Top Heater / Fan
Had this for over a year now and it seems to work a charm! Cant recommend this enough!
For the price and the options it has, it is a total gem. Have had ceramic heaters in the past, but the fact that the temperature can be adjusted (even using a remote control) and its eco mode function, make it a really good heater. Fan option is also available although very basic.
Surprised with some of the negative reviews on here.
Best fan heater I have had!
I love this heater. Digital temp is great and able to set it at 18, low power, eco and it does a brillant job of taking the chill off the room. Heats the room extremely fast and keeps it cosy without being stuffy. Looks nice aswell. Reviewer below has obviously never used a fan heater, or ever used one correctly. Your not meant to feel the direct heat from it, it heats the air in the room...

OK, but not wow.
This review is for the DeLonghi tower ceramic fan heater. My overall impression of this model is that it's disappointing. I had to assemble it myself with screws that were missing from the inside the box. When I made a customer service inquiry to Delonghi au they said they don't stock the screws. This model remains non operational without screwing in the base for the pedestal. Why am I mentioning this? Because you would expect more or better quality control of such a high priced and high end product.
You will need to assemble this fan heater...but I was disappointed to discover that the pedestal as well as the rest of this heater is made of plastic. This is unacceptable considering how much I paid for it. This does not appear to be a robust heater. One false move and this low quality plastic can crack or break. The plastic is white and white plastic turns a horrible yellowing discoloration over time. This is a bad manufacturing choice. However the new modern design is attractive in a black and white colour scheme. So it look appealing in the house. This model has oscilatng feature and its operation is quieter but only slightly. Plastic does wear more quickly than metal and give it some time this heater will become noisy. It features a digital LED display and the highest heat setting is displayed at 32°. The fan operation is smooth and only slightly quieter than other fan heaters. This model also has a remote control which is simple to operate. The fan operation is also quieter but only slightly than other fan heaters. At an overall power rating of 2400 watts the fan does push out a lot of warm air but only on the highest settings. I would've thought that it would've produced a lot more warm air or twice as much warm air from this tall high powered heater. I had this fan heater positioned near where I was sitting,1.2 meters close and I can only feel the hot air at the highest heat settings.

Questions & Answers
ok so i bought this heater. and i cant believe how toxic the smell of the plastic is? did anyone else find this??
My de longhi ceramic heater works fairly well - but the remote is another story. I have removed the battery cover (as per the instructions) to peel off the thin film that protects the battery but replacing the cover appears to be impossible! there is no screw thread or obvious retaining lugs and even aligning the cover with the printed icons on the back of the remote is futile. Am I the only user to have this problem?
what is the quietest electric heater to run?
I haven't used many other fan heaters, so really can't say how the TCH8093ER compares. I can tell you that I have not been bothered by the fan noise, which doesn't increase in volume as the temperature is increased. It is certainly quieter than any other fan heater that I have owned. Unfortunately, you can't try the fan heaters in store, before buying so comparing the fan volume & intrusiveness is not usually possible in store (perhaps you could ask the salesperson if you could try the models that you like, before buying).
Sorry that I can't be of more help.
I don't think the delonghi is overly bad with its fan. The nature of any fan is that it blows air so there is always a rushing air sound, though somehow the newer Dyson heater or combo heater/cooler fans have very little sound... I think that's the next one I would buy but they are costly. $200 for the delonghi compared to $600 or more for the Dyson. The other options are coil or upright heaters with oil components etc, they tend to be silent but in my research weren't as energy efficient. It's a real shame you can't test them in store because they really are a hit and a miss some times, you can exchange most so be critical when you first buy and utilise the right to be satisfied.
