Do not waste your money on this under performing heater
Purchased this DeLonghi 2400w heater from Harvey Norman just before winter of 2016. We generally have our heater sitting no more than 2 metres away when watching tv. You would not even know this heater was in the room!!! And that is running it on the highest temp. I am not exaggerating when i say if you are more than 1 metre away, you can not even feel the fan pushing air. And the fan is so loud, you need to hear it to believe it. In the end we used it for 1 month, then i went and purchased a Goldair radiant heater for half the price, & it absolutely leaves the DeLonghi garbage for dead!!!! This product is the absolute definition of "all show, and no go" Save your money & don't even consider this garbage. Rob.
It's great for small to medium rooms, don't expect this heater to heat up the whole house but for a bedroom / living room with closed space no open doors it would take roughly half an hour to get warm or hot even. Comes with a remote which is even better, Best choice in my opinion 5/5 :-)
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
I've only had the heater two days and when I tried to switch the temperature down tonight a yellow key appeared beside the temperature and it stopped working. Now I can't switch it back on. Even if I unplug it first it seems to remember the setting. Does anyone know what the key means and how to get rid of it?
ok so i bought this heater. and i cant believe how toxic the smell of the plastic is? did anyone else find this??
