Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lisa Great heater!
Our kitchen, dining, and living room are basically one open space. We bought this heater because we live in NJ and our gas bill is killing us. We didnt expect much but the reviews were good, we were pleasantly suprised. I wont say that it keeps the whole space comfortable because it is a large space. It does however keep the living room warm and even semi heats the other 2 rooms. Also in its favor is the fact that my 2 year old is constantly messing with it and has not been hurt or broken the heater, that definitely says something for the quality of the product. My only complaint is the price because I am cheap, but it is well worth the money.

I live in the Midwest and have used Vornado whole room heaters for the past 3 winters. I turn it on in late October and shut it off in early April. I recently purchased a more expensive brand that had a 5 year warranty. In December, 2010 we had a week of single digit temperatures. The best the other brand heater could do was to maintain the room at an uncomfortable 66 degrees. I saw a display for the Vornado, DVTH model, Whole Room Heater at our local hardware store and bought one. Within an hour of plugging it in the room was a comfortable 72 degrees. With the 5 year warranty on this model I will be warm and cozy for many winters to come.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by BobE Poor Variable Output
I am familiar with variable speed fan and heat output systems and was hoping this Vornado heater would deliver on the promise of a steady, gentle heating with reduced temperature fluctuations. Unfortunately, when the unit determines that there is no need for heat output at all and the heating element turns off the fan remains on at a low speed. This causes ambient air to blow and make you feel colder than you would without airflow. In this case the Vornado whole room vortex action is a detriment, especially in small rooms. The programing should be changed to turn the fan off if there is no call for heat. If some people like the continuous fan operation then provide a user option to select it.
Beyond the undesirable continuous fan operation, the unit seems to have only two (maybe three?) stepped fan speeds when varying output, so instead of the fan ramping up or down gradually through many fan speeds, it just goes between high to low speed and thus the transition is very noticeable.
Finally, the unit makes a continuous buzz/hum that is disconcerting. It is especially prominent at low fan speed when not masked by air movement sounds. You may get used to it after a while, but itâs not good for quiet environments.
