from the fans they make and trusted the brand. The heaters have lasted all winter being used every night for 10-12 hours. Worth every penny.
