This is a small heater for personal use only, it is only 800w power usage or 400w if you use one bar. I normally use only one bar which is good enough to warm yourself up if your within one metre. The running costs are quite good, 400w = 13c/hour, 800w = 26w/hour. Cost was $29 at Big W,

GOOD HEAT & PORTABLE
$29 from a BIG W.I have used 2 months Not burning hot to touch...Using 1 bar mostly is fast to heat up a average sized room & user safe..OK to put on a table in a corner..if concerned about kids...Quite a neat,handy,compact,good heat heater for a low price Very pleased with purchase..
Simple personal heater works looks good
Small heater works well for heating a bathroom or small area or as personal heater. Good for 2 people. Comfortable feeling type of heat. Ember coloured orange glow. Small footprint, doesnt take up much room. The grill style reminds me of old fireplace grills. Cheap at $30. Doesnt smell. Exactly what I wanted. One knob, 2 settings, one bar or two. Simple operation. Turns off if it is knocked over. But grill gets hot, would be concerned if it fell on something flammable, supervise pets and small kids. Taken off one star as its not powerful enough to heat a big room. Very happy. Thanks Goldair.
Works if you sit on it
I bought this to take the chill off the air in the bathroom. Unfortunately, it throws virtually no heat at all and lucky to feel any ambiance even if standing on top of it. The bathroom is only 2.5 m x 2.5m and it has to be left on for at least 1 hour to have any affect. Don't bother buying there's got to be better out there.
When first purchased, wait a little while for it to heat up as it is new, don't panic however afterwards it won't take long to heat up anymore. It can warm up the area near it but not the entire room. I use it to warm my legs under the table. It gets hot really fast but when you turn it off the heat disappears really fast, the heat doesn't linger so you have to keep it on if you want to stay warm. It has a setting if it falls, it will automatically turn off. Not safe around children as it is easy to turn on and the grids get hot (supervision is adviced)
Questions & Answers
I have been using the heater from the past two months and I usually leave it on under the first setting. I have noticed that the first bar has a small crack sort of a thing and it making spark noises. Is this normal?
Of course not-! Mine has no faults so take yours to shop & show it..If it seems faulty it will be replaced.Had no troubles with mine & is a good,not to hot heat over winter
Take it back for sure, and get a replacement or refund. I have had mine for a couple of months now and no problems, its a good size, a good price and cheap to run.
Is the outside case of this heater made of plastic or metal? If plastic, how many hours can you use the heater before the plastic becomes unsafe?
