Rated 4 out of 5Â by givensj Works well, but...
We purchased this model a couple of years ago at a different store and it worked well for two winters before no longer properly heating the room. When it came time to replace it, we decided to use the same model/brand. It has been working well so far this fall/early winter, but we haven't had extremely cold weather yet. I will say this, the room is a large room with high ceilings and this little heater has managed to keep the room comfortable without increasing our electric bill significantly.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Perfect room heater
I bought this for my elderly parents after they researched room space heaters on consumer review sites. This heater is more expensive than many; but ithat is because it is that much better. It is easy to move from rooom to move (many don't really have handles or are bulky), is sturdy, stable, safe and does the job! I'd buy a few as gifts if they were a little less expensive but if price is not a huge issue and you want the best rooom heater out there, this is the one.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by traveller37 Some of these models last longer than others
In about 10 years, we have purchased 5 of several similar models. The first one, after using 4 years, we gave to a friend, who is still using it. The second one lasted a couple years. The third one quit in 3 months, but we had thrown the receipt away, never dreaming one would quit in such a short time, based on the other 2. The next one lasted a little over a year, then started making noises, and the fan quit. The one we have now is about a year old, and seems to be OK. So it's hard to say how long one will last. Love them, just wish they all lasted as long as the first one.

Our Vornado fan is a god-send! We started using our fan as a heater in the winter for my sonÃ¢â¬â¢s room at night. It does a fabulous job of keeping the temperature in the room constant without getting too warm. The added benefit that we didnÃ¢â¬â¢t realize is the very subtle sound of moving air was extremely relaxing and helped our son go to and stay asleep at night. In fact, we use it year round and just turn the heat element off so that the sound is constant. Even in the summer months, it does wonders keeping the air in the room circulating and fresh. We love our Vornado fan!
