Honeywell Ceramic Heater with Remote

Still using one of those old oil space heater, this will be a nice upgrade.


If it’s anything like the model I have (which is virtually identical, but just a couple years old and looks very slightly different) it is surprising how much of a NON-fire hazard it is. It’s weird, but it really doesn’t get that hot. I mean, it’s nothing you should leave unattended just to be safe, but it’s nothing like the old school crap you’re thinking of.

1500W? You better hope the wiring inside your walls can handle that kind of current draw for extended periods of time. Otherwise, you’re liable to be a David Byrne lyric statistic.

Good Deal
Here is the Manufacturer Web Page for this Heater
Retail Price is $59.99
Nice Woot

By the way, Thermostat in this unit is completely inaccurate .

Waiting around for Saturday’s kickoff event eh? Me too.
Headed up there tomorrow actually.

As for me, I got one of the heaters. This will work quite nice in my bedroom which is at the opposite end of my house than my natural gas ventless freestanding fireplace.

Does it sense the room temperature, or its own temperature?

Most heaters have the thermostat built-in and shut off when the heater gets hot. Not any good for maintaining the room temperature!

this is very helpful. thanks. i live in an old building with a reaaaly old electrical “situation”… i’ll make sure to plug it into it’s own circuit with no extension chord :slight_smile:

if you stare at the screen and let your eyes unfocus, you’ll see a ‘IIII’ instead of an ‘IV.’ Ludacris.

Haha, cold here in VT too… Warming up though (weird that right now it’s warmer than it was all day yesterday… and I think Wed. too)… We’re at 10 with -6 wind chill right now.

I don’t know what desert you live in, but California deserts can get pretty chilly after dark.

It looks like most have good luck and like it - but there seem to be a clump with bad thermostats - that just shut down.

Five year warranty is great, but what is the procedure for returns?

We use oil-filled radiators, and like them. (Lakewood, still assembled in the US!.) What they can’t do, however, is heat large areas quickly or thoroughly. For that you need a fan-forced heater, so I’m in for two - just for limited use in the basement and to warm my legs here at the computer…

Is Honeywell a good company?..

Does this have a fan on it to circulate the air, or is it just a radiant heater?

Other than being Canadian, yes.

The Phoenix concrete and asphalt desert radiates heat all night long…

I was going to get one for my office – too bad, last time I put a small heater like this in the room it tripped the breaker and shut off 4 computers and 3 $15,000 + copiers / printers… very very tempting, but can’t take the risk of breaking (shat).

Please stop shopping at walmart and support fair wages :slight_smile:

I want this heater but I got one with a thermo on it

That’s what I needed to know – thanks very much. I’d trip my circuit breaker with this, which is too bad. My studio is little but COLD.
