    OK but really noisy


    I bought this because I like Delonghi products and it was priced at the premium level. I am suffering from buyer's remorse. It heats OK and looks nice but it is the noisiest fan heater I have owned and I've had many over the decades.

    I'm not sure if it's a basic design issue or I have a bad item. I think the fan is out of balance so you get a lot of resonance on top of the fan noise. Forget about using this in the bedroom at night. It will keep you awake. Even on the so-called silent setting it is just about as noisy as the high setting.

    The cheap Kambrook it replaced was quieter. I should have spent half as much at Bunnings. I would have had a better outcome.

    Not recommended.

    Best buy for winter


    Cannot go a single winter without this thing as it keeps the room warm for hours with just 30 minutes of on-time. It is also very safe as it will automatically turn off if accidentally knocked over. It has two knobs which are easily turnable and simple to use straight out of the box but the reason that I am giving it a 4 star instead of a 5 star is because I wish that it had a timer so I could leave it on for a bit when I go to sleep instead of having to get out of bed.

    Good heater for bathroom


    We've had this heater for almost 2 years and use it in the bathroom in winter. To date we've had no issues.

    The only thing I find is that it's quite a dust catcher and needs constant attention to ensure that it's operating at its optimal performance.

    It's an attractive unit and relatively quiet to run.

    OK but disappointing from such a high end product

    Ok for the price


    I paid $99 for this heater at HN so considering the price I was expecting to be amazed. It does the job of heating a small room ok, although it dries the air with it fairly fast. It's fairly loud, you can't have it on at settings that do any heating without it being a noise nuisance. The way I use it to pre-heat my room maybe 10-15 minutes before bed, if you're doing something similar it's not a bad purchase. Long term though I'd get something else.

    For small rooms only


    Reasonable for small rooms, noise levels tolerable for someone who needs noise to mask tinnitus.
    Takes about half an hour to warm a long rectangular room at max settings, then down to 2nd setting or silent to maintain warmth.

    Here's hoping it will last given the price I paid for it ($79)




    Noisy. Not silent at all.poor heating. Will cover only small areas but too annoying noise.Only suitable for bedrooms when you dont care about noise. Pretty basic with no extra features. Would probably spend little more and get better product. Low setting quiter but next to mone heating. Very disappointed. Don'togo for this.

    How to prevent/remove dust build up

    1 answer

    Hi Tess,
    THis is a great little heater. When i'm not using mine I store it in an old pillow case and place it in the cupboard to minimise the dust. To clean i just use the vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment so it sucks all the dust in as it moves out with the brush. Have an awesome day.
